Compared to traditional metal braces, one of the 'clear' advantages of Invisalign aligners is that they're transparent, making it much less obvious to tell if you're wearing them. Here, our dentists explain.
Invisalign orthodontic treatment is a series of clear, removable aligners that are an alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign's thin, plastic aligners are worn over your teeth in order to move them into correct alignment.
When the aligners are cleaned and cared for properly it will be difficult for others to detect that wearing them.
The fact is that whether or not someone can see your aligners will mostly depend on how close they are to you.
From even a relatively short distance it's almost impossible to see that you have anything on your teeth, but if someone takes a very close look at your mouth they might be able to tell that you are wearing them.
While Invisalign isn’t completely invisible, it is significantly less noticeable than traditional metal braces, and can help you to achieve a straighter smile.
