Invisalign® straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It’s virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth.
The Invisalign® System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign® aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your dentist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan.
Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign® is right for you. After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign® uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners — as few as 12 or as many as 48. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually — week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you’ll be smiling like you never have before!
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign offers numerous benefits for orthodontic treatment, including discreetness with clear aligners that are nearly invisible. The aligners are removable, allowing for easy maintenance of oral hygiene and the ability to eat without restrictions. Invisalign generally causes less discomfort than traditional braces, as it involves no metal wires or brackets. The treatment also offers shorter and more predictable durations for achieving desired results, making it an attractive option for those seeking a convenient and aesthetically pleasing orthodontic solution.

To ensure the best possible results, only a dentist who has been trained and certified by Align Technology can diagnose and treat using Invisalign®. Invisalign® is not intended for children and is not appropriate for every adult. Only a certified dental office, such as Loudoun Smile Center, can determine if this treatment is an effective option for you.
