What is Invisalign®?
Each Invisalign® aligner is created to blend in with your smile. During the treatment, patients receive a series of clear, comfortable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. With each appliance, our dentists will make sure that it fits your teeth at each stage of treatment. We will take precise images, X-rays and dental impressions to create an accurate 3D model of your smile, which will be used in the design of the trays.
Why Would I Want Invisalign®?
Many adults and teenagers become self-conscious about how their smile looks when wearing metal braces. However, Invisalign® trays are less obtrusive. The aligners are clear and removable, so patients can eat, drink and clean their teeth like usual. Also, because each treatment can be planned virtually, you can see exactly how your smile will turn out.
How Does Invisalign® work?
The Invisalign® system works through a series of plastic aligners trays. These trays are custom-fitted to each patient. As they are replaced, usually every two weeks, the teeth gradually shift to fit each new aligner. During treatment, our dentists will make sure the appliances fit correctly and are moving the teeth correctly. However, if you have any concerns about the Invisalign® process, or would like to meet for an Invisalign® consultation in Gainesville, Virginia, reach out to us at 703-753-3346.
