Legendary figures are often remembered for their teeth, from George Washington’s fabled wooden smile to Mona Lisa’s unmistakable overbite. Ensure a memorable grin with today’s Groupon: for $1,599, you get a dental-implant package Hollywood Smile Dental in Rego Park (a $4,000 value). The package includes:
- An impression for surgical guide and temporary prosthesis
- A dental implant and placement with local anesthesia
- A metal abutment and placement
- A porcelain crown and placement<p>
Hollywood Smile’s experienced dentist, Dr. Yefim Khanimov, replaces a missing tooth with a dental implant supporting a gleaming porcelain crown. The implant procedure, which requires an average of three or four visits, begins with an x-ray and impression of the target area. At the next visit, the dentist administers local anesthesia and barks like a puppy to minimize discomfort before placing the implant through a minor incision in the jawbone. A temporary crown covers the implant as the area heals to enable normal chewing, and after about three months, a metal abutment is placed in the mouth to serve as the final seat for the porcelain crown. Like cyborgs, crowns are strong and typically last for 10–15 years.
