Gaps in teeth, like gaps in logic, tend to increase in correlation with the number of times one forgets to wear a mouth guard while wrestling a motorized bull. Keep your teeth leaning in a logical pattern with today's Groupon: for $1,399, you get the Six Month Smiles clear-braces system, including all necessary checkups, at Cornerstone Dentistry (a $3,995 value). Redeem this Groupon at the Irvine or Palm Desert locations.
Dr. Philip Chin of Cornerstone Dentistry is an expert at renovating crooked mouth architecture thanks to the advanced Six Month Smiles technique and his 20 years of experience. In just half the time it takes a traditionalist to flip through a calendar, the nearly invisible braces, composed of clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, can tighten the smiles and stabilize the poppy-seed storage units of most patients. The initial smile-restoring procedure lasts one hour, but patients will come in for monthly checkups with Dr. Chin to ensure that gaps disappear like coins at a magic convention.
Cornerstone Dentistry's office swells with elegance, with floral arrangements and large paintings adding vibrancy to muted, soothing sherbet-colored walls and ornate furniture and rugs. Patients waiting to treat their bite bones may relax on the plush lobby couch, daydreaming about a smile straight enough to attract double takes from a toolbox full of spirit levels.
For the team of dentists at Cornerstone Dentistry, cosmetic dentistry is about more than just good looks. So although he leaves mouths looking impeccable with implants, full-mouth reconstructions, and rhinestone-bedazzled canines, he never loses sight of the primary concern of any procedure—ensuring healthy relationships between the jaws, teeth, and facial muscles.
With an approach described in Palm Springs Life as "concierge health care," Cornerstone Denistry sees far fewer patients than the typical dentist or armchair psychiatrist, giving each patient greater attention. The dentists find they can maintain a higher standard of work with these longer appointment times while also building a friendly rapport with their patients. The dental group plans to open a third location in Glendale this June.
