Hartford Magazine recommends Dr. Yanni as a top-area dentist, and both the doctor and her qualified staff strive to keep patients comfortable as they outfit them with corrective orthodontic devices. An initial exam—including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain—paves the way for a set of traditional braces, customized teeth sheaths, or Incognito braces designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of advanced 3-D computer graphics and the sorcerous incantations of old-fashioned orthodontia. Orthodontists are trained and certified in the Invisalign process, which eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye.

Kasandra Lambert and Kei Huynh, the husband-and-wife team behind Live Well(ness) LLC, make their living with their hands. They're both trained massage therapists, and chronic pain stands little chance against their various techniques.
Kasandra specializes in deep-tissue and prenatal massage, easing away tension and helping expectant mothers cope with the physical demands of pregnancy. Kei, on the other hand, is a master of the assisted, yoga-like stretches of Thai massage. Though their techniques differ, the couple shares a common goal. "We see a lot of relief around here," says Kasandra. "People ... come in and seem very negative, but leave positive and refreshed."
General dentists, certified lab technicians, and specialists in areas from root canals to orthodontia work together on Columbia Dental’s diverse team. They safeguard smiles with a comprehensive array of services, placing special emphasis on disease prevention with rigorous exams, cleanings, and digital x-rays. However, when disease strikes, the team can treat it in-house, tending to inflamed gums and eliminating chronic pain with root canals. The staff can also straighten crooked smiles with Invisalign treatments, which are more effective than constructing mouth guards from rulers. The office accommodates hectic schedules by staying open seven days a week, with evening appointments available.
Over the past three years, a certified panel of peers has upheld their vote for Dr. Roberta Garceau, awarding her the honor of being a Windsor top dentist. Alongside her coterie of caring dental assistants, Dr. Garceau polishes pearly whites and provides valuable insight into future maintainence practices. During the preliminary exam, prospective pure-mouths can voice concerns about their teeth and gums, thereby solidifying the staff-patient bond. Postconsultation, skilled assistants arm themselves with the Sapphire Plasma Arc Curing Light, a DenMat-designed tool that can shift teeth multiple shades in about an hour's time. And, like most paper-clip-pyramid contests, the entire procedure takes place in office and is completely exempt from the rules of gravity.
Drs. Eugene Markowski and Alison Nicholes and their seasoned team of teeth technicians have been tuning-up clients’ tusks for more than 30 years. Mouth owners can brighten pearlies up to nine shades with illuminating whitening treatments performed in-office or at home. After a brief exam, techs create custom molds to fit ivory facades, ensuring whitening trays fit as snugly as Lycra shorts after a pie-eating contest. Once splints are ready, clients will either take home the molds for DIY brightening with NiteWhite kits, or kick back in dentist chairs for a one-hour in-office treatment. In-office clients are sent home with NiteWhite touch-up kits that help maintain incisors’ clean new look in conjunction with regular brushing and anonymous donations to the Tooth Fairy. At-home treatments may take up to two weeks of hour-long daily use to deliver optimal results.
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 plus a teeth-whitening treatment.
