Getting Invisalign or Braces When You Have Veneers

If you have
beautiful porcelain veneers attached to your teeth, you may wonder if it’s
still possible to have orthodontic work to straighten your smile or resolve any
gaps:

– The best
option is Invisalign, which involves removable aligners to straighten your
teeth.

– Traditional
braces can be used as long as the brackets are only adhered to natural teeth as
they don’t bond well to porcelain.

– Your
dentist/orthodontist will be happy to advise.

“While it’s usually best to get orthodontic work done before veneers are considered, for some people, this isn’t an option.” Read the full story here https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/can-i-have-braces-or-invisalign-if-i-have-dental-veneers/

Dr. Moira Wong – Orthodontist

An exceptionally skilled orthodontist who simply loves to improve the smiles of adults and children.

Dr Moira Wong (GDC no: 67960, UK) developed an ambition to specialise in the field of orthodontics during her time as a dentistry student at the London Hospital Medical College. After graduating in 1994, she gained experience in all fields of dentistry prior to specialisation. This included working as part of the Pennstar trauma team at the University of Pennsylvania.

Dr Wong’s career pathway began with a spell as a house officer in prosthetic dentistry at the Royal London Hospital, followed by senior house officer positions at the Bristol Dental Hospital. During this period she gained her fellowship in dental surgery and worked in the paediatric dentistry department, treating special needs children and addressing complicated developmental problems. She also worked with adults requiring the replacement of multiple teeth.

Returning to London to take up a position as a senior house officer in oral surgery, Dr Wong gained experience in dental and facial surgery. One of her busiest nights was helping with the suturing of patients following a national rail crash.

Dr Wong was then accepted onto the specialty training programme at Guy’s Hospital, where she spent a further three years gaining her master’s degree. She continued onto a consultant training programme at King’s College and St George’s Hospital, gaining her Fellowship in orthodontics. Currently less than 300 UK practitioners have this level of training, with just 5 to 10 people gaining the accreditation in an average year.

Today, Dr Wong has acquired an excellent reputation for her highly sophisticated work and approachable, communicative manner. Her ambition is to be recognised as nothing less than the best orthodontist in London.
