6 Benefits of Byte Invisible Braces Sure to Make You Smile

Last Updated February 2024

By now, you’ve likely heard about invisible braces. They’re a low-profile alternative to expensive and uncomfortable metal braces and, as the name suggests, they’re nearly invisible so you don’t have to be embarrassed to wear them out.

Byte Invisible Braces have made their name in the invisible braces space by offering fast treatment times (as little as four months!). But that’s not the only thing leaving Byte customers flashing their pearly whites. Here are six more benefits you’ll enjoy with Byte:

1. You never have to go to a dentist or orthodontist.

Many people avoid investigating invisible braces because they don’t want the hassle of another trip to the dentist. Byte gets this and has created a 100 percent virtual evaluation and setup process that lets you take your own teeth impressions at home and avoid the dentist entirely. A licensed dentist or orthodontist in your state still reviews your case and designs an appropriate treatment plan, so you can have confidence the braces will achieve the results you want.

2. Byte will deal with your dental insurance company.

Trying to find out if your dental insurance will cover all or part of your invisible braces is another headache that keeps people from getting started, and with good reason. If you’ve ever tried to get clear answers about coverage from your insurance provider, you know that answers don’t always come easy—if you get a clear answer at all. Luckily, Byte has partnerships with several major insurance providers such as Aetna and Anthem and they’ve got lots of experience investigating coverage options whether in-network or out-of-network for the different phases of the invisible braces treatment process. 

Simply upload a copy of your insurance card via the Byte website and one of their insurance specialists will get to work looking at your options for subsidizing the cost of invisible braces through your insurance. Byte will then send you an email summarizing their findings so you can evaluate their price plans knowing how much, if any, insurance will cover, before you spend a dime.

3. You can wear Byte aligners only at night.

While invisible braces are much less noticeable than the terrifying metal braces of old, many people would prefer not to wear invisible aligners in their normal day-to-day. Most invisible braces plans demand that you wear the aligners for 22 hours a day, only taking them off for brushing, meals and other essential activities. For those who want to restrict their treatment time to off-hours, Byte can create a plan where you only need to wear the aligners for 10 hours continuously, making it easy to wear them through a good night’s sleep (plus some at-home time for those of us that can’t count on 10 hours of sleep every night). 

4. They’ll tell you if they can’t help.

Not everyone is a great candidate for invisible aligners. Certain teeth alignments and things such as dental implants can make at-home invisible alignment more challenging. So how will you know if you’re even a candidate for invisible aligners? Byte will refund the cost of your impression kit and initial evaluation if it turns out your teeth aren’t well-suited for invisible aligners.

5. You can see your future smile before you even start treatment.

Any cosmetic changes to your appearance can be scary. You know you aren’t happy with how your teeth look right now, but how can you be sure you’ll like the changes you make? Byte takes the impression of your teeth and your input on the changes, and generates a three dimensional (3D) model of what your smile will look like after treatment with their invisible aligners. Of course, results can vary and may not look exactly like the rendering, but it’s at least a tangible visualization of how your smile will look before you commit to the treatment.

6. You can finish treatment faster.

After you send in your impressions and they develop a treatment plan for you, you’ll receive 15 weeks worth of aligners designed to move you gently toward the final goal alignment via 15 separate aligners that you wear for seven days each before reassessing your progress. While you complete monthly progress check-ins, having a batch of 15 aligners out of the gate lets you get going and keep going with your alignment. And, because the initial and subsequent evaluations are handled virtually through the My Byte app instead of dentist appointments, Byte alignments can be completed in as little as four months.

They also provide a HyperByte device for free that can help speed alignment. This device is similar to expensive devices sold by orthodontists that use micropulses of ultrasonic vibrations to reach your teeth’s roots and help settle them into their new orientation guided by the aligners. In addition to hopefully accelerating the process, the HyperByte can ease some of the discomfort some people feel when using invisible braces to adjust their smile.

Are Byte clear aligners right for you?

Hopefully, these lesser-known aspects of Byte’s clear aligners treatment piqued your interest and cleared up some common misperceptions that keep people like you from finding out if invisible braces can help. 

If you’re curious to learn more, Byte has a quick-and-easy 30-second quiz that can help you decide if Byte is a good fit. If you’re a candidate, you can order an impression kit and get your initial evaluation to find out how long treatment should take and to see a 3D rendering of how your new smile will look before you get started.

Right now, Byte is discounting their impression kit to $29.95 (normally $95), and they’ll refund that money if they determine you’re not a good candidate for Byte after all. And even if you are, there’s no obligation to purchase the treatment plan once you see the potential results.
