Keeping teeth clean and white is the first and only step in coping with the fact that your skeleton is slowly escaping from your body through your mouth. Deal with it with today's Groupon: for $149, you get a one-hour teeth-whitening treatment at Dental Salon in Lincoln Park (up to a $499 value).
The staff at Dental Salon, winner of the Chicago Reader's 2011 Readers’ Choice award for Best Dentist, helps turn up smile wattage with professional teeth-whitening treatments. Using Opalescence Boost, a chemically activated gel that doesn’t require heat or UV rays, trained technicians dramatically re-pearlize chompers in roughly an hour, with the proviso that patients use their newfound powers for good, such as smiling during blackouts. After a one-on-one consultation, one of Dental Salon’s doctors oversees a trained technician while they administer the gel, which also contains potassium nitrate and fluoride to help enhance cavity prevention and lessen sensitivity. At the end of an hour, the gel can be rinsed off to reveal a dazzling set of ivories.
Dental Salon's sleek, modern office keeps extended hours seven days a week. Dental Salon accepts all major insurances, which request Dental Salon as a preferred provider in bite-mark Braille notes mailed to policy holders. On top of its sterling reputation in all things mouth related, Dental Salon also sponsors carbon-reduction and clean-energy projects with TerraPass, a carbon-offset resource.
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.
