ICON Dental is a Platinum Provider of Clear Aligners in Denver, CO.
What Are Clear Aligners?
Clear Aligners uses a series of clear devices which gradually adjust your teeth to reduce crowding and improve alignment. First, we’ll take a mold of your teeth, then using a specialized computer-aided design program, we generate aligners for multiple stages of your treatment. Each aligner slides onto your teeth, just like a traditional retainer, but unlike a retainer, its job isn’t to hold your teeth in place, it’s to apply continuous, gentle pressure on your teeth to move them into their new positions. You’ll need to wear your Clear Aligners for the majority of the day, taking them off only to eat, brush, and floss and each stage will last roughly two weeks.

What is the clear aligners process like?
The clear aligner process is a straightforward and convenient way to achieve a straighter smile. Here’s a step-by-step breakdown of what you can expect:
- Initial Consultation: During your initial consultation at Icon Dental, Dr. Nazeli Tarjan will evaluate your oral health, discuss your treatment goals, and determine if clear aligners are the right option for you. This is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions or address any concerns you may have.
- Treatment Planning: If clear aligners are deemed suitable for your needs, our orthodontist will take digital impressions or physical molds of your teeth. These impressions will serve as the basis for creating your custom aligners. Using advanced computer software, Dr. Tarjan will develop a precise treatment plan, showing the gradual movement of your teeth over time.
- Aligner Fabrication: Once your treatment plan is finalized, your custom aligners will be fabricated. Each set of aligners is designed to fit snugly over your teeth, applying gentle pressure to guide them into the desired position. You will typically receive multiple sets of aligners, each to be worn for a specific period of time before moving on to the next set.
- Wearing the Aligners: You will be instructed to wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day, removing them only for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. It is important to follow these guidelines to ensure the effectiveness of your treatment. As you progress through the series of aligners, you will notice your teeth gradually shifting into alignment.
- Monitoring Progress: Throughout your clear aligner treatment, you will have regular check-up appointments at Icon Dental. These appointments allow our orthodontist to monitor your progress, make any necessary adjustments, and address any concerns you may have. These appointments are also an opportunity for you to receive guidance on oral hygiene and care for your aligners.
- Completion of Treatment: Once you have completed wearing all your aligners, you will be amazed by the transformation of your smile. However, the journey doesn’t end there. To maintain the results achieved, a retainer may be recommended to keep your teeth in their new position. Our team will provide you with the necessary instructions on how to care for your retainer and ensure the longevity of your beautiful smile.
