I am 38 years old and have horribly crowded and misaligned teeth. All my canines are out of place..I was wondering if Invisalign could be an option for me..I am embarrassed to see a dentist and my confidence level is zero because of this.. I feel terrible all the time..Kindly suggest what would be the best treatment option. Thanks much.
Can Invisalign work for my over-crowded teeth? (photo)

Very crowded teeth
First of all, don't be ashamed of seeing a dentist...they love to help patients like you and have seen much much worse!
Invisalign with extractions might work but find a doctor with a great deal of experience because your problem is not an easy case with Invisalign

#Invisalign may be an option...
Furthermore, you may require extractions of some teeth to provide room to align your crowded teeth.
Another option that you haven't considered is going to an experienced cosmetic dentist and asking for a consultation. I have fixed the teeth of patients very, very similar to your teeth in a 1-2 appointment. I've done this placing a series of crowns, bridges and veneers. The result is life changing and is usually a little pricey. The benefits include an immediate perfect smile. Whoever you choose, check out some before and afters to make sure that the doctor is capable of giving you the results that you desire. Good luck to you and I hope this helps.
