Frequently Asked Questions: Reveal™ Clear Aligners
Q: What are Reveal™ Clear Aligners?
A: Reveal™ Clear Aligners are an affordable, discreet way to straighten your teeth. The Reveal™ trays are noticeably clear and are guaranteed not to discolor, cloud, or yellow over the course of treatment. Reveal™ features a smooth and scalloped edge to maximize comfort. Plus, Reveal™ was designed to provide a truly intimate fit for tooth movement without the need for unsightly attachments.
Q: Will Reveal™ Clear Aligners be noticeable on my teeth?
A: Reveal™ Aligners are practically invisible and stay clear throughout treatment – no yellowing or staining. With Reveal™, you wear each tray for two weeks, and they are guaranteed to stay clear for the entire two weeks.
Q: Does Reveal™ Clear Aligners require attachments?
A: No, Reveal™ does not require attachments.
Attachments are tooth-colored buttons that are glued to the teeth in order to control tooth movement. Attachments can be an aggravation. They require time at the dentist’s office to place on the teeth, and some patients think they are unsightly.
Reveal™ was specially designed to eliminate the need for attachments. Reveal™ uses a unique material and manufacturing process that results in a secure fit to hug the teeth, resulting in tooth movement without attachments.
Q: Are Reveal™ Clear Aligners comfortable?
A: Reveal™ Clear Aligners have a smooth and scalloped edge that is designed to maximize your comfort. Reveal™ Aligners fit tightly, so you may feel some pressure. This is normal and necessary to move your teeth. If you experience significant discomfort, please contact your dentist immediately.

A: Reveal™ Clear Aligners are practically invisible, and they stay clear throughout treatment with normal use – no yellowing or staining.

Q: What is the process for getting Reveal™ Clear Aligners?
A: The process for getting Reveal™ Clear Aligners is simple. First you will get photos and impressions taken of your teeth, which your dentist will send to a lab. The lab will create your custom-designed aligner trays and send them to your dentist when ready. You will then visit your dentist to receive your Reveal™ kit. You will continue to visit your dentist periodically over the course of treatment to ensure your case is moving properly and for your dentist to check on your progress.
