It’s one thing to chat with your dentist and look at some before-and-after pictures. But it’s another thing entirely once you’re wearing Invisalign’s aligners. And you might be wondering: what is Invisalign treatment like?
Aside from diving right in, the best way to assess Invisalign’s patient experience is by hearing it from current and former patients. Here’s the problem: unbiased, unsponsored online reviews are scarce. If you’ve spent hours scouring the Internet for verifiable reviews, we’ve got you. This is your go-to source for honest Invisalign reviews. No sponsorship, no actors — just real people and real opinions.

I do not see lot of progress. This was a big investment. I save a lot of money for this one. I was told to use metal braces. These work okay for me. I need more patience with my set. You cna see my progress at my bottom teeth. Good results. Some minor changes in the others. I think this price is too high for my results. Maybe some find better results. For me it is something I might not do again. But I am not mad. I just want perfect teeth like the movie stars.0Timmy M.Wisconson1 year agoTeeth Spacing
Invisalign is amazing. You get what you pay for. I have seen the bad reviews for other companies so I went with the top of the top. It was a long journey – 14 months for me. However, I got used to them after the second month and truly feel weird sometimes not having them in now. I can’t stress enough how good they worked for me. I would highly recommend – especially if you have a good and trustworthy ortho who has done this a lot. I think that makes all the difference. Also, don’t think your insurance won’t help. Mine did, not a ton of help, but every dollar counts!!!0Laura C.Minneapolis, MN1 year agoTeeth Crowding
I went with Invisalign because I needed ipr and the mail order liners don’t include that. I had overcrowding and was in a hurry to get my teeth straightened before my wedding. My teeth have been tracking exactly with the Clincheck so I feel that they are well qualified with teeth movement. The process has been very easy and wearing the trays is pretty simple with very little pain and discomfort. I’ve been very happy with the process.0Tyler B.Memphis, TN1 year agoTeeth Crowding
Okay, let me start off by saying that if you can’t afford to do the best of the best when it comes to clear aligners, stay away from the cheaper options and wait until you can. Based on my before and after pics, you will see that I didnt need a TON of movement. This is why invisible aligners were good for me. If you have a really, really, bad set of teeth then you need to go with traditional braces, really.
I have a friend that tried to do the invisible aligners with smile direct club for about half of what I paid ($6500). He ultimately spent more than I did because after that mess, he had to go get real braces. So, if you are like me (see pictures) and have good dental health and just need a little bit of movement, save up and do it right with Invisalign.0Flaviana D.Canada11 months agoTeeth SpacingTooth Gap
I chose this company because I’ve only heard good things about it. I started 4 months ago and so far it’s been perfect. I don’t have anything to complain about except the fact the first few days of a new tray are a bit rough but it’s normal. The customer support is always here in case I have a question or a recommendation. My advice would be to don’t be discouraged if you don’t see quick results because it takes time.0Natasha C.Minnesota11 months agoTeeth CrowdingOpen Bite
Chose Invisalign at orthodontics office next door to my TMJ pain management clinic because they work closely together. I have malocclusion, an open bite, and narrow arches that Invisalign is treating. I’m on tray 30 out of 81 so I am still in treatment.0Sarah N.Fremont, Ohio10 months agoCrossbite
I chose Invisalign because I used to be a smilelove customer and once they went out of business and I was unable to get refinements, I realized that while my teeth were straight there was still so much more work that needed to be done. My bite was horrible and I knew it was time to see an orthodontist.0Juan CarlosArlington9 months agoTeeth Crowding
I love Invisalign, this is such a great invention and it is very effective. My treatment is almost half way and I am so happy so far. No pain, no issues. I chose Invisalign because it is most famous one and my provider advised me to choose this brand. I am hoping to correct my teeth crowding, mainly in the bottom teeth. I have no experience with customer support. I did the impressions, but my dentist did it for me. I’d totally recommend Invisalign.0Natasha C.Crystal, MN4 months agoTeeth CrowdingSnaggletoothOpen Bite
I like Invisalign because the orthodontist is working directly with my TMJ doctor to ensure the process goes smoothly. I’m still in treatment but so far it’s going well.0Nikki S.New York4 months agoTeeth CrowdingOverbiteOpen Bite
