Do clear aligners help straighten overcrowded teeth, just as well as traditional braces would? (photo)

Clear Braces or Clear Aligners Will Straighten Crooked, Crowded Teeth
From what I can see in your photos, you look like an excellent candidate for either clear braces or clear aligners. The best advice is to find a dentist or orthodontist who is experienced at doing these kinds of cases. He or she should be able to show you cases similar to yours with excellent results. Ask for before and after photos of cases like yours.

Dear Rachel E.,
Thank you for posting your question on RealSelf. I will do my best to provide an answer with the information provided.
First, I want to clarify that there are clear braces (look like metal braces but are ceramic and match the color of your teeth) and clear aligners (example: invisalign). Many people confuse the two. Regardless of the method that you choose, both options treat most cases as well as metal braces.
I recommend scheduling a consult with an orthodontic specialist. He or she will gather the necessary information to address your concerns and provide you with treatment options.
I hope that this helps and best of luck.
