Jason K. Bunch, DDS, MS

We all love a good transformation story, and there’s nothing better than celebrating our patients’ incredible orthodontic treatment journeys. In this post, we’ll be celebrating just a few of the thousands of notable Invisalign before and after stories at some of our Central Indiana offices.

Patients of all ages come to us at Gorman and Bunch Orthodontics with the hope of creating a beautiful smile that fits both their lifestyle and budget. For many, Invisalign is the tool of choice to accomplish that goal. The clear, removable, custom-made aligners shift teeth in incremental steps to the final desired position for a healthier smile.

Read on to see how our team of orthodontists changed these patients’ lives and be inspired by the Invisalign pictures before and after treatment.

Invisalign Before and After Overcrowding

Westfield, Indiana
Treatment Time: 19 months

While this patient didn’t have any major skeletal bite issues, he came to Gorman & Bunch hoping to correct moderate overcrowding and high canine teeth. With the help of Invisalign, he was able to wear the aligners, while still losing a few remaining baby teeth. He completed his Invisalign treatment plan after 19 months with a lower permanent retainer and an upper clear retainer.

Underbite Correction

Carmel, Indiana
Treatment Time: 23 months

Some wrongly assume that orthodontic care is purely cosmetic. On the contrary, orthodontic treatment is vital in preventing long-term damage to the mouth, teeth, and gums. That was the case for this patient when he started treatment at our orthodontic office. If left untreated, his Class III underbite would have caused excessive damage to his upper and lower front teeth along with gum recession, which would jeopardize the long-term stability of the lower teeth. After just 23 months of using Invisalign and rubber bands, his bite was corrected and the long-term damage to his teeth is no longer a concern.

Carmel, Indiana
Treatment Time: 24 months

This patient pursued treatment for his Class III underbite. He started with a Carriere appliance on his lower teeth to correct his bite along with Invisalign on his upper teeth. Once his bite was corrected (a process that usually takes around six to ten months), he finished his treatment with upper and lower Invisalign aligners as well as rubber bands. He completed his treatment in just 24 months.

Invisalign for Overbite

Carmel, Indiana
Treatment Time: 15 months

This patient’s Invisalign treatment plan set out to correct her Class II overbite and overcrowding. In addition to Invisalign aligners, her treatment also included a Carriere bite corrector and lingual holding arch. Her bite was corrected within four months, and she was able to complete her total treatment in just 15 months. Following treatment, she was provided with a lower permanent retainer and an upper clear retainer to prevent an overcrowding relapse in the future.

Invisalign for Open Bites

Carmel, Indiana
Treatment Time: 23 months

This patient started treatment for a Class III anterior open bite after experiencing damage from an NTI appliance, which is a mechanism sometimes used to treat jaw pain (TMJ) issues. While the appliance helped with her joint pain, it also caused extensive bite problems. Our team of orthodontist specialists prescribed upper and lower Invisalign with rubber bands to correct her upper crossbite and bring her upper and lower teeth together for an enhanced bite. Like many of our patients, she completed her treatment early and now enjoys a healthier smile for life.

    review rating 5  This 64 year old had teeth that had begun to overlap in my adult years, which was attributed to having 4 good teeth removed as a child for "Crowded teeth". I waited to fund Invisalign until incurring no penalty for taking IRA funds, other than taxes. I was fortunate to be referred to Dr. Jason Bunch by my dentist, Dr. Jack Nicewander. Dr. Bunch and his Carmel, IN office staff see numerous children and young adults, but welcome the young at heart as well. I trust them and find them accommodating, efficient, professional and compassionate.

    review rating 5  We were very pleased with the staff and services at Gorman & Bunch. From the beginning, they were very friendly and made us feel comfortable with our first ortho visit. Dr. Carly was very nice and attentive. We ended up with braces for my son on the first visit and they were quick and thorough and made our experience very positive. Definitely would recommend them! They are awesome!

  • review rating 5  I can’t say enough great things about this office. I am legal guardian of my sister and she is going through Invisalign with them… She’s almost done and I am amazed by the results. I also go there for continued orthodontic care because orthodontic retention is for life! So glad I have such great people to care for our teeth!!!

  • review rating 5  Personal and professional, everyone always takes great care of my sensitive mouth teen! This is our first experience with needing orthodontia, when it’s time for my youngest to get braces, we’ll choose this place again in a heartbeat. From the team up front to the team in the back, everyone is so nice and yet so efficiently on task, it is quite impressive. They have reasonable pricing and are willing to help with a payment plan. Keep up the great work!!

    review rating 5  I just started my first week with the Invisalign. The staff has been extremely friendly and helpful through every step. Dr Carly’s initial evaluation of my case was extremely thorough and the options were explained in detail to help make an informed decision. They’ve certainly exceeded my expectation and from the looks of it, they do a great job with their younger patients as well!