Invisalign was the best decision I’ve ever made for my teeth! I never had braces and my teeth have shifted in my life and I really wanted to have a straight smile. I found an orthodontist who is a top provider, got scanned, and got started! Scanning for the trays is so easy! It’s a tool that scans your whole mouth electronically to send to Invisalign to create trays to make your new smile. You can eat and drink whatever you want after you take the aligners out. Then just clean them and brush your teeth and put them back in for 22 out of 24 hours each day! I love them!0Leslie H.Rapid City, SD4 months agoTeeth CrowdingOverbiteMidlineOverjet
I was hoping to correct crowding, overjet, overbite, and a smaller arch. I’ve done traditional braces before but had to stop treatment for a number of reasons – Invisalign has surpassed my expectations. I’m hardly in pain, I can talk and smile with confidence, and the results are already great. I’m only halfway through, and it’s already showing results. Teeth scan was uncomfortable but nothing like impressions. Aligners came back quickly!0Kate B.Ambler, Pennsylvania4 months agoTeeth CrowdingSnaggletoothOverjet
I chose to get Invisalign after my teeth had shifted considerably. I had braces as a kid and got away from wearing my retainers. I looked at multiple clear aligner companies but went with Invisalign due to its history and because a well respected orthodontist in my area uses them exclusively and offers a great price. I wanted a tried and true method and to be observed by an experienced orthodontist. Everything has been great so far. I’ve been well supported and would recommend Invisalign to anyone. I think good dentistry is worth the price.0Leticia O.Stow, OH4 months agoTeeth CrowdingTeeth SpacingCrossbite
I chose Invisalign over other clear slingers because I knew an orthodontist would be able to see me in person to check my progress and see me for any emergencies that may arise. I’ve also heard how other clear slingers can leave your teeth worse than before so I chose Invisalign which has been around for much longer. I have overall loved the experience!
I still have 2 months to go but I have seen so much change. The best part is not having metal braces and having to have them tightened every month. I’m also an adult and I don’t have to look like a child wearing braces. I would definitely consider Invisalign to those who qualify for it. I had braces when I was younger but my teeth crowded up again after losing my retainer. My teeth shifted much faster with Invisalign and with almost no pain and discomfort.0Emily H.Atlanta GA4 months agoTeeth CrowdingOverbite
I have been wanting to mainly fix some crowding with my bottom row of teeth for some time now. I had braces as a kid and as I have grown, my teeth shifted and crowding became worse. I started my journey with Invisalign back in January and am currently on tray 16. So far the process has been fairly easy and I have been switching to a new tray once a week. Scanning was super easy at the beginning and I was just re-scanned to assess how well my teeth have already moved.
So happy I went with Invisalign, as most people can’t even tell when I have my aligners in place and they barely show up in photos. I am already so pleased with my results and can’t wait to see the final product!0Danica C.Saint Johnsbury, Vermont3 months agoTeeth CrowdingOverbiteOverjet
I had been self conscious about my smile all of my life. I should have had braces as a teen, but it was not in my family’s budget. I am getting married in October of 2021 and I decided to finally get a smile I love before my wedding. My main concern was crowding and over jet. I read other reviews about clear aligners and decided to go with Invisalign through a local orthodontist. The impression process was very quick and easy. The tech took a digital impression of my teeth to send to Invisalign and then I received my aligners in about 4 weeks.
I have attachments (or buttons) on most of my teeth, which make the aligners a little more noticeable than I would have liked, but the attachments help move the teeth more efficiently. They are still far less noticeable than traditional braces and most people don’t even notice I have them until I mention it. The first week was rough. I had an extremely hard time getting the aligners off of my teeth because of the attachments.
Once you get the hang of it the process becomes much more manageable. I can now pop my aligners out in a few seconds. I change my trays once a week and my teeth are usually sore the first day of a new tray. For me it is very manageable with Tylenol. I am only 13 weeks in of my initial 30 trays and I LOVE the results I see so far. My top front teeth were the ones I have always been the most self conscious about. They already look so much better! I don’t have insurance and am paying out of pocket. The price for me was pretty steep at $7500.
