Invisalign has announced that they have reached five million smiles with the Invisalign clear aligner system.
This is a huge milestone for the clear braces system that has become the favored alternative to traditional metal braces.
“It’s very rewarding to see how rapidly Invisalign treatment is growing around the world. I can’t believe our first ‘million’ took ten years to achieve, while our fifth ‘million’ only took one year,” said Joe Hogan, president and CEO of Align Technology.
Five Million Invisalign Smiles
“To date, over 1 million teenagers have started orthodontic treatment with Invisalign clear aligners. The introduction of Invisalign Teen with Mandibular Advancement gives Invisalign providers even more confidence that they can deliver great outcomes and great treatment experience to teens in their practices.”
To mark this major milestone, Align Technology is reaffirming its previous commitment to help provide treatment to children around the world born with cleft lip and cleft palate, and will donate $1 to Operation Smile for every public share of a photo of a person’s smile on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #5MillionSmiles — for a total donation of up to $1 million.
The Five Millionth Smile Is…

Hadi’s Superpower: His Invisalign® Smile
Invisalign is a nearly invisible method of straightening your teeth and an alternative to traditional metal braces.
Invisalign patients are fitted with removable, see-through aligners that have been customized to fit their teeth. The aligners gradually cause your teeth to shift their position slightly over a period of two weeks.
After two weeks, you will receive a new set of aligners to be worn for the next two weeks. The aligners, which are removable, provide a number of benefits over traditional braces.
Because Invisalign braces are virtually invisible, no one may even notice that you’re wearing them.
