The first company to make invisible braces was Invisalign in 1997. Their technology is provided to Invisalign certified orthodontists along with their 3D imaging system that doctors use to come up with your individual treatment plan. Invisalign is an option for both teens and adults. It’s actually a favorite choice for adults who don’t want to worry about the “stigma” associated with having traditional metal braces because Invisalign is basically invisible! Often, reading independent Invisalign testimonials can help you make your choice.
Dr. Grewal is a board-certified orthodontist and has seen over 7,000 patients since he started practicing 12 years ago. He is passionate about helping his patients improve their smiles! For your convenience, he has locations in Springfield, Carthage, and Branson.
Invisalign is a completely different type of treatment than the conventional metal braces. Instead, clear, removable aligners are used to straighten teeth. The process involves switching out to a new tray (aligner) every few weeks. These are custom-made for your teeth and your orthodontist spends many hours adjusting each one so that it will fit you perfectly and move your teeth accordingly.
We’d like to provide you with some independent, unbiased reviews about how people feel about their Invisalign experience to help you determine if this is the best option for you or your teen! For more information about Invisalign, click here.
“I’m so glad I made the investment to go with aligners rather than metal braces. I’ve heard stories of people having food stuck in their metal braces, and I didn’t want to go through that. It’s so easy – all I have to do is remove my aligners when I eat. I wanted my teeth straighter, but I didn’t want to be in pain My aligners are so comfortable compared to the metal braces I had when I was a kid, that sometimes I forget that I have them on. I always wanted to have straight teeth, but never thought my smile would look this great. Plus, no on even knew I was wearing them. I couldn’t be happier!” – Ione, age 58
“The reason I went with Invisalign is because I’m not a kid anymore. I didn’t want to look like a kid with braces on, and have the hassle of keeping them clean. There is a lot of work to keeping your teeth in good health when you have traditional braces.” – Daniel, age 38
“I definitely smile a lot more. Even though I’m still in treatment, it has given me more confidence. It’s given me something to look forward to. I feel good about myself. I feel good that I have taken the steps to get these braces.” – Breanna, age 20
“What I like best about Invisalign is the fact that I can take them out and floss and brush my teeth and put them back in. So it’s not like I’m working around all this metal in my mouth, trying to get the toothbrush and floss in there.” – Gina, age 31
“I would not have gone the regular braces route because I am in a customer-facing position. I’m in the hi-tech industry, with a lot of people around me that are young and hip and moving and shaking. To be in management, in a hi-tech company with a mouthful of braces in front of customers and prospects and other executive partners, it just wasn’t an option.” – William, age 31
“At my age, to have the big metal train tracks in your mouth, I just figured, in person with people, I just wouldn’t feel as comfortable with something that was truly invisible. I really believe in the product. I’m kind of a walking, talking billboard for it.” – Vivian, age 53
“I am absolutely positively thrilled. The fact that I was done with it in less than a year, and really had no inconveniences whatsoever, makes me wonder why I even hesitated.” – Pam, age 55
“What a huge difference, my bite is starting to align. Food particles don’t get stuck in between crooked teeth but easily comes off by itself. It’s definitely easier to clean. My only concern is since my teeth have been crooked all my life, tartar easily get built up, now they are slightly straight, I notice major recession in my gum. It has noticeable gaps. If I had not gotten braces sooner, I would suffer teeth loss In a couple years from now. Now I easily care for them. Hooray to healthy teeth!” – Samuel, age 34
“Front gaps are starting to close and longer front teeth are aligning to upper teeth. Front upper teeth have definitely moved significantly. I’m on my last day of 4th tray of 25. Up to date, only one person has noticed my aligners due to my speech difference from my first week of wearing them. Now I feel confidently talking in them because my tongue has adjusted. People don’t look at them while I speak even if I’m really up close to them.” – Jackson, age 24
“I’m on my last day of my third tray. Problematic teeth are starting align and I couldn’t be much happier. Excited to see end results of each tray. My teeth seem to be much more whiter than ever. I’m due for my next appoint to get my new set of aligners.” – Danielle, age 22
“I still can’t stop smiling and it’s been so worth it! I still feel confident! I never thought Invisalign would work for me but it did! I got the smile I’ve always wanted!” – Susan, age 36
“I have been officially done with Invisalign since August 29,2017! This has truly changed my life and ever since they came off, I don’t stop smiling. Before, I would fake smile and now I am really happy! My self-esteem has been Sky high and I can’t stop smiling. It is so hard to not smile now because of my teeth. I get compliments all the time now! Oh my God you look different and stuff like that, and I just say it’s because I’m confident!” – Bryan, age 30
“Okay so happy new year everyone! Hope 2017 will be amazing! What was my resolution for 2016? To have straighter teeth! Well I did it! My teeth are straight and I love it!!!! I can’t stop smiling and still so confident! I absolutely can’t believe I have my confidence back!” – Kate, age 26
“I have like 4 1/2 more months to go and my self-confidence has gotten sky high to the point that I’m not self-conscious anymore and I’m smiling a lot more. I have been super happy with the results that this has changed my life forever! I have friends that beg for Invisalign now because they see a huge difference.” – Richard, age 49
