Have you been thinking about straightening your teeth but didn’t know where to start? For many of our patients, orthodontic care has always seemed out of reach, because they feared that they were “too old” to straighten their teeth or that orthodontics was reserved for children and teenagers. Many of our adult patients would rather not have braces, as they don’t like the look of the metal wires and brackets. Some of our younger patients are concerned that those metal brackets will draw unwanted attention to their teeth.
Luckily, Dr. Amirreza Rafaat and Dr. Sanin Emelee have a practical solution that can alleviate all of those concerns: Invisalign®. This treatment can straighten your teeth, improving the aesthetics of your smile and the function of your bite. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to straighten and align the placement of your teeth. This means that there are no wires and brackets adhered to the front of your teeth. This treatment is discreet and comfortable. Additionally, you can remove the aligners while eating, so you can avoid some of the common concerns addressed with orthodontic care.
When you visit our office for your initial Invisalign consultation, our team will begin by taking a full scan of your teeth and mouth, which we will use to design your new aligners. This scan will be taken using our iTero® digital scanner, which creates a full, mess-free, three dimensional model of your smile without the discomfort of traditional dental impressions. This way, we can ensure you aligners look and fit great on your smile.
Our dentists and team use Invisalign in Herndon, Virginia. If you are interested in trying this life-changing treatment, we invite you to call Herndon Smile Design at 703-464-0000.
