Combining Invisalign ® With Other Cosmetic Dentistry

Few people are born with perfect teeth, but that doesn’t mean you should settle for a dissatisfying smile. Invisalign ® straightens your teeth to give you a more attractive appearance. If your aesthetic concerns extend beyond crowded, unevenly spaced, or slightly crooked teeth, you can combine Invisalign with other cosmetic dentistry for the smile you deserve.

If you feel embarrassed about your stained, chipped, or cracked teeth, you might benefit from combining Invisalign with other cosmetic dentistry. At Collins Dentistry and Aesthetic, cosmetic dentists, Drs. Ken and Marnie Collins work with you to meet your aesthetic goals.

If you feel ready to change your smile, please call Drs. Ken & Marnie Collins in their Spokane office at 509-532-1111 or contact their office by email. You can also make an appointment online.

Experience The Benefits of Beautiful Teeth with Invisalign

Your smile impacts the first impressions you leave on people you meet. Yellowing, crooked, and damaged teeth give you the appearance of poor health and low intelligence. Not only that, but bad teeth can also hurt your self-confidence. Improving the looks of your smile can help you feel more confident in yourself and increase your success in relationships and at work.

Improving your teeth also protects your physical health. Straightening your teeth with Invisalign makes hygiene easier, decreasing your risk of gum disease and tooth decay. Straightening your teeth also reduces your risk of developing temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) as a result of a bad bite.

Close Any Remaining Gaps

Some larger gaps will not close all the way with Invisalign. We use porcelain veneers to close the remaining gaps. These thin pieces of porcelain affix to the surface of your teeth in order to give you a seamless smile.

Repair Physical Damage

You can also restore cracked or chipped front teeth using porcelain veneers. These restorations restore your smile and give your teeth a protective layer against further damage or decay. We carefully color-match each durable veneer with surrounding teeth so that they look natural.

For molar damage, we create custom porcelain dental crowns and color-match them to your teeth. Dental crowns protect your damaged tooth while giving the outward appearance of perfect oral health.

Remove Surface Stains
Poorly aligned teeth are more difficult to clean around and between efficiently, which can cause heavy staining. After Invisalign straightens your teeth, our professional Zoom! Tooth Whitening services can brighten your teeth for a Hollywood-quality grin.

Disguise Deeper Staining
Some stains reach too deep for tooth whitening procedures to effectively remove. For these stains, we use porcelain veneers to refresh your smile. As with physical damage, these restorations cover deep stains.

Why Start With Invisalign?

Invisalign often serves as the first step in your smile makeover. Waiting for your teeth to become straight before other cosmetic dentistry allows us to make adjustments in your dental plan based on the effectiveness of your Invisalign treatment. We want to allow time for Invisalign to change the alignment of your teeth first. Porcelain veneers can then fix any remaining gaps.

You might also consider waiting until after Invisalign for tooth whitening. Although staining is unlikely if you stay on top of proper hygiene, waiting until after your treatment for tooth whitening can save you from needing to schedule an extra appointment.

You deserve to feel confident in your appearance, and your teeth should never stand in the way of that. For a consultation at Collins Dentistry and Aesthetic, or to learn more about the benefits of combining Invisalign with other cosmetic dentistry, please contact our office today.
