Before we start your Invisalign treatment, we want to talk in detail about the current state of your smile and your cosmetic goals. Most people get Invisalign to straighten their teeth, but sometimes we use Invisalign in support of restorative dentistry procedures, such as making space for a dental implant or dental crown.
If you are a current patient at Rice Dentistry, we will evaluate your dental records. If you are a patient at a different practice, we will want to see your current dental records, but Dr. Rice might perform an additional exam to help him understand your oral health.
Once Dr. Rice understands your health and cosmetic goals, he will discuss your options. In particular, he will help you understand whether porcelain veneers or Invisalign is better for your smile. If you decide to go forward with Invisalign, we’ll schedule your next appointment.
