Teeth Whitening for Invisalign Patients
Patients who are interested in Invisalign clear aligners are often also seeking to whiten their teeth for the ultimate perfect smile. At Caudill Orthodontics, we are not only the only orthodontist in Brevard County, Florida with the Invisalign® Diamond and Invisalign® Teen provider designation, but we also provide teeth whitening to our orthodontic patients.

One of the main questions that Dr. Ryan Caudill and Dr. Angela McNeight are asked in terms of whitening is “Should I whiten my teeth before, during, or after my Invisalign treatment?” They will reveal the answer and some reasons in this blog.

As a part of many Invisalign patients’ customized plan, tiny attachment bumps are added to the teeth, as they help to clear aligners to adhere and set the right pressure to gradually move the teeth into place. However, it is still possible to whiten your teeth during Invisalign treatment as the whitening goes inside your teeth and is not affected by the attachments. 

Dr. Ryan Caudill shares, “You are welcome to whiten your teeth with our safe and effective whitening gel either during or after your Invisalign treatment. Many enjoy seeing their new smile shine bright at the end of treatment!” 

As you may have guessed, we recommend that cosmetic whitening is done after traditional braces if you decide you would like braces instead of Invisalign. Whitening can be the perfect topper to your new smile! Feel free to ask our doctors and team about it at your next appointment!
