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 $2,950, you get a complete Invisalign treatment at Westlake Premier Dentistry in Rollingwood or at Cedar Park Dental (a $7,000 value).
Dr. Burden and Dr. Ince, a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, covertly reorder maws with clear Invisalign aligners. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers over the course of 6–15 months 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 the patient's mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are 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 $3,500 to $8,000. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
While waiting to meet with Dr. Ince at Westlake Premier Dentistry, guests may sip on complimentary cups of coffee and tea. A children's video-game room occupies fidgety fingers, and an Internet café with WiFi entertains laptops that have come in to be straightened. Those visiting the homey Cedar Park Dental relax among pale-yellow walls and treatment rooms with ceiling-mounted televisions.
Cedar Park Premier Dentistry
Inside a bright, window-lined office, Dr. Jay J. Jensen maintains and enhances patients’ smiles using the latest technology. Digital x-rays and intra-oral cameras allow the staff quick and painless views of oral health, all while requiring less radiation and portrait-sitting time than earlier devices. Invisalign invisible aligners take the place of bulky braces for teeth-straightening needs, and whitening systems brighten smiles by up to eight shades. For those not interested in the sounds of hooks scraping against teeth against the white canvas of silence, wall-mounted televisions add comforting chatter during cleanings and operations.
