A Straighter Smile, A More Confident You  Request Your Consultation Today

Misalignment can affect your self-confidence, causing you to cover your teeth and mouth when you smile, talk, or laugh. That explains why many individuals who have straightened their teeth with orthodontics experience improved confidence. Straighter teeth and a more attractive smile can make people feel more comfortable in social situations.

Orthodontics: Your Treatment Options

We offer a range of orthodontic services at our Leesburg, VA, dental office, allowing Dr. Ahn to find the optimal option for your needs and goals.

Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are a powerful treatment available to most individuals. Metal braces move the teeth using brackets, bands, and wires to help you achieve straighter, more symmetrical teeth.

Contact Us to Get Started

Ceramic Braces

For patients who are worried about the aesthetics of traditional metal braces, we can also provide tooth-colored brackets. Ceramic braces are stain-resistant and less noticeable than metal brackets.

Many teens and adults choose Invisalign clear aligners due to their comfort and discreet appearance. Since patients must wear the trays for 22 hours each day, treatment requires a high level of commitment to achieve the desired effects.

In order to maintain the results of your orthodontic treatment, our office can also create a custom retainer for you. These appliances can be removable or permanent.

I have been going to Smile Designers of Leesburg for a couple of years now. I have had the usual routine cleanings, a crown, and a filling (replaced). Been very happy with the services. They are almost always on time, and efficient.

In this pandemic era, they are taking a lot of precautions. Appointment was still on time though.

Braces vs. Invisalign
How Do These Orthodontic Options Work?

Braces illustration

Braces may be a better option for individuals that have more severe dental misalignment issues or overcrowding. This highly effective treatment can take anywhere from several months to a few years to correct orthodontic issues.

Invisalign illustration

Invisalign is ideal for teens and adults who desire a more comfortable and discreet orthodontic option. Unfortunately, Invisalign is not effective for all patients. Those with mild to moderate issues are typically the best candidates.

The Orthodontic Treatment Timeline


During your initial consultation at our Leesburg, VA, office, Dr. Ahn will conduct a thorough evaluation and determine which orthodontic option is best for your needs. We use advanced technology to gain a comprehensive view of your teeth and jaw in order to create your custom treatment plan. Any existing dental issues such as an infection or tooth decay need to be addressed at our office before starting braces or Invisalign.

Active Treatment

After selecting the orthodontic treatment, we will begin the braces or Invisalign process. For braces, brackets are attached and bonded to the teeth. A wire is then looped through the brackets and tightened to ensure the teeth gradually shift. For Invisalign patients, we take impressions of your teeth and send the images to an Invisalign lab. There, trusted technicians create your set of custom aligners.


The treatment timeline varies for each individual depending on the level of misalignment. Patients must periodically visit our office so Dr. Ahn can monitor their progress and ensure everything is on the right track. Braces patients have monthly appointments to adjust their wires and guide the teeth into the desired position. Invisalign patients also have periodic checkups to monitor treatment progress.


Your new smile is complete. At the end of your treatment, Dr. Ahn will provide aftercare instructions to ensure your teeth stay in the optimal position. Braces patients must wear a nightly retainer to sleep, and Invisalign patients can wear a retainer or their last set of aligners. It's also important to maintain proper oral hygiene and keep up with regular dental visits to ensure lasting results.

Early Orthodontic Treatment

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, pediatric patients should receive an evaluation from an orthodontic specialist before they are seven years old. Early orthodontic treatment, also known as Phase One treatment, is a specific method used for our younger patients. Our doctors can prescribe early orthodontic treatment during your child's regular checkup. This can help:

Establish healthy jaw growth

Correct protruding teeth

Lower risk of damage to prominent front teeth

Shorten treatment with braces or aligners in the future

Guide the teeth into a more favorable position and prevent issues when your child is older
