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 (it can run anywhere from $3,500 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $500 toward that final cost and free Vivera retainers following treatment.

About Face and More’s soothing confines invite guests to unwind with relaxing spa treatments. Custom-tailored sessions aim to pamper from crown to toe-crown, banishing stress with balancing facials, smoothing scrubs, and massages. This conscientious care extends to the products employed as well—the spa is dedicated to using environmentally safe and cruelty-free lines, such as organic, paraben-free GlyMed Plus skincare.
Portland native Dr. Gerald T. Fujii along with Dr. Lee emphasize personalized preventative care, prioritizing treatments designed to stave off future dental problems with advanced diagnostic tools such as lasers, digital x-rays, and intraoral pictures. Fluoride treatments strengthen the enamel, making teeth more resistant to decay and keeping smiles beautiful before auditions or hours spent pressing your face against a casting director’s window. Some dentists are also certified in IV sedation and oral sedation, allowing them to help anxious patients through dental implants or root canals with no pain and no recollection. The office also offers crowns at their convenient downtown location.
At City Dental, Dr. Jason Bajuscak and his team promise compassionate dental care and a relaxed visit. To help their patients feel confident about any works that needs to be done, they maintain open communication about each procedure to help allay fears. That's only where the team's work begins. An artillery of cosmetic treatments helps each patient achieve just the smile they want, whether through teeth-whitening systems such as KöR Whitening or teeth-straightening with Invisalign. They also repair teeth with Lumineers, which, unlike porcelain veneers, are reversible and don't require grinding or shaving of teeth. Whenever emergencies arise the team also keep their doors open for same-day emergency appointments, from broken teeth to needing a hug from a professional.
The Bridgeview Dental Associates themselves—Drs. Briles and Parks—have both traveled to Cambodia, volunteering with the Northwest Medical Team to brighten smiles halfway around the world. Here in Portland, the duo helm their own team to conduct services ranging from cosmetic procedures to specialized treatments such as Invisalign braces and professional dental implants to replace existing orange slices.
At Downtown Dental Care, Drs. Lance D. Bailey and Kirk Christianson combine their years of experience in general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry in an office with a compassion-oriented philosophy. The doctors demonstrate their commitment to patients by participating in not-for-profit dentistry as well as such charitable organizations such as UNICEF, Pride Northwest, and Donated Dentistry, a clinic that administers free dental care for patients without insurance.
The doctors also devote themselves to continually honing their craft. Dr. Bailey cares for kids through his training in pediatric dentistry and for seniors with his advanced education in dentures. His training in laser dentistry, IV sedation, and CEREC one-visit crowns keeps him on the cutting edge of the industry. Meanwhile, Dr. Christianson’s advanced skills restore smiles beyond just the teeth with hard and soft tissue grafting and sinus surgery.
The team works to keep patients comfortable during each treatment. Every patient who wanders through the door, or chews their way through the wall, gets treated as an individual. The doctors thoroughly explain each treatment in order to reduce anxiety. During treatments, patients can keep tabs on the outside world with a flat-panel television and a broad window, both situated in front of the operatory chair.
