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.
Dr. Ron Kolodziej (or Dr. K, as his patients call him) specializes in cosmetic dentistry that's family friendly, working hand-in-hand with his attentive office staff to clean, straighten, and whiten teeth. In addition to regular check-ups and in-office whitening treatments, Dr. K helps guide and support patients through long-term dental health procedures, including working through ever-popular Invisalign treatments and teaching people to say goodbye to childhood tooth fairies.
A winning smile requires more than sparkling teeth. As a dentist, Dr. Monique Mabry has dedicated nearly 20 years to protecting her patients' oral health, keeping an eye out for potential complications while she and her hygienists brighten smiles with in-office whitening treatments and straighten them out with the Invisalign system. Yet, Dr. Mabry and her team recognize that a smile's frame is just as important. This is why she and her aesthetic assistant perform lip-enhancement procedures and inject Botox and dermal fillers, reducing the appearance of creases, crow's feet, or wrinkles.
When she isn't beautifying smiles weathered by time or people mistaking rocks for rock candy, Dr. Mabry devotes herself to philanthropic efforts. In 2009, she assisted the Boston Medical Center Grow Clinic for Children in raising nearly $1 million, and gave her time to the Boston Medical Center Friends of Women’s Health
Going to the orthodontist can be an anxiety-filled experience, but it doesn't have to be. At Class One Orthodontic Associates, the friendly staff diminishes nerves by creating an environment where patients are set at ease from their first visit. They're involved in each step of their own treatment process, meeting with the orthodontist to thoroughly go over their plan before getting started. During their appointment, they receive digital x-rays, which can reduce radiation emissions by 90%. After getting their new braces, extenders, or Invisalign inserts, they return regularly for adjustments and depart with an orthodontic care package that contains bands and floss, but not flame decals for molars.
Needham Dental pampers pearly whites with state-of-the-art technologies in cosmetic, restorative, and preventative care. The welcome dental package treats teeth to a thorough professional cleaning (a $90 value) before the experienced doctor checks the oral orifice for signs of cavities, disease, and foul language (a $100 value). A set of bitewing x-rays paints a neoclassicist portrait of the body’s only visible bones (a $65 value). Alternatively, a one-hour in-office whitening session restores incisors to their ivory hue, lightening up to eight shades in one puny visit with your choice of Zoom or Venus whitening. Dr. Nandita Kapoor wields eight years of tusk-treating experience. She takes her time with patients, educating them about teeth’s needs and which moon phases boost fluoride absorption.
After serving inner-city patients with the National Health Service Corps, Dr. Joseph Lee founded Wellesley Dental Associates. While his friendly staff welcomes patients, doctors with degrees from Harvard and Tufts perform general and cosmetic procedures, such as dental implants, root canals, and routine checkups. Veneers cover uneven smiles with a porcelain façade; invisible braces ensure that teeth align; and whitening services boost shine in-office or at home. In addition to beautifying bites for a living, Dr. Lee has generously donated his services to patients in Honduras and Bolivia.
