Lydia and her wedding smile

Watch the story

Lydia Had Train-Track Braces At School

But sometimes teeth crowd up again

Unfortunately, not all orthodontists give out retainers for life and when we’re young we have more important things to worry about than straight teeth.

If that sounds like you, you’re not alone, and luckily it’s usually more straightforward to straighten teeth second time around.

Her goal

Lydia’s wedding was fast approaching.

Her goal was simple…be able to smile on her wedding with complete confidence. Nobody should have to worry if their photographer is catching their bad side.

The Plan

What we can see

  • Front teeth are crossed over
  • Second tooth on left is shorter than the right
  • The front edges are worn down
  • Both upper and lower teeth are crowded



We look for symmetry in a smile

To get Lydia wedding-ready we needed to first unravel the crowding, knowing that her teeth wouldn’t be perfect with Invisalign alone.

After whitening, we needed to tidy the edges up and lengthen the short tooth to make it symmetrical to the other side.

It’s a process, and we call it ABC.
