Invisalign – Clear Wireless Braces

Invisalign Invisible Braces in Centrevile, VA

Invislaign clear braces with Centreville dentistDo you want straighter teeth, but hate the thought of braces? At Centreville Dental Wellness Center, we offer a fantastic alternative to braces. Invisalign clear braces for adults and teens alike allow you to get a straighter smile with a virtually invisible orthodontic appliance.

If you never had braces when you were a child, but you’re wary about getting metal braces for adults, then Invisalign clear braces could be the solution for you. Though there is a special type of Invisalign treatment designed for teenagers, traditional Invisalign aligners are designed for adults and can give you the straight teeth and beautiful smile you’ve always wanted without metal brackets or waiting years for results.

The Invisalign treatment has become one of the most sought-after dental treatments for adults in recent years. That’s because Invisalign does something that many years ago no one thought would ever be possible: It straightens teeth invisibly, comfortably, and usually in only about one year. Invisalign aligners are not braces, but they can correct simple malocclusion and crooked front teeth as well as braces can.

Invisalign Aligners vs. Metal Braces

The advantages of Invisalign clear aligners over braces are numerous—especially if you’re looking for braces for adults options. In addition to being made of nearly invisible, clear material, the aligner trays are removable so you can brush your teeth and eat without them interfering.

“Getting braces as an adult is not fun. But so is not having straight teeth. After wanting to fix my smile forever, I came to Centreville Dental Wellness Center. I talked with Dr. Vakay about Invisalign, and I was so happy with my treatment. No one knew my teeth were getting fixed, and today, I’m proud to show my smile!”

They are more comfortable than braces and take much less time to get used to. You clean the aligners outside of your mouth, and every few weeks we’ll give you a completely new set of aligners, so they are always fresh. Best of all, the entire clear braces treatment time is about a year on average, which is much shorter than the usual treatment time with braces.

There are a few things that Invisalign aligners can’t do. If you have severe malocclusion or teeth that require vertical rotation, braces are necessary to fix these problems.

Generally, Invisalign works best for the front teeth that show when you smile. Getting these teeth straightened and properly aligned is not only good for your physical appearance and your self-esteem; it also helps all of your teeth to maintain their proper position and stay healthy.

The Process of Getting Invisalign Clear Braces

Invislaign clear braces in Fairfax and Chantilly logoGetting Invisalign clear braces starts with a consultation and exam so we can determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment. Once we’ve determined that Invisalign aligners will work for your smile, we’ll start you with the process to straighten your teeth.

  • At Centreville Dental Wellness Center, we use the iTero scanner to take a digital impression of your mouth to design your aligner trays.
  • Not only is this more comfortable than the old-fashioned goopy molds and plaster models, but it also speeds up the process as the treatment plan can also be created digitally.
  • We will then digitally transmit the impression and treatment plan to the Invisalign lab so your aligners can be created.
  • We’ll give you your sets of Invisalign aligner trays as well as instructions for how to wear them and take care of them.
  • Invisalign treatment works best and fastest if you wear your clear braces as much as possible; about 20–22 hours a day or more is recommended. The aligners should only be removed for cleaning and while you eat and drink.
  • You will replace your aligners approximately every two weeks as your teeth gradually move into position.
“Truly a wonderful and pleasurable experience working with Dr. Vakay + team, every visit! It was recommended that I get Invisalign to straighten out my smile and overall jaw alignment. Not only did the Invisalign process feel thorough and simple, it also improved my speech impediment (lisp). Dr. Vakay had mentioned that this would be a potential benefit but I never expected it to work so well. I appreciate all of the genuine feedback and conversation around my oral health, and the generally excellent care that Dr. Vakay and her staff continue to provide!”
-Diana R

Unlike metal braces that require frequent readjustments, a set of new aligners is all you need to keep a proper fit as your teeth’ movement progresses. Because of this, we’ll only need to see you in the office a couple of times to make sure everything is going according to plan and we don’t need to adjust your aligner treatment at all.

Because of the near-invisibility of the aligners and the fact that you are more involved in their care by taking them out to clean them daily, you can better see and understand the progress your teeth are making than you can with braces!

Faster Results With Propel Orthodontics

Smiling Centreville Invislaign patient with Propel OrthodonticsPropel is a revolutionary technology for accelerated orthodontics. What does that mean? We can complete your Invisalign treatment 3–10 months sooner, cutting treatment time by 50–60%. You’ll be ready to show off your new straight teeth sooner, and you’ll have fewer checkups to add to your schedule.

How does Propel work? Invisalign aligners apply precise pressure to each tooth to move it through the jawbone to a new position—and you can add Propel acceleration to your Invisalign treatment. Propel is a treatment that stimulates the jawbone in certain positions to become more flexible to allow the teeth to move through the bone more quickly.

During a short procedure, we’ll use local anesthesia to keep you comfortable. Then, we’ll create tiny dimples in your jaw with the pre-set Propel device. This will allow your teeth to move easier, and therefore more quickly.

Invisalign Frequently Asked Questions

How long do you have to wear Invisalign aligners?

While Invisalign clear braces are removable, it is recommended that you only take them out for brushing and eating. It does not take long for teeth to start to shift back out of place and leaving your aligners out for prolonged periods of time could cause discomfort when you put them back in. Leaving your aligners out for too long can also extend the amount of time needed to complete your treatment. Wearing your aligners for at least 22 hours a day will ensure your treatment plan stays on schedule and you achieve optimal results.

How long does Invisalign treatment take to complete?

