Invisalign with tooth extraction - questions/feedback needed

Hi everyone. I am going down a pathway to get invisalign since my teeth crowding is causing gum and bone loss in my bottom front teeth. In order to successfully accomplish this they want to remove a front middle incisor to make room for my teeth. Kind of freaking out about losing a tooth. The process the pain the appearance etc. The end mock up looks great in 15 to 20 months but the upfront shock is wearing on me. They said they can paint my aligner to disguise the missing tooth but still it is missing. Anyone go through this? Is this going to be super painful? Scared of needles and the dentist and just got through a cavity filling and now this.
