byte® is an invisible aligner 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 orthodontic treatment.
The majority of byte reviews reveal happy customers who have nothing but praise for the company. 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, the clear aligners will gradually shift your teeth, so you have 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 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 the product.
byte is 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.
If you're not a candidate for byte, the company will refund you the full price of the 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 clear aligners a few weeks later. The 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.
HyperByte 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.
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 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 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.

The whole process has been super easy. Once I got my kit to make the molds, it was about 3 weeks till production time. The byte team was helpful and informative along the way. I really appreciated the updates via text and email. Kim was my personal advisor and she was really helpful. I’m not sure I can wait the 4-6 weeks for my aligners to be produced!!!
I am 33 years old and finally able to make the desired changes to my smile. I did my research on adult braces but quickly decided that was not the route for me. I saw and add for Byte on Facebook and order my impression kit. Working with the Byte team has been a dream! They are very hands on and so nice! I look forward to receiving my retainers and to showing off my new smile thanks to Byte! Do your self a favor
Extremely helpful staff! Everyone was quick to answer my questions and to provide me the help I needed! Love this company!!
I am just getting started on the Byte journey, but everyone has been so kind and helpful. It is great that there were so many options for payment. My advisor was very personable. I would definitely recommend to someone else.
The overall experience is very good. Customer support is very responsive. I am not quite done with the treatment and I already see results with straighter and whiter teeth.
I applied for care credit and couldn’t figure out their website. Byte text me through it and helped me process my payment and put me one step closer to my new smile! Such amazing customer service!
Customer service is unmatched! You feel like you have a best friend helping you after you complete each step of the process! Transparent pricing and processes!
Ever since I ordered my impressions kit, customer service has been checking on me and asking about the process, making sure everything was going alright. I really appreciate this and the people doing are so nice and personable. I haven't received my aligners yet and I'm already so excited. Thank you Byte!

Loving the overall experience, hands on customer support and general process so far with BYTE! The cost, flexibility, life-guarantee, teeth whitening included, night time aligner option and general tech-friendly approach had me sold from the beginning! I have finished my profile and ordered my aligners, now i can't wait to see my smile transformation!

Our care team does just that- we CARE! We're here for you every step of the way, Nadia!
I just started my journey with Byte & have had nothing less than seamless a & great experience. The impression kit only took two days to arrive & I had my results if I was a good fit or not in less than 1 week!!! The customer service reps are also wonderful!! They’re there for you every step of the way & are so kind! Highly recommend!
So far, 2 hyperbites have malfunctioned on me. My teeth are still not straight after my 14 week plan, so now I have to get a whole new set of aligners. Through the process, the customer server has been great, but the products are cheap and I was given false promises about the time frame.

Hi Robert, thank you for sharing your feedback with us! It is not uncommon in any orthodontic treatment to need refinements- our clinical team understands that life happens, and every patient's anatomy is different. That's what our byte for life guarantee is for! We're happy to work with you to get you the smile promised. As for your HyperByte, our care team is happy to take a further look. We'd love for you to reach out so that we can get started!
I love byte’s customer service and the easy navigation online. You can see your teeth move and see what they would look like after byte! There is also the smile guarantee which is a good thing if your teeth move after the aligners. Overall I would recommend for anyone who is insecure about their teeth.
I am happy with the process it has been easy to follow all the steps send it in they reach out quickly and you have one rep helping you the entire time
Everything has been quick and easy! The at-home impression kit was super easy to use and very convenient. After only 5 weeks I can see my teeth are starting to get straighter. Not only are my teeth getting straighter but with brightbyte my teeth are getting a lot whiter! Follow the guidelines and everything should be smooth sailing. Would definitely recommend to a friend!
Everything was well explained and easy. Everyone has been so helpful and amazing! Thank you so much!
Perfect customer service, in-depth instructions, and very simple process!
I’m 66 years old and have hated my crooked teeth my entire life. I thought I was too old to do anything about it but was assured by a very professional staff that I was a good candidate for treatment. I’m so glad I decided to take the leap and choose Byte! So far my treatment plan is going very well, and I can’t wait to smile with confidence after all these years!
From the very beginning, placing my initial order to my retainers, Byte customer service has been with me. Customer Service progress check in and follow up through out the process, is continuous. I recommend the Btye program to anyone thinking to change their smile at a reasonable cost. Wm O'Neal

