byte® is an invisible braces company that allows consumers who need minimal to moderate dental alignment to receive treatment without ever having to visit a dentist or orthodontist.
byte's Smile Science technology was created by world-renowned celebrity cosmetic dentist, Dr. Jon Marashi, and designs a personalized smile, unique to you. The proprietary byte Aligner System also includes HyperByte™, which cuts treatment time in half and reduces any discomfort that can be associated with tooth movement during orthodontic treatment.
The majority of byte reviews reveal happy customers who have nothing but praise for the company and byte aligners. Customers were not only pleased with the treatment time, low cost, and straightforward process, but they also highly praised byte's customer service team. Many customers felt that the customer service representatives were responsive, personable, and knowledgeable. We believe customers can expect a positive experience when working with byte.
byte's invisible aligners are clear plastic devices custom made to fit your teeth. Over time, each clear aligner will gradually shift your teeth, so you have straighter teeth and a straighter smile.
Using the at-home impression kit, consumers will use a molding putty and trays to make the impression of their teeth, and then they'll send those teeth impressions back to byte using the supplied free pre-paid shipping box.
The molds from the impression you send back will generate an interactive 3D model of what your teeth look like, and what they will look like after treatment. Byte will then determine if they're a good candidate for an aligner treatment.
byte’s aligners are designed to help people who need minor to moderate alignments. If you have crooked teeth, crowded teeth, or simply need a minor bite correction, byte is an excellent option to get straight teeth.
If you're not a candidate for byte, the company will refund you the full price of the byte impression kit.
A licensed dentist or orthodontist will review the molds of the teeth and determine the best course of action. Customers who get approved will then receive their byte clear aligners a few weeks later. The plastic aligners are made of a BPA-free, highly transparent, medical-grade, polymer film. byte even boasts that its aligners are high impact, tear-resistant, and 88 percent more stain-resistant than other aligners.
byte also guarantees your smile for life. That means that if your teeth move out of alignment after going through the byte treatment, byte will cover the cost to straighten them, no questions asked.
Not only do other companies charge customers for retainers to keep their teeth straight, but most companies also lack a lifetime guarantee.
The HyperByte device is the company's exclusive dental movement acceleration device. High frequency vibrations or (HFV) uses soft micropulses that transmit through the roots of the teeth to the surrounding bone. According to byte, this type of therapy can reduce discomfort and will seat the aligners around the teeth. This will help cause better aligner traction, more accurate teeth movement, and much faster treatment times.
Research shows that this type of technology has been proven, and used for years by orthodontists selling it to their patients for as much as $900 a piece. Only byte includes this FDA cleared technology free for its customers.
The clear aligner system is not only less expensive than traditional braces, but is often also faster. Though the duration of treatment will vary case-by-case as the treatment program depends on several factors, including the extent of the individual customer's alignment needs, byte offers one of the quickest teeth straightening programs.
Consumers can also expect a faster treatment time if they're following byte's recommended guidelines:
Because of the company's HyperByte technology, customers typically finish the program in three months.
Very few invisible aligner providers include the value that byte does. byte offers free retainers to customers. Other invisible braces companies charge up to $99 for a pair of retainers that last only six months.
byte also includes a bottle of BrightByte 3-in-1 premium teeth whitening foam, breath freshener, and teeth aligner cleaner for free. Because teeth alignment requires customers to wear aligners all day, byte wants to help customers have a whiter, brighter smile at the same time.
byte recommends cleaning the aligners immediately after taking them out to prevent them from looking cloudy or discolored. However, byte advises customers to clean the aligners with the BrightByte whitening gel that acts as a teeth whitener/foam cleanser and not to use other whitening products as they can damage the aligners.
byte also offers free shipping both ways on all packages sent and received.
There are a few different payment options. Customers can pay the full cost upfront or they can choose a monthly financing option through bytepay™, byte’s all-new 100 percent guaranteed approval rate payment plan with no credit checks.
Unlike several other invisible aligner companies, byte offers multiple financing options that are inclusive to all financial situations to get the best possible monthly payment. Or customers can finance their invisible aligners through byte's financing partner, Affirm. byte accepts all major debit and credit cards including Care Credit.
Highlight: byte accepts multiple forms of payment, including dental insurance.
Customers can use their dental insurance, as well as their HSA or FSA debit card to pay for treatment.
