I have a case of an overjet, and deep bite. My ortho said he can treat these problems by expanding my arch. I do want a wider smile too. I'm concerned whether expanding my arches will change my lip thickness or face shape - like having a more supported cheek?
Will Expanding my Arch with Invisaligns Change Lip/facial Shape?

Expanding Arch With Invisalign
The amount that an arch can be expanded with Invisalign is MINIMAL. For true expansion, you would need standard orthodontic braces.
