Crowns on Your Teeth (4 on Back Molars)- Can You Use Invisialign?

Doctor Answers 4

Crowns are no problem..

We can fit invisalign over the crowns no problem just like natural teeth. Invisalign works great for this because crowns cant have brackets bonded onto them...

Invisalign works even if teeth have crowns on them.

Invisalign not only works, it may have some advantages if teeth have crowns. Often it is difficult to attach regular braces to artifiicial crowns, whether metal or porcelain. With Invisalign such attachment is not necessary and yet the teeth can be moved just as if they were natural teeeth.

Invisalign works on the crowns same as a natural tooth

Invisalign works on the crowns same as natural tooth. As long as you do not need and bottom or white bracket on your teeth , there is no difference between crown or natural tooth. there is some restrictions to bond a bottom to porcelain restorations or white fillings.

Invisalign is great on crowned teeth

Since invisalign uses "pushing" forces, teeth that were previously crowned do not present a problem.  It is possible that when treatment is done that the crowns may need to be countoured.
