Can you use Invisalign if you have a crown?

For patients in Stuart, FL interested in improving their bite quality, speech, smile, and confidence, we offer Invisalign for a virtually invisible orthodontic experience. 

Custom-Fit Orthodontic Treatment

Invisalign works very well to align teeth that have crowns (caps). The clear aligning trays are custom fit over and around your existing crown. Tooth movement will take place just like a tooth without a crown. Sometimes a small attachment needs to be bonded to a tooth to get it to move in the correct direction. Porcelain dental crowns can be predictably bonded. 

Invisalign clear aligners are a modern way to comfortably and gently shift teeth without making a change in your smile's appearance. Our Stuart, FL patients can enjoy numerous benefits of clear orthodontics, including:

  • Aligners are clear and unnoticeable
  • Treatment is gentle, with new sets being switched out every two weeks
  • Aligners can be removed for eating or brushing and flossing
  • Invisalign is smooth and comfortable

Wearing Invisalign With Dental Crowns

Patients who have dental crowns aren't disqualified from enjoying the advantages of Invisalign. Straightening a smile with dental crowns is not much different than straightening natural teeth. 

Since Invisalign uses clear trays that don't bond to your teeth like traditional metal braces, they can be custom-fabricated to fit over your teeth and dental crown. The procedure is straightforward and won't affect your Invisalign treatment. Dental crowns are bonded to your tooth for structural and cosmetic reasons. 

For example, a badly damaged tooth can be supported with dental crowns. Likewise, a badly stained tooth can be made attractive again with handcrafted dental crowns. Since dental crowns are not anchored to the jawbone, teeth that have tooth crowns can be moved as well as teeth without crowns. 

During your procedure, your Stuart, FL dentist will ensure that the aligner fit is secure and comfortable. We will check your dental crown to make sure it is bonded tightly to allow your teeth to gently shift into their aligned position. 

At Jensen Beach Dental, our dentists are highly skilled at placing clear aligners, so dental crowns are typically not an issue. 

Caring for Your Dental Crowns and Invisalign

Caring for your teeth is incredibly important to fight against tooth decay, infection, or disease. 

Preventive measures are especially necessary when your teeth are vulnerable during dental treatment.

We recommend brushing and flossing daily and check for any abnormalities or complications. Patients can keep their Invisalign aligners clean by washing them gently and rinsing any time they are removed. 

Having a natural-looking dental restoration won't prevent you from having a dazzling smile. Call us today to find out more about Invisalign and how it can enhance your life.
