Cosmetic Dentistry And Invisalign – What Should You Know?

Because orthodontic work is known to produce significant smile improvements, it can be easy to think of it as a type of cosmetic dental procedure. However, this is not the full scope of what an orthodontic adjustment can provide patients. By fixing problems with gaps and overlaps, you can improve your bite function, which can have long-term benefits for your dental health. With that said, it is certainly acceptable to look into a smile adjustment for the esthetic advantages! In fact, our Katy, TX dental practice can make the cosmetic benefits of orthodontic treatment more accessible by offering Invisalign treatment. Because we can offer both orthodontic work and additional cosmetic dental services, we can make ambitious smile improvement plans more convenient for patients.

Can Invisalign Help Me Show Off My Best Smile?

Invisalign aligners are a convenient solution for problems with gaps, overlaps, and other problems that may affect someone’s smile. By fixing the alignment of your teeth, it can be easier for you to smile with confidence because your appearance can be more symmetrical, and free of conspicuous problems. With that said, some people plan on following Invisalign treatment with an additional cosmetic procedure because they want to see major smile changes. For example, you may decide to follow orthodontic work with a teeth whitening treatment.

Including Invisalign Treatment In A Planned Smile Makeover

When planning a smile makeover, you can work with your dentist on outlining all of the smile improvements that you wish to make. We can make ambitious smile improvements more accessible by working with you on laying out all of your goals, and looking for ways to make your care more convenient. In some cases, we can look for ways to remove steps from your larger plans. While Invisalign often fits into a smile makeover, we may find that placing porcelain veneers strategically can help you see your desired results without the need for orthodontic care.

Invisalign Can Help With Your Dental Function, Too

It should be noted that Invisalign can do more than just help you feel better about the way you look. In some cases, patients have orthodontic work recommended because your dentist is concerned about the impact their dental alignment has on their bite. Correcting the positioning of teeth can make it easier to keep them free of tooth decay and gum disease, and also lower your risk for TMJ problems.
