Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process eschew cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays and photos ($325), will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.

The husband-and-wife team of Drs. Darren Tong and Mariliza Lacap has 20 years of experience in dental implants, cosmetic procedures, and orthodontics. Determined to make patients feel as comfortable as possible, the dentists and their team of seasoned hygienists, assistants, and patient coordinators first get to know patients by holding a Q&A session with each tooth before investigating them for decay and other issues. Each treatment comes with special perks, such as relaxing paraffin hand treatments. Instead of using drills, the dentists remove decay with quiet electric tools that reduce heat and vibration while conserving more of the patient’s tooth. To make sure decay is removed, the dentists follow up with laser therapy to zap away the final bits of decay that may remain. In addition to keeping adult teeth in tip-top chomping shape, the team also pays special attention to the youngest smiles with dedicated pediatric dentistry services.
At her eponymous practice, Dr. Anna Kupchik transforms smiles with both general and cosmetic dentistry. Although Dr. Kupchik skillfully handles cavities with composite and amalgam fillings, she specializes in preventive care due to its importance to oral health and heads off issues before they even manifest, focusing on patient education and advising them to brush and floss properly instead of chewing on mops. She also transforms smiles with aesthetic services ranging from in-office teeth whitening to dental veneers, which conceal discolorations and broken teeth.
