Like trophies, teeth require routine polishing to be displayed or they'll be forced to hide behind the taxidermied buffalo head in the attic. Flaunt glorious gum-toppers with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a cleaning, an exam, a fluoride treatment, and full-mouth digital x-rays at Lux Dental (a $486.80 value), redeemable at both of its locations in Quincy and Cambridge.
Clients receive a thorough teeth cleaning that massages away plaque and tarter, followed by an enamel-strengthening fluoride treatment to leave smiles as polished as the top of Patrick Stewart's head.
During a comprehensive exam, a pointed tooth-scaler sizes up chompers and searches mouths for crater-like cavities or surface abnormalities. Digital x-rays provide a more detailed image of the client's teeth than normal x-ray film and help dentists further analyze potentially harmful scenarios, such as the progression of tooth decay or the presence of thought-infiltrating popcorn kernels.
