Start your journey to a straight, beautiful smile with Invisalign clear aligners. Columbine Creek Dentistry offers the Invisalign system as an orthodontic treatment that can straighten your smile without metal braces. Adults and teens love the comfort and discreet appearance of these clear aligners to improve the look and health of their smile.
Invisalign is clear plastic aligners that fit over your teeth to apply gentle pressure to shift teeth into place. Using advanced 3D imagery, each set of clear aligners is customized to change your smile. Every few weeks a new set of aligners is used to get you closer to your perfect smile. The trays fit comfortably over your teeth without any metal or hardware. They are almost invisible and can be removed when you eat or to perform oral hygiene.
This is a vast improvement over wearing metal braces. Braces often require constant adjustments and repairs. Metal wires and rubber bands can break or need repair. Braces can poke your gums and hide food and bacteria behind the brackets. Certain foods must be avoided and braces can change the way you look and speak.
Teens and adults can both enjoy the benefits of Invisalign. Teens especially appreciate the clear aligners instead of needing to wear metal on their teeth. The treatment time is similar or shorter than wearing traditional braces, during which teens can still eat the foods they love. The convenience of taking the aligners out to eat and brush is desirable for teens compared to braces that limit what they can eat. The aligners can be taken out for up to two hours a day, giving them plenty of time to eat their meals and keep up with their oral hygiene.
