I have tiny gaps between my front teeth. Should I get Invisalign? (photo)

My teeth are perfectly stright and my bite is fine too, but i have tiny gaps in between my 4 front teeth and 4 bottom teeth. I do not want to to get metal braces because i do not think its necesary, but i really want to close the small gaps. Is there a type or retainer that would close the gaps or would invislign work good?!

If you are looking to close a few little gaps, I think Invisalign would be a great option.  If you are looking to make your smile fuller, whiter or more attractive, you should consider going to see a cosmetic dentist.  Veneers may be a great option for you.  Good luck to you and I hope this helps.

Invisalign can definitely help close the small spaces between your teeth. It is difficult to see the spaces without actually flossing your teeth and taking a closer look to see if the spaces can be corrected orthodontically or if it's because the shape of your teeth but Invisalign has helped many of our patients close spaces.
