Can exxis retainers change the alignment of uneven teeth after braces? Would getting braces again be a better option?

If the tray delivered is not the EXACT shape of your teeth and their alignment, then it is not a retainer. Retainers ONLY retain (hold position). Otherwise, you essentially have a "single tray Invisalign case".
There are many ways to move teeth, and when done essix retainers are usually a great way to retain the new positions.
