An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, much to the chagrin of brokers who invested heavily in cure. Get in while prevention's still hot with today's Groupon: for $2,999, you get a complete Invisalign orthodontic treatment from Capital Smiles in Schenectady (up to a $6,200 value).
Flanked by spa-like amenities and cutting-edge imaging technology, Dr. Shiloh Lieberman and crew provide unobtrusive grin straightening in a welcoming, judgment-free atmosphere. At the onset of the process, the doctor applies 3-D computer imaging to simulate the smile-to-be, allowing patients to preview their potential results and find out whether their smile will be a boy or a girl. Over the course of 12–18 months, the custom-fitted and discreet dental decrookers realign teeth while remaining accommodatingly removable for eating, brushing, and flossing. A typical treatment spans 18–30 sets of customized aligners that are switched out every two weeks. A specialist in sedation dentistry since 1982, Dr. Lieberman regularly performs complex dental procedures such as Invisalign and granting cartoon characters functional piano-teeth.
"After a long and arduous tooth-filled day," Dr. Shiloh Lieberman writes, "I unwind at home by soaking in my custom-made, bicuspid shaped bathtub, then jumping in my molar-shaped bed and drifting off to sleep counting incisors jumping over dental floss." Such a unique and all-consuming love of dentistry is understandably necessary for a dentist who painstakingly combines 30 years of experience with top-of-the-line technology to treat visitors at his comprehensive practice. An active member in professional and philanthropic organizations, a researcher, and a university mentor who keeps school buildings' teeth bright, Dr. Lieberman tackles cosmetic and restorative dentistry from many angles in a comfortable office replete with complimentary beverages and snacks, and a DVD player and massage chair in each room. He's still passionate, however, about sports and art, and he's committed to community service, which he performs with charitable dental organization Crown Council.