Invisalign orthodontic treatment can take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years from start to finish. The average Invisalign case takes around 12 months to complete. Everyone’s teeth move and respond differently to orthodontics, though, and so the time required to complete treatment will vary depending on the individual and their unique case.

How much does Invisalign treatment cost?

The total cost of orthodontic treatment with Invisalign will vary depending on the complexity of the case, number of aligners needed, and the amount of time needed to achieve the desired results. The average cost of Invisalign is typically between $3,000 and $6,000 with more complicated cases costing more. We accept dental insurance as well as offer financing and flexible payment options with easy monthly payments through our dental financing partners.

Will dental insurance cover Invisalign?

Many PPO insurance plans will cover some portion of your orthodontic treatment plan. This will depend on whether or not your human resources department has negotiated this as a benefit and what their orthodontic benefit maximum is. Most companies will cover between 25% to 50% of the Invisalign treatment’s total cost. Our office accepts PPO dental insurance plans and will gladly help process your claim.

Will I need to wear a retainer after Invisalign?

Most doctors will recommend that patients who have undergone any sort of orthodontic treatment wear a retainer for some time afterwards, at least at night. A retainer will help ensure that your teeth do not start to move back out of place and will keep your new smile looking as straight as it did the day your treatment plan ended.

What Our Patients Say

Am I an anxious dental patient? YES!!! BUT, I am so thankful for Centreville Dental Wellness Center. Walking in the front door for an appointment, I am ALWAYS welcomed so warmly by the staff. They have the brightest smiles and emit such positive energy, and it's obvious they enjoy their jobs and each other. So thankful for the dental hygienist who is super encouraging to me, reminds me to breathe and relax my shoulders (even when I'm not even aware how my body is reacting!) I've been forever impacted by Dr. Vakay's technician during dental procedures who has squeezed my hand to give me strength -- such a small gesture but so helpful that I've paid this forward many times for others who are anxious! Dr. Vakay is always supportive, encouraging and emits such strength herself that I believe her and trust her judgment and recommendations. I loved hearing her say at my last visit regarding her job, "it is my joy and my purpose." There is no doubt she is doing what she is called to do! AND with JOY!

Joyce M.

I went to see Dr Vakay to get a dental appliance for my sleep apnea and ended up switching to the office for my routine dental care as well. The whole staff is knowledgeable and friendly and they made me feel very comfortable and valued. I honestly have never received such a thorough cleaning before and my snoring has stopped. Very happy with my experience!

Mary K.

I broke a front tooth crown off at the gum line. Dr. Abel was able to see me within a couple of hours After assessing the damage he presented me with several options for a repair and devised a way to hold a temporary tooth in place. Permanent repair is scheduled. I couldnt be happier with the care I received.

Elaine M.

I just recently moved to Northern Virginia and Centreville Dental Wellness Center was recommended to me and also had great reviews online. My first appointment was 23Jun2023 and everyone from the ladies at the front desk to Dr. Abel and his assistant were outstanding. Thrilled to have found this amazing team!!

Nina A.

Dr Abel, the front desk, hygienist team and everyone in between is At. I have gone to CDWC for years and sometimes travel 2+ hours for a visit. They provide organized, and trustworthy service, but more importantly personable with their care.

J K.

Centreville Dental Wellness was and is an amazing place. I had multiple issues and they were very patient with me. They are very experienced and know their stuff. I love them all particularly Dr Abel who took a lot of time with me and made sure I was straight. I pray that God continues to bless them and their business.

Arlene D.

I highly recommend Centreville Dental Wellness Center! I always have a great, smooth experience here. Dr.s Vakay and Abel are outstanding dentists, professional as well as friendly and approachable. The staff is efficient, welcoming and caring. I've been patient for years and cannot say enough great things about this practice.


WOW! I look amazing!! ; My 2 front teeth were worn and chipped. It affected my smile and confidence. After the restorative (yet gentle) work by the team at Centreville Dental Wellness, I can truly say this practice is second to none! The crowns look so natural and I'm so glad I can smile again!! When my husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas... said "my 2 front teeth" and thanks to the masterful cosmetic work done by Dr. Vacay and her assistant Christina, my Christmas wish came true! Gotta give a shout out to the friendly and supportive front office staff as well, Tonia, Sylvia and Sogand. Merry Christmas to all!!

Anastasia P.

Dr. Vakay and her team are excellent. They are careful, thorough, and attentive to the patient's concerns. They take the time to explain how to maintain healthy teeth and gums. I have always been completely satisfied.

Bruce S.

I've only ever been to one dentist, and don't have any plans to change that! Dr. Vakay, Dr. Abel, and the entire staff at Centreville Dental Wellness Center provide a patient experience that is both timelessly reliable and constantly improving. Recently, I came to them with jaw pain related to TMJ, and after real discussion concerning all my options, they set me up with a kois product that has eliminated the pain and dramatically improved my range of motion. It's been a true success story!

Jake W.

Ok, this is the first review I have EVER written. This morning I had a procedure done by Dr. Vakay with her assistant Christina, that was, without exception, the best experience at a dentist office I have ever encountered. The professionalism and expertise between these two was nothing short of a 'dance." | felt that seamless interaction, put me at ease. The front desk is wonderful to work with. I left another practice in Haymarket because of the way they handled the financial. I have great dental insurance and was told as I was sitting in the chair, that the doctor would not do the procedure unless I gave them a credit card. At which point I demanded to see the doctor and told him I was aghast at his greater interest in getting paid than my teeth and walked out. This is how a dental office should run, and they have hit a very high mark as the daughter of an orthodontist. Bravo Team Centreville Wellness.
