Get Invisalign® and ClearCorrect™ Clear Braces In Midlothian VA
Invisalign® and ClearCorrect™ are a modern new way to straighten teeth that are misaligned.
With these high-tech alternatives to traditional braces, you won’t have wires to poke your mouth or the stigma of wearing braces. Instead, you’ll wear a series of custom-made plastic aligners that gradually and gently shift your teeth into place.
These clear braces are smooth and comfortable, virtually invisible, and best of all — you can remove them to eat and brush your teeth, making it easy to maintain your oral health.
With Invisalign and ClearCorrect™, there are no metal brackets to attach. No wires to tighten. No torn cheeks and gums. No swallowing two aspirin after your wires are tightened. You simply pick up a new set of aligners to straighten teeth every two weeks until your treatment is over.
Adults and Teenagers Love Clear Braces
Best of all, since the aligners are made of clear plastic, people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.
Got an important presentation to give? No problem. You can remove them occasionally without it impacting your treatment (just make sure you put them back in again when the speech is over).
Adults and teenagers alike love the fact that clear braces don’t call attention to their teeth, yet all the while their smile is getting straighter and straighter.
What Are Invisible Braces?

Your First Clear Braces Appointment
Getting started with Invisalign® or ClearCorrect™ is simple. We first take x-rays, photographs and impressions of your teeth at our Midlothian practice near Bon Air and Richmond and use them to create a digital 3-D image. From these images we will map out a precise cosmetic dental treatment plan for you, including diagramming the exact movements of your teeth. We will even prepare a virtual representation of how your teeth will move with each stage of treatment.
Based on your individual treatment plan, we’ll make a series of clear braces (also called ‘aligners’) custom made for your mouth. And you don’t have to worry about pain — these aligners are made of smooth, comfortable BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks and gums like traditional metal braces often do. You’ll wear them throughout the day, removing them only when you eat or brush and floss your teeth.
You will begin wearing new aligners about every two to four weeks. As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually begin to shift into place. We will see you every six weeks or so to monitor your progress. At every stage, you will see how much closer you are to having your new smile.
For best results, you’ll need to wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours per day. Treatment typically takes approximately a year for adults to straighten teeth effectively. For teens, length of treatment is generally about the same as conventional braces.
Invisalign’s® invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners will give you the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted. And best of all, no one can tell you’re wearing them.

How Do Clear Braces Straighten Teeth?
- You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
- As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to the their final position.
- You’ll visit us about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
- Total treatment time averages 9 to 15 months and the average number of clear braces during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary on a case-by-case basis.
