Invisalign vs composite

Your dentist can always close the gap with composite and you can ask him/her to remove it if you don't like it, or he can show you a wax-up of your teeth.  Invisalign with IPR (which is reshaping the contact between your teeth) can also close those spaces.  gthe advantage of invisalign is you don't have to worry about fillings on your teeth.
