Question Does a splint go all the way over your teeth?? What do they look like?

Does a splint fit all the way over your teeth like clear braces do almost? Or do they cover only half-way? Are they like invisalign looking or are they only for the back of your teeth. I know they are all diff. that is why I want to know!

I wear an upper splint. Mine fits like the invisilign braces. It covers my upper teeth, but it is more noticeable. It is much more bulky and noticeable. I saw a gal with the invisialign, and I didn't even notice it until she took it off. You can actually see the splint in my case. The cool thing is that most people think I have the invisalign braces. I don't feel as self-concious about it now.
