If your teeth are not as straight as you would like, but you do not want metal and wire braces detracting from your smile or weighing down your mouth, Invisalign in Fairfax, VA represents a fantastic alternative.
Invisalign is a series of clear, plastic aligners taken from an impression of your smile. These aligners are virtually invisible and designed for your comfort.
It starts with an exam in our dental office. If Dr. Caitlin Hulver, your dentist in Fairfax, VA, determines that Invisalign will work well to improve your smile aesthetics, we take an impression of your mouth, and Invisalign relies on the impression to create your custom aligners.
Approximately every two weeks, you change your aligner to gradually straighten your smile. You can remove your aligner when eating, brushing, and flossing, making this system a practical alternative to metal braces that are not removable.
Following therapy with Invisalign, your dentist provides a custom retainer to help keep your teeth in their new straight positions.
If you would like to learn more about Invisalign, or if you have questions about clear orthodontics, contact a member of our helpful support team today.
We look forward to speaking with you.
