What Is Invisalign®?

The preferred orthodontic choice for more than 5 million people.

Gone are the days of traditional metal braces. With Invisalign®, you can comfortably straighten your teeth without anyone noticing. How?

Invisalign® consists of a series of clear aligners that resemble teeth whitening trays. These aligners gradually move your teeth into their proper, straight positions.

The best part: The aligners are removable, allowing you to eat, drink, brush, and floss as you normally would.

Straightening your teeth has never been easier or more stress-free. Here is an overview of what you can expect with Invisalign® in Burke, VA:

  • Consultation with Dr. McMillan
    During your consultation with Dr. Alex McMillan, you will discuss your smile goals and determine if Invisalign® is the right option for you. If so, Dr. McMillan will take a quick digital scan of your teeth. This scan will generate a treatment plan, create your aligners, and show you a preview of your expected end result.
  • Wear Your Aligners Every Day
    You will need to wear your clear aligners for at least 20 hours a day. You should only take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss. You will change to a new set of aligners roughly every two weeks.
  • Check Progress
    Since your aligners don’t need frequent adjustments like braces, you will only need to visit Dr. McMillan for check-ups every six weeks or so.
  • Show Off Your Smile
    Once your treatment is complete, you will have a beautiful, straight smile to show off. For a final touch, you can brighten your smile with professional teeth whitening.

Invisalign® is the perfect option for adults and teenagers who want minimal impact on their lives, but a significant impact on their smile and confidence.

Why Our Patients Love Invisalign®

Technology
Aligners are custom-made with the help of an iTero scanner, which creates accurate 3D images of your teeth in a matter of seconds (goodbye, goopy impressions!). With this technology, your aligners will fit perfectly, making your journey to straight teeth quick and painless.
Invisible
One of the main reasons people choose Invisalign® is because it is virtually invisible. The aligners are clear and seamlessly blend in with your smile. You won’t have to worry about anyone noticing your orthodontic treatment.
Effective Treatment
Both teenagers and adults can use Invisalign® to treat a variety of cases, including overbites, underbites, crossbites, open bites, crowded teeth, and teeth with gaps.
Easy to Clean
If you’ve had braces before, then you know the annoyance of trying to floss between brackets and wires. With Invisalign®, you can continue to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would. Cleaning your aligners can be as simple as taking them out and giving them a scrub.
No Diet Changes
Because Invisalign® aligners are removable, you can continue eating and drinking your favorite things without restriction. Simply take them out before you eat, brush your teeth, rinse your aligners, and then pop them back in.
Quick Treatment
The average Invisalign® treatment time is 12 to 18 months, and you can expect to see results in a matter of weeks. For reference, the average treatment time for metal braces is 24 months.

This is the first time a dentist sat down at my level and explained in detail what my options were. He was very patient and did not rush. My overall assessment is A+!
