A Day in the Life of a Teen Ballerina with Invisalign® Clear Aligners

I never thought I’d be a dance mom. I enrolled my daughter Ella in her first ballet class at the age of 3. It was a disaster. I was a little surprised when Ella asked to try dance again at the age of 10. We signed up for one class and that was it. She fell in love. Six months later Ella was joining the pre-professional ballet program at her dance studio. That was 3 years ago, and her life now consists of school and dance (plus piano and Spanish Club and youth group and volunteering). Being a teen is a busy time of life.

When Ella learned that she needed braces, she was concerned the impact they would have on her dance life. Choosing the Invisalign® treatment option means that Ella is still smiling on stage and not trying to hide her smile. Only Invisalign aligners are made with SmartTrack® material for a better fit, greater comfort, and more predictable tooth movement.* Hardly anyone notices that she’s wearing the Invisalign aligners when she is dancing.

(*compared to aligners made from off-the-shelf, single layer .030in material).

In addition to being practically invisible, Invisalign aligners make eating really easy by giving Ella the flexibility to eat whatever she wants by simply removing the aligners before every meal. Ella’s dance classes generally start around 4:30 PM and end around 8:30 PM most days of the week. Because we homeschool, the early start time usually is not too much of an issue except on days when Ella has her homeschool co-op class. Dinner is almost always on the go. That means the Invisalign clear aligners case is a must have in her dance bag. She can eat in between classes no problem while still transforming her smile up to 2x faster with weekly aligner changes compared to 2-week aligner wear.


We chose Invisalign treatment for Ella because it is the most advanced clear aligner system in the world. Wearing Invisalign clear aligners gives her the boost of confidence to improve her smile while still dancing her heart out on stage.
