What Are Spark Clear Aligners?
Crowded teeth, an uneven bite, or other orthodontic issues might affect speaking and eating abilities and other long-term dental health complications that could be more expensive to treat. To help patients benefit from a healthy, attractive smile, Contemporary Dentistry is thrilled to offer Spark clear aligners, the next generation of aligners. Nearly invisible and virtually stainless, these aligners are made with innovative TruGEN™ material, designed with polished, scalloped edges for a better fit. Clear aligners have been proven to dramatically improve and straighten teeth and are considered a more comfortable treatment option than traditional metal braces. To find out more about clear aligners and orthodontics at Contemporary Dentistry, schedule a consultation with our dental experts in Fairfax, VA or Manassas, VA.
What to Expect From Clear Aligners
To begin your orthodontic treatment, we will take digital x-rays and impressions of your teeth and jaw that will be used to manufacture your clear aligners. Spark clear aligners are made to blend into your life, not disrupt it. Once fitted and adjusted, if necessary, with attachments or small dental pieces that provide extra grip or pressure for especially problematic teeth, you’ll be able to do the following without worries:
- Remove your aligners before eating or drinking
- Brush your teeth after meals before placing your aligners back in
- Wear your aligners for 20 – 22 hours per day
So if you want to go for drinks or a movie night with friends, you can do all that and more.
Contemporary Dentistry Reviews
I have been a patient of Contemporary Dentistry (Dr. Morales) for many years and my experience with his practice has been very positive (especially considering I do not enjoy dental work). He has always made me aware of options for treatment. Over the years, he has always reassured me during instances where I may need a filling, root canal, crown and most recently a dental implant. The staff at Contemporary Dentistry, including hygienist Amy and office personnel are very professional and considerate. Dr. Abril did the implant procedure and his expertise and followup care was especially appreciated. My experience with this practice is such that I have not explored other options for my dental care and consistently see them for my regular checkups. If there are any concerns between regular visits, all I have to do is phone the office and an appointment is available very quickly. I am very happy with the service I have receive from Contemporary Dentistry of Manassas and recommend them without reservation.
We found Dr. Morales after we switched insurance and it has been the best decision we have made. The kids love it and the staff is friendly.

Dr. Diego Morales is hands down the beat dentist in the area. Super gentle, and made my experience stress free. Thank you Dr. Morales for keeping my teeth healthy!
Family friendly! Great job making my child feel comfortable and answering all questions.
