Invisalign with other Cosmetic Dentistry

Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Hampton, Portsmouth - VA

Schedule A

Invisalign is a great tool for straightening your teeth, and one of its excellent benefits is that it works well with other cosmetic dentistry treatments. Whether you have dental restorations you don’t want to damage, or you want to accomplish more than straightening your teeth, Invisalign is a great treatment for working with other cosmetic dentistry restorations and procedures.

During your consultation, you should bring up prior restorations and discuss your full cosmetic goals so that we can help you achieve them. To schedule a consultation in the Virginia Beach and Norfolk, Virginia area, please call 877-206-3444 or email Michael P. Folck, DDS today.

Prior Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments

One benefit of Invisalign is that it is very benign to other cosmetic dentistry restorations like porcelain veneers or dental crowns. Because Invisalign aligners put force on the entire tooth, they don’t subject your restorations to force likely to cause fracture or de-bonding.

With traditional braces, there is some concern here. There is concern that the bonding of the brackets to the surface of veneers or crowns could result in damage to the restorations. And because traditional braces generally achieve their effects by pulling at the point of attachment, if they are attached to porcelain veneers, they could put stress on the bond between teeth and veneers.

Cosmetic Dentistry Simultaneous with Invisalign

Because Invisalign aligners are removable, you can even get teeth whitening done while you are undergoing Invisalign. Just make an appointment for teeth whitening, and when you’re in the chair you will take off your aligner, get your teeth whitened, then put your aligner back on.

Cosmetic Dentistry after Invisalign

You can also get any cosmetic dentistry treatment you desire after Invisalign. If you have a chipped or small tooth, it can be built up with a porcelain veneer or dental crown right after Invisalign is complete. Porcelain veneers and related Instant orthodontic treatments can even be used to accomplish some types of alignment that are complicated for Invisalign to achieve, such as rotating teeth.

During your consultation, we will talk about your cosmetic goals and design a cosmetic treatment plan that accomplishes them all. In the Virginia Beach and Norfolk, Virginia area, please contact Michael P. Folck, DDS for a consultation today.
