Although dentists would like to spend most of their time treating humans, they find themselves tending to an increasing number of wooden clowns, whose teeth keep getting knocked out by baseballs at carnivals. Maintain the human balance with today's Groupon to North Bethesda Dental Design in Rockville. Choose between the following options:
- For $130, you get an exam, X-rays, cleaning, and take-home whitening kit (a $524 total value).
- For $209, you get a one-hour in-office Zoom! teeth whitening and exam (a $720 value).
A student of aerospace engineering before earning his extensive dental credentials, Dr. Shin Kim commands a crew of experienced clinicians, making smiles shine as brightly as the moon. For the cleaning option, four X-rays (a $27 value each) first capture the mouth's inner beauty, revealing any issues to be investigated during the comprehensive dental exam, which screens for the overall health of teeth, gums, and any fillings (a $65 value). A hygienist then performs a professional cleaning (a $101 value), scraping away plaque and calculus built up from years of eating math homework. Patients leave the cleaning toting a Lumibrite take-home whitening kit, which uses custom whitening gel and trays to brighten teeth by up to nine shades in two weeks (a $250 value).
Though performed in the North Bethesda office rather than in a den-room papasan chair, the Zoom! procedure provides the same professional-grade whitening in only one hour. As some patients might not be eligible for in-office whitening, an initial dental exam screens teeth for health and sensitivity. Throughout three consecutive 15-minute bleaching sessions, a clinician applies hydrogen peroxide gel to the teeth and exposes it to a special light, which cues hydrogen and peroxide to perform their two-man comedy routine, forcing a brighter smile from even the most cynical patient.
