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.
"I came to Dr. Ross after a life-long dental phobia. Today he crowned four of my molars and I never felt any pain - not once. Dr. Ross and his staff made sure I was comfortable throughout the five hours I was at the office having work done. I couldn’t be more impressed....I never want to see any other dentist. Dr. Ross and his team are amazing....I love them! ♥️"- K.A. / Google / May 23, 2019

"All my dental visits to Dr. Ross's office have been pleasant and painless. I like that he telephones in the evening to see if you are doing all right, if he has performed a big procedure like wisdom tooth extraction."- K.M. / Google / May 21, 2019

What to Expect
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.
Invisalign will determine how long a patient needs to wear the aligners depending on the starting condition of the patient’s teeth. New aligners will need to be worn about every 2 weeks or as needed to incrementally adjust the patient’s teeth. Throughout the process, the patient will have regular check-ups, about every 6 weeks, 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.
