More Convenient Than Conventional Orthodontics
Virtually InvisibleThe clear aligners provided by Invisalign are made from a BPA-free plastic. The clear dental material makes the trays almost invisible, so those around you may not even notice you are wearing them.
More ComfortableOur dentist will carefully design your dental aligners so they fit comfortably over your teeth. In addition, the smooth material means less irritation on your lips and gums during the orthodontic process.
No RestrictionsInvisalign clear aligners are removable, allowing you to eat all your favorite foods. It's also easier to keep your teeth clean during Invisalign treatment since you can brush and floss normally.

Good Oral Health
Patients should be free of decay, gum disease, and other oral health concerns before beginning Invisalign treatment. These conditions may worsen with aligner treatment or interfere with the Invisalign process. Our team can offer care like root canal therapy, fillings for cavities, and other restorative and general treatments to correct these concerns before you start the Invisalign process.
Mild to Moderate Misalignment
Invisalign treatment is ideal for patients with mild to moderate rather than severe misalignment issues. For instance, patients with serious overcrowding and crooked teeth may need treatment that applies more force than Invisalign can provide. During a consultation, our dentists can determine if Invisalign or traditional braces are the right treatment for your case.
Dedicated to Change
Invisalign patients should wear their aligners for over 20-22 hours a day to get the most out of their treatment with the quickest timeline. If you're dedicated to changing your teeth and can accept the responsibilities of a removable orthodontic treatment, Invisalign may be a suitable method for you. If not, braces may be able to treat your misalignment with more efficiency.
With a customized treatment plan, our dental team can help you achieve a straighter, healthier smile. During your consultation at our Richmond office, we can determine if you're a candidate for Invisalign. Whether Invisalign or traditional orthodontics are better suited for you, our team will be with you every step of the way. Call to get started with a consultation:
The Treatment Process
The Invisalign system works in the same basic way as traditional braces, but instead of using wires that are tightened to move brackets, Invisalign uses a series of custom-made plastic aligners to slowly shift your teeth. The aligners snugly wrap around your dental arch and are made of completely clear plastic, meaning your smile will continue to look natural as you undergo treatment.
We are a Gold Invisalign Provider, meaning we complete at least 25 cases a year.

How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take?
For adults, it generally takes about a year to complete an Invisalign adjustment, though more difficult cases may take longer.
Teenagers typically require treatment which is comparable to the length of time required for traditional braces.
What If I Have Had Braces or Other Dental Treatments?
One of the great things about Invisalign is that it can be used in conjunction with other dental treatments, even braces. You could still benefit from Invisalign if you:
Currently Wear Braces
Some patients' dental needs require traditional braces before the use of Invisalign. If you would like to make the transition, speak with your dentist to see if Invisalign could be a future straightening option for you.
Your Teeth Have Shifted After Braces
Invisalign can treat simple to complex straightening issues. If your teeth shifted after having your braces removed, talk with your dentist to see if Invisalign can offer a discreet solution to get your teeth back in line.
Invisalign vs. Braces
The main draw to Invisalign is that it is a discreet way to straighten your teeth. Most people will not notice your clear aligners, which can give you the confidence to go throughout your day as normal. Since they are removable, they are easier to keep clean, which lowers the risk of cavities and teeth staining. While Invisalign can fix mild to moderate straightening issues, some patients may have orthodontic issues that surpass the scope of what Invisalign can accomplish.
Traditional braces can fix mild to severe orthodontic issues. Some patients start with metal braces and then transition to Invisalign to finish their treatment. Braces are only removable by a dental professional so cleaning them is not as easy as cleaning their Invisalign counterparts. Also, certain foods like sticky candies are not recommended while wearing braces because they can get stuck in the brackets and sit on your teeth, potentially causing cavities and tooth staining.
