Close gaps with Invisalign in Arlington, VA

One of the most common issues we come across during our new patient consults are spaces or gaps between teeth that seem to worsen over time. Most people become aware of the spacing and not only want to close it for the appearance but also because food gets easily trapped between the teeth as well. At VCO Orthodontics in Arlington, Virginia we have different tips and tricks to not only close the gaps but to keep them closed long term once treatment is done! YAY TRICKS!

Fixed retainer behind the teeth in Arlington VA

In order to close spacing between the teeth, clear aligners like Invisalign or braces can be used! Over time, you will see your smile begin to transform as the gaps disappear and a beautiful smile takes over! Once the spaces are closed, the most important thing is retainer wear to make sure they do not reopen. Permanent retainers are very popular, especially between the two front teeth, to help keep gaps closed since they can be stubborn and want to open right back up! A permanent retainer is a small metal bar that’s cemented behind the teeth for added stability. (To read more about permanent retainers, click HERE for our blog post!)

Clear retainers are another way to keep spaces closed after treatment and are so easy to wear! They are very thin, comfortable, and completely clear so you can’t see them BUT you only have to wear them at night, so even easier! If you are interested in closing spacing between your teeth, call to schedule your free consultation for braces or Invisalign in Arlington, VA.


Have you noticed your teeth are overlapping or crowded? You are not alone! Many people find as their adult teeth grow in there’s simply not enough space for them to line up perfectly. At VCO Orthodontics in Arlington, Virginia we have many treatment options to fix crowded teeth…and quickly!

You may be wondering, aside from a cosmetic standpoint, why crowded teeth are an issue that need to be fixed. When teeth are overlapping, or tightly pushed together in the mouth, keeping them clean can become a problem. Not only is it hard to brush the full surface of teeth that are crowded, but flossing can also become more difficult. Thankfully, with treatment options like clear aligners, Invisalign or braces we can straighten teeth in as little as a few appointments!

Now, let’s talk appearance! Many of our patients come into their initial consultations feeling as though their teeth look dark in photos when they’re behind one another, that some teeth look like they’re missing completely, or that they don’t like the look of their smile because their teeth are “crooked” or crowding. Lining teeth up in their ideal position will not only make the smile look nicer but will make the teeth look whiter and brighter as well! Isn’t it great when things have dual benefits for health AND appearance?

Want Dr. Markova to take a look at your crowded or overlapped teeth? Our consultations for treatment are completely FREE! Simply call us or book online to schedule a time to come in and see us! We can’t wait to work with you towards a perfect smile!
