At Smile Makers Dental Center, we place a high priority on the well-being of our patients, along with the health of their smiles. In recognition of the fact that straighter smiles are easier to maintain and often less prone to decay and gum disease, we want to make an impact on the people of Virginia by encouraging them to complete orthodontic treatment. By using Invisalign, this can be accomplished without metal brackets or wires!

What is Invisalign®?
With Invisalign clear aligners, your clear aligners will be specially made for you. They are composed of strong, smooth, medical-grade plastics, which are capable of shifting teeth into the proper position by applying consistent pressure. In the coming weeks and months, your smile will become better and better as you progress through a series of between 20 and 30 clear aligners, gradually moving your teeth into the desired position.
The aligners are carefully crafted in order to move your teeth with gentle pressure over a period of, usually, between six and twelve months. During the course of your treatment, you will wear each of the sets for approximately two weeks before moving on to the next one. This allows for easy monitoring of your progress.
The Invisalign aligners can be used to treat a variety of dental concerns, such as the following:
- Space between teeth
- Crowded teeth
Our office can provide you with a better idea of your treatment plan and duration when you visit us for your smile evaluation.
Benefits of Invisalign®
There are several advantages to using Invisalign clear aligners, but one of the major advantages is that they are practically invisible.
- Thanks to their translucent plastic material, many people won’t even be able to tell that you’re wearing them!
- As opposed to other orthodontic treatments, like traditional braces that can be bulky and uncomfortable, Invisalign offers a discreet and comfortable alternative.
- The removable nature of these clear plastic trays also means that you are able to enjoy consuming the foods that you love without causing any restrictions to your diet.
- Another advantage to removing them is that you can keep up with your oral hygiene as usual, especially since you don’t have to worry about wires or brackets getting in your way while you brush or floss.
