Invisalign: A Straighter Smile in 3 Steps

July 21, 2017

Invisalign in Fairfax, VA

First impressions are important in your social life and business settings. Everything matters – your hair, skin, clothes, and especially your smile. It’s unfortunate that people judge you by appearance, but it’s just a fact of life.

A beautiful, healthy smile attracts others to you because they perceive you to be confident and intelligent. If you have an esthetic flaw like crooked teeth, you might want to consider contacting an Invisalign dentist in Fairfax to see if this short-term orthodontic treatment is right for you.

Invisalign treatment is easy and comfortable, and we can get you started in three simple steps:

  1. Arrange a Consultation: During the planning stage, Dr. Cerina Fairfax will perform a thorough examination that includes digital x-rays, photos, and impressions of your teeth. Using this information, she will develop a treatment plan that allows us to predict the movement of your teeth throughout the process.
  2. Wear Your Aligners: You will receive a customized series of clear plastic aligners with instructions to wear each set at least 22 hours a day for two weeks. Invisalign clear braces are removable, making eating and oral hygiene easy. At the end of the two-week period, you will move to the next set of aligners. Every time you change aligners, you will gradually see the difference in your smile.
  3. Use Your Retainer: It’s exciting when treatment is finished, and you are rewarded with a beautiful smile. But treatment doesn’t end there! You must wear the retainer Dr. Fairfax provides because it maintains the results that you worked so hard to achieve!

If you live in Fairfax and are looking for an Invisalign dentist, please give us a call. We will be happy to arrange a commitment-free consultation to see if Invisalign clear braces are the right choice for you.
