I’m so excited to get going with Invisalign and the dentist has nothing but great things to say about it. But I’m embarrassed to ask my dentist certain questions. Will I still be able to kiss while wearing Invisalign? Maybe it’s a dumb question, but it is very important to me.

Invisalign boasts one of the highest satisfaction rankings by patients. Your dentist probably told you how it works in half the time as traditional metal braces, is much more comfortable, and the best part is obviously it’s invisible. Now your question is a good one. Many dentists will tell you that no one will notice you are wearing Invisalign from a conversational distance. But kissing is obviously a little bit closer, to say the least. Your partner will be able to see them when going in for a smooch, but that is about it.
Invisalign clear aligners fit snugly over your teeth. They aren’t loose and shouldn’t be flopping around, even during kissing. That is, as long as the person you are kissing doesn’t generally kiss your teeth. LOL! Anyway, if you are self conscious for some reason about kissing with Invisalign, you can simply remove the aligners. The aligners simply pop in and out and are recommended to be removed for eating, brushing teeth, and if you feel better, for kissing too. Just remember that it is best to keep the aligners in for as much time as possible each day so that you achieve the desired results.
