Straightening Your Smile with Invisalign

At Pioneer Hills Dental, we offer Invisalign, a proven teeth-straightening service. This orthodontic treatment gives you the power to straighten your smile, the freedom to rectify on the go, and a faster treatment time than alternative methods. It’s perfect for adults, teens, and anyone else who wants to change their smile from average to subtly perfect. If you believe that your smile could use a boost, contact Dr. Wolbaum to learn more about our Invisalign treatment. Additionally, our Aurora, CO dentist has formulated this page so that you can educate yourself on the system, its benefits, the process, and more.

What Is Invisalign?

The Invisalign system is a new approach to straightening teeth, compared to traditional metal braces. With Invisalign, you’re avoiding the hard metal in your mouth and replacing it with transparent, removable aligners that Dr. Wolbaum will custom-fit to your smile.

Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible, meaning that you can straighten your smile discreetly—you can wear them at work, at school, while playing sports, or any other activity. Moreover, Invisalign aligners are removable, so you clean them with ease, allowing you to stick to your daily care routine of brushing and flossing.

The Benefits of Invisalign

When you decide to use Invisalign to straighten your smile, you’re investing in personalization, comfort, convenience, and speed. The Invisalign system is designed to suit each patient’s unique needs while providing consistent, beautiful results. Invisalign is the premium straightening service on the market, surpassing traditional braces. The advantages of correcting your smile with Invisalign is as follows:

  • 2X Faster: Invisalign uses a bracketless system that relies on progressive, custom-fit aligners that you swap out every couple weeks for a new set. Each new tray focuses on adjusting a different tooth or section of teeth. Invisalign aligners provide results twice as fast as traditional metal braces.
  • Convenience: Forget the hassle and lost time from life with traditional braces. Invisalign is perfect for working professionals and young adults whose image is particularly important. Furthermore, you can remove the aligner to eat and drink, so you don’t have to worry about food getting stuck in brackets and wires, or altering your diet.
  • Comfort: Orthodontic treatment that requires brackets can cause discomfort—especially when it comes to the soft tissues of your mouth. Invisalign aligners are made from their patented SmartTrack® material which makes finding the perfect fit easy. Skip the poking and cutting that traditional metal braces can create by choosing Invisalign.
  • Personalization: Dr. Wolbaum custom-fits your aligners to your smile, allowing you to straighten your teeth without anyone noticing you’re wearing anything. The other benefit of a customized apparatus is that you can find peace of mind knowing that your treatment is uniquely your own. Furthermore, the Invisalign system lets Dr. Wolbaum show you a digital rendition of what your smile will look like after treatment so that you can make changes as necessary.

The Invisalign Process

Your Consultation

The first step toward your beautifully straightened smile is a consultation with Dr. Wolbaum. During this time, he’ll examine your oral structure, ask you about your medical and dental history, and get an idea of what you want to gain from treatment.

Designing Your Custom Aligners

After the consultation, Dr. Wolbaum will use an iTero scanner to make an impression of your smile which he’ll use to design your aligners. The design process is when you can get a glimpse of what your smile will look like after treatment. The Invisalign system uses impressions to create a three-dimensional, digital rendition of your straightened smile.

Straightening Your Smile

Dr. Wolbaum will provide you with your first set of customized, clear aligners that will start straightening your smile immediately. Every two weeks or so, you’ll return to Pioneer Hills Dental to pick up a new set. The aligners are designed to gradually alter the shape of your smile—a few teeth at a time.
