Using Invisalign To Close A Smile Gap

If you have a gap between teeth caused by malocclusion – poor smile alignment – our Des Moines, IA dentist’s office can help! Through Invisalign treatment, we can help you fix this and other issues discreetly. Your aligners can remain in place without attracting unwanted attention, and you can remove them at your convenience. We provide a variety of services that help people improve their appearance. While Invisalign can help you change your smile for the better, it can also address bite issues that interfere with your oral health. Those problems include a higher risk for TMJ disorder, as poor smile alignment can lead increased tension on your jaw joints and muscles.

We Can Help You Deal With Frustrating Alignment Flaws

Problems with the alignment of your smile can impact your confidence. Even a small gap between teeth, or an issue with overlaps that interfere with your facial symmetry, can cause frustrating doubts about the way you look. With metal braces, you can undergo corrective work to improve your smile and oral health by fixing alignment flaws. By using Invisalign to straighten your teeth, you can address these flaws with appliances that draw less notice. They also make treatment more convenient, as you can remove them freely before eating or cleaning your teeth.

Using Invisalign To Straighten Teeth

Your dentist will take digital measurements of your teeth when planning your procedure. With these measurements, we can determine the right designs for your appliances. The aligners that are provided to you will be carefully designed to fit securely and move your teeth properly. You will wear your Invisalign appliances throughout the day. Thanks to their clear design, you can wear them without worrying over their effect on your appearance. You will be able to remove them in times when they are in your way – for instance, you can take them out before you eat, or before you clean your teeth.

Hiding A Gap With Cosmetic Treatment

For some patients, we can recommend other cosmetic dental procedures that can hide a gap between teeth. With veneers or tooth bonding treatment, we can make an undersized tooth larger to effectively close a space. This work can make many changes to the shape, size, and color of teeth, leading to overall smile improvements that give you more confidence in the way you look!
