Pros and Cons of Zenyum
Here’s an honest list of pros and cons with our clear aligners:
Our invisible braces can cover a wide range of ages and treat a variety of mild to complex cases/malocclusions. But sometimes, we just can’t correct all orthodontic issues.
Ages right for Zenyum
When it comes to age, Zenyum Invisible Braces are suited for adults aged 21 and up. In fact, we’ve transformed the smiles of many adults who thought they were too old already to get braces.

Smile Tip: We now also offer our clear aligners for teens and can help those as young as 16 to 20 years old get their dream smiles!
Severity of teeth conditions
Every smile journey begins with our free smile assessment. If you’re eligible, the appropriate treatment will be prescribed based on the complexity of your condition.
To recap, we offer two kinds of treatments:
Some examples of extremely severe cases that may not be suitable for ZenyumClear™ Plus to treat are:
- Cases that require extractions due to severe crowding/protrusion
- Cases of pre-existing bite issues
Smile Tip: Treatments and case severity are looked at on a case by case basis. Treating dentists will still be the best to advise on eligibility for Zenyum Invisible Braces.
Costs and other fees
Here’s a quick recap of the breakdown of our costs for an entire Zenyum journey. Other than the braces themselves, costs you’ll encounter along your clear aligners journey include:
- Initial doctor consultation (S$150 – S$186)
- Re-scans post-treatment (S$100)
- Retainers (S$300)
All in, this makes for a total of $3,200 – $3,236 for the entire ZenyumClear™ treatment, and $4,540 – $5,076 for the entire ZenyumClear™Plus treatment. Compared to other types of braces, this entire treatment plan is still the most affordable way to go.
We offer a variety of payment options for you to choose from with both types of treatment. Make a one-time payment or opt for interest-free monthly instalments from any of our Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) partners.
Personalisation of treatment plans
If you’re eligible for our clear aligners, you’ll be able to get a personalised treatment plan from a treating dentist. On your first consultation, the treating dentist will align with you on what your goals are for your braces journey. From there, they will model your complete set of aligners – which you will be able to receive and fit by the second consultation.
Throughout your entire Zenyum process, you will only need a maximum of 4 visits to your dentist. Once you get started, most of the treatment monitoring will be done through the Zenyum app. From there, there will only be 1 or 2 more physical consultations that you’ll need to do.
Duration of treatment
Unlike the standard 2-year treatment for most braces, the duration of your clear aligners journey can range between 3 months to 15 months depending on the severity of your case.

Dedicated customer care
If you encounter any SOS situations during your treatment, our customer care is always contactable through the Zenyum app. Dentists are always reachable through the app as well in case of something medically urgent.
Whether it’s to speed up on the production of your aligners, to accidentally losing your aligners, to even in the unlikely instances you might not be happy with the final result, you don’t have to feel shy about raising your concerns.
Here’s what Sarah and Syed had to say about their experience with our customer care:
Although you might experience some initial discomfort when switching between aligner sets, you’ll still be able to comfortably live your life without much change.
For instance, compared to metal braces, you can remove your invisible braces during meal times and enjoy your food as per normal. Your actual diet will also not be as restricted either.
Smile Tip: Switch to a new set of aligners just before bedtime, so you can sleep through the initial discomfort and feel better the next day.
You probably already know that invisible braces blend in with your smile and are fully personalised to match the shape of your teeth and gum line, so you’ll never have to be afraid of the camera.
But did you also know that invisible braces are a great option if you are looking to whiten your teeth? Since you can easily remove them, you’ll be able to use any whitening solution you want. You won’t have to worry about uneven stains after once you’ve completed your braces journey!
