Will invisalign work with a bridge?

Bridge or Invisalign first?
I would love to see some photos of your smile and the areas that you want corrected. Without photos, your question is actually more complicated than it seems at first glance, so let me explain.
Without photos, most dentists will probably tell you to get the bridge before the Invisalign because Invisalign doesn't move bridges and you are limiting yourself with movement options, when you place a non-movable bridge in your mouth prior to Invisalign treatment.
However, what may not have been considered, is that Invisalign uses your molars as leverage to move the rest of your teeth, so depending on it's location, your bridge could provide more leverage that would ultimately make your anterior teeth easier to move with Invisalign. Therefore, I would highly recommend that you post pictures (that don't show your identity), so that the cosmetic dentists and orthodontists on this site can make a more accurate determination.
Good luck to you and if you have any additional questions of me here on Real Self, be sure to go to click on my name and hit "follow." Take care.
