Will Spacing Added Before Invisalign for Overcrowding Be Noticeable?

I was told that I need small spaces to be made in order for invisalign to correct my crowding. Will this spacing be noticeable to people?

It is hard to say, if they will be noticeable or not. Defiantly ask. Also ask if they will be giving you a retainer to hold your teeth there while waiting for the trays. The reason is b/c once spaces are created where they weren't before teeth can drift and your first tray many not fit as well or as comfortably as if you had a retainer to hold you until your trays come.

All that said, what was recommended to you is not something I ever do. Not because it is wrong, it is just out of my comfort zone. It is an excepted and practice way to use Invisalign.
