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 $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Looking at his datebook, you would think Dr. Kent S. Lamoreux never gets tired. When he’s not working at his dental practice, he's teaching as an adjunct professor at the Case School of Dental Medicine. When he's not teaching, he donates his time and dental expertise to the Free Medical Clinic of Greater Cleveland. After more than 30 years as a dentist, he tried to give retirement a shot, but quickly found that he enjoyed his work even more than gardening, airplane-model building, beekeeping, or the other hobbies retired people are legally required to take up.
Happily back at work, Dr. Lamoreux’s dental practice benefits from his boundless energy and zeal. When he found he wasn't content with standard extractions and root canals, Dr. Lamoreux learned to cover the full range of dental services, from general dentistry to cosmetic and restorative types. His comprehensive knowledge base means that he can treat patients himself, which is the leading cause of the thick layer of dust on his rolodex of dental specialists.
Accredited in both general and cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Richard Betor trained under Dr. Larry Rosenthal––also known as the "Dentist to the stars" for his work treating the teeth of celebrities such as Kathie Lee Gifford and Donald Trump. Backed by a fellowship in laser dentistry from the prestigious World Clinical Laser Institute, Dr. Betor eschews the use of drills or needles in favor of Waterlase tools, which gently carve decay and deli-thin turkey slices from ailing teeth without pressure or pain. Highly-accurate fluorescence scanners allow him to examine mouths for early-stage cavities or those hidden behind crevices, and mouths may be further refurbished with a wide range of state-of-the-art aesthetic treatments such as Invisalign retainers, porcelain veneers, or dental implants.
Professional teeth-whitening products are one of the most effective ways of acquiring an eye-catching smile and much more convenient than standing perfectly still by a wall while waiting for a graffiti artist to mark up incisors with a splash of paint. Thanks to Dr. Laubmeier and his staff, visitors can flash toothy pizzazz while benefiting from the doctor’s years of experience. In order to provide safe and effective whitening services, each professional at-home whitening process requires two office appointments that last between 15 and 30 minutes.
Silvestro's team of teeth technicians is led by veteran dentist Anthony R. Silvestro, Jr., who applies a full-court press of teeth whitening services to break apart offensive teeth stains. For a smile whiter than the Queen's linens, opt for the Zoom! Whitening in-office treatment. Zoom! utilizes laser technology and Zoom! gel to comfortably erase stains and restore the mouth's natural glimmer. Do-it-yourselfers can say goodbye to coffee stains by taking home a week's worth of teeth whitening products. By letting teeth set in trays lined with a special solution for a few hours a day, discolorations will meekly take flight and go their own way, like Dumbo.
For more than 35 years, dentists at American Dental Centers have polished pearly whites and prevented dental disease with thorough exams. At each of the 14 locations that dot Northern and Central Ohio, patients walk in or schedule appointments so they don’t have to scrape off plaque using chew toys. The center maintains a 24-hour phone line so that patients can arrange to have emergencies treated as soon as possible, and it also offers a Forever White program, in which patients pay a one-time fee and then receive take-home bleaching treatments for as long as they attend their regular three- or six-month check-ups.
