Like glaciers and tectonic plates, teeth are slowly, yet surely, on the move as they attempt to turn their host’s mouth into a frozen tundra and rip it apart like a bite-size Pangaea. Quash the plans of devious teeth with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get an initial Invisalign examination with x-rays and impressions (a $325 value), plus $1,000 to put toward the full teeth-straightening treatment. This Groupon can be redeemed at one of 19 orthodontic centers and locations across the Houston metropolitan area.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the enchanting spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Each practice features doctors specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process—including some categorized as Elite and Premier providers—which eschews burdensome braces for clear, removable aligners that appear virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain ($325), will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $3,500 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.

Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn thoughout a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and saliva. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw. Call your location of choice to set up an appointment.
