SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Align Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALGN) today announced the results of a new study by RealSelf, recognizing Invisalign® clear aligners as the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment brides and grooms are choosing and reviewing on its website before their big day. The study analyzed reviews on the RealSelf website over the past year that mention wedding-related keywords and rank the treatments based on percentage of total reviews.
"With summer being the most popular season for weddings, the Invisalign brand is thrilled to be recognized on RealSelf as the top non-surgical treatment for brides-to-be. Everyone wants to feel confident on their big day, and with photography being one of the biggest investments couples make to capture those priceless moments and memories that will last a lifetime, it's important for brides and grooms to love their smiles," said Kamal Bhandal, senior director of consumer marketing for Align Technology. "This RealSelf study, and the attention it has received from wedding specific media outlets like Brides, is a strong testament to the role we play in helping people feel confident about their smile on their wedding day and beyond."
"Invisalign [treatment] has given me so much confidence!" a 28-year-old bride-to-be wrote on RealSelf. "My boyfriend of 12 years proposed and the thought of not feeling confident with my smile on my wedding day horrified me, so I went to see about getting Invisalign [aligners]… Three weeks before I got married, my teeth are all straight and look amazing."
