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, then rip it apart like a bite-size Pangaea. Defeat your devious teeth with today’s Groupon for services from Dr. Nicole Dahlkemper of Thurman and Dahlkemper, DMD in Mt. Pleasant. Choose between two options:
- For $75, you get an initial Invisalign examination (up to a $487 value), plus $1,000 off total Invisalign treatment.
- For $150, you get a 60-minute in-house teeth-whitening treatment (a $350 value).
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Dr. Dahlkemper is specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process, which eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam ($75), plus x-rays and photos ($162) and impressions ($250) of your mouth terrain, 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 $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn over a period of 6 to 15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
Patients opting for the teeth-whitening services can expect a 60-minute session with the doctor using the Pola Office bleaching system ($350). Harnessing the desensitizing capabilities of potassium nitrate and the whitening prowess of hydrogen peroxide, the light-optional Pola Office procedure reduces treatment time and can efficiently improve the pallor of pearly whites.
