A smile is a universal language that speaks volumes about one’s confidence and self-assurance. However, for many individuals, achieving a radiant smile can be hindered by misaligned teeth or bite issues. Fortunately, advancements in orthodontic technology have paved the way for innovative solutions, with Invisalign emerging as a game-changer in the field of teeth straightening. In this blog post, we’ll showcase Invisalign before and after transformations that individuals have undergone at Z Dentistry.

Before discovering Invisalign, many individuals grapple with a range of challenges associated with misaligned teeth or bite issues. These challenges may include:

  1. Self-Consciousness: Feeling self-conscious about their smile can erode self-esteem and hinder social interactions.
  2. Oral Health Concerns: Misaligned teeth can make proper oral hygiene difficult, increasing the risk of dental issues like cavities and gum disease.
  3. Functional Discomfort: Bite issues such as overbite, underbite, or crossbite can cause discomfort while eating, speaking, or even sleeping.

These situations can take a toll on one’s overall well-being, impacting both personal and professional aspects of life. However, there is a modern, discreet, and effective alternative to braces — Invisalign. These clear, removable aligners gently shift teeth into their desired positions. The treatment process typically involves:

  1. Consultation: A thorough assessment by an Invisalign provider to understand the patient’s dental needs and treatment goals.
  2. Customized Treatment Plan: Utilizing cutting-edge 3D imaging technology, a personalized treatment plan is crafted, outlining the step-by-step movements of the teeth.
  3. Aligner Fabrication & Delivery: Custom-made aligners are fabricated to fit snugly over the patient’s teeth. Attachments and select tooth slenderizing may also be required.
  4. Progress Monitoring: Patients wear each set of aligners for approximately 1 week before progressing to the next set. Regular check-ups ensure the treatment is progressing as planned.
  5. Completion: Upon completion of the treatment plan, patients unveil their beautifully transformed smiles and receive retainers to be worn at night for a lifetime. This ensures your newly aligned teeth stay put!

Invisalign Before and After

Let’s delve into the transformative journey of individuals who have undergone orthodontics at Z Dentistry using Invisalign before and after photos.

1. Crooked & Crowded Teeth

Before Invisalign, individuals may have struggled with crooked or crowded teeth. After completing their treatment, their smiles are beautifully aligned, exuding symmetry and harmony.

  • 30 weeks of treatment
  • Take-home teeth whitening trays and gel were worn overnight for 4-6 weeks
  • Post-ortho contouring on the front teeth was done to give a more even appearance
  • Life-long retainers were made to keep the alignment in place


2. Front Teeth Gap

A gap in-between teeth, especially the front ones, can impact the way a person talks and eats. Additionally, some people may not like the appearance of a gap, while others embrace it. In some instances, a gap can also cause dental problems and/or issues with neighboring teeth.

  • 7 months of Invisalign treatment
  • Take-home whitening trays and gel were worn overnight for 4-6 weeks
  • Post-ortho composite bonding was done on select teeth to add lost tooth structure and allow for a more even appearance
  • Life-long retainers were made to keep the alignment in place


3. Overbite Correction

An overbite is defined as vertical misalignment of teeth. The upper teeth overlap the lower teeth more than they should. Many people’s teeth develop this overbite naturally, from genetics. Orthodontic treatment like Invisalign, can easily correct an overbite. It makes at-home oral hygiene easier and gives patients a more aligned and healthier smile.

  • 6 months of Invisalign treatment
  • The lower front teeth were brought up so that they are now visible in the patient’s smile and more accessible for brushing and flossing
  • Life-long retainers were made to keep the alignment in place