Customers can also pay for their purchases with Splitit. Splitit is a global payment solution that allows shoppers to split the final cost into interest-free monthly payments. Currently, byte offers 3 or 6-month payment options with Splitit. There is no application process with Splitit; customers receive instant approval using their existing debit/credit card level.
byte now offers a treatment plan in which customers only need to wear their aligners at night. This is an notable and exciting new offering, as many consumers don't love having to wear their aligners throughout the day, including having to take them out and clean them anytime they eat or drink anything besides water.
These at-night aligners are made with a grind resistant polymer material and are slightly thicker than byte's day-wear aligners. Consumers who go with this Byte-at-Night option will need to wear their aligners a minimum of 10 continuous hours. This treatment plan also takes 2-3 months longer to complete compared to the all-day aligner plan. The at-night treatment plan is also slightly more expensive, costing a single payment of $2,295, or $99.56 per month (after a $449 deposit) if doing a monthly payment plan.
byte now offers a military discount of $150 off for all active and retired military, along with discounts for first responders, and college students.
The entire in-home invisible aligners industry is much cheaper than traditional metal braces, but there are price fluctuations within the industry itself.
Though byte's monthly payment plan and free products included in the overall package are advantageous, the company's prices are slightly higher than other companies in the invisible aligners industry.
However, the price difference may be inconsequential given the great financing options and additional value.

I tried SDC and failed with it because their customer service was terrible and the retainers were so thick, painful and the treatment was over a year to complete. After three years, I decided to try again but this time I tried Byte. I picked them mostly because I saw I could get a straight smile in 11 weeks. I am so far beyond impressed with Byte. My treatment plan is 11 weeks, I am able to talk with these retainers in (they are thinner), the discomfort isn't too bad and their customer service has been amazing! Their packaging is above and beyond and they offer great products to go along with your treatment plan such as whiting supplies, hyperbyte and more. I never once had a difficult experience with byte and I am beyond impressed and pleased. They make me feel like I am not doing this alone.

I absolutely loved - and still love Byte! Their team made sure that I had their support every step of the way. The process was quick, easy and affordable considering all of the sweet benefits! Even though my treatment is done, they managed to send me a free retainer and follow up post-treatment! Byte gave me my confidence at a price j couldn’t refuse.

We're so happy to hear you're happy with your results, Angelina! We've got you covered, always <3
Fantastic company, fantastic service, exceptional product!!! Excellent, seamless process to a beautiful smile.
This company is ver professional and very helpful
BASED SOLEY AND HIGHEST FOR LITERALLY THE BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVERRR! It’s one on one assistants to any question any time day or night! They check in often and have all of the answers always! Quick and easy THROUGH TEXT! Call or email! My experience so far has been handled by an actual case worker, the guarantee satisfaction, retainers for life! You just cant beat it!!! The daytime aligners are what I choose to get and for $83 a month! That’s it to get the smile Back that I endured years of braces for and thousands of dollars. That is a huge factor for me when choosing byte!!!! Several other friends are now very interested so I keep them posted on the news and sales! As well as HIGHLY SUGGESTING they visit the website and subscribe to emails! My byte advisor Tara has been SOOO AMAZING TO WORK WITH! I
I am almost 1/2 way through my treatment plan and excited for the end results. Everything has been very organized and easy to follow. The 1st week was uncomfortable wearing the trays but only mild discomfort since the 1st week.
I have a Long email trail with Byte, where I have tried for over FOUR MONTHS to get a solution to finalizing my treatment (My remaining 5 weeks). Byte keeps putting my case off, rarely answers calls and when Byte does finally answer, it’s always speaking to a different person who doesn’t know what they’re doing And aren’t in a position to do anything!!! Do not go with Byte! This company will get you half way to completion then drop you off even though you’ve paid $2,000 on services and product they ‘guarantee’
The entire process was easy and quick. There is great support if needed. Supplies come in to support your needs with easy to read instructions m. Everything is high quality and customer service is on top.
Customer service is amazing they really get you and I love my aligners! They are perfect for my smile because I am getting married this year and needed a quick and inexpensive fix! That’s exactly what Byte it’s for me!
I am really happy with how easy the process has been. I am 9 weeks in and have major changes in my smile! Thank you Byte!
