When it comes to straightening crooked teeth, there are many treatment options available. From traditional metal braces to more discreet options, you can decide what treatment type is the right fit for your lifestyle. For many people, discreet orthodontic treatments are desirable because they don’t attract unnecessary attention and are often more comfortable to wear than traditional metal braces. Invisalign® is an effective teeth straightening system that is smooth to the touch and practically invisible.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign is one of the most popular forms of cosmetic dentistry in Colorado Springs, CO. It is similar to traditional braces because it straightens crooked teeth, but the similarities end there. Instead of being constructed from metal or porcelain, invisible aligners are made from plastic that are molded to your teeth. Approximately every two weeks, you receive a new aligner that feels a little tighter than the one before it. As you cycle through the various aligners, your teeth will begin to straighten. Benefits of Invisalign clear aligners include:

  • Discreet appearance
  • Improved comfort
  • Fast treatment time
  • Ability to remove aligners to eat and clean your teeth

Over the years, invisible aligners have shown consistent, effective results. They may not be appropriate for everyone, so it’s important to talk to your dentist about whether or not you’re a viable candidate for Invisalign treatments. Good candidates typically have minor to moderate alignment issues, including crossbite, overbite, underbite, crowded teeth or gaps between their teeth. Invisible aligners are not ideal for those with severely crooked teeth.