It's amazing to see changes so quickly- our HyperByte with your aligners works wonders! And we love a good 3-in-1, don't you? ;) Thank you for your review!
I was debating between either Byte or smile direct. So I started to do some more research, of course I ended up with Byte. I picked them because I saw that they were offering the hyper byte which speeds up the process as well as soothe some of the pain you might have while wearing the aligners since your teeth are starting to move around where they are supposed to. (I saw a YouTube video of that) Also they have the whitening substance they send to you as well which is great, so you can whiten your teeth and also straighten them at the same time! So once I ordered the impression kit, Brandon was the one that reached out to me and assisted me. He was great, responded pretty quick and always offered assistance if it was needed. I think its a great company and I want to thank them for helping me make this decision a dream come true.
They've got themselves a quite impressive team! Very outstanding customer skills, patience and very informative!
The byte system comes packaged in such a way that leaves little room for error! The aligners are packaged and ready to change each week. The Hyperbyte system is used for only 5 minutes per day and helps with the discomfort of my teeth shifting! The byte bright freshener and whitener has already whitened my teeth. This is my third week, and I am already seeing a change in my upper teeth. The byte system is affordable and easy, and I can't wait to see the final results.

Woohoo! We love seeing results so soon. Can't wait to get you to that last week, Elizabeth!
I am so impressed with BYTE’s customer service! From day 1 of ordering my impression kit, someone from their company has been available to me via phone or text to answer my questions. My aligners came a week early, despite COVID19 causing delays. I purchased this without consulting with my dentist who is a close family friend. She requested to speak to one of the Orthodontists at Byte, and they were very accommodating and even did a 3 way call. I have 15 weeks of treatment (14 to go) and cannot WAIT to see my new smile!
Their customer service is amazing and fast, just like talking to a friend. The aligners are easy to handle, easy directions, and many options for payment. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to fix their smile!
Definitely would reccomend to anyone considering doing at home aligners. They have the best price, great customer service, and you get straight teeth in a fraction of the time as other companies.
They have been very thorough and polite throughout the whole process so far! Explained step by step exactly what to expect and assured me they are here for anything! I really feel like a valued customer and see why the ratings have been so high! So happy that I went with this company!
Byte is a godsend! I have an open bite and looked Into getting braces. Almost $7000! With 5 little ones, I couldn't imagine spending that kind of money on my teeth. :( Then, I found Byte! So far everything's been fast, easy, and the staff is amazing! They sent me my treatment plan, I reviewed it, talked it over with my personal advisor, and less than 18 hours later they sent me a revised plan that covered any concern I had! It looks awesome too! Just paid for them and cannot wait for them to get here!!!!

