Will Invisalign Change My Face Shape?
Invisalign is a great alternative treatment for adults and teens that do not desire metal braces and are looking for a virtually invisible method to improve their smile. There are no brackets, wires or restrictions with Invisalign unlike metal braces. Invisalign can even be removed for eating and drinking so that there are no diet restrictions. Essentially, Invisalign is comprised of thin plastic aligners, “trays” that are digitally molded to fit your teeth. Gradually, these trays are replaced over a period of time to straighten the teeth in order to give you the smile you may have always wanted.
An Invisalign trained professional will be able to properly perform an evaluation and provide a treatment plan for any questions you may have regarding Invisalign. Specifically, an orthodontist who is highly trained not only in correcting teeth and bites but in managing and enhancing a person’s entire facial appearance may be a great option if you have questions specific to physical face shape. However, with Invisalign it is possible to slightly change the shape of your mouth once treatment is finished with a positive result.
Before Invisalign treatment, if your lips were being pushed out due to protruding teeth, your mouth may look different. If you previously had an underbite, overbite or crossbite, following any Invisalign treatment your lower face may potentially look slightly different. More often than not, any physical changes to your face following Invisalign treatment will be minimal and hardly noticeable.
Many patients who have received Invisalign can attest to the happiness that treatment it has brought them. According to a consumer testimony, Vicky, a business owner and life coach who had braces previously in her lifetime and noticed reappearance of her overbite said, “Since I got Invisalign treatment, I have more confidence.”
