Today’s Groupon salvages your smile in time for holiday parties and portraits with Santa. For $188, you’ll get a Zoom! whitening treatment (a $365 value), plus take-home trays and touch-up gel (a $376 value) at PURE Dental, a $741 total value. Optimal whitening is achieved in four sessions conducted in one visit, but touchy teeth can be accommodated in 2 separate visits.
Relax before treatments in PURE Dental’s modern, minimalistic waiting room, loaded with thoughtful extras (organic juices, a Mac computer bar with free WiFi service, outdoor patio, and giant, sentient teeth roaming the grounds as security guards). The eco-friendly concept also features low-energy lights, sustainable furniture, and organic tooth-care products.
After your teeth give verbal consent, an expert dental technician will apply the Zoom! whitening gel, which is activated by a special light. While the gel breaks up stains, you can watch TV and enjoy the use of built-in QuietComfort3 headphones, snuggies, and customized iTouch iPods loaded with your top tunes. Each gel application takes 15 minutes, so the entire treatment will last an hour. Zoom! whitens teeth an average of eight shades.
Bring a recent copy of dental x-rays, or have PURE dentists Dr. Kim Jackson or Dr. Gwin Huey make your teeth say "cheese" with PURE's low-voltage machines at half off the regular cost of $63. You’ll be able to maintain your fresh-from-the-dentist smile with custom-fitted take-home trays and touch-up gel. Beautiful smiles are contagious and instantly relieve stress. If you’ve resolved to make more friends, become more positive, or seem more successful, the first step could be as simple as a smile.
Get Your Own Dental X-Ray
To take advantage of today's Zoom! whitening, you'll need to either get a dental x-ray done on site, or bring in your own copy of your dental x-rays. Here are some easy ways to get your own dental x-ray:
- Hold a roll of film in your mouth and stare at the sun for 15 minutes
- You can build your own x-ray machine out of cardboard tubes, some construction paper, and a heated cathode filament capable of producing a rapidly accelerating proton beam
- Did you know that most emergency room x-ray machines are wisely open to the public? Learn the ropes yourself until you feel dizzy inside.
- Forget the x-rays! Instead, cut your teeth in half to see inside them. It's more painful than an x-ray, and it takes longer, but you won't have some snooty, trained x-ray technician bossing you around.
- Swallowing a D battery will make your teeth see-through
