Many patients with crooked teeth or a misaligned bite choose to consult with a dentist to gradually straighten and correct their teeth for a beautiful smile at the end of the process. At City Smiles DC, we offer Invisalign invisible aligners as an alternative to traditional metal braces. This is a great option for patients of all ages who want to fix their smile without the experience of clunky braces. Many of our professional patients love this treatment!
The first step toward a more rewarding smile is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ross at City Smiles DC. As an outstanding Invisalign provider for Washington, DC, Bethesda, MD, and Arlington, VA, Dr. Ross can evaluate your oral health, discuss the Invisalign process in more detail, and help determine if Invisalign clear aligners are the best solution for you.

"Dr. Ross came recommended to me by a friend's family dentist, and I couldn't be happier with the service I receive. Not only do Dr. Ross and his staff make sure you're comfortable and take the time to go over what you're looking for with your dental health/provider, they also go above and beyond to address specific areas of concern. Dr. Ross clearly is incredibly experienced in dentistry and keeps abreast of the latest technology, while also being personally invested in his patients. He provides his professional expertise but also works with you to plan out your care based on your specific needs, priorities, or limitations. Also, I have incredibly sensitive teeth, and his staff checked in every step of the way to make sure I was comfortable and adjusted their approach as necessary. They are so gentle and thorough with cleanings--first cleaning I actually enjoyed! If you are someone who is anxious or had a difficult history with your teeth, or just looking for a great cleaning, I couldn't recommend him/his team more!"- A.G. / Google / May 29, 2017
"My experience with Dr.Ross, Melissa, Jennifer and Tina was great. On my first appointment I came with my 2 yr old because I couldn't find a babysitter in time and everyone was very accommodating. Dr.Ross' wife even played with him while I used the restroom! Wonderful team wonderful service! Also my dental work is amazing, highly recommended."- S.G. / Yelp / May 27, 2017

What to Expect@headingTag>
While Invisalign is safe and effective for most patients, teenagers and adults are the best candidates. It is especially useful for those with overbites, underbites, rotated or crooked teeth, crowded teeth, or excessive spacing between teeth.
To be fitted for Invisalign, a dentist will take photos, digital X-rays, and make impressions of the patient’s teeth. From these, a set of clear, plastic, customized aligners will be created to fit the patient’s mouth. The aligners are part of a treatment plan that will make gradual changes and adjustments to the teeth. A patient wears the aligners for a predetermined amount of time before moving onto the next aligner. Conveniently, aligners are pain-free and easily removable which is ideal for eating, brushing, and flossing.
A dentist will determine how long a patient needs to wear Invisalign depending on the starting condition of the patient’s teeth. New aligners will be created about every 2 weeks or as needed to incrementally adjust the patient’s teeth. Throughout the process, the patient will have regular check-ups with the dentist to confirm the patient’s progress. Most patients achieve full results in 12 – 18 months.
The price of Invisalign is dependent upon the patient’s condition, with more severe cases costing more. Our front office will check with the patient’s insurance carrier to see if any costs will be covered under their policy. If you are paying out-of-pocket, we can discuss financing options at your consultation.
