- $399 for $3,000 toward Invisalign
Invisalign costs $6,422 at Edent Shira Shasho DMD; this Groupon covers $3,000 of the service.
Invisalign straightens teeth with a series of clear, removable, and custom aligners. The process begins at the dentist’s office, where, during an initial exam, the doctor snaps x-rays and takes impressions of the upper and lower teeth. In the Invisalign lab, technicians craft a set of up to 48 transparent aligners made to the patient’s exact specifications. Patients wear the removable aligners for 6–18 months, changing them every two weeks and only removing them while eating or brushing.
Throughout the treatment, patients return to the dentist’s office for routine checkups to ensure teeth continue to shift into their proper places. Read the Invisalign FAQs here.
Edent Shira Shasho DMD
Knowing that an informed patient makes a healthier patient, dentist Shira Shasho often lets guests hold a mirror while she is working so she can explain the what and how of her technique. At Edent, Dr. Shasho combines this edifying philosophy with advanced technology and pleasant comforts. Intraoral cameras capture detailed images of the mouth, which can then be displayed for the patient to view. Each station is also equipped with an LCD TV, cable, and stereo headphones so patients can catch up on their favorite TV shows while technicians handle the soap opera being played out between teeth and gums.
