I have invisalign and I’m happy with the treatments. One thing I’m worrying about is whether or not I can whiten my teeth while getting my invisalign treatment or if I have to wait until I’m done. I was hoping to do zoom whitening.

Zoom whitening can take around two hours. That is about the amount of time that you’re allowed to have the aligners out, but it doesn’t leave you any time for eating.
You ahve a couple of options for teeth whitening with Invisalign. First, you could do zoom, but it does make your teeth more sensitive. If you combine that with straightening your teeth, that may be more discomfort than you’re ready to deal with.
The second option is to use your invisalign aligners as teeth whitneing trays. Your dentist will probably be willing to give you the whitening gel at a nominal fee and you can place that in your aligners while you sleep.
You’ll probably end up saving money on the deal.