My orthodontist allows me to make monthly payments that are manageable for me. The price includes my initial treatment, all my office visits, and refinements if needed. Overall, I feel it is worth it to be confident in my smile. I highly recommend Invisalign through an experienced orthodontist!0Valentina T.Norfolk3 months agoTeeth SpacingTooth GapOverbite
I have been very unhappy with my smile for a very long time. I would always hide my smile because I didn’t want anyone to see the gaps that I had. I was born without my lateral incisors so basically I have two missing teeth which has created large spacing through my smile. I have always been so insecure and as I’ve gotten older it has gotten worse because I always wish I could have fixed my teeth when I was younger.
Now that I’m my own adult I’ve looked into so many options and didn’t know that Invisalign was something I could do. Turns out that Invisalign really can fix anything!! I’ve made so much progress in a short amount of time. If you look at my before and after pictures you can see that my front two teeth are coming closer together and the rest of my teeth are being pushed back to create a space for implants. It has definitely exceeded my expectations because I didn’t expect these type of results especially so quick. Everyone was really great and supportive and there for me if I had any questions.
I really recommend anybody to try any type of clear aligners because there really isn’t a limit on what they can and can’t do. As the spaces for my implants have been forming I thought that it would be another hurdle and insecurity to deal with such huge gaps. Luckily, they filled in the gaps with a wax to make it look like a complete smile. That way I do not feel embarrassed or feel uncomfortable and instead feel more confident until I’m able to get my implants which I think is great. So there are a lot of options in a lot of ways that people can get what they need done and have it done right!0Stephanie K.Lakewood CO3 months agoTeeth CrowdingOverbiteMidline
I was told by a few different dentists that I had TMJ and an overbite slightly from that. I also grind my teeth at night and my enamel was wearing off so the aligned would help train my jaw to separate my teeth from grinding and my jaw to go back to being aligned straight again.
I chose my dentist and this company because my dentist was an acclaimed Invisalign expert and he has a patent on modifiers that are added into my trays to help my jaw, where I can’t get that anywhere else. The process for getting the best results and proper treatment was much more through than a mail at home kit. It is much pricier than other companies but I can already feel my jaw alignment has changed in a few weeks alone. I can see and feel progress in my jaw especially.0Allan L.USA3 months agoMidline
I had braces when I was younger but wasn’t the best with the retainer upkeep. Over time my teeth started to shift and I wasn’t 100% happy with my smile anymore. I decided to get Invisalign because I heard it was the preferred brand for clear aligners. For some reason I ended up with Invisalign Express even though I thought that I had the full Invisalign package so I felt somewhat mislead there although I cared more about the end result versus the number of trays I had to wear so if 10 was all I needed than fine.
The end results are about 95% perfect. The bite is more natural and the midline is aligned. There is still some slight impact on the sides but my orthodontist said that was the most Invisalign could fix and that I didn’t need a refinement even though I asked. All in all I would say this met most of my expectations although I feel that if I had the full Invisalign package versus just getting the Invisalign Express option, I would have more perfect results.0Loreana S.San Jose, California3 months agoSnaggletoothOverbiteCrossbite
It has been a long process though, I am happy with what he has achieved so far. It is not painful at all. It is very aesthetic, and it must be quite constant.0Alexandra F.Sandwich2 months agoOpen Bite
Do not use this company! they are a complete scam! I have been trying to transfer my account for over a month. I have been calling to ask why this is taking so long and have gotten no information or progress. I am in chronic pain from an open bite and every day I don’t receive treatment is another day I cannot eat/chew, sleep from the pain or live a normal life.
It has been 2 months since my previous Orthodontist, Dr. Ryan, denied me medical treatment and a refund of my money that I paid in full. Her office manager screamed at me and said “we’ll see how things go for a month” when I told him my aligner wasn’t seated right. I received a phone call from the Orthodontist I am trying to transfer to, Mashpee Ortho, Dr. Nick, saying that “because I called and asked questions to Invisalign, that my transfer has been shut down by Invisalign.” I am filing a report to the FTC Friday afternoon at 12 PM for this incompetent, pathetic excuse for a company for taking my money, refusing to transfer me, denying me access to treatment and not giving me any information on why this is being done to me.
I am in contact with a medical malpractice lawyer who has recommended I suing you for not only my money back, but also for the physical and emotional damages that Invisaligns’ behavior has caused me. I am insisting my transfer be completed and my money be returned to me immediately. Patient ID 134900000
