No Braces Required!
Crooked teeth have an aging effect on the appearance of the patient and can make the patient look less professional and less credible. Crooked yellow teeth make patients of any age look older and less desirable. These patients with crooked teeth want straight teeth without braces because they simply do not have the time to wear braces or Invisalign retainers for the next year or two.
After Invisalign is completed, patients also need to wear retainers or the teeth can relapse. Additionally, Invisalign cannot improve the shape of the teeth, which is highly desirable with anti-aging dentistry.
However, Invisalign does have benefits that need to be considered. Patients look older because their teeth are yellow and worn down.
Anti-aging dentistry has the ability with porcelain veneers to not only change the shape of the teeth but also permanently improve the color.
