Invisalign Vs Reveal Aligners

Are you looking for clear aligners but don't know which to choose? Do you want straight teeth but don't want to use traditional braces? We are here with the solution for you!

Invisalign and Reveal clear aligners are popular choices that many use to straighten their misaligned teeth. But which is the right option for you? Our guide today will tell you! We at Gorgeous Smiles believe everyone should have access to their dream smile; today, we will show you the differences between Invisalign and Reveal Aligners to help you see which is right for you.

What We Are Going To Cover:

Invisalign Vs Reveal Aligners: Treatment Approach

Invisalign and Reveal Aligners use a similar treatment plan, involving consultations with dental professionals and a tailored treatment plan to achieve your new smile.

Invisalign Treatment Approach

The Invisalign aligners treatment is broken into three steps:

Step 1 - Consultation

We begin with an in-person consultation to assess if Invisalign is right for you and discuss your dream smile. We create a 3D model of your smile and use SmileView to show you what your new smile could look like. Invisalign can help with crooked teeth, crowding, and some bite issues, making it easy for anyone to build their dream smile. You can make adjustments here, and once you are happy with your new smile, custom aligners will be ordered.

Step 2 - Treatment Begins

You will attend a second consultation when your aligners arrive. One of our CBD dentists will fit your aligners, check they are correct, and show you how to use them. They will explain your custom treatment plan to you and answer any queries. You will wear your aligners daily, changing them every two weeks. The aligners gently move your teeth into the desired position, creating your dream smile. You will attend check-ups every six weeks, where we will check your treatment plan, make adjustments where needed, and carry out any routine dental work.

Step 3 - Enjoy Your Smile

Once the plan finishes, you can enjoy your new smile! You must wear a retainer at night to prevent your teeth from moving and attend your usual dental check-ups every six months.

Reveal Aligners Treatment Approach

Reveal Aligners works in three steps, outlined below:
  • Step 1 - Choose your provider - find your nearby provider and book a free consultation to see your payment options, an evaluation, and a full dental record
  • Step 2 - Recieve your treatment - A personalised treatment plan is sent to your dentist after intraoral scanners are used on your records
  • Step 3 - Start treatment - Use your custom-fit aligners for twenty-two hours a day, changing them every two weeks as your teeth move into their new position
  • Step 4 - Retain your smile - Once your treatment ends, you will need to wear a retainer at night time to maintain your smile

Invisalign Vs Reveal Aligners: Treatment Duration

The treatment duration varies for both Invisalign and Reveal clear aligners, depending on the work required to achieve your new smile. As with all orthodontic treatment, you will be given a time frame, but it could change, especially if you don't wear your clear aligners daily.

Invisalign Treatment Duration

How long Invisalign takes depends on the work required to achieve your new smile. Invisalign can take three to eighteen months, with minor straightening taking three months and more complex cases over a year. During your consultation, an estimated time frame will be provided. To make this time frame accurate, follow your treatment plan carefully, using your aligners daily to see the desired results.

Reveal Aligners Treatment Duration

How long Reveal clear aligners take to work depends on the complexity of your case. On average, the clear aligners take six to twelve months to work, giving you a new smile in under a year. Simple cases, like minor straightening, will be achieved in a few months, whereas more complex cases will take longer. Depending on your needs and desired smile, you should be given a time frame during your consultation period.

Invisalign Vs Reveal Aligners: Technological Features

Both treatments offer technological features to move your teeth into their new position comfortably and safely. Reveal Aligners focus on comfort and maintaining your facial profile, while Invisalign seeks to address complex issues. Reveal Aligners offer fewer attachments than Invisalign. This makes them easier to maintain but reduces the concerns they can treat.

Invisalign Technological Features

Invisalign aligners feature several technological features to help you create your new smile. The three key elements are listed below:
  • SmartTrack Material - Uses gentle and constant force to move your teeth. The material helps to speed up treatment time, allowing you to see results quickly
  • SmartStage Technology - Programmes individual tooth movement simultaneously, helping us to predict your results and you to see them quickly
  • SmartForce Attachments - Helps your aligner deliver the results you want. Bite ramps, precision cuts, and a power ridge are some of the attachments and features we can use to help you achieve your perfect smile

Reveal Aligners Technological Features

Reveal Aligners use some technological features to create your perfect smile, listed below:
  • ClearWear Material - offers an invisible aligner you can wear anywhere without anyone noticing. It also provides precise force levels to move your teeth into their new position quickly
  • Facial Profiling - looks at your entire facial profile to ensure that your smile is moved correctly and safely without impacting facial bones

Invisalign Vs Reveal Aligners: Cost

The cost of both aligners is similar, with Invisalign offering more clear treatment plan options for you to choose from. You can also use payment plans for your aligner treatment, making the perfect smile accessible.

