What is an attachment?

Most dentist-provided aligner systems require attachments or “buttons” that are glued to your teeth. Attachments can be an aggravation.

Reveal was specially designed to eliminate the need for attachments, using a unique material and manufacturing process that results in a secure fit to hug the teeth, resulting in tooth movement without attachments.
