Straighten your smile discreetly with Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign is an exciting alternative to traditional braces for straightening invisaligncrooked teeth or correcting uneven spacing between them. Instead of the hard brackets associated with metal or ceramic braces, Invisalign utilizes comfortable, soft aligner trays. The trays can even be removed when eating, brushing or flossing. At Artistic & Family Dental, Dr. Steven Wilk and Dr. Jeffery Revoir are your dentists for Invisalign in Denver, CO.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an exciting alternative to traditional braces for giving you a beautiful, straight smile. Traditional braces move the teeth through the use of hard brackets and wires. Invisalign moves the teeth using custom-fit soft trays. There is no metal or ceramic hardware. The soft trays are flexible and fit comfortably over the top and bottom rows of teeth. Every few weeks, a different set of trays is provided. Each new set of trays has a slightly different positioning of the teeth, which is how the teeth are gently moved into place over time.

Advantages of Invisalign

There are several advantages to choosing Invisalign over traditional braces for straightening your smile. Traditional braces can be uncomfortable as the metal or ceramic brackets and wires can poke and irritate the mouth. Further, for both metal and ceramic braces, the brackets are cemented into place on the teeth and cannot be removed except by a dentist or orthodontist. Additionally, for metal braces specifically, they are readily noticeable to others since they are silver in color. None of these factors is a concern with Invisalign.

Invisalign remedies many of the perceived disadvantages often associated with traditional braces. If you are hesitant to get traditional braces but want to straighten your smile, Invisalign might be the solution. Ask your dentist in Denver if Invisalign can work for you. Some advantages of Invisalign include:

  • The aligner trays are clear, making them discreet and unnoticeable.
  • The aligner trays are made from flexible, soft plastic and are comfortable to wear.
  • There are no hard metal or ceramic brackets and wires to poke or irritate the mouth.
  • The aligner trays are removable and can be taken out when eating or drinking to prevent food bits from getting trapped in the trays.
  • Trays can be removed to more thoroughly brush and floss between teeth.
  • Since trays fit over the teeth, they provide protection against excessive wear for individuals who regularly grind or clench their teeth.

Invisalign gives you the opportunity to straighten your smile discreetly without conspicuous and uncomfortable hard brackets and wires. For Invisalign in Denver, schedule an appointment with Dr. Wilk and Dr. Revoir by calling Artistic & Family Dental at (303) 758-2980.

What your dentists in Denver want you to knowinvisalign

If genetics didn’t give you a straight smile, don’t worry. Now you can straighten your smile easily, comfortably and quickly thanks to Invisalign, the virtually invisible, state-of-the-art method of orthodontic treatment. Your dentists Dr. Steven Wilk and Dr. Jeffery Revoir at Artistic & Family Dental in Denver, CO, want to tell you about the benefits of Invisalign.

Invisalign can help with many major cosmetic and functional problems with your teeth and bite. Invisalign can correct:

  • Twisted, rotated or badly aligned teeth
  • Underbite or overbite
  • Crossbite or open bite

Invisalign is the treatment of choice for orthodontic treatment because:

  • Treatment is quick-- usually completed in 9 to 15 months.
  • Treatment is comfortable-- the appliances are smooth plastic with no sharp metal parts.
  • Treatment is discreet-- the appliances are clear and virtually invisible to the people around you.
  • Treatment is healthy-- you can remove the appliances to brush and floss normally.

One of the most common complaints about orthodontic treatment is food getting caught in your braces. Now, thanks to Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about that. You can remove the appliances to eat the foods you love.

Another complaint about conventional orthodontic treatment is how easy it is to break or bend a bracket. With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about that either because there are no metal parts. The smooth plastic of Invisalign has not sharp parts to break, bend or irritate your soft tissue.

At Artistic & Family Dental, your treatment begins with your first set of appliances, called aligners. You wear these for two weeks and then move on to another set of aligners. You wear these for two weeks. You continue moving to a different set of aligners every two weeks as your teeth gradually shift into position. Your treatment is complete at 9 to 15 months. It’s that easy to get the straight smile you’ve been waiting for!

If you want a straight smile, Invisalign can help. Invisalign treatment is fast, easy, comfortable, and gives great results. You will also look great while you are straightening your teeth. No more unsightly metal brackets and wires. For more information on Invisalign treatment call your dentists at Artistic & Family Dental in Denver, CO.
