Like glaciers and tectonic plates, teeth are slowly yet surely on the move as they attempt to turn their host’s mouth into a frozen tundra, then rip it apart like a bite-size Pangaea. Defeat your devious teeth with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get an initial Invisalign examination, including x-rays, impressions, and photos (a $375 value), plus $1,000 off the total cost of the full teeth-straightening treatment at Dental Salon.
Dental Salon's plaque-pillaging dentists fine-tune chatter factories with a wealth of tooth-tidying knowledge. The Invisalign treatment straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. The process eschews cumbersome braces for a set of clear, custom-fit, removable aligners, which are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye and are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. While the total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000), this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.

Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn over 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.
By stunting tooth decay, preventing gingivitis, and restoring mouth bones to their native tones, the dentists at Dental Salon have collected a trophy case’s worth of awards and endorsements. Visitors to the Chicago Reader’s website voted the center Best Dentist in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013. And, since 2009, the office has thrice earned the title of Premier Provider from Invisalign, an alternative to traditional orthodontia that straightens teeth with a series of invisible, custom-fit trays. Patients can speed through dental chores and paperwork thanks to the office's crew of 25 dental assistants and cheetah receptionist.
