As a prosthodontist, Dr. Aparna Subramanian specializes in the use of dental prosthetics to create straight, alabaster smiles. This includes using titanium implants coupled with crowns or bridges, as well as veneers that mask dental imperfections. Teeth-whitening treatments brighten dingy enamel and Invisalign trains wayward teeth to stand in formation without the outdated look of braces. Dr. Subramanian and her team also conduct routine cleanings complete with digital X-rays. They also adhere to green-minded practices, including using recycled paper products, biodegradable sterilization solutions, and making sure each patient's mouth is tightly closed when not in use.
Aside from being a practicing dentist, Dr. Alex Frade is a member of several dental associations and a former Lieutenant Dentist in the Brazilian army. At his comfortable San Rafael office, he puts his nearly 20 years of diverse experience to work while performing a full range of preventative and cosmetic dental treatments, including teeth whitening, full porcelain veneers, gum lifts, and Tooth Fairy extractions. He and his staff take time to explain dental discoveries and treatment options with each patient, making appointments as straightforward and unintimidating as possible.
Though he focuses on treating nerve, joint, and muscle issues, Doctor of Chiropractic Jonathan B. Smith recognizes that spinal adjustments alone can’t bring about total wellness. That’s why he combines his efforts with experts in other fields—such as massage therapy, acupuncture, and rehabilitation exercise—to tend to clients’ myriad needs. After assessing clients’ issues with a thorough consultation and exam, he creates a treatment plan that may pull from multiple holistic techniques, such as cranial adjusting, nerve mobilization, and traditional adjustments.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. The initial exam includes all necessary x-rays, and should Invisalign be determined to be the best option, impressions of your mouth terrain, 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 $3,900 to $6,900); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.
