Crowns and Invisalign®

When a tooth supporting this patient’s bridge on her upper left fractured, a new bridge was not an option, and so, she was to have implants to replace the missing teeth. She was in the midst of having the implants placed, when she decided she wanted to use this as an opportunity to correct her other crowns as she had always felt they were too bulky and were too forward. Looking at her case with a comprehensive eye, we realized right away we could not simply put on slimmer crowns because her lower teeth also jutted out. We needed to bring her lower teeth in first. This was accomplish with Invisalign®. With her lower teeth in a more ideal position, we could then design her upper crowns so they’d be in a more desirable/aesthetic position.
