A specialist in both general and cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Raffi Merjik brings more than 15 years of experience to every molar tooth he polishes and every bicuspid he brightens. His office uses of digital x-rays and modern endodontic technology, and new composite fillings replace old mercury fillings and carefully crafted bridgework ensures that smiles look complete.
Most artisans begin training in their craft at a very young age, and Dr. Christopher Napolitano was no different. He began his apprenticeship in transforming smiles in high school, when he crafted dental prostheses at his father's lab every summer, gathering the experience and predilection for the color white that would spur him through dental school.
Today, Doctors Napolitano and Merchanthouse lead a staff through restorative and cosmetic treatments to repair and enhance pearlies in treatment rooms fitted with cable televisions and iPod docks. Digital x-rays in those rooms expose patients to less radiation than conventional machines and enable the dentists to discover hidden problems almost instantaneously. Beyond cleanings and preventative care, the crew performs restorative procedures that leave teeth healthy and appealing in case the mayor forgets the scissors at a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer ($4,000–$7,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
