Invisalign Good Alignment Tray Clearness
Based on ratings published by trusted online review sites as well as information from Invisalign's website, Invisalign performs average to better than average in terms of alignment tray clearness compared to other invisible brace systems.
Based on a review posted on obsessedbyportia.com, Invisalign was rated as fairly average for alignment tray clearness relative to competing at-home teeth correction services. Check out the entire review here. From this review:
Invisalign is a clear, aligner-based orthodontic treatment option for patients that would like to straighten their teeth or correct their bite without the use of conventional metal braces. Also, Invisalign aligners are removable and practically invisible, thus preventing food getting stuck during eating as would happen with metal braces. Being able to use clear trays hides the fact that you are going through orthodontic treatment and doesn’t interfere with your social life.
