One of the reasons why patients with crooked teeth avoid talking to their dentist about their concerns is due to fear of having to undergo traditional metal and bracket wire braces. The idea of hiding behind unsightly metal appliances to achieve their dream smile is a turnoff for both teenagers and adults. Additionally, many adults are unaware that orthodontic work can be done at any point in their lives! With Dr. Chong Lee and his team at Galleria Dental Aesthetics, McLean, VA area patients will find that patients of any age can straighten their smile without the embarrassment of conventional wires and brackets.
Can I undergo orthodontics as an adult?
Absolutely! At Galleria dental Aesthetics, we see patients of all ages in our practice seeking solutions for misaligned teeth. We find that many adults enjoy our straightening options which include Invisalign orthodontics.
Understanding how Invisalign works
Patients love the idea of straightening their teeth without metal brackets and wires. With Invisalign, teenagers and adults can obtain a better aligned dental arch that can significantly improve the appearance of their smiles. Invisalign uses clear plastic trays that fit over the dental arch to gently reposition the teeth into better alignment. All of this starts with a consultation appointment, during which Dr. Chong Lee will take digital impressions of the current smile and tooth alignment. Then, this information is sent off to the Invisalign laboratories, where a series of trays is created. Patients wear the trays in order for two weeks each to experience the gradual straightening of the smile! With proper compliance, most patients obtain their dream smile within a year—and without the use of invasive metal appliances on their teeth! This makes Invisalign the “clear choice” for many of our patients!
