The teeth are the icebergs of the skeletal system, tiny exposed tips that represent the body’s massive, concealed support structure. Today’s Groupon ensures your bones’ spokesperson sparkles: for $99, you get a comprehensive dental exam, x-rays, teeth cleaning, and custom-molded teeth whitening trays and whitening gel from First Dental, redeemable at either of their two office locations—Pineville and Huntersville.
A cleaning, exam, and x-ray packs more of a healthful wallop than a bucket of free-range, grass-fed mung-bean sprouts, especially if your idea of a daily brushing is a mouthful of sand and a hot hose of water from a Super Soaker. During the exam, a dentist checks each tooth and gum for signs of damage, before x-rays pry into the deepest secrets of the toothroots to expose cracks, cavities, and calorie embezzlement. A professional teeth cleaning then blasts away all plaque and tartar, leaving teeth sparkling and pristine.
Following the cleaning, the whitening process begins. During an in-office procedure, each patient’s unique mouthscape will be molded and reproduced in tray form in First Dental's lab. After the molds are ready, return to the office to pick up the whitening kit, which contains trays, bleaching gel, supplies, and instructions for oxidizing tooth stains to new levels of electromagnetic wavelength reflection.
