Like glaciers and tectonic plates, teeth are slowly yet surely on the move as they attempt to turn their host’s mouth into frozen tundra and then rip it apart like a bite-size Pangaea. Defeat devious teeth with today’s Groupon: for $2,995, you get a complete Invisalign treatment, including exam, x-rays, and impressions, at Dentistry by Design in Warminster, or at Bucks Dental Associates in Chalfont (an $8,500 value).
A premier preferred Invisalign provider with 20 years of practice under her belt, Bucks Dental Associates’ Dr. Kiran Satashia straightens chompers at both locations 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 60- to 75-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment.

Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months, before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are swapped out at check-up visits every two weeks, and are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
Though Bucks Dental Associates sometimes offers a discounted rate, today's Groupon still offers the best available discount.
