What You'll Get
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 $3,499, you get a complete Invisalign orthodontic treatment at Walnut Creek Dental (up to a $7,900 value).
Dr. Massood Darvish, a preffered Invisalign provider who has taught at UCSF and Berkeley, [straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The [Invisalign process](http://gr.pn/oBK3nB) 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. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will 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.
The cost of an Invisalign treatment depends on the amount of orthodontic artistry and tooth-fairy bribes required to transfigure a particular oral landscape, and can run from $3,500-$8,000. This Groupon, which includes the cost of post-treatment bleaching and any additional refinements, gives the largest discount to customers requiring extensive treatment.
