The common misconception is most patients think they are not eligible candidates for Invisalign. The reality is, Invisalign has helped thousands of adults, AND TEENS, achieve a perfect smile without anyone knowing they were in braces!
In November of last year, I expressed my concerns to Dr. Kravitz about the spaces/ overlapping of my teeth. I am getting married in June of this year and Dr. Kravitz promised he could make my smile absolutely perfect for my big day just by using Invisalign! Our staff took a digital scan of my teeth with our fantastic iTero scanner (no more impressions-hooray!!), within 3 quick weeks my trays arrived at our office.
What surprised me the most was how comfortable the trays are to wear! I could take the trays in and out when I eat, pop them right back in and go about my day without having the hassle of food getting stuck in the brackets of traditional braces. When talking to patients throughout the day, I would mention I was wearing Invisalign and they were shocked to see how clear they are making it virtually impossible to notice! We have been known to treat a lot of business professionals who choose Invisalign because of public speaking events as Invisalign will not affect speech.
Invisalign trays are worn 20-22 hours a day, removed when eating or drinking, changing aligners every two weeks. Invisalign is especially great for those who travel often, appointments will only be needed about every 6-8 weeks.
Our consultations are always complementary and we would love to meet you! Request an appointment online or give our office a call at 703-722-2900. If you have any further questions about Invisalign, or Invisalign Teen, visit our Invisalign website!
