Invisalign aligners are used to straighten crooked or crowded teeth, as well as fix overbites and gaps between the teeth. The treatment involves wearing clear, plastic trays that are custom-designed to fit your mouth, making Invisalign a less-noticeable alternative to metal braces. LEARN MORE ›

Here goes - a little about me. 34 year old mother of two young ones. I've had gappy front teeth since I can remember. Previous dentists have advised it is because I still have a baby canine in the line up and should the adult tooth have come down properly the gaps would have been closed. But... READ MORE

The long awaited day came on Monday, 30th June 2014. I finally got my Invisalign. I come from a small country in Europe, so there's no insurance coverage for Invisalign as it's not that well known either. I only ever known of people having normal metal braces (which absolutely do not bother me... READ MORE

Well I just started my invisilign treatment about two weeks ago. I'm still on tray 1 but will probably switch to tray 2 tonight. Have attachments/buttons on front teeth. My first tray didn't hurt as I thought it would after reading all the reviews. Think I have a year and a half treatment... READ MORE

I have always wanted to reduce my gap but couldn't afford it. A free years back I had my wisdom teeth removed and my slight gap became the size of a quarter and growing. My dentist recommended Invisalign and here I am! My treatment plan is for a year but after reading some of these reviews I see... READ MORE

My dental issues and why I needed braces: I'm a 40 year-old woman. For most of my adult life (and even parts of my childhood), I have struggled with periodontal disease. I may have a genetic predisposition toward it, but the crowding in my teeth, as well as some weird over-spacing that appeared... READ MORE

I'm on tray 5 of 52 of invisalign, and I've noticed a lot of differences between my treatment plan and what is typical, so I've decided to write a review/blog. For example I was told to change my aligners weekly, and need two years+ of treatment, when I subjectively feel that my teeth aren't... READ MORE

Join me as I embark on my journey to my perfect smile. A little background on my teeth so whoever may have similar issues can relate. As a toddler growing up, I had straight perfect teeth with no gaps. Along the years, my front two teeth have shifted because of my Frenum, which is a tissue that... READ MORE

This website has been very helpful in my decision making process, so here comes my story! I had braces when I was 18 and felt very self-concious about it so when my teeth shifted due to not wearing a retainer I was not happy. The thing with the retainer was that it did not fit anymore after a... READ MORE

I am new to Invisalign, starting my first of 48 trays only yesterday. I have found the process of getting started to be easy and informative. I have been told all along what to expect which goes inline with the reviews you read. I think I have about 14 attachments but I knew that would happen... READ MORE

So the reason that I was looking into doing Invisalign is because of the crowding on my bottom teeth as shown on the top of the two pictures. I had my wisdom teeth come in when I was 16 and there was no room for them to come in. They pushed my teeth out of place and caused so much pain, the... READ MORE

I might say I'm quite happy finally I have Invisalign. I will write about my first experience as is. Today was the first time I put it on. I had my last wisdom tooth pulled out 2 weeks ago. My dentist is very informative about what to expect and all. She told me I might feel a bit pain, but... READ MORE

Hello everyone, welcome to my journey for straight teeth. I am a 30 year old woman with two kids, (so money matters) and an outcall massage therapist, so I am up close and personal with all my clients giving them a great view of all the spaces between my front teeth. I wouldn't go as far as to... READ MORE

Day 1 was just a nightmare. I was SOOOOO excited to FINALLY be having them fitted that i had not thought past arriving at my Orthodontist! I had done months of research and knew exactly what to expect but the reality was still very different. The fitting appt was very quick and simple, dried... READ MORE

Not new to RealSelf but very new to Invisalign. Like several others here, I decided to share my experience because of my age and the reviews I read here were a major deciding factor to go with Invisalign. I'm 53 years old and have had only one dental issue in my life (root canal & crown of a top... READ MORE

So, I finally am able to afford orthodontics and went ahead with Invisalign. Since I work in a customer service type job, I didn't want a mouth full of metal braces. My case is pretty mild - some crowding and my canines have a bit of a crossbite. However, my dentist said he thinks it will take... READ MORE

Ello :) Cant believe I am finally on the other end of a RealSelf review, I have been reading these pages and reviews for years.. always wishing that one day it would be me! Last year I had made a promise to myself that if I could receive a scholarship for university that I would finally commit... READ MORE

As a little girl I was always made fun of by my brothers that I was going to need a head gear to fix my teeth, but luckily as I got older my teeth slightly fixed themselves, although they're still crooked. Yes I have terribly bad cavities but I want straight teeth first, FINGERS CROSSED! Let's... READ MORE

I wasn't expected to have an elastic with my invisalign treatment but my orthodontist said for my case i needed (overbite and gap teeth). Only getting my first aligner next month and I am very excited as not sure if it really invisible as I have elastic on it... and not sure if elastic will... READ MORE

I had braces when I was in high school but once I took them off never followed-up and my teeth criss-crossed across my mouth in a very unattractive way. Previously my biggest problem with my smile was that it was very gummy, and my teeth very small, due to a combination of aggressive grinding... READ MORE

So I've been wanting braces since high school but have been seriously debating them for the past 2 years now. My top teeth are pretty straight minus a few little imperfections, but my bottom have some crowding (made worse by my wisdom teeth). I did a lot of research and decided to finally make... READ MORE
