Introduction: What are Clear Aligners and How Do they Work?

While we will cover are clear aligners the same as Invisalign, firstly what are clear aligners and how do they work?

Clear Aligners are a type of orthodontic treatment that is used to help straighten teeth and improve the patient’s smile. It is made from a clear, plastic material that is shaped with traditional metal braces to hold the teeth in place.

Clear Aligners are not visible from the outside and they can be removed for eating or brushing your teeth. They also have a variety of advantages over traditional braces such as being less noticeable, being more comfortable on sensitive teeth, and helping avoid jaw issues.

Do you want total control over your smile without having to worry about what others might say? Clear Aligners could be the perfect solution for you!

Clear Aligner vs. Invisalign; Which is Better for You?

Clear aligners have a number of advantages over Invisalign. Here are just a few:


One of the most common questions asked by first-time users is “the clear aligners vs Invisalign price.” The starting price for Beam clear aligners is $2,149 while Invisalign tends to cost between $6,000-$9,000 in Australia. So, Beam clear aligners are the more budget-friendly option. 

Dental Visits

Clear aligners are entirely remote and do not require in-office dental visits. This saves you considerable time throughout your treatment.

Aligner Thickness

The aligner thickness is another unique difference between Beam clear aligners and Invisalign aligners. The materials we use to make our clear aligners are slightly thinner than that of Invisalign. So, clear aligners may be less visible, and you can wear them anywhere without anyone knowing. 


Beam and Invisalign aligners are not produced with the same materials. Beam clear aligners are currently produced with light Zendura FLX materials that produce higher comfortability.
