become invisible braces are tight-fitting, custom-made clear plastic trays that gradually shift your teeth to their desired position to achieve your award-winning dream smile. It sure sounds easy but what is it like to use become every day? We’ve broken it down for you:

Bye bye clinic visits

Dentophobia – aka fear of going to the dentist is a real thing, and we understand people who have that fear. That’s why become was designed to skip those visits.

Our invisible braces are developed by a leading global manufacturer with 10 years of R&D experience to bring you comfortable, yet premium invisible braces sent directly to your doorstep. Your progress is also supervised by orthodontists remotely so you don’t even have to meet them. 

This direct to consumer model helps us save on expenses such as operational costs for clinics and also cuts out the middlemen selling you the invisible braces. With all these saved expenses, we pass on the savings to you – so teeth straightening is now even more affordable!

You’ll (sorta) see into the future

Wonder what your teeth will look like when you’re done with your treatment? Don’t have to wonder further – we’ll show you!

When you send us an impression of your smile, our orthodontists at the labs will review the impressions and create a 3D model of your current smile and your new smile – so you can see what it’ll look like before you start your treatment. With this, you only commit to paying for your invisible braces if you’re satisfied with the smile preview. That’s why we’re really 100% commitment-free!

Meeting your invisible braces

You’ll basically wear your invisible braces every moment of every day and night for a minimum of 22 hours. The only time they’ll be taken is out is when you have meals and drinks. That’s how often you have to wear them – but don’t worry, you’ll get used to it!

Your invisible braces are transparent and clear – so no one can see them. They work silently to help you get your dream smile.

Although it’s important to take note that whenever you’re not wearing your invisible braces, you’re letting your teeth shift back to their old position. Wear your invisible braces as instructed for the best results. 

Rinse and repeat

Remember when we mentioned that you have to take your invisible braces out before you start eating and drinking? But, when you slide them back in – you’ll need to rinse them to keep them clean and transparent.

This will be part of a routine for you during your treatment. It seems like a hassle but it’s very important that you do not skip this step.

You’ll be watching the calendar

You will have to change your invisible braces pair every two weeks as you won’t be wearing the same pair throughout your entire treatment. 

Remember to keep track on the calendar as changing out your invisible braces at the right time is important to ensure that the treatment progresses smoothly and you get the best results.

Pain is part of the process

While you are wearing your invisible braces, you may experience some discomfort and pain. It is totally normal. 

This is because the aligners move your teeth and your teeth don’t like being shifted around. But the pain is good. It means that your aligner treatment is working – after all the common saying is no pain, no gain.

However, if the pain continues to worsen – please reach out to our smile consultants and they’ll be happy to help.

Meeting your after-treatment BFF – Retainers

Once you’ve completed all your invisible braces sets, you will be given a pair of retainers to wear. We know it’s tedious having to wear another contraption in your mouth even after you’re done with your become treatment but this is crucial!

Without reminding your teeth to stay put, they’ll shift back to their old position, thus changing your smile back to the old one.

For the first 6 months after your aligner treatment, you’ll be wearing your retainers all the time. After that, you will only need to wear your retainers at night.
