Call our dentist, Dr. Layth, and our talented team at 703-525-0157 today to schedule an appointment and find out if Invisalign is right for you!
During your initial consultation, we’ll go over the benefits of getting your teeth into the correct alignment and occlusion by utilizing Invisalign technology. We’ll discuss your smile goals, go over your expectations, and determine a strategy plan to get you the smile of your dreams. If Invisalign is a good fit for you and your smile, we will proceed to take all the necessary scans and photos to establish a digitized smile simulation. This state-of-the-art technology allows to show you exactly what the end result will be.
During this visit, we will go over the treatment plan we have put together specifically for you. This visit usually takes place a week after the consultation visit. After you’re informed about the process and have all your questions and concerns addressed, our front desk will help you determine what financial plan is right for you.
Invisalign Start Day:
Lasting approximately 90 minutes, this is the longest appointment you will have. After placing all the necessary attachments on your teeth, you’ll be well on your way to a straighter smile! After this visit, you come into our office every 4-6 weeks to get your new set of aligners, which is a lot less frequent than if you were going the traditional metal route.
Invisalign Clear Aligners FAQs
What do the aligner look like?
Because your aligners are made of clear plastic, they are nearly invisible to everyone—even you! This allows you to continue smiling with confidence throughout your treatment. Your aligners are also removable, making it easy for you to eat, brush, and floss like normal.
How much does Invisalign cost?
Our Invisalign pricing starts at $2600 and could vary depending on your specific smile. But don’t let money concerns get in between you and perfect teeth. At our office, we strive to make getting the dental care you deserve affordable. That’s why we offer both in-house and third-party financing plans. Visit our financial page to learn more.
How does Invisalign work?
As you change out your clear aligners, they will slightly change shape. What this will do is gently shift your teeth into alignment without all the hassle of traditional braces.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
There are many benefits to Invisalign as opposed to traditional braces. Not only are they practically undetectable, but the plastic is much less abrasive than wires and brackets. There are also oral health benefits. You can remove your aligners to brush and floss like normal, which allows for a cleaner mouth. Plus, you won’t need any special tools like you need to scrub under traditional braces. And our favorite part is that there aren’t any diet restrictions! You can still enjoy all the foods you love while working toward the smile you love.
What’s the average Invisalign treatment time?
While traditional braces can take anywhere from 16-30 months, Invisalign takes about 12-18 months on average. Of course, this can vary in either direction depending on your smile.
