        CASE STUDY #7

        This smile was created wth ALFS,  Invisalign and complementary whitening.

          Before:

          • Narrow arches

          CASE STUDY #8

          This smile was treated in 2 phases.

          Phase 1:  Alfs expansion to widen arches.

          Phase 2: Invisalign used to further  widen and broaden smile. Top and bottom left canine were in collision causing significant wear.

          Before:

          • Narrow arches
          • Heavy pressure on front teeth creating heavy wear and pressure
          • Crowding of front teeth
          • Molars are not upright and are collapsed inward

           

            After:
             

            • Broad and wide smile
            • Face appears more balanced
            • Increased display of teeth
            • Molars are upright

            CASE STUDY #9

            This smile was created in 2 phases. First, we used Homeoblock to expand the arches and help widen the high palate for better tongue posture. Then we used Invisalign to level the bite and rotate misaligned teeth.

              Before:

              • Crowding of front teeth
              • Wear on front teeth due to misalignment of the top and bottom teeth
              • Narrow arches

                After:

                • Better wider palate for better tongue posture for breathing pattern
                • Teeth are aligned and not at risk of wearing further due to the alignment of teeth
                • Wide and broad smile
