Invisalign: What to Expect
Invisalign provides a new and increasingly popular option for achieving a straight smile without traditional metal braces. Using Invisalign, our doctors can show patients their expected results prior to starting treatment. Patients see a virtual image of their teeth before, during and after the invisalign process. From the first day of treatment, patients can see what their smile will look like when they’re done. Doctors take series of measurements and impressions which are then used to make a series of clear custom-made aligners. Teeth are gradually straightened by wearing each set of aligners for about two weeks. The clear plastic trays are custom-made to move teeth in sequence, little by little, for each patient until the final results are achieved. A straight well aligned smile does more than add symmetry in beauty. It also results in healthy gums and teeth in a winning smile of our patients.

The adult-friendly Invisalign approach straightens teeth with customized aligners created specifically for the patient by our dentists at Washington Center for Dentistry. The clear aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable, virtually invisible plastic that are worn over the teeth. Wearing the aligners, over time, gradually—and gently—shifts the teeth into place. The orthodontic changes are the result of exact movements planned just for the patient. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. Patients just pop in a new set of aligners every 2 – 3 weeks, until treatment is complete. A brand new, straighter smile emerges—with little interference in a patient’s daily life. Invisalign treats the majority of common alignment problems for adults and teens, whether a smile needs minor improvements or more dramatic change with cosmetic dentistry. From crowding or excess spacing to complex overbites, under bites and cross bites, an Invisalign cosmetic dentistry and orthodontic treatment plan can improve any smile.
