Tooth discoloration can either occur over time from drinking coffee each morning or immediately from growling at a squid. Keep smiling with sea creatures with today's Groupon: for $149, you get a Zoom! teeth-whitening treatment at Jurim Dental Group in Woodbury (a $695 value).
Sibling doctors Barbara and Alan Jurim combine collective dental powers to forge a formidable teeth-whitening duo. After a thorough evaluation, technicians prep chompers for the impending white-strike by pumicing teeth and isolating any tissue so they are not exposed to bleach and the harsh light of reality. Teeth are then tinctured to lighter tones with four 15-minute bleaching cycles under the Zoom! light. The effects of whitening treatments can last up to 18 months, and results depend upon dietary and smoking habits. The two-hour whitening procedure takes places in Jurim Dental Group's richly appointed offices, bedecked with hardwood cabinetry and a wall-mounted waterfall. If introductory evaluations indicate that a client is not a candidate for Zoom! whitening, the value of today's Groupon can be used toward alternative dental services such as fillings or cleanings. Both second-generation dentists, both Jurims come from a rich and long dental history, growing up in a dental-laboratory setting and learning at the age of 10 how to replace the fillings on the molars of their teddy bears.
