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 this Groupon: for $2,999, for you get a complete Invisalign orthodontic treatment at Grand Prix Smiles (up to a $6,000 value).
The dental professionals of Grand Prix Smiles straighten serrations with Invisalign treatments tailored to each patient. 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 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. Patients return to the office for routine checkups to ensure teeth continue to straighten without issue. 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.

Grand Prix Smiles
When a dark-haired man enters the treatment room wearing a pit-crew shirt and introduces himself, new patients often do a double take, then gaze around the room to confirm their location. It may not help that they then spy a few of Dr. Carlos Medina's racing trophies or a triptych of a Formula 1 car lining the walls, but if they were to succumb to their confusion, patrons would miss out on his attentive and knowledgeable care. With a focus on adult cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Carlos Medina and his wife, a licensed hygienist, cherish clients from the moment they walk through the door and check in on the computerized kiosk, which improves upon a traditional receptionist's efficiency and ability to remember the Tetris theme song. During routine cleanings or more in-depth treatments, patients snuggle under electric blankets and distract ocular orbs by slipping on the practice's movie goggles. Distilled water enhances the sterility of each procedure, and patients can hunker down over the Cerec machine and watch as it turns digital impressions into crowns in a matter of hours.
Carlos likes to tell patients that the only thing separating him from them is a whole lot of school; this is only partly true. Within the sleek-and-streamlined office done in grayscale shades, bursts of crimson leap from Formula 1 memorabilia, including model cars, photographs, and the doctor's racing helmet from the national series he ran in 2007. The racing bug still has its teeth sunk in deep, as Carlos continues to serve as an instructor at Sebring International Raceway during amateur events.
