Like glaciers and tectonic plates, teeth are slowly yet surely on the move as they attempt to turn their host’s mouth into frozen tundra and then rip it apart like a bite-size Pangaea. Defeat devious teeth with today’s Groupon to Pannu Dental Care's four locations in Fremont, San Jose, Cupertino, and Dublin. Choose between the following options:
- For $49, you get an initial Invisalign examination, x-rays, and impressions (a $345 value) plus $1,000 toward the full teeth-straightening treatment.
- For $195, you get one in-office Zoom! whitening treatment (a $650 value).
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $3,500 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 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 need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are removed only when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
Mouth stalagtites-and-mites can also opt for one 1-hour Zoom! whitening treatment. After a quick consultation and mouth-preparation, a scientifically formulated gel is applied to teeth, which transforms into a blemish-busting vigilante under a special Zoom! light. Patients can experience an average tooth-lightening of around eight shades, with little to no residual sensitivity. The treatment takes place in-office, so clients won't have to worry about any at-home regimens. They can expect to see lasting results with proper maintenance, care, and lollipop-sacrifices to the Tooth Fairy.
Pannu Dental Care
Doctors Dalvir Pannu, who co-authored a book on dental implants, adds to the wealth of knowledge that Pannu Dental's team of doctors taps into as they restore pristine smiles. In addition to penning a book, Dr. Pannu has also appeared on NBC Bay Area's Living Well segment to talk about implants. After x-rays map out mouthscapes, doctors discuss the treatment and desired results with patients, enabling them to crabwalk into the procedure worry-free. Dental implants fill in for missing teeth with titanium-anchored implants that leave nearby teeth intact, unlike previous methods of tooth replacement, such as bridges or hot gluing a marshmallow to gum-lines. After it is implanted, the anchor may take up to six months to fully heal. When the healing process is complete, the doctor installs a custom crown and abutment perfectly matched to surrounding teeth. Although the timeframe between implant surgery and crown completion may vary, the final, natural-looking results will help increase confidence during photo ops and rock-candy festivals.