Invisalign Cost

The cost of Invisalign aligners varies, depending on your chosen plan and the required work. On average, Invisalign costs between $6,000 and $9,000, although plans start at $3,500. More details on prices can be found below:
  • Invisalign i7: $3,500 to $5,500
  • Invisalign Lite: $5,000 to $7,000
  • Invisalign Full: $7,000 to $9,000
Here at Gorgeous Smiles, we believe everyone should have access to their dream smile. We offer several payment plans, allowing you to spread the cost and making straight teeth more accessible. Why not book a consultation with us to discuss our prices and determine the available payment options?

Reveal Aligners Cost

Reveal Aligners cost between $3,000 and $7,000, depending on the treatment needed. You will be given a price when you attend your initial consultation. Depending on the dentist you choose, payment plans might be available, allowing you to spread the cost of your aligners to suit your budget. These plans might be subject to fees and interest; check this before progressing with the treatment.

Invisalign Vs Reveal Aligners: Customer Experience

Customers were impressed with both experiences, especially the in-person support and guidance. Customers found Reveal Aligners to be comfortable and that they did not irritate, ideal for daily wear. They did find that Reveal Aligners did not solve as many issues as Invisalign did due to the lack of attachments.

Invisalign Customer Experience

Overall, customers are happy with their Invisalign experience. Customers praised everything from the informative consultation to the results. They enjoyed seeing their new smile before treatment began and how easy the treatment plan was to follow. While the aligners can be uncomfortable, few customers find them painful, making them easier to wear. The plan was easy to incorporate into their daily routines, too, making them less likely to skip days and reduce the effectiveness of the treatment. A few customers did find that the treatment took longer than initially anticipated. While this can be a little frustrating, it only happens to a handful of customers, and with the support of our dental professionals on hand, they can identify the cause and get you back on track quickly. We have countless customers who are overjoyed with their new smile. Why not check out our before and after pictures on our site to see what new smile could be in your future?

Reveal Aligners Customer Experience

Customers were happy with their Reveal Aligners experience. They found the aligners extremely comfortable to wear and didn't cause any irritation to their cheeks or gums. Customers also noted how discreet the aligners were, allowing them to wear them to work or errands without anyone noticing. Some customers appreciated the lack of attachments, making them easier to maintain and use. This does mean they cannot treat bite issues as well as Invisalign, though, which was disappointing for some users. Customers did enjoy the in-person support, providing them with the advice and guidance they needed to complete the process.

Invisalign Vs Reveal Aligners: Customer Support

You get good customer support with both Invisalign and Reveal Aligners, but the regular check-ups vary with Reveal Aligners, depending on the dentist you choose. You get consistent six-weekly check-ups with Invisalign aligners, monitoring your progress and offering adjustments where needed.

Invisalign Customer Support

You get plenty of in-person customer support with an Invisalign treatment plan. Our dental professionals can answer your queries and provide support when needed. You will see someone every step of the way, from consultation to your aftercare appointment, ensuring that your plan is followed correctly, reducing its time, and providing the desired results. We will also see you at check-ups every six weeks, where we check your progress, make any adjustments, and carry out routine dental work. Alongside creating your new smile, we make sure it is healthy too. We will check for tooth decay, remove plaque-build, and provide cleanings where needed to maintain good oral hygiene and health.

Reveal Aligners Customer Support

Like Invisalign, your customer support with Reveal Aligners is through your dentist. They will offer an in-person consultation, providing information and guidance from the start. They will also offer regular check-ups throughout your treatment, advising and making necessary adjustments. How often these check-ups are will vary depending on the dentist you choose. With Gorgeous Smiles, you get appointments every six weeks, keeping you on track and ensuring adjustments quickly, making sure you achieve your perfect smile.

Invisalign Vs Reveal Aligners: Aftercare

The aftercare process with both Invisalign aligners and Reveal Aligners is similar, with a nighttime retainer and good oral hygiene being practised.

Invisalign Aftercare

Aftercare is a vital part of Invisalign. It ensures that your hard work is not undone and allows you to enjoy a happy and healthy smile. We provide you with a breakdown of your aftercare during consultations, but the guidelines can be found here:
  • You must wear your retainer at night to maintain your results
  • You must attend regular dental checkups and cleanings to maintain your oral health
  • You should avoid staining foods and drinks like berries, coffee, and wine as these can discolour your teeth
  • You must clean your aligners regularly to prevent bacteria and plaque from building up. Lukewarm water and a soft-bristled brush is the best method
  • You must rinse your aligners after use in lukewarm water
  • You must floss and brush regularly to ensure good oral hygiene

Reveal Aligners Aftercare

Aftercare is a vital part of Reveal clear aligners. You will need to follow the guidelines below to keep your new smile in place and healthy:
  • You must wear your retainer every night to keep your smile in place
  • You must rinse your aligners after every use
  • You must avoid toothpaste on your aligners, as this can scratch the retainer
  • You must floss and brush to ensure good oral hygiene
  • You must attend dental appointments every six months
  • You should avoid staining foods and drinks as they could discolour your teeth
