What You'll Get
Like glaciers and tectonic plates, teeth are slowly yet surely on the move as they attempt to turn their host’s mouth into frozen tundra and then rip it apart like a bite-size Pangaea. Defeat devious teeth with today’s Groupon at Fetterolf Dental Medicine. Choose from the following options:

Led by doctors Keith and Dana Fetterolf, the friendly staff at Fetterolf Dental Medicine beautify and strengthen patients’ smiles with reconstructive and aesthetic dental treatments all in the same office. An Associate Fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, Dr. Keith concentrates in surgical dentistry, including implants, as seen in his famous work on the Statue of Liberty's well-hidden veneers. Patients missing teeth benefit from implants, which fill gum gaps with synthetic teeth anchored to the jawbone. Unlike dentures, usually made yourself with painted wood, implants mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. The dentist inserts implants during surgery, which requires anesthesia and a recovery period, and the resulting implants mimic natural smiles enough to cause the missing choppers to come back and beg for their newly filled spots. Another aesthetic and practical treatment, crowns help restore cracked, decaying teeth or discolored fillings and can prevent problems from worsening. Cosmetic reconstruction services start at $1,900.
Chipped, crooked, or discolored teeth tidy up with veneers, thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over teeth to smooth uneven surfaces, conceal chips, and unify spacing. The long-lasting, stain-resistant slips come molded to patients’ teeth, concealing physical inadequacies more effectively than a carefully placed fig leaf. The treatment requires three to four visits and holds fast for the life of the tooth, since the dentist must buff off some of its natural enamel to bond the veneers.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $3,500 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $500 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during 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.
