Does Invisalign Move Teeth That Have Crowns or Veneers?
For those folks in Napa, California who are looking to achieve a straight smile, Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional braces.
Your Invisalign treatment will consist of wearing a series of clear plastic aligners (trays) that cover your teeth. The aligners are custom made specifically for you and each pair is worn for two weeks before moving on to the next ones in the series.
Invisalign is very popular among adults because the aligners are nearly invisible meaning that you can go through orthodontic treatment without it being obvious to everyone. Since many adults come in with having had previous dental work done, their first question is often, can you get Invisalign if you have crowns or veneers on your teeth?
Is Invisalign Possible with Crowns and Veneers?
The Invisalign process isn’t at all affected by crowns or veneers. Since crowns and veneers are simply covers that fit over your teeth and don’t affect the tooth root or jaw bone in any way, the restored teeth are still as free to move as a non-restored tooth.
In fact, if you have crowns or veneers, Invisalign is a better option over traditional braces because the aligners can be removed to clean your teeth. Doing so will allow you to clean your crowns and veneers more thoroughly, decreasing your chances of developing decay which is common with braces.
