Invisalign® for Burke, VA
What Is Invisalign®?
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. McMillanDuring 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 DayYou 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 ProgressSince 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 SmileOnce 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.