We're thrilled to share be on this journey with you, Kimberly! We're here for you, every step of the way <3
I have thought about braces since my teens, now in my forties I decided to finally do something to straighten my smile. After pricing around for braces and other invisible aligners, I am so happy that I decided to go with Byte. I especially like the HyperByte which helps ease some of the normal pain that goes along with moving teeth into position. The customer service reps are very responsive. I have had nothing but a positive experience and recommend to anyone thinking about improving their smile.
My teeth were never really bad before I started byte, but I wanted to perfect them. I am on week 10 now and halfway done. Byte is so worth it. My teeth are so much straighter and super white thanks to the britebyte. I’m super happy with my results!
Week 9 and I am seeing a difference and feeling the difference every week. I am super excited about the final week!
I am on my fourth week of aligners. They have been a great fit, comfortable and do not hinder my speech. My teeth are already shifting! Everything about this company has been a smooth process.
Got the box to do the impressions they were very big. I got a text asking how the box looked and I told them they were too big they immediately sent me smaller ones no problem. I just got my review back can’t wait to get them.
Byte was very quick to help me in my process. They’re contact team made sure I was taken care of every step of the way and ensured me that my aligners were getting taken care of. I’ve recommend them to my friend so that too can get a better smile with every byte!
It was so easy, and kinda fun to take my impressions. I was pleasantly surprised when I got the email for my treatment plan. The 3D video of how my teeth will move throughout treatment was really cool. I can’t wait to get started
Byteme was FAST. I ordered my kit easily and received it quickly. The trays didn't fit right so I messaged my consultant and they shipped the right size within a few days. Once I shipped out my molds I heard back quickly that they were received and within 5 days I had the chance to review the change the planned aligners would do for my teeth! It was amazing! Many pay options as well. 10/10 recommend.
So far I am very satisfied with byte customer service and how fast they can prepare treatment plan for you. Now I am waiting for my aligners and can’t wait to see results in 9 weeks!
The customer service has been more than phenomenal through this process. They have also followed up with me in regards to my impressions, making sure that everything came in a timely manner. I was able to send return them with no problem, and receive my treatment plan in less than 72 hrs. I can’t wait to receive my aligners!
I was nervous to start the process but when I did, I found it was actually fun. My impression kit came quickly the directions were so easy, and the packaging was beautiful. My treatment plan was completed within a few days. I am now waiting for my aligners and I couldn't be more excited.
To say I am impressed with Byte is an understatement. Everyone working there is so knowledgeable and makes the process very smooth. I did my research before going with a company and am extremely happy I went with Byte. Highly recommend!!
Byte has been very helpful with my teeth aligners.. Being 70 years old I feel a need to take extra precautions with my teeth. Byte has helped me to close the gap on my front teeth and bring a smile to my face.. Thank you Byte and all their customer representatives.
My treatment plan for Byte was approved quickly !! My Byte advisor Jessica B. made the process go a lot smoother. She was extremely caring and answered all my questions and concerns. I am nervous to start my process since I had Invisalign before. However, I am ready to see my final results, and happy I decided to go with Byte. Thank you Byte!
This process has been so quick this far! I ordered my impression kit, got it within 3 days. Returned my impression kit the same day I got them (Thursday) and they received them on Monday, received an email stating they were there and being reviewed! 3 days later I got an email from my byte advisor, shoutout to Nadia! I gave her a call, set up my payment plan and now I’m awaiting my aligners in the next few weeks! Everything has been super easy and the customer service has been outstanding. I can not wait to continue to work with this company to perfect my smile 😊
I will start off by stating this is an excellent company. From their sales department to product quality to customer service, Byte really has met my expectations. I started the process after Black Friday 19' ($20 promotion for impression kit) and never took the time to complete the impressions. A customer service rep followed up without being invasive or pushy, after which I completed the impressions. Again after receiving the treatment plan, I held off on purchasing due to personal reasons and a rep reached out twice without being over done on the sales pitch. The second call was to ensure everything was okay and even encouraged me to take advantage of the current promotion ($100 off w/ free Snow Teeth Whitening). I appreciated they reached out with something to make the offer better versus pestering me to just buy their product. After making the purchase, it took about 6 weeks for the aligners to arrive. The first week was not painful at all and by the third week I decided to trying changing aligners before the 7 day recommendation (I felt no difference of changing on 7 days or 5 days). I reached out to the rep who contacted me regarding any questions or concerns I may have had, then requested for a dentist's opinion on the effects of switching aligners early. The response was done very quickly and the dentist even reached out to me personally (asked for new images of current teeth with and without aligners) to ensure my plan would not effect me negatively. The dentist approved switching every 5 days and no earlier than 4 days and confirmed that some individuals' teeth move faster and this plan would not be recommended for everybody. However, they agreed that no significant or permanent damage could occur and I turned my 21 week treatment to 14 weeks! Every interaction has been very pleasant and quick in response, both from the doctors and the customer service reps. A friend decided to get traditional braces (on the same timeline) and he will not get them off for over a year.. and cannot get adjustments due to COVID 19.. so it will be even longer! I am so glad I went with Byte, I have not even had a single person ask if I have aligners as no one in my office has even noticed! If you are an adult, do NOT go with the traditional way of braces. This process has been extremely easy to include the comfort of switching aligners, to keeping them clean with BrightByte (works super well), and working with customer service for any questions. If you're on the fence, just do it! You'll be glad you did
I highly recommend byte! Works amazing and the team behind it are awesome! Answered all my questions!

Thank you! From the moment you purchase your impressions to the moment you get your retainers, our care team is there for you, every step of the way. We're excited for your final results, Robert!
Customer service kept me feeling supported throughout the process. The videos helped me get the impressions right the first try. I found byte pay easy to set up and the entire process was made simply and with efficiency. I enjoyed being able to track my process on the website as I went. And best of all the whole process guarantees that you will be happy with your smile when your done!
Amazing customer service with your own personal byte advisor, 100% approval of financing options, all treatment done from the comfort of your home. Amazing company. So excited to start my treatment!
Byte has been great so far! The staff are so nice and helpful. My aligners are in the making and I can't wait to receive them in the mail. I had braces when I was young and hated them so I'm ready for straight teeth without the ugly and bulky hardware!
As I was looking for Aligner there are so many companies and the best one after looking for a while was BYTE. They have very great customer service and they work fast.
Thank you Byte for providing an easy at home system to help straighten my teeth! My treatment plan was 15 weeks, they send all of your aligners to you at one time, and you change them out every week, while there is sometimes a slight discomfort when changing aligners; it is so worth it!! You will be amazed at the transformation in such a short amount of time! Also I’m sure the discomfort level is way less than braces!! It is definitely more cost effective than braces to be sure! Customer service reps were always prompt with their responses if I ever had any questions, thank you Byte for making me even more confident with my smile!
