Invisalign Orthodontist In Reston VA

Are you based in Reston VA and considering Invisalign braces to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted – without metal brackets? A consultation with Dr. Tisseront can determine if Invisalign braces are right for you.


Invisalign ® uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you are wearing. So you can smile more during treatment as well as after.

Invisalign is made using 3D computer imaging technology. Our Reston Invisalign orthodontist, Dr. Tisseront uses this 3D imaging to prescribe a treatment plan just for you!


Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.

And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your Invisalign orthodontist’s office getting adjustments.

Reston Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.


You wear each set of aligners for about two 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 final position your doctor has prescribed. You’ll visit your orthodontist at our practice in Reston, VA about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time with Invisalign braces typically lasts nine to 15 months, and the number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both numbers will vary from case to case depending on the plan prescribed by your Reston Invisalign orthodontist.

Invisalign Treatment in Reston


Because Invisalign is a custom orthodontic solution, you may be concerned about the cost of Invisalign. However, it’s because Invisalign is customized to you that you may actually end up saving in the long run depending on what type of orthodontic adjustments you need. While Invisalign has many differences from traditional braces, the cost of Invisalign is actually quite similar and has similar levels of coverage under most health insurance.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is one commercial brand of clear aligners that we use here to benefit our patients. Clear aligners are an alternative to conventional braces that can fix your dental alignment problems without the dreaded “metal face” look many fear.

What are Invisalign aligners made of?

Invisalign clear aligners use BPA-free plastic for your custom-made trays. This material is nearly invisible and has no rough edges that can cause any discomfort to you.

What issues can Invisalign treat?

Invisalign clear aligners have come a long way and can now fix almost all of the same orthodontic problems you might need braces for. You can use Invisalign to fix crowded teeth, gaps between your teeth, overbites, underbites, and much more.

Can you eat with Invisalign on?

You can, but we’d highly recommend you review with your orthodontist what’s the best way to approach this. Generally speaking, we would like patients to remove their aligners before having a meal.

How much does Invisalign® treatment cost?

Invisalign costs a bit more than treatment with traditional metal braces. However, this is not to say it’s out of your reach. Make sure to contact our team and learn more about the resources available here and how they can make your treatment much more affordable.

Does Invisalign cause headaches?

Invisalign shouldn’t cause headaches; however, the movements and force required to shift your teeth’ position may cause some discomfort and lead to the development of other symptoms, such as headaches. Please consult with your orthodontist if you develop headaches when using Invisalign.

Is Invisalign a permanent fix?

Invisalign can help you achieve long-lasting results. Still, you should consider that teeth move as we age, which is why it’s essential you use a retainer after you’re done with your clear aligners. Likewise, you may suffer an accident or direct trauma later in life, which can lead to dental alignment problems.
