Many people are now turning towards Invisalign so as to avoid the embarrassment of having to wear metal gadgets inside their mouth. After all, no one wants to be called “bracket mouth” or “tin smile!” With Invisalign you can now correct your teeth without letting anyone know about it; the secret is just between you and Invisalign. Invisalign uses three dimensional imaging technologies along with a range of custom-fitted aligners which help correct the teeth gradually over a period of 9-18 months. However, the question that many people bring up as they hear about Invisalign is whether they can use it in case they have already gone through some other cosmetic dentistry work.

A simple answer to this question is: Yes! A large number of the people who turn to Invisalign are those who have used braces unsuccessfully as gaps started to develop once they removed them. Others used braces and then stopped using them either because they were too painful or they just couldn’t go out with metal wires in their mouth. In other cases, brace wearers didn’t follow the treatment or the dentist’s instructions recently and so once they took them off they had problems again. Surprisingly, many of these people have solved their teeth’s crookedness, thanks to Invisalign!

Whether you have already gone through a cosmetic dentistry session or not, you can use Invisalign. There are no restrictions as far as Invisalign is concerned as long as you fulfill all the criteria for an Invisalign candidate

  • Presence of a treatable condition such as over bite, under bite, cross bite, crowded teeth or widely spaced teeth
  • Availability of time for the treatment
  • Grit to finish off the entire course of treatment

On top of the above mentioned, it is important for you to consider the cost of the treatment as well. Check with your insurance provider regarding how much compensation you will receive from them. In case your insurance providers can’t help you out, talk to your dentist to help you work out a payment plan for you.

On the whole, Invisalign is undoubtedly the best solution for a perfect smile. Visit your local dentist today to find out whether Invisalign can help improve your smile – keep smiling!
