How do they shape your teeth? I went in and had an appointment but for some reason I don't think the aligners would be strong enough to move my teeth. Can you tell me how it shifts your teeth into place?

How Do Invisalign Aligners Work?
First of all - it takes extremely light force on a tooth to move it orthodontically. And the trays are way more durable than they look. You change the trays every 2 weeks and each tray is shaped a little bit different (a little more aligned) until the last tray is shaped like the end result you want.
