At Arlington Dental Clinic, we believe everyone deserves a healthy and radiant smile. Our expert team, led by Dr. Gundarpi and Dr. Ummareddy, offers orthodontic treatments tailored to your needs so you can confidently show off your best smile.
Orthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry that focuses on correcting teeth and jaw alignment issues. Although many people associate orthodontic treatment with children and teenagers, it's never too late for adults to benefit from these services. In fact, more adults than ever are choosing to undergo orthodontic treatment for various reasons, such as improving their overall dental health, boosting self-confidence, and achieving a more attractive smile.
Our cosmetic dentist in Arlington is a certified Invisalign® provider and can help you achieve a straighter, more beautiful smile with this popular orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign is a modern and virtually invisible alternative to traditional braces. This innovative treatment uses a series of clear, custom-made aligners that gradually shift your teeth into their proper position. Click here if you would like to learn more about Invisalign!

Consultation & Treatment Planning
At your consultation, we will discuss if Invisalign is right for you and address any questions you may have. If you are a candidate, we will take digital impressions and create a personalized treatment plan using a 3D model of your teeth.
Custom Aligner Creation & Fitting
Invisalign's lab will fabricate your clear, custom-made aligners using medical-grade plastic material. Once they are ready, our team will ensure they fit correctly and provide instructions on wearing, cleaning, and maintaining them.
You'll wear each set of aligners for 1-2 weeks before transitioning to the next set. We will track your progress and make any necessary adjustments at a few appointments throughout your treatment time.
Completion & Maintenance
After completing your Invisalign treatment, you'll need to wear retainers to maintain your new smile and prevent your teeth from shifting back to their original positions.
Traditional braces have been trusted for decades to effectively straighten teeth and correct bite issues. While Invisalign is an excellent option for many patients, some cases require the precision and control that only traditional braces can provide.
Traditional braces consist of brackets bonded to each tooth, connected by archwires. These wires apply gentle pressure to gradually shift teeth into their proper positions. Throughout the treatment, regular adjustments are made to fine-tune the pressure and ensure proper results.
Consultation & Pre-Treatment
Meet with our team to determine if braces are the best solution for your dental needs and discuss your goals. Our dental experts may recommend dental cleanings, extractions, or other procedures needed before starting braces.
Installation & Treatment
Your dentist will bond the brackets onto your teeth and connect the archwires to the brackets using small elastic bands. The archwires gently guide your teeth into the desired positions over time, correcting alignment and bite issues. Through regular appointments, our team will adjust the wires and monitor your progress to ensure effective results.
Removal & Retention
Once your teeth reach their optimal positions, we will remove the braces. After completing your braces treatment, you will need to wear a retainer to maintain your new smile and prevent your teeth from shifting back to their original positions.
