How long (hard to tell by picture, I know) would you estimate the treatment of my case? (photos)

How long to expect ... #DrSarahThompson #STL
I would estimate that you'll be in Invisalign for about 18 months give or take. Your teeth look pretty good, but I definitely see where they've relapsed. You should know that once your Invisalign is completed, you will need to wear a retainer for the rest of your life, in order to prevent another costly relapse. If you know that you are not good with wearing retainers, you may want to go directly to veneers, so that you do not have to worry about relapse or having to whiten your teeth. When veneers are done properly, they can last the rest of your life. I hope this helps.
