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 (a $5,200 value) at Chicago Smile Center. This Groupon is valid at the Michigan Ave., Evanston, and Park Ridge locations. The complete Invisalign treatment includes:

- three–eight follow-up visits<p>
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 exam, which lasts 45–75 minutes, includes digital x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paving the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Depending on the complexity of the job, three–eight 20-minute follow-up visits ensure straightening proceeds without a hitch. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer.

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 only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
