As well as being used for simple orthodontic cases it can also be used as a typical precursor to cosmetic dentistry treatments which generally include veneers, bridges or crowns.
Invisalign Lite is simple. It is used to rectify orthodontic treatment on one or both arches. The real delight of Invisalign Lite is that it offers patients quick, affordable, high quality treatment. However in order to qualify for Invisalign Lite you must have certain pre-determined clinical criteria.