I decided to try Byte and ordered my impression kit which came fairly fast. The instructions were very clear and the kit was easy to use. Sent my impressions back and next a representative from Byte reached out to me with a price and I processed my payment. It was easy and they helped me with everything. My liners arrived a few weeks later and I couldn’t be happier... I can already see the difference. I would totally recommend Byte to friends and family. I am 100% happy with my decision to use Byte. Thanks again for your excellent customer service and help with everything. You guys are great!!
I had a great experience with Byte right from the start! They were very quick in regards to responding to my questions and even texted me which was awesome as its easier and faster than email. I am very uncomfortable talking about my teeth because I am embarrassed but the staff were so nice and made me feel like they were actually almost as excited as I was. I really loved how quick everything was in regards to shipping and once I returned to molds they had my plan developed very quickly. The entire process was very user friendly and I was happy with the price point.
I’ve had a wonderful and easy experience with my treatment! The transition from one set to the next is extremely easy to follow with the packaging and the hyperbyte eases them in perfectly. I couldn’t ask for anything else. No real pain during the transitions and the best part is seeing a difference early on in the treatment. My top teeth are looking great and the bottom have made so much progress already.
Byte provides an excellent product and program at an exceptional price. Their cuatomer service has been excellent and personal and prompt. I recommend Byte to anyone interested in a beautiful smile.
Byte has great customer service and the instructions are user-friendly. I would recommend.
I like how helpful the customer service is.
So far so good. What I like is the fact that I could manage a monthly payment to get my teeth straight and a short amount of time. But I dislike about this is I wish it was a little more affordable. Larger discounts for missionaries students and other civil serving individuals who make little to no money who show proper documentation of being very active in the community would be great.thank you and God bless
They were very helpful in making sure I was always happy with what my teeth looked like. When I wasn't they sent me new impressions and then new aligners to fix what I wanted to fix. :)
Simple and Easy! I am in my 40s and finally have the time and money to straighten my teeth out again. Byte has been a great product and the process to get my aligners was simple and easy. My advisor answered all of my questions quickly and helped me take advantage of any promotions. I can't wait to see my new smile in a few months!
Very incredible and easy to use! Worth your money!
I like their direct, but simple approach. They have answered all of my questions and walked me through any part of the process I needed.
This is a wonderful service that was very easy to use and saved me a lot of money and hassle. I have always wanted to improve my smile but I was afraid of huge bills and frequent orthodontist appointments which I can't fit in my schedule. Byte made it very easy to understand both the treatment plan and my payment options. Highly recommended!
I'm so glad I decided to go with byte to fix my teeth! I explored so many different companies and ultimately ended up cancelling my orthodontist appointment to go with them. I had a major overbite and gap between my top and bottom teeth and had braces, retainers, headgear, you name it when I was a kid. Ultimately as an adult all my problems came back and I was getting really self-conscious about my teeth. I was worried byte wouldn't be able to fix my overbite since I considered it extreme, but trust me, if they can fix mine, they can fix anyone's! The process was a bit overwhelming since it's done all at home (they send you the molds and all your equipment), but it worked and in the time of COVID I'm really glad their system is built that way. I'm on my fourth week now (out of 15) and it's going really well! It's a bit of a pain to always have to take the aligners out to eat and drink (other than water), but that's how it would be with any aligner you choose, regardless of the company. I also had a lot of pain in the first week and was worried that it would continue for the next 14, but it went away after like 3 days and using the hyperbyte they send! So glad I went with byte, I can't wait to see how my teeth look at the end of week 15!!!
For years I’ve wanted to correct my smile and finally made the decision to do so. I’m half way through the process and I’m already getting compliments on my smile. :-). I would definitely recommend Byte to a friend.
Byte has helped me so much with working on my smile! The employees are great and helpful, the products are affordable, and their methods are amazing! Highly recommend!
I enjoy the simplicity of the whole molding process.
This really works! I was skeptical but hopeful about the timeline and am so happy with my teeth! It works people!
Easy to follow instructions, minimal discomfort, and immediate results.
Best decision I've ever made! Truly works and is so easy and fast! I've been so self conscious about my smile and byte has made it where I can smile without feeling embarrassed.
Quick answers via email or text. Great price. Shorter wait time than braces. Payment plans available. Had a friend that previously purchased, and he was very excited with his results. I am super excited to get my kit in the mail in a few weeks.
My 5 weeks with byte has been great thus far :). Signing up was a breeze and the rep was very nice as well. Would definitely get a friend to sign up!
Great experience!! Customer service is great and my aligners seem to be doing their job!!
