How Do Invisalign Clear Braces Work?
Have you had braces before, but then stopped wearing your retainer? Have your teeth nearly shifted back to the way they looked before you had orthodontic treatment? Invisalign braces may be just what you need to discreetly get your straight teeth back!
Invisalign clear braces can also be a great option for your smile if you have never worn braces, but have mild to moderate crowding of your teeth. As an Invisalign dentist, Dr. Khattab can help you straighten your teeth without having to use traditional metal braces.
Are Invisalign Braces Right For Me?
When straightening your teeth, traditional braces may seem like your only option but you may not like the look or feel of metal on your teeth. Invisalign has a similar teeth straightening ability to braces, but are almost invisible.
If our Lorton dentists determine you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, clear aligners are created to fit over your teeth in the same way that a mouth guard or whitening tray would. Each set of these clear braces are worn for about 2 weeks, then are swapped out for the next set.
Over time, Invisalign braces move your teeth to a straighter, more aligned position within your mouth. In many of Lorton Town Dental's cases, the Invisalign process takes a year or less to complete.

Invisalign Teen Braces
If your teenager needs orthodontic treatment, Invisalign could be a better solution to straighten their teeth than using traditional metal braces.
Invisalign Teen® is made specifically for teenagers and provides a nearly invisible method of straightening their teeth using clear, removable aligners that are custom-made for your teen’s smile. While traditional braces use wires, brackets, and bands, Invisalign makes getting a straighter smile simple with clear aligners.
At Lorton Family Dental we often recommend Invisalign to our teenage patients because:
Treatment is discreet
Invisalign clear aligners are comfortable to wear
Teens can easily remove the aligners to brush and floss their teeth, keeping their smile healthy during orthodontic treatment
There's no risk of emergency dental visits because of breaking wires or damaged brackets
Straightening their teeth with Invisalign often takes less time than with traditional orthodontic treatment
How Much Do Invisalign Braces Cost?
Everyone's smile is unique, so the cost of any orthodontic treatment is individualized for each patient. The cost of Invisalign is similar to traditional braces and other comparable orthodontic treatments.
The best way to get all the information you need about Invisalign treatment cost is to schedule a consultation with our Invisalign dentists so we can discuss your individual treatment needs and budget requirements.
Flexible payment options are often available and your dental insurance may even cover part of your Invisalign treatment!
