Straightening crooked teeth can improve the appearance and health of your smile. Most patients look for an alternative to traditional metal braces when searching for a solution to straighten crooked teeth. Invisalign is a clear, removable aligner system that gradually repositions teeth into the appropriate alignment. Invisalign offers patients a more discreet way to straighten crooked teeth. Most teen and adult patients can benefit from Invisalign treatment.

All About Invisalign
What is Invisalign? Invisalign is a set of clear removable aligners that gently straighten crooked and misaligned teeth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign does not require metal, brackets, or wires.
Does Invisalign treatment hurt? No, Invisalign treatment does not hurt. Some patients report feeling pressure or minimal discomfort after they switch to a new set of aligners.
What issues can Invisalign correct? Invisalign can address:
- Gaps in teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Orthodontic Relapse
How will I know if Invisalign is right for me? One of our experienced dentists will perform a full analysis of your teeth to determine the most appropriate treatment option.
How should I expect from Invisalign treatment? If Invisalign is right for you, your dentist will use CAD/CAM digital software to create a series of clear plastic aligners. On average, aligners are worn for two weeks at a time. Invisalign treatment lasts for about 10-12 months. Patients are expected to wear their aligners for 22 hours a day, removing aligners to complete their daily oral hygiene routine, eat, or drink. Patients will visit our Reston, VA dentist office throughout treatment so that their dentist can track their progress
