Invisalign – Clear Wireless Braces

Want straighter teeth but hate the thought of braces? Invisalign allows you to get a straighter smile with a virtually invisible orthodontic appliance. At Centreville Dental Wellness Center, we let you know if you qualify for Invisalign to improve the appearance and function of your teeth.

If you never had braces when you were a child; if you have crooked teeth that embarrass you but you’d be embarrassed to spend a few years wearing braces, then Invisalign could be the solution for you. Though there is a special type of Invisalign designed for teenagers, traditional Invisalign aligners are designed for adults and can give you the straight and beautiful smile you’ve always wanted without metal brackets and without 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.

The advantages of Invisalign over braces are numerous. In addition to being made of nearly invisible, clear material, the aligners are removable so you can brush your teeth and eat without them interfering. 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 you get a completely new set of aligners, so they are always fresh. Best of all, the entire 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 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.

“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!”

Getting Invisalign starts with a consultation and exam. At Centreville Dental Wellness Center, we can determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign, and then begin a treatment plan. Your aligners are replaced approximately every two weeks as your teeth gradually move into position. Unlike dentures that require frequent readjustments, a set of new aligners is all that is needed to keep a proper fit as your teeth movement progresses. 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.

Invisalign treatment works best and fastest if you wear your aligners as much as possible; about 22 hours a day or more is recommended. The aligners should only be removed for cleaning and for you to brush and floss your teeth, and eat and drink.

What Our Patients Say

Dr Rena Vakay and her staff are truly the best. I have been going to the practice for many, many years and their professionalism is over the top. Long before Covid Centreville Dental Wellness has been top gold standard with office cleanliness. Dr Vakay is honest, bright, top rated and the best doctor I've had the pleasure of working with. The office is always in front of all the new technology. I can't say enough about this practice.

Kim M.

Dr Vakay is THE very best dentist ever. She is the only dentist who uses preventive dentistry rather than reactive. My teeth have never been in better condition. She measures my gums to be sure there is no change or recession every time. She also does beautiful cosmetic dentistry. I am proof!!!

Annie C.

Dr. Vakay and her assistant Christina are true artists. Their cosmetic dentistry skills are top notch. They made 5 new crowns for my upper front teeth and they look and feel beautiful and healthy. They were a pleasure to work with. When I brought to their attention that the color was a little brighter than I had anticipated, they offered to bleach my bottom teeth a second time (at no cost to me). That's true customer service.

Mary S.

I have been coming to Centreville Dental Wellness for 11 years, first to Dr. Judith Thomas and after she retired, to Dr. Jason Abel. My experience here has always been top notch and the entire office staff are professional and informed. I have had a variety of procedures and the office is good at getting me in on short notice, keeping me apprised of financial costs based on what my insurance will or will not cover, and making what could be a stressful time far less so. I highly recommend this practice across the board.

Louise M.

The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and I have never waited more that 5 minutes to get in and seen by either the hygienist or Dr. Vakay. The teeth cleaning is the best I have ever had hands down! My teeth feel and look amazing after having a cleaning at Centreville Dental Wellness Center.

Colleen M.

Dr. Vakay's office is Very friendly, detailed and efficient with their dental care! Old school patient service that doesn't exist any more . She is a "diamond ", shiny star!

Jason Y.

I have been going to Centreville Wellness for over 20 years. First went there by chance (there was no Yelp at the time), but have continued to go based on quality of work, price and customer service. They have certainly made changes to their practice since I first started going there; all of which were good. Dr. Vakay knows whats going on and how to take care of her patients.

Rob M.

Our family has been going to this dental practice for years, even before Dr. Vakay and Dr. Abel were there. We stayed through the transition because of the wonderful care we received. Everyone of the staff with whom I have interacted have not only been great at their jobs, but cheerful, friendly and kind. I trust both doctors. They combine new technology and treatment with old-fashioned, personal care. I highly recommend the practice.
