While amateur dentists are a frugal alternative to professionals, their fillings are all made from reductions of abnormal domino tiles and out-of-tune piano keys. Get specialized treatment from a world-class expert with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a dental exam and cleaning ($235), x-rays ($135), and a consultation ($150; a $520 total value), plus your choice of Zoom! whitening treatment (a $650 additional value), $2,000 off Invisalign, or $1,500 off dental implant placement at Smile Design Manhattan on West 57th Street.
Dr. Lee Gause of Smile Design Manhattan applies his dental expertise to grant patients glistening grins and straightened smirks. Tooth tune-ups use the latest technology to clear off cluttered bicuspids and inspect modest molars for imperfections, with cameras that project oral interiors on computer monitors for curious patients to observe. Visitors can also see digital x-rays of their fang collections to plan defensive maneuvers against encroaching cavities or point out fissures in dental embankments.
The Smile Design facilities forgo the sterile, intimidating style of other dentistry practices for a comfortable, modern space to help ease patients' nerves before treatment sessions. Clean white walls, treatment room windows, and natural wood elements stave off claustrophobic sensations, while fresh flowers and aromatherapy usher in the scents of nature's nicer elements. Patrons also receive an aesthetic consultation to determine further methods to mine sterling smiles from face caverns. Groupon customers can select from three supplementary treatments to strengthen food chewers:
- Zoom! whitening for no extra charge (a $650 value) brightens cloudy countenances by several shades with a gentle coating of hydrogen peroxide gel and light activation.
- Customers can receive $2,000 off of a full Invisalign treatment (an average cost of $6,500) to straighten asymmetric mouth shutters. These transparent fixtures free patients to orient their teeth at home or in the office.
- Clients can receive $1,500 off of a dental implant ($4,500 on average) to replace a runaway tusk with a sculpted addition that looks and feels like a real tooth. The $1,500 credit covers the cost of placement, meaning customers only need to pay for the restoration cost (approximately $3,000).
- Dr. Gause's commitment to excellence in dentistry is apparent in every facet of his business, from the comfortable, stress-free office environment to the quality of aesthetic dentistry provided to patients. – Bari Trontz, Social Life

Alex Gause DDS spent a considerable portion of his childhood contemplating teeth. Born into a family of dentists, Dr. Gause DDS recalls spending time at his parents' practice, witnessing the transformative effects of dental care firsthand. These experiences inspired him to attend the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry, where he further affirmed his belief in the role that restorative care and orthodontics play in creating healthy, natural-looking smiles.
Dr. Gause DDS and his staff rely on a combination of well-honed medical intuition and superior equipment. They scan for problem areas with digital x-ray systems or a highly advanced cone-beam CT-imaging device, and take special care to leave little to no visible traces of their work when treatment is necessary. For example, Dr. Gause DDS seamlessly fills in damaged teeth with composite resins, and uses specialized ceramists to forge lifelike crowns that blend in as naturally as a chameleon atop a stack of National Geographic magazines.
