Even the healthiest-looking smile can be marred by crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth. If you wish you had straighter teeth, but the prospect of wearing metal braces puts you off, you should know you have other options.
Invisalign clear braces use clear aligners to straighten teeth. Instead of facing years in metal braces, your Invisalign dentist in Tysons, VA can help you complete treatment in as little as 12 short months.
3 Steps to a Straighter Smile
Invisalign treatment is easy and comfortable, and we can get you started in three simple steps:
- Schedule an appointment – The first stage involves planning your treatment. Your dentist performs a comprehensive evaluation that includes photos, digital x-rays, and dental impressions. This information is used to develop a step-by-step treatment plan that moves your teeth, centimeter by centimeter until you achieve the desired results.
- Wear your aligners – Your treatment involves using several sets of clear, customized plastic aligners that you wear for at least 22 hours a day. The comfortable aligners are removable so you can brush and floss easily. Every two weeks, you switch out the current set for the next set of aligners. When you've worn all your aligners, your treatment is finished.
- Wear your retainer – Wearing your last set of aligners and finishing treatment is rewarding; you put in the effort, and now you have a straight, harmonious smile to show for it. But that’s only the first phase of treatment. You will need to wear your retainer as instructed to maintain the beautiful results!
You owe it to yourself to learn how easy it can be to straighten your smile with clear aligners. If you are looking for an Invisalign dentist in Tysons, VA, look no further than Dr. Ardalan Sanati and Dr. Shohreh Shahram at Tysons Dentistry.
