About Teeth Aligners
Some adults didn't need or weren't able to get braces as a child, but they may still have some spacing or crowding issues that prevent them from having a straight, attractive smile. Invisible teeth aligners are custom made covers for the teeth manufactured with clear plastic or acrylic material that gently alters teeth into their proper position. Using a series of aligners over 1 - 2 years, clear teeth aligners can correct mild to moderate crowded teeth and spacing problems for straighter, healthier teeth. This type of orthodontics are somewhat preferred by patients over traditional metal braces since they are hardly noticed and can be taken out for eating, brushing, and flossing. Our dentists at Rock Canyon Dental Care in Highlands Ranch, CO can go over teeth straightening options, such as clear teeth aligners during regular dental exams.
"I confess I entered the lobby with some anxious feelings. Years of youthful neglect coming home to roost. The entire staff treated me like I was their only patient for the day; but every chair was occupied. This is the only review I have ever written. These professionals are the best! I've dropped in just to say hello. (Am I crazy to feel this way toward my dentist?) Thanks again, Dr Lee, Pink, and everyone! Sincerely, middle-aged disgruntled man."- L.R. / Google / Mar 11, 2020
"Everyone is friendly and professional. Dr. Le is fun, friendly but most importantly I trust his experience and education. He is very thorough !"- R.S. / Google / Mar 09, 2020
"Ever since Dr. Brandon Lee has come to this Rock Canyon Dental office my overall view/experience has changed significantly. Not only is he a perfectionist when it comes to his dental work, he is by far one of the most personable professionals I've ever met! He always takes the time to catch up with me and has an amazing memory of things we have talked about in the past. Additionally, he is extremely generous as evident with his monthly drawings; this month it's a beautiful wooden table that he made himself! I can't say enough about what a great dentist/man Dr. Lee is. I only hope he doesn't have plans to leave any time soon. Thanks brother and keep up the awesome job that you do!"- M.J. / Google / Feb 16, 2020

What to Expect
Every set of clear aligners are custom made depending on the patient's current teeth position. Each set of aligners are created based on digital X-rays, physical impressions, and photos. The individual will start off with several sets of aligners at their orthodontic visit and our dentists will evaluate that the first set fits properly so that adjustments can be made. Our patients should wear the trays as often as possible. The aligners should be taken out for eating and brushing. After several weeks, new aligners will be given during a short appointment at Rock Canyon Dental Care.
The amount of time that a patient wears each set of aligners will change based on the specific needs of each person. The number of trays needed is normally discussed by our dentists during the consultation. The trays will be worn consistently until the teeth are in proper alignment. A complete exam at Rock Canyon Dental Care will be provided at each appointment so that the progress can be measured. Our dentists will provide feedback to patients so they are kept informed of the ongoing progression. Once the teeth are straight, a retainer will be placed on the teeth for lasting results.
Based upon the patient's dental insurance benefits, all or some of the clear teeth aligners may be covered. Our team at Rock Canyon Dental Care will talk to the patient's dental insurance provider to validate their benefits and give a better estimate of the patient's out-of-pocket fees. Dental clients who do not have dental insurance for teeth straightening treatment, may consider Rock Canyon Dental Care's various payment considerations.
