In the Elizabethan days, having blackened teeth was attractive because it was an indicator of being a part of the sugar-crazed nobility. Embrace the sparkling shift in mouth-based desirability with today's Groupon: for $195, you get a Zoom! teeth-whitening treatment at Sutter Dental (a $599 value), located in Union Square's historic 450 Sutter Building, which has housed dental professionals since 1930.
Each Zoom! whitening treatment is performed by Dr. Gary Arabatyan, whose philosophy of dental care centers around preventative care, minimally invasive treatment options, and fully discussing each procedure with each client. He will happily answer any enameled question, giving informed and accurate answers like the Ken Jennings of dentistry. With a fully informed brain and fully examined mouth, the Zoom! treatment begins. The hydrogen-peroxide gel lovingly caresses each tooth, and Zoom!'s special blue-white halogen light excites the chemicals into action. Zoom!'s lamps decrease patient boredom and discomfort as they blaze away stains and enamel darkening, leading to a brighter, flashier smile.
While waiting, filling out paperwork, or creepily hanging out for hours after treatment, relax in the comforting waiting room and watch the fish gambol and frolic in the office's tropical aquarium. Take a moment to reflect upon the toothlessness of the sea turtle depicted in one of the paintings, and feel satisfied as you head out into the world as a proud, enamel-bearing mammal.
- Dr. Arabatyan is, by far, one of the most talented dentists I have ever had. – Andrew Browne, DoctorBase
- Most importantly, Dr. Arabatyan's work is TOP NOTCH and second to none. The man is a perfectionist down to the smallest detail and takes very pride [sic] in his work. – Camilo R., Yelp, 10/30/2009
