Reveal aligners are made of clear plastic and are virtually invisible when worn. The aligners are comfortable and do not contain metal wires or brackets like traditional braces.
What Are Reveal Aligners?
Reveal aligners work just like traditional metal braces but use clear plastic aligners instead of brackets and wires. The aligners fit right over your teeth and gently move them into position over time. Every two weeks, you switch out your aligners for a new set to continue your orthodontic treatment. Each set of aligners will work to move your teeth little by little until you achieve your desired smile.
Reveal aligners are transparent, so no one will be able to tell you are wearing braces! This makes them a popular choice for adults who want to straighten their teeth without the look of traditional braces. You can easily take them out for eating or drinking, but you should wear them for at least 22 hours a day to get the best results.
How Do Reveal Aligners Work?
Reveal aligners are clear plastic trays that fit over your teeth like a mouth guard. Each aligner is custom-made for your mouth and your goals, including the type of movement you'd like your teeth to make and how long you'd like to wear them.
The smooth plastic surface of Reveal aligners prevents irritation to your gums or cheeks. During your treatment, you'll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks. You remove them to eat, drink, brush, and floss before putting them back in to continue shifting your teeth into position.
Advantages of Reveal Aligners Over Traditional Braces
Reveal aligners are the best orthodontic solution developed especially for patients with all of their permanent/adult teeth, thus making it an excellent tooth-straightening solution for most teens. Its major advantages are the following:
- No metal brackets or wires to irritate your mouth
- You can remove the aligners while you eat, brush and floss your teeth
- You don't have to worry about food getting stuck in your braces
- Aligner trays are comfortable and smooth
- The clear aligner can be removable for special occasions
- They're easier and less painful than traditional braces
How Is Reveal Aligner Different From Invisalign?
Reveal aligners don't require buttons or attachments as Invisalign aligners do. They are created to guarantee the shifting of the teeth into the proper locations without using buttons or attachments. Besides, Reveal aligners are manufactured using ClearWear, which is made of phthalate- and BPA-free plastic. This proprietary process of manufacturing ensures the material's crystal clear clarity and exact fit. Unlike Invisalign aligners that can get stained if not cared for properly, the Reveal aligners are easier to maintain and are stain-resistant. Besides, along with having scalloped edges, Reveal aligners are also more comfortable to wear.
