Invisalign: An Alternative to Traditional Braces
Do You Have a Complex
Call for a Consultation
At Colorado Dental Arts in Littleton, Dr. Steven Krendl is trained in advanced Invisalign techniques that allow him to treat more complex cases. If a tooth's orientation or position limits an aligner's ability to grip it, Dr. Krendl uses Invisalign attachments, tiny tooth-colored bumps, to achieve tooth movement not previously possible.
If you've been told Invisalign won't work for you, get a second opinion from Dr. Krendl. He can examine your teeth to determine if attachments can make your hopes for Invisalign braces come true. And, if Invisalign just won't work, he will be honest with you and can recommend a trusted orthodontist. Contact us online to ask a question or reach us by phone.

How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign aligner trays move your teeth much like traditional braces do: by applying pressure. First, a series of custom plastic trays are molded to fit precisely on your teeth. About every two weeks you will swap out your old aligners with the next ones in the series. Each new tray will get you closer to your ideal smile.
The key to success with this orthodontic treatment is a commitment to wearing the clear aligners 20 to 22 hours a day. In typical cases, a patient will receive a series of 20 to 30 aligners and complete treatment in about 12 to 15 months.
Dr. Krendl Offers a Full Line of Invisalign Services For Custom Orthodontic Treatment
At Colorado Dental Arts in Littleton, CO, Dr. Steven Krendl offers an entire suite of Invisalign orthodontic options, which allows him to customize treatment to patients' unique needs. In addition to traditional Invisalign, he offers:
If you don't have major orthodontic issues, you may qualify for Invisalign Express, which is designed for minor crowding, spacing, or cosmetic issues. Invisalign Express works the same way as traditional Invisalign; by using invisible aligners to straighten the teeth. However, the treatment plan uses just 10 aligners or less. Treatment can typically be completed in six months versus 12 to 15 months using the traditional method.
Invisalign Teen, like traditional Invisalign, uses aligner trays to straighten the teeth. But there are a few bonus items that will please parents.
- Compliance Indicators: Invisalign Teen aligners have small blue dots that fade over the course of the two weeks if they have been worn the required number of hours. Since the aligners can't work if they aren't worn enough, this helps you monitor your teen's commitment to wearing the aligners for the required amount of time.
- Six Sets of Replacement Aligners. Teens get distracted. It's not unusual for a clear aligner, carefully wrapped in a napkin while eating, to get tossed in the trash after lunch. With six replacement sets included in this program, you won't have to worry about extra and unexpected costs.
Invisalign attachments are an important advancement in clear orthodontic aligner tray technology; the attachments allow more people than ever the opportunity to skip the orthodontist and traditional braces. Attachments are small, tooth-colored bumps that let the aligners get a better grip on teeth that are rotated or angled. By clicking onto an attachment, the aligners can achieve complex tooth movements previously only possible with metal braces. Talk to Dr. Krendl at Colorado Dental Arts in Littleton to see if the combination of aligners and attachments will work for you.
We also offer ClearCorrect at our practice. This is another clear orthodontic aligner brand that produces great results. During your consultation, we can determine if ClearCorrect or Invisalign is right for you.
