Depends: Know that, in the hands of fully trained orthodontic specialists, clear aligners are about half as effective as braces. In the hands of non-orthodontists the results are even less favorable. See an orthodontist for a qualified evaluation. Remember, everyone's different. Know that for my .Family i would tend to stay away from clear aligners.

Subjective: I think all our patients would say yes and are VERY happy with the results, but you need to assess: 1) how much is a beautiful smile worth to YOU and 2) how important is it to you not to have metal in your mouth-- as traditional braces are typically faster and cheaper (and often slightly more effective)

Vanity: Vanity has no price tag. As a cosmetic procedure for your overall good looks, it is one of the least expensive treatments to give you a terrific smile and good looks. You won't regret it.
