Straightening your teeth is good for your confidence and your oral health. However, many patients are reluctant to wear braces.

At our Leesburg, VA, practice, there's a different, discreet option available: Invisalign® clear aligners. 

Unlike some dental offices, Smile Designer of Leesburg also has a specialty-trained orthodontist on staff, Dr. Sooyeon Ahn, to help patients achieve straighter teeth.

The Basics of Invisalign

The Invisalign system brings your teeth and bite into alignment with a series of custom-made clear aligners. Invisalign patients wear their aligners for around 22 hours a day, and the aligners apply gentle pressure to gradually move the teeth into optimal position.

Patients switch from one aligner to the next approximately every two weeks, and most patients can expect to achieve their ideal teeth straightening results in 12 months or less.

Straighten Your Smile: Traditional Treatment, Lasting Results

Some local Leesburg, VA, dentists may offer Invisalign, but they'll have to refer out if they encounter a more complicated case. At our practice, on the other hand, Dr. Ahn can handle more demanding levels of misalignment.

She also offers multiple types of braces—including more subtle ceramic braces—for those cases. That way, you can choose the right orthodontic option for your needs, lifestyle, and budget.

Important Information About Invisalign Pricing 

Because every smile is different, the cost of Invisalign varies from patient to patient. Our Leesburg, VA, dentists want as many members of the community as possible to experience the benefits of excellent oral health and a confident smile. To find out exactly what Invisalign will cost you, schedule a consultation at our office.

The Invisalign Process A Timeline

When you first meet with Dr. Ahn, she will discuss your concerns and goals, examine your bite, and take photos and scans of your smile.

Precise Diagnosis & Advanced Equipment

Our office is equipped with a 3D cephalometric imaging unit and an advanced intraoral scanner, which can show the precise positions of your teeth and jaw. Based on these images and a visual evaluation by Dr. Ahn, we can determine your candidacy for Invisalign.

Honest Advice

Dr. Ahn is committed to patient success and will only recommend Invisalign treatment to strong candidates. If you or your teen are not good candidates for Invisalign, we offer a wide range of alternative orthodontic options.

Designing Your Treatment Plan

If you do qualify for orthodontics with Invisalign aligners, Dr. Ahn will need to custom-design a treatment plan for you based on the models of your bite. Then, your design specifications and digital impressions are sent to the Invisalign lab where each aligner is fabricated. After two to three weeks, you will return to our dental office to receive your aligners and begin your treatment.

Wearing Your Aligners

At the start of your treatment plan, you will receive all of your clear aligners at once. To achieve optimal results as quickly as possible, you should wear your aligners for about 22 hours a day. They should only be removed for eating, drinking anything other than water, brushing, and flossing.

Changing Your Aligners

You will be ready to move from one set of clear aligners to the next about every two weeks. A new set of aligners may feel tight and mildly uncomfortable for the first few days after switching, but this should subside quickly as your teeth shift into position.

Regular Checkups

About every four to six weeks, you will return to our dental office so Dr. Ahn can evaluate your progress. Every three months, we will provide a cleaning to protect your teeth throughout treatment. 


Every person's smile is different, but most patients can complete their Invisalign treatment in 12 months or less. Just one year from now, you could have a beautiful new smile that you'll love to share.

How to Take Care of Your Clear Aligners

Clean Them Regularly

You should clean your clear aligners every day. Make sure that you wash them using cool, clean water and mild soap only. You should also avoid putting them in the dishwasher, as it can damage the flexible plastic.

Store Them Properly

Whether you're taking your aligners out for a meal or you're done with a set entirely, always make sure to store them properly. You should put them in their case or, for older pairs, keep them in a cool, dry place.

Hold Onto Old Pairs

Keep old aligners stored properly in your home—you'll be glad you did. Why? If you ever lose or damage an aligner, you can simply wear the one you used most recently, making it simpler to stay on track.
