Yes, you read that right. As the name suggests, nobody, not even you would know if you have anything in your mouth, while you can smile all you want

What is Invisalign?

Invisible braces, Invisalign or Clear path aligners are custom-made clear plastic trays that are used to correct mild to moderate spacing or mal-alignment of the teeth.

The best part is unlike the traditional braces they are removable. You can take them out while eating and brushing hence, they are very comfortable. Moreover, they tend to correct your smile in a much shorter period.
