Widening dental arch through palatal expansion, Invisalign or veneers? (Photo)

I am bothered by my narrow dental arch and large buccal corridors, which make me a little self-concious about smiling. What treatment course would you recommend? I also have an implant (left side of my two front teeth).

There are terrific dental appliances specifically developed for adult arch development (DNA, Bioblock, Homeoblock, Meridian, etc.) These appliances work well to help develop and underdeveloped dental arch. They must be worn 12-17 hrs/day to work. They are comfortable and require a simple adjustment every few days by you at home.

Good luck!
