Like rebellious teen vampires, crooked teeth refuse to stay in line and leave odd-shaped bite marks on everything they touch. Straighten out chompers with today’s Groupon: for $1,799, you get a ClearCorrect invisible-braces package at Vivid Smile Dental Center, with three locations in College Park, Jonesboro, and Waynesboro (a $4,000 value). The package includes:
- Initial consultation
- X-rays, photos, and impressions
- Up to 12 sets of ClearCorrect aligners
- Routine progress appointments every three to six weeks over the course of one year<p>
The continually educated dentists at Vivid Smile straighten teeth with transparent ClearCorrect invisible braces. In an initial consultation, dentists scrutinize teeth and take x-rays, impressions, and photos to be sent to dental casting agents. Using the images and impressions, ClearCorrect’s technicians craft up to 12 clear, customized, removable aligner trays, which progressively shift teeth toward their proper positions. Patients remove aligners only during meals, brushing, flossing, and intensive bouts of whistling. For the next year, dentists will inspect progress every three–six weeks to make sure their treatments are on track until every canine and bicuspid stands tall.

Dr. Mike Franklin didn’t always see himself as a dentist; in fact, he worked for seven years in corporate America before deciding that helping others was his true calling. He decided to study dentistry, a choice that would lead him to open Vivid Smile Dental Center in 2011. Dr. Franklin and associates perform a full slate of preventive, surgical, and cosmetic procedures, including routine cleanings and checkups, x-rays, root canals, dental implants, crowns, and teeth whitening.
