The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the world to slow down in a lot of ways, but not when it comes to dating! After everyone was forced to isolate for a few months, memberships on sites like Match, OkCupid, eHarmony, and Tinder surged as people sought ways to connect virtually. Of course, having a straight and confident smile is one of the best things you can bring on any date, but what if your teeth are noticeably crooked? You don’t want the first thing that the other person notices about you to be a mouthful of braces, right? Thankfully, Invisalign can help you enhance your smile and make the right first impression at the same time. Read on below as we share more about the benefits of dating with Invisalign.

“Treatment…What Treatment?”

Everyone wants to look their best on a first date (or any date for that matter), and this remains true even in the age where most “meet-ups” are happening via Zoom. With braces, your date will instantly know that you’re undergoing orthodontics, but Invisalign trays practically disappear the moment you place them on your teeth. With them, your date will simply notice your smile and outfit (or more likely, just your shirt!), ensuring everything starts on the right foot.


Because Invisalign is removable, you can simply take it out for a couple of hours for your date and put it back on afterward. This flexibility can quell any nerves you might have about the other person noticing your trays, and you can trust that having them out for a little while won’t negatively affect your treatment. You can sit back, relax, and (hopefully) have a great time without spending a moment worrying about your teeth.

Nice & Kissable

If you decide to meet up with someone in person, and things go really really well, you don’t have to worry about Invisalign interfering with your goodnight kiss. The smooth plastic will ensure that neither you nor your date will feel your trays during the special moment. You can trust Invisalign to sit comfortably against your lips and not slip out of place, allowing for the moment to be memorable and romantic instead of awkward.

And, as the weeks and months go on, you can trust that Invisalign is continuing to make your smile look better and better, which is great news whether you’re going on a first, second, or third date! Now, you can get the treatment you need without affecting your personal life in the process, allowing you to make the most of this strange time.
