What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic appliance system used to inconspicuously treat crooked and crowded teeth in adults and teens.


This modern take on braces features a system of clear aligner trays that are worn at all times with the exception of during meals and when brushing or flossing.


The trays are custom fitted to the teeth, making them virtually unnoticeable when laughing, talking and eating with other people.


Patients receive a sequence of trays, each of which is slightly different than the one before. The aligners provide a slight resistance to the teeth, forcing them to move into alignment over time. With Invisalign, adults and teens can achieve the smiles they’ve always wanted without feeling self-conscious about the mode of treatment.

How does Invisalign® work?

As an Invisalign® Dentist, Dr. Jafari straightens teeth using a series of aligners. 

  • First, an impression of your teeth is taken so that a series of aligners can be created in a dental lab. The aligners themselves are made out of a thermoplastic material that is strong and at the same time flexible in order to be comfortable when worn for long periods of time. The material is virtually invisible.
  • The aligners should be worn for 22 hours a day and every two weeks; they need to be switched out with the next one in the series. Over a period of months, the aligners will slowly move teeth into place, making one minor adjustment at a time that is targeted to specific teeth. This helps your teeth to be comfortable as they are moved into position at a manageable pace. Once you are done wearing your aligners, your teeth should be perfectly straight.

Benefits of Invisalign®

Patients throughout Virginia prefer wearing Invisalign® because of how convenient it is as compared with wearing traditional braces.

The aligners are clear so no one can tell you’re wearing them. They are only worn for 22 hours a day so you can take them out to eat dinner, go on a date, or make an important presentation at work. You can brush and floss your teeth like normal, and no additional tools are required.

There is also less of a risk that your teeth will become stained as compared with wearing metal braces that can be difficult to clean.

Furthermore, the procedure is more comfortable than metal braces since the aligners move teeth into place slowly and only focus on a few teeth at a time. Invisalign aligners are also very easy to take care of, and you only use the same aligner for a couple of weeks.

This is a great dentist office! I would not have been happier with my experience. Everyone was super welcoming, genuine, professional and kind.

Really great office! I've been coming here a lot during the past year after a super long dental hiatus. They've been incredibly accommodating and have options for patients with sensitivity options like me

Dr. Jafari and her staff make going to the dentist a much less scary experience. Everyone is thoughtful, knowledgeable, professional and pleasant. I can't recommend VA Family Dentistry enough!
