Now let’s chomp some myths about clear aligners, shall we? 

Aligner Myth #1: Everyone will know I’m wearing aligners. 

SmileDirectClub aligners are clear and don’t require attachments or brackets, so it won’t be obvious that you’re even wearing them. Plus, our aligners have a slightly matte finish so they don’t reflect light. Chances are, no one will even notice you’re wearing them.

Aligner Myth #2: You’ll have to comply with food restrictions. 

Because clear aligners are removable, there are no food restrictions. You can eat whatever you want, even apples and popcorn. Just be sure to always remove your aligners before eating and drinking anything other than cool water. And always brush and floss after eating before putting your aligners back in.
