How Long Does Invisalign Take to See Results?

July 6, 2022

Everyone wants straight, beautiful teeth–but many believe that they don’t have the time for treatment. Metal braces seem uncomfortable, inconvenient, and time-consuming. Luckily, Invisalign makes achieving a perfect smile easier than ever. If you’re considering aligners you might be wondering, how long does Invisalign take to see results?

The Treatment Process

During Invisalign treatment, you will wear custom aligners that are made from smooth and invisible plastic over your teeth. The treatment works by slowly moving your teeth into the optimal position, making small changes over time. The aligners are worn for about two weeks and then replaced until the final result is achieved. 


Every patient is different, so the timeline of how fast Invisalign will work depends on the individual. In general, you can expect the average treatment time to last anywhere from 12 to 18 months. Initial results may be apparent within three months. If more than five months have gone by and you haven’t noticed a difference, then you should schedule a follow-up appointment with your dental provider. This will help ensure that the treatment is working and you’re on track to achieve a healthier smile.

The best way to guarantee that Inivsliagn will work quickly is to follow the dentist’s instructions and wear the aligners for a minimum of 20 hours a day. Only remove your Invisalign trays to brush your teeth after a meal and before bedtime. Otherwise, you’ll delay the straightening process. How long Invsalign takes may depend on other factors out of your control, such as your age and the type of dental issue you’re correcting.
