Hi Mark. I am wondering if I would be a suitable candidate for Invisible aligners or other clear aligner treatment? I have a moderate over-bite, with the top middle two teeth jutting out slightly further than the next two teeth. There is some over-crowding in the top too, with the teeth next to the top middle ones sitting slightly behind them. At the moment I have temporary veneers on these two teeth to bring them into line (the dentist I was seeing didn’t prep the teeth and put permanent veneers on as I was still considering orthodontic work). However, I don’t like the look of the veneers compared to my own teeth. I would be happy with veneers if they looked more like my own teeth, which are slightly transparent and have texture. Whereas the veneers look a bit dead to me, plastic looking. I had the bottom teeth straightened in my 20s and still have the glued in retainer. Now that I’m older I don’t want to have visible regular braces. I’d be grateful for your advice.
