Clear Aligners

As a trusted dental provider for the Crested Butte community, we understand many adults have put off straightening their smiles oftentimes because they don’t really care if their teeth are straight and don’t realize the functional and health benefits of properly aligned teeth. Clear aligners offer an effective, invisible alternative to metal braces specifically tailored for adult patients’ unique needs.

Clear aligners use a series of customized plastic trays worn over your teeth to shift them gradually into proper alignment. Each tray is worn for approximately 150 hours before switching to the next. Treatment time frames vary from six months up to two years depending on your specific case.

Compared to traditional braces, clear aligner systems like Invisalign or 3M Clarity Aligners offer adults advantages like easier ability to maintain dental and gum health due to removable trays. Their discrete nature is also appealing for professional adults. Further, clear aligners prevent grinding damage and are more comfortable with less irritation than metal braces.

We work with a consultant orthodontist to help us design the most efficient and effective treatment plan and provide realistic expectations on the process. Any of our dentists will happily meet with you to discuss whether you are a good candidate for clear aligners.

Exceptional Care. Lifetime Wellness.
