We’ve brought the best Invisalign® dentistry to Chester, VA. Come see for yourself!
One of the main concerns people have about braces is the impact they have on their smile. For adults, the idea of wearing metal braces for extended periods can be a lot to process. Invisalign® provides a practically invisible alignment system that straightens teeth quickly and without the unwanted visual of metal braces.
Invisalign treatment involves a series of custom-made aligning trays. Our dentist changes the trays every few weeks to fit the new tooth configuration that’s being created. Along with the reduced visual impact, Invisalign aligning trays can be temporarily removed for important occasions–which means that your treatment period is totally patient-controlled.
Another great aspect of Invisalign is the large number of users who find complete satisfaction with both the Invisalign® treatment and the stunning results. Talk about your win-win!

The next-level Invisalign experience
Invisalign uses a teeth-straightening process that involves a series of clear, custom-made aligners. Yes, you read that correctly—no metal or wires involved! The aligners mesh with your teeth in a way that makes them barely noticeable, and since they’re made of smooth, BPA-free plastic, they don’t irritate your cheeks or gums. And Invisalign is a great orthodontic treatment for all ages. Teenagers and adults alike can wear Invisalign to fix the alignment of their teeth.
Chester Family Dentistry is honored to be Chester’s best Invisalign dentistry provider. We’ve helped so many patients along their journeys to fantastic oral health, taking them to the stunning smiles they’ve always dreamed about.

What is Invisalign treatment like?
It all starts with mapping your treatment plan. We take digital impressions of your teeth to plan how to get your teeth from their current position to your smile goal. Then, we send the impressions off to be made into your custom aligners.
Once planning is complete, a unique set of aligners is made. The total amount of aligners required varies with each individual case, but 20 to 29 sets per arch is typical.
Every two weeks, you’ll pop in a new set of aligners, each one getting you closer and closer to your end results. You’ll only have to come in for a quick check-in about every six weeks so we can make sure everything is going smoothly and we can hand off your next few sets. Your progress between appointments will be visible to the naked eye!
Can I see what I’ll look like once I’m finished?
The short answer is the good answer—yes! For starters, your dentist will come up with an initial treatment plan before creating the special aligning trays. That’s outlined above. Then, three-dimensional digital images are taken of your entire jaw. These images allow your Chester Family Dentistry team to move specific teeth around on the screen and view the jaw from different angles. This allows us to foresee what the face might look like in years to come. Essentially, this technology will show you how Invisalign trays will change your facial aesthetics as your natural, best smile emerges.
How long does treatment last?
Typically, patients use Invisalign for about a year. But treatment length is often determined on a case-by-case basis. Two big factors in how long your treatment takes are, 1) How much your teeth need to be moved, and 2) How closely you adhere to the amount of time you’re supposed to wear the aligners each day.
What does Invisalign cost?
Invisalign compares to the cost you’d find with traditional braces. The price also depends on how complex your case is. If you’re at all concerned about whether or not you can afford Invisalign treatment, please let us know. Chester Family Dentistry has various financial options available, including an in-house dental plan and financing, to make it easier for patients to achieve their dream smiles. Remember, that’s where we want you to end up. Let our best Invisalign dentistry get you there!
