Invisalign: A More Comfortable Route to Straighter Teeth

Confident Smiles, Invisible Straightening

smiling man with glassesDr. Burden is a preferred provider for Invisalign® in Newport News, Williamsburg, the teeth straightening process which uses almost invisible plastic “aligners” to straighten teeth. Quite simply, aligners are customized, personally fitted plastic trays that fit compactly over your teeth, moving them gradually every two weeks to the position Dr. Burden has pre-determined.

Invisalign is a great way to quickly and invisibly straighten your teeth in an almost undetectable way without the embarrassment of traditional braces.

How does Invisalign work?

Every two weeks you will change the aligners Dr. Burden has previously had prepared for you. Every six weeks you will come back to the office for Dr. Burden to check up on your teeth and see how they (and you) are doing. If things are going as they should,  Dr. Burden will give you a new set of three aligners for the next six weeks.

How long does it take?

How do I take care of my aligners?

You can take care of your aligners easily. Simply take them out to eat or when you floss and brush your teeth.
