As the name suggests, you are going to be wearing trays to align your smile that are practically invisible. They’re clear. They’re slim. Most of the time, people aren’t going to stop in their tracks and notice that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. However, you know that Invisalign treatment trays are not actually invisible. As a result, you may wonder if there’s anything else you can do to make them less apparent. Good news: We do have some suggestions!
Do Keep Your Smile Clean
Yep, you’ll draw less attention this way. Stained Invisalign treatment trays, bad breath, and dirty teeth: Definitely going to draw the eyes toward your teeth!
Don’t Put The Focus On Them
Of course, we don’t think you’re suddenly going to pull your trays out of your mouth and wave them around as you talk. However, it is important to note that if you want your Invisalign treatment trays to remain inconspicuous, it’s probably best to keep them out of sight when they’re not in your mouth. Here’s what we mean:
- Don’t take them out in front of other people. Do so in privacy, so you’re not drawing attention to your treatment.
- Plan ahead. If you know you’re going to be doing something that will require you to remove them, make sure you have a course of action prepared (like taking them out in the bathroom when you arrive at a restaurant, instead of waiting until you’re at the table).
Downplay The Lips
Hopping on board with the latest lipstick trends is not going to help you any. Skip pigmented products and stick with clear balm until you’re through with your course of treatment, so you’re less likely to vividly frame the very thing you’re trying to hide.
