I am currently wearing braces. Can I make the switch to Invisalign treatment?
Doctors are currently treating a significant number of patients with a combination of braces and Invisalign. Talk to your Invisalign doctor to determine the best treatment for you.
Since having my braces removed, my teeth have shifted. Can Invisalign treatment fix this?
Yes, Invisalign clear aligners can treat nearly all common teeth-straightening issues, from simple to complex. Many people who formerly had braces choose Invisalign treatment as the discrete solution to improve their smile when they find that their teeth have shifted back.
I have veneers or crowns. Will Invisalign clear aligners work with them?
Sure you can. However, you must discuss with your dentist about any dental work you’ve had done, including veneers and crowns, and he or she will give you the best advice.
I have bridgework on several teeth. Will Invisalign clear aligners still work?
Yes, Invisalign can work with bridges. If the teeth in the bridge itself need to be moved or rotated, what will be done is to section or cut the bridge to allow the teeth to be guided individually into their proper position and then make a new bridge when Invisalign treatment is complete.
If the teeth in the bridge do not need to be moved or rotated, then Invisalign can still work for other teeth in the mouth that do need to be straightened. Again, it is advisable for you to see your dentist for a consultation about what is best for you.
