Invisalign offers our patients straight, beautiful teeth. Traditional braces with metal and wires aren’t desirable for every patient. However, at our Leesburg, Virginia dental office, we offer Invisalign clear braces. This cosmetic dentistry procedure allows us to gradually shift your teeth invisibly. After a regular dental examination, Dr. Cochran can determine whether you’re a viable Invisalign candidate.
Which is better: braces or Invisalign?
Honestly, both procedures do the same thing. However, Invisalign in Leesburg, Virginia is done in a way in that no one truly knows you have them in. They gradually move the teeth to their desired positions without anyone knowing it. This makes it a popular choice for teens and adults alike who want to maintain a beautiful smile without metal and wires.
Is Invisalign painful?
Some patients do have an adjustment period getting used to the aligners, but generally, it involves minimal discomfort. Every couple of weeks, a new aligner is placed that allows your teeth to adjust to their new position and to progress to your overall goal. While this occurs, you can enjoy all the same things and eat and speak the same without feeling insecure. These aligners are removable too unlike traditional braces. Ultimately, this is a great cosmetic dentistry procedure for someone looking to improve their smile in an invisible way with no inconveniences.
How long does the Invisalign process take?
The process can vary patient to patient depending on their existing oral health situation and their desired smile.
