Invisalign in Richmond – treating all sorts of smiles

To find out if Invisalign is suitable for your dental issue, you need to visit one of our skilled practitioners at Sheen Dental. This is because there is no way to tell whether Invisalign can work for you until you have been examined.

Invisalign has been used on more than 4 million smiles around the world. It can be applied to many common issues to improve the appearance and health of your teeth.

Below are just a few of the types of smile that can be improved by Invisalign in Richmond.

Invisalign in Richmond

Gapped teeth

Gaps between the teeth are fairly common. However, they can become an issue if they are unsightly or prone to trapping food and debris next to the teeth. If you are aware of large gaps, it can affect your confidence.

Invisalign in Richmond can be used to move teeth inwards and closer together to refine a smile with gaps.


Most people do not naturally grow a perfect smile. Overcrowding is quite common and regularly caused by genetics. Straightening the teeth out with a solution like Invisalign can help the teeth to look better. However, there is also a clinic reason to correct the issue. It is much easier to keep straight teeth clean and free from a build-up of tartar and plaque.

Open bite

An open bite is one where the teeth of the upper and lower jaw have been forced outwards. This leads to a gap between the upper and lower teeth. It is often caused by action taken by a patient at some point during their lives, such as thumb sucking or tongue thrusting.

In the right circumstances, Invisalign in Richmond with Sheen Dental can be used to alleviate issues caused by an open bite.

Cross bite

Patients who have a cross bite can experience long-term problems with their jawbone caused by uneven development. It is best to get the issue addressed early with a solution like Invisalign.

Only certain types of issue are suitable for this treatment but, if it is possible, then your practitioner can offer you a clear, comfortable solution. If not, they will offer you guidance on the other options that are available to you.
