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 today’s Groupon: for $49, you get an initial Invisalign examination, a basic cleaning, x-rays, and impressions (a $470 value), plus $1,100 toward the full teeth-straightening treatment. This Groupon is valid at the following six National Association of Dental Professionals–sponsored offices: Dr. Steven Donia in Encino, Dr. Jay Grossman & Associates in Brentwood, Avalon Dental Care in El Segundo, The Oaks Center for Cosmetic Dentistry in North Hollywood, The Perfect Smile in Alhambra, and Dr. Robert Mondavi in Torrance.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with 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 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,100 toward that final cost. 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.
This Groupon is valid for Los Angeles–area dentists that boast years of experience in both general and cosmetic dentistry. Bask in sleek, modern waiting areas rife with amenities such as flat-screen TVs, tranquil waterfalls, vibrant artwork, and miniature hammocks fashioned from floss. This Groupon also includes a basic teeth cleaning, which will help rid gum guards of troublesome plaque and stowaway broccoli pieces.
