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 this Groupon: for $2,599, you get a complete Invisalign orthodontic treatment with in-office whitening at Smile Time Dentistry in Folsom and Rocklin (up to a $7,300 value).
The orthodontic dentists at Smile Time Dentistry straighten crooked chompers with Invisalign—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 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. While working through the series of aligners, patients return to the Smile Time offices for routine check-ups to ensure teeth continue to reseat themselves in proper fashion. Additionally, patients receive a post-straightening in-office whitening to further bolster their smile’s allure. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will 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 only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
