Incisors are notorious packrats refusing to throw out nostalgic coffee and cola stains or old love letters from bittersweet molar romances. Give your grin a fresh start with today's Groupon: for $185, you get a Zoom! Whitening treatment. Choose one of the following locations:
- Great Oaks Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Round Rock
- Lakeway Center for Cosmetic & Family Dentistry in Lakeway
- Urban Dentistry & Laser Spa in South Central Austin
Zoom! Whitening strips teeth of darkening stains, restoring their childlike, ivory innocence through a safe, lightning-fast procedure. To start, a mischievous schoolboy tricks his dentist pals into whitewashing your teeth with a coat of hydrogen peroxide gel. Then, a bright whitening lamp floods your smile, sending stains scurrying in vain for a place to hide. This 15- to 20-minute process is repeated a total of three times, after which grins gleam on average six to eight shades brighter within a matter of days. The effective, long-lasting treatments are safe, quick, and comfortable, and unlike a steel-wool toothbrush, have no damaging effect on enamel.
Each of the three locations listed offers a unique enamel enhancing experience. The lush offices of Dr. Houtan Alayan, DDS, at Great Oaks Family & Cosmetic Dentistry offer amenities such as heated massage pads and MP3 players. Dr. Amy Urban's arty practice at Urban Dentistry & Laser Spa resides inside a converted World War I airplane hanger. At Lakeway Center for Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, overhead television screens accompany treatments at the hands of University of Texas alumnus, Dr. Robert D'Alfonso, DDS.

Urban Laser Spa
Like the juxtaposition of its building's militaristic past as a World War I airplane hangar with the cheery lime-colored walls and babbling fountains of its current renovated state, Urban Laser Spa pairs two seemingly disparate elements. Its staff members not only provide preventative dental care, but they also focus on clients' appearances with medical, spa-quality skin services. Masterminded by partners Dr. Amy Urban and Dr. Raymond Paxton, the spa's common area helps harmonize its two branches of service with a miniature zen garden, local art, and flickering candles. In the dentistry wing, Dr. Urban performs thorough preventative examinations, cleanings, and whitening services in treatment areas flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows and the soothing white noise of tooth-brushing soundtracks. Dr. Paxton's certified aestheticians perform detailed skin analyses before moving onto their treatments, which can include noninvasive laser therapy, microdermabrasion, and line-smoothing injections.
