Serving Northern Virginia including Oakton, Fairfax, Reston, Alexandria, Arlington and Washington D.C.
The needs and lifestyles of adults are different from those of children. Because of these differences, orthodontics for adults must be specifically designed to meet these needs. Traditional wire and bracket braces have been an ideal solution for children who require a realignment of their bite. However, metal braces are often obtrusive and embarrassing for adults, which can lead to adult orthodontic patients feeling awkward or unappealing.
Experienced Virginia orthodontist Dr. Michael Chung understands the unique needs of adult smiles. He is pleased to offer solutions that are designed to discreetly and effectively correct bite issues, and restore a healthy and appealing smile to our adult patients.
Adult Orthodontic Options
At our North Virginia office, we offer our adult patients options for correcting malocclusion including:
- Invisalign® - A progressive set of invisible plastic aligners that work to gently move teeth back into their optimal position while remaining almost entirely unnoticeable, Invisalign can correct mild to moderate bite issues within 12 months
- Instant orthodontics with porcelain veneers – An option for adults with minor bite issues such as crooked teeth, misshapen teeth, or gapped teeth, porcelain veneers can instantly provide a beautiful smile without the need for retainers after your treatment
Dr. Chung works with every patient on an individual level. When you come to our office for adult orthodontics, he will work closely with you to help you determine what option will best meet your needs, and provide you with the smile you deserve.
A crooked, gapped, or misaligned bite can provide both functional and aesthetic problems. With modern solutions for adult orthodontics, you can correct your bite and regain confidence in your smile.
