How Can Invisalign And Braces Alter Your Facial Shape?

Invisalign and braces treat dental problems by using gentle force to change teeth, bones, and tissue positions. This will, of course, make you experience changes in your facial appearance. The technique applied will alter the angles of parts of your facial structure, like the lips, chin, nose, and even cheeks.

The gradual force will be used to reposition your teeth to a more ideal position according to your diagnosis. After a complete evaluation of your facial symmetry, the orthodontist will come up with the best treatment plan. Both ways work the same, as they treat issues of different severity, so changes in facial appearance will be experienced in all of them. Incorrect bite problems, also known as malocclusion, are responsible for these facial changes.


This is when the upper jaw tends to be longer than the lower one. The teeth in the upper jaw cross over the lower teeth. When the condition is extreme, the cheeks will look like they are sunken deep between the two jaws. The chin will pull backward, making it look weak. After treatment, there will be changes in your facial impressions.


This is when the lower teeth overlap the upper ones even when the mouth is closed. Rectifying this will bring changes to the face, as it was already in an awkward position.

Open Bite

It occurs when your upper teeth and lower teeth don’t meet. The two teeth straightening methods will remodel your face to a greater look.


In some instances, several lower teeth appear to be in front of the upper teeth. In some severe conditions, the jaw tends to shift to one side. Braces and Invisalign treatments will fix this and relocate the jaws and lips to a more balanced position.

Orthodontic treatments bring changes to your facial appearance. These changes are noticeable and will mostly be positive alterations. Consult our orthodontist to find out what orthodontic treatment involves and what to expect.
