Although teeth whitening remains a popular service, the teeth tie-dyeing trend of 1973 never really caught on. Get a groovier smile with this Groupon.
$119 for Teeth-Whitening Package ($794 Total Value)
- Dental exam (a $67 value)
- Full-mouth x-rays (a $127 value)
- In-office Zoom teeth-whitening treatment (a $600 value)
The whitening process kicks off as a cheek retractor fits snugly into mouths, keeping lips and tongues from breaking out to mouth insults at easily ruffled dental mirrors. Staffers use an application pen to paint a hydrogen-peroxide whitening gel directly onto teeth before the Zoom device engulfs incisors in a cold blue light. Treatments last just over an hour and can brighten smiles up to 10 shades.
Johnston C. Chu, DDS
It's difficult to say what excites Johnston C. Chu, DDS more: interacting with his patients or maintaining and restoring their teeth. He decided to go into dentistry because it allows him to help others, and he's always had a profound interest in teeth and oral health.
Dr. Chu's sincere concern for his patients' comfort and well-being is evident in both types of services he offers and in his office's warm, welcoming ambiance. He has taken numerous continuing-education courses to stay ahead of the latest patient-centered techniques—including sedation dentistry, drill-less procedures, and aesthetic laser surgery—and specializes in safely removing old mercury fillings.
The reception area looks more like a family room than a dentist's office, although his one-patient-at-a-time philosophy means that guests rarely wait there for very long. Beige gingham armchairs and floral-themed artwork invite adults to relax with a cup of coffee or tea, and kids can play with educational games, puzzles, or daydream about blinding the school bully with a flash of their newly polished pearly whites.
