Invisible Aligners: Turning that Extreme Smile Makeover into Reality

Clear orthodontic aligners are typically used for patients who have mild or moderately crowded teeth, or have minor spacing issues. Patients who have severe crowding or spacing problems — or severe underbites, overbites, or crossbites — may need more complex treatment.

For patients who do fit the bill, the process typically takes several steps. A Houston-based extreme makeover dentist such as Dr. Randy Farmer of Houston Smile Docs will first have to take x-rays, pictures, and impressions to produce a 3-D rendering of the patient’s teeth for a more precise fit. A series of clear aligners will subsequently be fabricated and fitted in keeping with the adjustments that need to be made.