I am loving my Byte aligners! I was counting down the days until they arrived. I can’t wait to see the difference these aligners will make. The product, presentation and service have been excellent.
Christopher James Walker
From the very beginning the Byte staff has been very attentive and encouraging to me and I feel the sense of one on one care which I really love. The aligners themselves are very high quality and I actually look forward to putting them in each night! I considered other companies but I am so relieved that I decided to choose Byte.
So easy to do! Customer service is amazing and fast to respond. No different than going to the ortho but so much easier!!
Manuel García Urreta
I never thought of using aligners before until my wife orders her starter kit from Byte. After seeing her experience I noticed how easy was to get the impression kit ready and get the first set of aligners in the mail. I'm now more than half the way on the treatment and the teeth on my upper jaw are looking great, the next step of the treatment will take care of the lower teeth.
With Byte, my favorite experience is the vibrating hyperbyte I use every night. It's like a light massage that tells me the night is starting. Putting in the retainer itself is also not a hassle and encourages good hygiene. What I like least about Byte is simply the work it sometimes takes to adjust the retainers. Sometimes I have to sand down some rough edges that cut into my tongue. But that can be fixed, and overall I am fine with the product.
The BYTE System has literally been a confidence booster. I struggled after having traditional braces and my teeth separating and my bite being off. I always longed for a straight beautiful smile and at 32, my dream came true. It makes me emotional to even think about because my teeth before BYTE made me extremely insecure. I feel like a new woman and all my friends and family have seen a huge change in my attitude and smile since having BYTE. I even had a Dental Assistant compliment my teeth! The customer support team was especially and adequately trained to be extremely helpful. Any time I had questions, concerns or wanted a revised plan for my teeth, they were exceptionally helpful, professional and courteous. I will always recommend BYTE to anyone needing help with their teeth!
I like that Byte is super personal- you never feel like you are a number or dealing with a robot i had a few small issues none ended up being anything big and it was resolved or dealt with immediately with care and i was checked back in to make sure it was good I am in week 7 and highly recommend
I love my Byte so far! They fit comfortably in my teeth & are already making a difference.
I love how the advisors are so nice. They answer all your questions to the best of their ability.
Byte has been nothing short of amazing. Customer service is 10/10. Product itself is amazing and I can see results each and every week.
Byte has been wonderful throughout the whole process. I received my impression kit very quickly and had my aligners made it less than the suggested time frame. I am now on my 8th set of aligners out of 15 and my smile looks AMAZING so far!! Thanks Byte!
So far I have had no issues in my byte journey. I can see my teeth moving back to where they were when I got my braces off and that makes me feel great. I would recommend this anyone with minor teeth issues that wants to perfect their smile.
Byte has been amazing so far! I just sent in my impression kit, which was such an easy process and they are getting started on my aligners. The staff has been soooo attentive, friendly, and patient, which really convinced me to purchase their product! Can't wait to get started!!
I'm currently on week 4 of the Byte system. Here are my pros and cons so far! Pros - I chose Byte over some of the other systems because I like knowing my treatment plan is supervised by actual Orthodontists. The price was competitive as well. - The system is very easy to use (as long as you're disciplined and stick to the instructions). - I've had very little discomfort so far, much less than traditional braces. This might be because of the hyperbyte technology? - I was impressed that I was seeing results already by week 2. - The trays really are invisible. Even when I point them out to people, they still can't tell. No changes to my speech either because they're just so thin. Cons - The molding process was difficult. It was really hard to remove the molds from my mouth at the end of the time period. - The trays are really difficult to remove. The include a small removal tool which helps but it gets slippery. The removal tool really needs to be designed so you can get a better grip with your fingers. - The foaming cleanser works well but has a kinda unpleasant aftertaste. Flavoring of some sort would be an improvement. Overall I'm really satisfied with Byte so far and I'm looking forward to my final results!
Byte has been nothing but supportive through my journey thus far. Week 5 and I can see and feel a great difference in my smile cant wait for finished product.

Great customer service! Affordable compared to competitors. Easy and effective treatment!
I love the Byte program. I am on week 7 and can see the change in my teeth; and I have never had to leave my house to see the dentist. The staff is super friendly and helpful. I am thinking of doing this for my sons too!!! I would highly recommend this company!!!
I am now half way through my treatment and couldn’t be happier! Everything has been super user friendly and easy. I can definitely see a change in my smile and look forward to the end results! I would definitely recommend byte to others!
