Re: Invisalign attachments? Overall experience?

I know someone with attachments on the center of their front teeth and she says people always look at her funny trying to determine if she has braces or not...if an orthodontist could say if visible attachments were needed, I would probably end up going with metal so I could dip.

Hey Shea, welcome as well!

Maybe we could tell more if you were able to post photos of just your teeth and bite (not entire face)
