Correcting Invisalign treatment
Invisalign treatment is a great cosmetic procedure that can correct many types of problems such as crowding of teeth. The procedure also requires some enamel removal on the sides of teeth called inter-proximal reduction (IPR) to gain space in order to alleviate crowding. It's critical when the dentist that performs this procedure is able to maintain the shape of the teeth to achieve a great result. In this case, the dentist performed IPR for Invisalign but removed too much tooth structure during the treatment. The conclusion of the case resulted in straight teeth, but with abnormal shapes, especially between the two front incisors which created a gap. This gap can be corrected with cosmetic dentistry such as bonding or veneers.
