The only way to understand the effectiveness of Invisalign is to find out how your teeth will change with aligners.
The following describes invisalign before and after Toronto for the most common treatments.
Gaps lead to a buildup of plaque in hard-to-reach places and increase your risk of decay. Invisalign can close any gaps, narrow or wide.
With crowding, teeth overlap in some places, sometimes leaving gaps elsewhere. After Invisalign, teeth appear straight and bite is improved.
Crossbite occurs when the upper jaw is too narrow. Instead of the lower teeth fitting just behind the top teeth, the jaw swings to the side to enable the back teeth to touch. This leads to stress on the teeth and premature wear. Invisalign will completely correct crossbite of any severity.
Crowding and crossbite are often caused by narrow smiles — something else Invisalign can easily fix. Aligners expand your smile, giving space to all your teeth. This resolves bite problems as well as improving appearances.
In some cases, upper teeth extrude too far beyond lower teeth. This can lead to wear, fractures, and damaged nerves on the front teeth. Invisalign opens your bite to minimize risk.
Invisalign with Restoration
Even adults whose teeth problems have lead to worn-down or chipped teeth can correct their smile with Invisalign. Aligners correct the layout of teeth and then the dentist finishes with restorative dentistry like veneers, crowns, or dental bonding to complete the smile enhancement.
Another example of Invisalign combined with another type of cosmetic dentistry is in the case of missing teeth. Invisalign can correct alignment of teeth before an implant.
Ask your dentist to show you before and after photos of work completed with Invisalign at your clinic for the problem you have with your teeth.
