If you have veneers, can you have invisible braces like Clear Correct or Invisalign?

Veneers are a very popular cosmetic dentistry choice if you want to refresh your smile and restore any badly stained or broken teeth. It involves adding a thin piece of porcelain to the tooth, to redesign your smile.

Invisible braces involve removable aligners that are placed in your mouth to help straighten the teeth and rectify any misalignments or gaps. Whilst having veneers makes things slightly more difficult, it should not stop you receiving invisible braces.
