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 (a $400 value) plus $1,000 to put toward the total cost of a full Invisalign teeth-straightening treatment from Lucas Orthodontics. This Groupon can be redeemed at one of five orthodontic centers in Cool Springs, Nolensville, Belle Meade, Columbia, and Westhaven Town Center.
Invisalign 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 clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and thorough evaluation by the orthodontist ($400), will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. 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, an average of 18–30 separate aligners will need to be worn over a period of six to 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. Call your location of choice to set up an appointment.
