Until the invention of teeth-whitening treatments, smiles were regularly brightened by baking-soda-based toothpaste or holiday lights lined along the gums. Keep your mouth bones shining bright with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a dental package at Wilshire Smiles (a $500 value). This deal is valid at new Santa Monica location or the Manhattan Beach location. The package includes the following:
- An exam
- An in-office Zoom! teeth-whitening treatment<p>
Garnering a Best of LA nomination, Joel Gould, DDS, and the crew of trained fang fixers at Wilshire Smiles turn up smiles’ shine wattage with Zoom! teeth-whitening treatments. Clients can kick back in comfortable dental chairs as Dr. Gould inspects mouth caverns during the exam, which determines if ivory furnishings can be brightened safely. Once given a thumbs-up approval, gums, lips, and tongues head for cover while teeth are polished with a hydrogen-peroxide-based gel. A specialized light then cascades across the dentalscape during three 15-minute sessions, blasting away stain-written history notes to leave pearly whites up to eight shades brighter. Wilshire recommends guests bring iPods or books to stay entertained during the one-hour service, and resist the urge to sip red wine, gnaw tobacco, or poke squids until they ink for a few days following treatments.
