Invisible Braces

SmileDirectClub Review

SmileDirectClub provides you with invisible aligners to straighten your teeth right from the comfort of your home. As an affordable straightening option, they’ll ship your aligners right to your door and your smile will be transformed in as little as six months.

The Gist

SmileDirectClub changed the teeth-straightening game when they appeared on the marketing in 2013, making it easier than ever to achieve that perfect smile. SmileDirectClub sends invisible teeth aligners right to your door to give you a smile you’ll love in an average of six months. The process is simple — you book a 3D scan in your SmileShop or have an at-home kit sent to you. Then they take care of the rest. They’ll send your invisible aligners and whitening set right to your door, and the rest is up to you. Once you’re done with the aligners, they’ll send you a retainer to maintain the smile you’ve worked for.

Great For People Who

  • Want to straighten their teeth for a fraction of the cost. SmileDirectClub costs 60% less than the price of other teeth straightening options.

  • Don’t have time to make out-of-office orthodontist appointments — they deliver everything right to you.

  • Want affordable payment options. Pay a $250 down payment and $80 a month for 24 months.

  • Want comfortable retainers for their teeth. SmileDirectClub makes retainers with smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks and gums.

What Else Do They Do?

SmileDirectClub removes the hassle of in-office visits, but that doesn’t mean you’re sacrificing quality care. They work with a network of 225 duly licensed dentists and orthodontists to give you professional treatment. Your SmileDirectClub dentist or orthodontist reviews your photos, medical history, and a 3D image of your smile before building your custom plan — it’s similar to an in-office appointment without the travel.

Bonus Points

  • To see if you’re eligible, all you have to do is take a quick online assessment on their website — no appointments necessary.

  • They accept HSA, FSA or CareCredit to help cover the cost of your aligners. Additionally, your insurance provider may also reimburse you after purchasing your aligners (this is dependent on your type of coverage and the plan you’re on).

  • In addition to your retainers, they also send bright on, their teeth whitening system that will give you a brighter smile.

  • They include a “Chewie,” which helps you tighten your aligners. You chew it as if it were a piece of gum when you have your aligners in.

  • The have SmileShops across the country with more coming soon, giving you the option for an in-person assessment.

Take Note

If you’re looking to purchase invisible aligners for your children, they must be at least 12 years of age and have all permanent teeth present. For patients under the age of 18, you need a parent/guardian signature on the Medical/Dental History form provided during your online evaluation.
