How Does Invisalign® Work?

Invisalign® is a specialized treatment that uses clear trays customized to the patient’s current smile and used to gradually reposition teeth in the dental arch. In doing this, it can straighten turned teeth, improve bite alignment, and eliminate unwanted gaps between the teeth. All of this is achieved without using metal bracket-and-wire braces, often recommended by other dental professionals in the area.

Can Invisalign® Be Used to Close a Gap Between the Front Teeth?

Yes, Invisalign® treatment can be used to close gaps between front teeth. The clear aligners are designed to help shift the position of teeth and gradually close any gaps that exist. Dr. Heather F. Fleschler will need to assess your specific case before beginning treatment with Invisalign® to determine if it is an appropriate option for you.

Are There Alternative Solutions To Choose From Outside of Traditional Invisalign® Aligners?

While Invisalign® can certainly help close gaps between front teeth, in some cases, other treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results. It is essential to speak with a dental professional such as Dr. Heather F. Fleschler about what type of treatment options would work best for your particular situation. In some situations, patients can quickly close a gap with the use of dental bonding, disguising the gap between them with a composite resin material. Alternatively, porcelain veneers may be suggested. These can be placed over the front of the teeth to cover the gap and provide improved balance and beauty. These two options are faster and might be best if patients do not have any other alignment issues with the dental arch.
