Invisalign Before And After Pictures
Invisalign braces are a new kind of orthodontic appliance that can replace traditional metal braces. They can be used in all kinds of treatments and for almost any orthodontic problem that does not require jaw surgery. Widely offered through many Invisalign dentists and orthodontists Invisalign was developed about 10 years ago. It has a similar cost to other orthodontic methods and is usually similarly covered by insurance companies, although you should of course check with your own insurance company to verify your own level of cover.
One of the things that I found when investigating the orthodontic options available to me is that there were very few Invisalign before and after pictures. I wanted to see pictures of actual patients and their actual teeth. This hub therefore is to try to show you some of the actual Invisalign pictures from an Invisalign. patient. For a detailed description of the whole process of Invisalign have a look at this Invisalign braces blog which has a large number of Invisalign before and after pictures
Teeth before Invisalign
These are the patients teeth before any treatment had started. As you can see they need a lot of work. Not only are they overcrowded and uneven but the arch also needs widening. The bottom teeth are particularly bad. You will also notice that the patients teeth are in need of whitening. This is something else that can be done with Invisalign, as the Invisalign aligner trays can be used as whitening trays as well.
With Invisalign Braces In
This is a picture of the patient with Invisalign braces in their mouth. As you can see the teeth look shinier, but there is no visible metal or ceramic material. The small bubbles are air and saliva bubbles within the braces. The braces or aligners fit completely snugly to the teeth and are made of a totally transparent plastic. They are of course also removable
In this picture the patient has whitened using Invisalign braces and nitewhite whitening gel. Comparing this to the first picture at the top of this hub you can see that there has been a substantial color change in the teeth. The patient used nitewhite 10% whitening gel overnight for a week. This resulted in the color change shown. You can purchase nitewhite through Amazon.com by clicking on the image of nitewhite below.
No Invisalign? Use This Whitener...
What This Patient Used To Whiten
Most patients that use Invisalign require attachments. These are small pieces of tooth coloured material that are fixed to the teeth. They vary in size and shape according to the movement that the teeth need to make. The number of attachments that a patient needs varies according to how much movement and of what type is needed. In this picture you can see the attachments on the right hand side. When the aligners are removed for eating the attachments remain on the teeth.
After 10 Sets Of Aligners
This picture is after wearing Invisalign braces for 20 weeks. You can see that the upper left front tooth is still out of line. Also the bottom teeth are very misaligned still at this stage. The upper yellow tooth is an old crown that will be fixed after treatment.
After 28 Sets of Aligners
This is the current point of the patient in treatment. I will add more pictures as they are taken. This is after a year of treatment and with at least 6 months more treatment to be completed, mainly for the bottom teeth which are still out of alignment. You can see that the patient still has the old yellow crown on the upper arch. This will be changed when all of the other orthodontic work is finished. when compared with the first pre-invisalign pictures you can see that the teeth are already much, much straighter.
