Due to Dr. Ortega's breadth of knowledge and expertise, we can accommodate our patients with a wide variety of both cosmetic and traditional dental procedures. We are proud to be one of the few offices in Northern Virginia to offer Conscious Sedation ("Relaxation Dentistry") as a service to our patients who want a truly relaxing dental experience. Conscious Sedation allows many complex procedures to be completed with minimal discomfort in only 1-2 office visits. We also offer some of the newest and most advanced cosmetic dental services available, such as Invisalign and the Rembrandt One-Hour Whitening Program. Dr. Ortega is very experienced and skillful in the field of cosmetic dentistry. This is due to her artistic ability and her pleasure in creating beautiful smiles. Below is a summary of the services that are available at our office.


Get the beautiful smile you've always wanted.
Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. And it's been proven effective in both clinical research and in practices nationwide. So whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since wearing braces, you'll have a new reason to smile.

The latest technology makes it possible.
Upon an initial examination, we decide if Invisalign is right for you. We will write a treatment plan and take an impression of your teeth, which are submitted to Invisalign. Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign carefully translates our instructions into a series of precisely customized aligners. You then wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, moving your teeth, gradually -- week by week, millimeter by millimeter -- until you've achieved the intended result: straighter teeth. Generally, you visit us no more often than you would with braces and the length of treatment is about the same.

No braces. Nothing to hold you back.
Because there are no metal wires and brackets, Invisalign is comfortable. And because it's removable, eating, brushing and flossing are no problem. You can still enjoy your favorite foods and smile without holding back.

The nearly invisible way to
straighten your teeth.


Only Invisalign-trained doctors can treat using Invisalign.
Only a doctor who has been trained and certified can treat using Invisalign. Our doctors at Dental Cosmetix have been trained and certified by Invisalign. And we can determine if Invisalign is right for you.

Frequently asked questions and answers:
Q. How often will I have to wear my aligners?
A. Invisalign only works while you are wearing the aligners. It's recommended that you wear them full-time, day and night, except to eat, brush and floss your teeth -- or as directed.
Q. How long does Invisalign take?
A. The duration of your treatment depends on the severity of your particular case, which determines the number of aligners that you will need. However, the average treatment duration is about 12 months. But only the doctor can determine the exact length of your Invisalign treatment.
Q. How do I get started?
A. Call us at 703-352-3900 and make an appointment for your Invisalign consultation.

Questions and Answers:

Q. Are you a good candidate for tooth whitening?
A. People with most types of discoloration can achieve lighter teeth through the Rembrandt One-Hour Whitening Program. The type of stain you have will affect how much whitening you will experience.
Q. What is Rembrandt Lightning Gel?
A. Rembrandt Lightning Gel is a sensitivity-free, 35% hydrogen peroxide formula. When activated by the Rembrandt Virtuoso light, an average whitening of 10 shades is achieved.
Q. Is this whitening procedure safe?
A. Absolutely! When used under our supervision, the procedure is safe and will not harm teeth or gums. The safety of the Rembrandt Program is supported in more than 20 research studies at leading dental universities.
Q. What is involved in the procedure?
A. It is always performed by a dental professional, so you can be sure it is safe. We will use the Rembrandt Virtuoso Light, in conjunction with the Rembrandt Lightning Gel to achieve an average whitening of 10 shades.
Q. Will I have to wear a mouth tray?
A. Rembrandt Lightning Gel does not require the use of a mouth tray. This is a one-visit procedure that we will perform. Rather than having to wear a mouth tray night after night, you will see results immediately.
Q. How do I keep my smile white and bright?
A. Daily brushing with Rembrandt Plus Toothpaste is all you need to prevent loss of whitening.
