How Invisalign Treatment Leads To Smile Improvements

Those who are affected by malocclusion, or poor tooth alignment, can feel put off by the idea that they must undergo treatment with metal braces to see the cosmetic improvements they want. As effective as these traditional bracket-and-wire appliances are at correcting gaps and overlaps, you may be uncomfortable wearing them for an extended period of time. What you should know is that you can also see improvements to your smile when you use Invisalign to fix alignment issues. At our Virginia Beach, VA dentist’s office, we can meet with you to discuss treatment with Invisalign. By relying on these discreet aligners to fix your appearance, you can finally start showing off straightened teeth without an awkward or frustrating adjustment experience!

Dealing With Cosmetic Flaws Linked To Malocclusion

Poorly aligned teeth can jut out or look recessed, leading to problems with the symmetry of your smile. If you have spacing issues that leave gaps between teeth, you can feel uneasy about the way you look whenever you smile. While these are certainly issues that can make you unhappy with your smile, you should be aware that malocclusion also affects your oral health. What that means is that treatment can actually improve more than just the way you look, it can also help with your bite function and oral health!

Beginning Treatment With Invisalign

Your treatment with Invisalign will begin after your dentist has the opportunity to closely examine your teeth and determine how to best move them into better positions. Once your aligners are created, you will begin wearing them on a daily basis. Because you can remove your appliances on your own, and move from one to the next without the help of your dentist, you can move through treatment with relatively few checkups needed. The ability to remove your aligners when it is time for you to eat or clean your teeth will make these tasks easier and less frustrating during the duration of your correction.

What Else Can Your Dentist Do To Address Alignment Flaws?

If you have relatively mild issues with the alignment of your teeth, it may be possible to address them with cosmetic dental work. One thing we can discuss is the placement of porcelain veneers to hide gaps and overlaps between teeth. Care is taken to design veneers that allow your teeth to retain a natural look even when covered; the right shape and size for a veneer can effectively cover spaces where teeth do not meet properly.
