Invisalign®
Straighten Your Teeth Without Braces

Do you avoid smiling because you’re embarrassed of your crooked or misaligned teeth? 

With an Invisalign® you can have the smile you’ve always wanted without the braces you’ve always avoided.

Invisalign® is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces. Invisalign® uses clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. With Invisalign® you can brush and floss normally, which can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

Invisalign® has been proven effective in both clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide. Over a quarter million people are already smiling more thanks to Invisalign®. It’s time for you to get your confidence back by investing in your smile.

Benefits of Invisalign®

Invisible

Removable

Comfortable

Even up close it’s really hard for people to tell you’re wearing Invisalign®. You can smile during treatment as well as after and no one will ever know you’re straightening your teeth.

You can eat and drink what you want; plus brushing and flossing are no problem

Invisalign® uses a series of nearly undetectable aligners instead of brackets and wires. No metal means there’s nothing to cause uncomfortable abrasions (and you spend less time at the dentist getting adjustments).

Invisalign® FAQS:

You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.

As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position your dentist has prescribed.

About once every 6 weeks you’ll visit your dentist to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is 18-30, but both will vary based on the individual.

The aligners are made through a combination of your dentist’s expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology. No metal wires or brackets.

Because there are no metal wires and brackets, Invisalign® is more comfortable than traditional braces. And because they are removable, eating, brushing and flossing are no problem.

If you’re in the Richmond area, our office will give you an initial free examination to determine if Invisalign® treatment is right for you. If it appears that Invisalign® is an option, we will take photographs, x-rays, and an impression of your teeth to further verify that Invisalign® is the best option for you.

Once we verify that Invisalign® is the best option for you, we create an individual treatment plan to determine exactly how your teeth are straightened. At this time, we will be able to let you know if you qualify for orthodontic insurance benefits and the estimated cost and length of treatment.

When the treatment plan is complete, your records are sent to Invisalign® along with the dentist’s instructions. Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign® will translate our instructions into a series of precisely customized aligners.

You will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks. Each set of aligners will gradually move your teeth closer and closer to the desired result. You will need to wear these aligners all the time except when you are eating, drinking, or cleaning your teeth.

A beautiful and confident smile can brighten your everyday life, make you look and feel good, and it’s contagious! What are you waiting for?
