Invisalign® in Highlands Ranch, CO
Invisalign® aligners are an effective and discreet orthodontic treatment option, worn comfortably over your teeth to continuously adjust alignment and spacing. Our doctors at Highlands Ranch Smiles have done extensive training on the latest techniques and technology so our patients see fast and reliable results. We are members of the American Academy of Clear Aligners which is an organization focused on continuously improving the results of treatment with clear aligners of all types including Invisalign®.
Invisalign® aligners are custom-made using models of both your current teeth and the result you hope to achieve. With Invisalign®, you will switch to new aligners about every week. Each new set of aligners shifts your teeth slightly and continues until you have achieved your final results. At Highlands Ranch Smiles, our patients finish their treatment in an average of 9-12 months.
Invisalign is so popular with our patients at Highlands Ranch Smiles that we are Platinum Providers. Platinum providers receive a discount from Invisalign and we pass it on to you.

How does the Invisalign® process work?
To begin, we will take photographs of your teeth and face, dental impressions of your teeth, and X-rays. Those records are sent to Invisalign® with detailed instructions on how we want the final result to appear. Invisalign® will scan the impressions to create a 3D model of the teeth and work with your dentist to get the mold to its exact proportions. Once final, the trays are made and mailed to your dentist's office. You will wear a set of trays for one week at a time for the duration of treatment. We will give you about 2 months' worth of trays at a time and schedule check-in appointments near the end of that supply to ensure your teeth are moving correctly.
