Dating can be one of the most nerve-wracking aspects of adulthood, and adding an uncertain factor like Invisalign is tough. However, with the right mindset and a little preparation, your dating life doesn’t need to grind to a halt. You can still turn on the charm while undergoing orthodontic treatment.

If you want to be more confident in your dating life while wearing Invisalign, continue reading.

Hardly Anyone Will Notice

One of the big perks of Invisalign treatment is its discreet nature. Once the aligners are snapped over your teeth, they become hard to see without getting close. This should give you some confidence while going on dates as you won’t need to worry about metal brackets or wires cramping your style.

Take Your Aligners Off Before a Meal

Another great feature of Invisalign aligners is that they’re removable. This means that you don’t have to be choosy when it comes to location on dinner dates. However, it does mean you need to plan ahead a little bit. Your aligners need to be worn for at least 22 hours per day, which gives you a small window to eat.

Keep Your Invisalign Clean

If you’re hoping for more intimate moments during your dates, you need to ensure your aligners are clean. If plaque or bacteria build up in or around the plastic, it can lead to unpleasant smells and discoloration.

Use a mild, colorless hand soap and soft brush to clean all the surfaces of your aligners after meals. At the very least, rinse them off with cold water when brushing isn’t an option. This will help keep your Invisalign clear and your breath fresh.

Be Open and Confident with Invisalign

Confidence is attractive! Ultimately, honesty is the best policy when it comes to your Invisalign treatment. If you’re worried about how a potential partner might react to your aligners, tell them upfront.

This will not only start a dialogue that could lead to an interesting conversation but also showcase your confidence. In addition, it will demonstrate that you’re willing to talk out your issues in a relationship (a definite green flag).

Dating with Invisalign may require a bit of adjustment, but it shouldn’t hold you back from enjoying romantic experiences. By being open, confident, and prepared, you can navigate the dating scene with ease while going through Invisalign treatment. Your smile is just one aspect of who you are, and a good partner should appreciate the whole package—aligners and all.
