Janet’s Invisalign experience:
Meet Janet whose concerned about her front rotated tooth. Besides this front tooth there is nothing else that really concerned her. Before coming to us, Janet did some research and knew that there could be a few options that can fix this problem but ultimately only one solution that suited her best. She heard about ceramic veneers but unfortunately knew it will require significant tooth cutting which she didn’t like. Traditional braces was another option but she felt as though that is a lot of hassle to go through to fix one tooth. The thought of wearing metal brackets on all her other teeth to fix this one tooth didn’t make sense to her. She also works in retail and appearance is everything, so the more discreet the option the better. Ultimately Invisalign was her solution. Invisalign was able to fix her rotated tooth over 7 months and now she feels so much more confident about herself.
