In this before and after, you are going to see how we helped a college student with mild crowding get a better smile without braces. The pictures below are from one of Dr. Viechnicki’s actual Invisalign patients with mild crowding of her upper and lower front teeth.
Today, I want you to see how orthodontic treatment can be done without braces.
This post shows how to correct mild crowding of the upper and lower teeth with Invisalign.
This is the first Invisalign treatment I am revealing as a before and after – please let me know what you think in the comments.
When this college student came in to visit us for the first time, she knew that she wanted to fix her smile. She was focused on getting a great result and was ready to do whatever she needed to do to get the smile she wanted.
She wanted to invest in her future and improve her smile before she entered the real world.
Invisalign is a great option for patients that come in with that kind of motivation.
The best Invisalign results are possible in patients that are highly self-motivated.
As a diligent student, she was the perfect candidate for Invisalign because she was motivated to wear her removable aligners.
In just under 1 year, she was able to align her teeth with clear aligners.
Clear Aligners Straighten Teeth
During Invisalign treatment, our college student wore clear aligners to help straighten her teeth.
Each clear aligner was worn 22 hours a day for 14 days. At the end of those 2 weeks, she moved on to the next aligner in the sequence.
What made this student’s result so successful was careful planning of each individual tooth movement at each stage in the process.
Before and After: Lower Front Teeth
Crooked lower front teeth can wear unevenly over time. That can make getting straight teeth as an adult more difficult. Fortunately, this college student came in to get her mild crowding corrected in time.
Her lower front teeth were perfectly aligned using clear aligners (no braces).
Before and After: Smile
I saved the best before and after comparison photographs for last.
The biggest problem that this college student had with her teeth was her smile. She came to visit us because she was self-conscious about her smile – even though she had tried whitening.
She never liked seeing that one crooked tooth in pictures. She felt embarrassed when she forgot to turn her head so that the camera would get her “good side”.
Now, with the crooked tooth tucked back where it belongs, she is no longer hesitates when smiling.
I have no doubt that this college student will put her smile to great use throughout life.
Whether at her dream job or just socializing with her friends, she can feel confident in her straight, beautiful smile.
