$2,799 for a Complete Invisalign Treatment and In-Office Whitening ($6,230 Value)
Invisalign straightens teeth with a series of clear, removable, custom aligners. The process begins at the dentist’s office, where, during an initial exam, the doctor snaps x-rays and takes impressions of the upper and lower teeth. In the Invisalign lab, technicians craft a set of up to 48 transparent aligners made to the patient’s exact specifications. Patients wear the removable aligners for 6–18 months, changing the aligners every two weeks and only removing them while eating, brushing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw. Throughout the treatment, patients return to the dentist’s office for routine checkups to ensure teeth continue to shift into their proper places. Read the Invisalign FAQs here.
Scottsdale Dental Arts
Dental anxieties evaporate at Scottsdale Dental Arts, thanks not only to the spa-like treatment rooms, but also to Dr. Jason McCargar and his friendly staff. Clients can kick back with a beverage and a soft blanket atop a memory-foam dental chair, as the staff hands out warm, lemon-scented towels. From there, soothing music that streams from the office iPod—and perhaps a few jokes chucked by Dr. McCargar himself—keep them at ease during appointments, be it a biannual cleaning or fitting for veneers. The team can also help extra-anxious patients by bestowing them with light sedatives and paper bibs embroidered with peaceful mantras.
