The tooth fairy still rewards adults who keep their teeth nice, leaving grownup gifts, such as issues of the Economist and Pontiac Azteks, under their pillows. Grin and win with today’s Groupon: for $69, you get a dental-care package from Joseph P. Wiggs, D.D.S. Family and Cosmetic Dentistry (a $220 total value). The package includes the following:
- Exam (a $60 value)
- Cleaning (a $65 value)
- X-rays (a $45 value)
- Take-home whitening kit (a $50 value)<p>
Dr. Joseph Wiggs, D.D.S. and his friendly staff pay meticulous attention to patient’s needs, creating dazzling smiles within a modern, conveniently located office. After an exam and x-rays screen mouths for imperfections and molars that ping off-key from a tuning fork, hygienists clean teeth of tartar and plaque buildup cowering in their crevices. For the at-home whitening kit, patients apply a fast-acting film to teeth, which coats enamel with carbamide peroxide gel. Worn six hours a day for one week, the thin, moldable films fully contour to teeth and arch, tightly adapting to each patient’s bite and sealing gel against surfaces. The virtually invisible strips brighten smiles night or day, eliminating the need to hire neighborhood troublemakers to paint them white instead.
