I may have confused things a bit by forgetting to mention I was speaking
of overlays on top of an existing invisible text property (see my reply
to Eli).

Um, no, that gives the opposite effect.

(let ((p (point))
      overlay)
  (insert "(" (propertize "invisible" 'invisible t) ")")
  (setq overlay (make-overlay p (point)))
  ;; All text, including parens, becomes invisible.
  (overlay-put overlay 'invisible 'visible))
