A brighter smile bestows confidence, allowing one to breezily ask the boss for a raise, the lunch lady for an extra serving, and the Oracle of Delphi follow-up questions. Garner self-assurance with today's Groupon: for $129, you get a Zoom! teeth-whitening treatment at Oakland City Dental (a $450 value).
Oakland City Dental's leading lady, Dr. Dahab Gaime, gives dingy smiles star appeal using the Zoom! teeth-whitening system. As patients sit back in comfy dental chairs, a tech places a protective cover over gums and lips before daubing teeth with a hydrogen-peroxide-infused gel. A specialized low-level light then activates the gel to break up stains caused by frequent swishing of coffee, tea, or magic markers. After one 45-minute application, teeth emerge from treatments noticeably brighter.
