Invisalign An Overview
Find your way to a straighter smile with Invisalign treatment. We understand the social impacts crooked teeth can have on your life. But did you know crooked teeth can also affect your dental health?
Invisalign is a discreet, comfortable way to achieve a straighter smile without having to compromise the appearance of your smile. This revolutionary orthodontic treatment uses clear, removable aligners to gently reposition your teeth. Invisalign treatment does not require wires, brackets, or metal, which makes it the ideal solution for patients who are seeking an alternative to traditional metal braces. With removable aligners, you can brush, floss, and rinse thoroughly and comfortably. You can even continue to enjoy your favorite foods without restriction.
Invisalign clear braces can be the solution you’ve been searching for. Visit Dr. Mark Jefferies and our dental care team to determine if Invisalign is right for you.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign is one of the most effective ways to achieve a straighter smile. The aligners are completely clear, so most people won’t realize you are wearing your aligners until you tell them. This allows you to straighten your smile without compromising your appearance.
Your aligners are comprised of high-quality clear plastic and are removed and replaced in two-week increments. When choosing Invisalign, there is a range of factors to consider, including cost, effectiveness, and projected results. Our team can work with you to discover if Invisalign is the right solution for your smile.
Am I Candidate For Invisalign?
If you would like to determine if you are an ideal candidate for Invisalign, you will need to visit our Herndon dentist office for a consultation. During your consultation, Dr. Jefferies will discuss your goals of treatment, evaluate your teeth, and determine if Invisalign is a viable option for you.
In many cases, Invisalign can work for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic concerns. For advanced cases, you may need to undergo a more complex treatment to address your concerns.

The Invisalign Process
The Consultation: During the consultation, Dr. Jefferies will discuss your cosmetic dentistry goals and evaluate your smile to determine if Invisalign is right for you. In many cases, Invisalign is ideal for teens and adults with mild to moderate orthodontic issues. Our goal is to help you address your orthodontic concerns and get you one step closer to your ideal smile.
Building Your Custom Treatment Plan: To build the most effective treatment plan, we use digital technology to create 3D images of your teeth. This advanced technology eliminates the need for messy impressions and creates a more accurate impression. During this process, we will assess smile and determine the appropriate number of aligners you will need as well as determine the length of your treatment. We will gladly answer any questions you may have about your Invisalign treatment.
Fabricating Your Custom Aligners: Once we take impressions of your teeth, we will send the information to an Invisalign lab for the fabrication of your new aligners. The fabrication process will take a few weeks, and once it is completed, we will invite you back to our office. During your final fitting, we will check the size and fit of your aligners to ensure a satisfactory result. Dr. Jefferies will be sure to explain all aspects of your treatment and answer any questions you may have.
Taking Care of Your Aligners: To make the most out of your Invisalign treatments be sure to follow all your aftercare instructions. You should wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day and only remove them to eat, floss, and brush.
During your treatment, we will schedule periodic visits to our office to check your progress. If necessary, we will make adjustments to your treatment to give you the best possible outcome.
