If you’re thinking about getting Invisalign, you might be concerned about the impact that this may have on your facial structure. Many of our clients at Kettering Dental & Implant Clinic wonder whether Invisalign will increase the size of their lips, and we are here to answer their questions.
It’s crucial to recognize that Invisalign won’t make your lips bigger, as it’s not a cosmetic lip treatment. However, you might notice that your lips seem larger while getting Invisalign treatment. This is due to the fact that your lips will be resting on an appliance, making them appear larger.
While Invisalign cannot increase the size of your lips, it can assist you in achieving the straight teeth and attractive smile of your dreams.
Additionally, the front incisors, which support your lips, can change position, which can give the appearance of fuller lips or where they sit. It explains why some people might notice that their lips’ fullness has changed. When your Invisalign treatment is complete, it will pass and return to normal.
When your Invisalign treatment starts to work, your teeth may be pushed or moved backward. This can cause your lips to migrate slightly forward, due to the upper lip frenulum or the tooth window. However, you may not notice much difference in the size of your lips before and after the Invisalign procedure as it only moves their position. If you experience any pain or swelling in your lips while receiving Invisalign treatment, using ice bags can be extremely helpful.
It’s important to understand how Invisalign treatment can affect your facial structure or features. Generally, Invisalign has no impact on external features. However, if you notice any significant changes or feel uneasy, it is crucial that you visit your dentist for the appropriate course of treatment.
