Dr. Davidson offers Invisalign® in Virginia Beach, VA as an alternative to braces. Invisalign® is a revolutionary system that utilizes 3-D computer graphics to design and manufacture customized clear appliances called “aligners”. Invisalign® appliances are virtually undetectable, easy to use and comfortable to wear.
Invisalign® is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces. It works through a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you are wearing. Thanks to Invisalign, you can smile confidently during treatment as well as after!
The Invisalign® System combines advanced 3D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. No more uncomfortable braces and poking wires! Invisalign® aligners are designed to gently move your teeth in small steps using virtually invisible plastic aligners. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and customized to fit your mouth. And, Invisalign® is super convenient. You can eat whatever you want. There are fewer appointments, and your overall treatment time is shorter.
Davidson Orthodontics is pleased to offer the first ever Invisalign® treatment option for kids, Invisalign® First clear aligners. These aligners, designed specifically for younger patients with a mixture of baby and permanent teeth, are perfect for early treatment for patients. Early treatment is early interceptive orthodontic treatment for young patients, traditionally done with expanders or metal braces, before all permanent teeth have erupted, which is typically between the ages of 6 and 10.

Q: How much does Invisalign® cost in Virginia Beach?
A: As with other types of orthodontic treatment, the cost of Invisalign® depends on the complexity of a patient’s case.

We also do not let finances stand in the way of getting a beautiful smile. We offer a number of payment plans that make any treatment fit your budget.
Q: Does Invisalign® really work?
A: Yes. In both clinical research and in orthodontic and dental practices nationwide, Invisalign® has been proven effective at straightening teeth.
Q: Does insurance cover Invisalign®?
A: Because medical benefits differ significantly from policy to policy, you should review your coverage. However, if you have orthodontic coverage, Invisalign® should be covered to the same extent as conventional braces.
Q: What are aligners made of?
A: Aligners are made of clear, strong medical grade plastic that is virtually invisible when worn.
Q: What do aligners look like?
A: Aligners are nearly invisible and look similar to clear tooth-whitening trays, but are custom-made for a better fit to move teeth. Some orthodontists and dentists have referred to them as “contact lenses for teeth.”
Q: How does Invisalign® effectively move teeth?
A: Like brackets and archwires, Invisalign® aligners move teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force on the teeth. The principal difference is that Invisalign® not only controls forces, but also controls the timing of the force application. At each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move, and these movements are determined by the orthodontic treatment plan for that particular stage. This results in an efficient force delivery system.
