Restorative dental and prosthetic treatment in patients demanding aesthetics and function sometimes requires an interdisciplinary approach. In fact, restoring lost or missing teeth often requires the involvement of orthodontic, prosthetic and restorative professionals. The Invisalign system is much more accepted by patients due to its excellent aesthetic and comfort characteristics, reducing the risk of plaque-induced periodontal problems. Invisalign therapy, combined with restorative procedures, is an ideal alternative to offering sound tooth tissue maintenance, offering a very conservative approach. In this article it will be shown how the combination of Invisalign aligners and restorative therapies may lead to a predictable result, especially in patients with severe tooth size discrepancies.
