Without teeth, tongues would slither out of mouths and go on to lead unfulfilling lives catching raindrops and licking strangers' faces. Keep a stir-crazy taste muscle contained in a gleaming cage with today's Groupon: for $120, you get a comprehensive dental exam, a custom take-home whitening kit, and follow-up supervision from Russell H. Masunaga, DDS, whose office is located on North King Street (a $531 total value, tax included).
Dr. Masunaga's at-home whitening system uses advanced dental-brightening technology to rocket molars and bicuspids to the next level of sheet-rivaling whiteness. This full tooth transformation is spread over three visits, starting with a thorough dental exam, during which Dr. Masunaga will determine the health of teeth and mouth-dwelling gum gremlins. Then, teeth sit patiently through a fitting to ensure the custom Colgate Visible White trays surround each tooth in a bear hug of eye-blinding brightness. During the second visit, patients receive their own set of custom trays along with a supply of professional-strength whitening gel. Dr. Masunaga seeks to address and treat any potential sensitivity problems to make the procedure as comfortable as possible for every patient and their emotionally fragile chompers.
Within three days of use, mouth owners may begin to see their toothy charges shift to a brighter shade, with full results usually appearing in a week. At the third visit to Dr. Masunaga's office, patients get a color check to compare teeth's previous color to their new marshmallow-fluff-esque whiteness, which is usually three to five shades of improvement.

Dr. Russell H. Masunaga keeps patients’ mouths in optimal health while ensuring a comfortable, virtually pain-free experience through the use of laser technology. With lasers, Dr. Masunaga can often avoid the use of anesthetics when removing tooth decay in a quicker, more precise manner than standard drilling procedures. He also fills cavities with tooth-colored composites for a unified, natural-looking smile. With office hours available Monday–Saturday, Dr. Masunaga makes scheduling a visit more accessible, as well.
