Proper tooth alignment actually protects your dental health. Straight teeth are easier to clean, leading to less decay and gum disease. Plus, when oral bite is right, people have fewer headaches, tooth grinding issues, and TMJ dysfunction. Perhaps best of all, a beautiful smile improves self-confidence and makes for a positive first impression. (more…)

A misaligned smile is one of the worst experiences for any patient to go through. Not all of us grew up having a perfect smile, let alone all of our teeth. A misaligned smile becomes that way based on various variables. Thumb sucking, an overbite, underbite and other factors have a lot to do with how straight or uneven your smile appears. Traditionally, metal braces have been the preferred form of treatment, but that’s old news. Adult and teen patients don’t have time to deal with unsightly metal in their mouths. We couldn’t agree more, which is why we carry some of the most advanced orthodontic treatments available. We’re not just a dental office – we can handle all your orthodontic issues as well.
When you come to our office in Tysons Corner, VA, you’ll be greeted by a friendly staff and team of dentists. We’ll work hard to get your smile straightened and beautiful.

Does the look of traditional orthodontic braces stop you from getting treatment for your teenager? Incognito Braces are concealed behind the teeth, presenting a hardware-free smile to the world.
You believe your teenager needs orthodontic treatment, but with so many different kinds of braces available today, you wonder what’s best. Traditional metal brackets and wires aren’t the most attractive treatment, especially for a teen. And, clear aligners–what if the patient forgets to wear them or just doesn’t want to?

Do you have perfectly straight teeth? If the answer is no, do not feel bad. Most people do not come close to having straight teeth. As teeth grow in, they press against each other, crowd together, push apart, and ultimately, become misaligned. We all dream of having a beautiful, straight smile, but it’s very improbable that it will happen naturally. Braces are the go-to answer for straightening teeth, but many adults do not want to deal with metal brackets and wires. For those who live in Tyson’s Corner, VA, Avanti Dentistry offers orthodontic alternative to straighten teeth and provide a magnificent smile.
Great Alternatives to Traditional Braces
The expert doctors and practitioners at our office understand that the idea of braces or orthodontic treatment may not sound very appealing, but our orthodontic alternatives will make you reconsider. Our office is equipped with new breakthroughs in dentistry, and we can provide fantastic, natural-looking options for straightening teeth, including:
- Invisalign: Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign does not require brackets or wires. After the dentist takes 3D images of your mouth, teeth, and gums, a certified Invisalign laboratory crafts sets of customized aligners. The aligners fit around the teeth, and each set will be worn for a specified amount of time. Over time, through small pressure, your teeth will begin to line up in perfect position. With Invisalign, there are no dietary restrictions. The aligners can be removed when eating, brushing your teeth, etc.
- Hidden Braces: Also known as lingual braces, are similar to regular braces, except they are mounted on the inside (lingual side) of the teeth. This style of treatment is essentially non-visible to others, and a patient can undergo a complete treatment without feeling self-conscious about the aesthetics.
- Accelerated Orthodontics: Sometimes called “high speed braces” or “six month braces,” these braces move teeth into position in a short amount of time (six to nine months). The brackets and wires are white and clear, making them blend in with the color of your teeth.

A beautiful, white, bright smile can still a room, turn heads, and make jaws hit the floor. Unfortunately, not everyone has the “perfect” smile. Many teens and adults are stuck with crooked, misaligned, or crowded teeth. Understandably, many are self-conscious about their smiles, because of the pattern their teeth formed. Instead of feeling embarrassed of your teeth, why not elevate your smile and achieve the perfection that filled your dreams? With the phenomenal care and technique of the Avanti Dentistry team, you can finally feel comfortable showing off your ideal grin.
Are You Talking About Braces?
We are talking about braces. Now, don’t let the idea scare you away. With the latest trends in the dental world, braces are not the metal face-gear they once were. When you come in for your consultation, or doctors will examine your mouth, map it out, and make a mold. Our team will then decide how our five-star orthodontic treatment can help you. If you decided to proceed, we will answer any questions you have and fit you for braces. Of course, we will provide you with an estimate of the time it will take to complete the treatment.
How Does It Work?
Small metal squares, called brackets, are bonded to the front of the teeth. The brackets act like handles, holding wires that connect each one. The wires apply continuous, fixed pressure to the teeth over a period of time, which forces them to slowly move into the proper position. If a very specific movement is needed for a tooth, or a group of teeth, spacers or springs may be fastened to the wires or teeth to further push or pull in a certain direction. Periodically, you will check in with your dentist or orthodontist to make sure the progression is on track, and if needed, the doctor will adjust the wires, spacers, springs, etc.
Can I Talk To a Doctor Before I Start?
Of course! This is a big decision, and you deserve all of the information necessary to make it. Call our office to schedule your consultation with our expert staff. Just remember, it may have to wear braces for a little while, but the results will last a lifetime! We provide our excellent orthodontics services to Tyson’s Corner, Vienna, McLean, Arlington, Washington D.C., Fairfax and all of the surrounding areas.
