Yes, if your dental plan provides orthodontic benefits, you may be eligible for coverage from your insurance company. In most cases, SmileDirectClub will coordinate payment directly with the insurance company so you only pay the balance of what you owe after discounts and insurance coverage is applied to the total cost of your treatment.
There are some cases where your insurance policy may require that you pay for the total balance of your aligner treatment and apply for reimbursement from your insurance company. We can get you the forms you need to file your claim for reimbursement.

First, you’d get started with our $59 remote impression kit or a 3D image at a SmileShop. Once your new smile is ready, you have two convenient payment options. With Single Pay, make a one-time payment of $1950 which is up to 60% less than other teeth straightening options. You can also pay over time with SmilePay™ for a down payment of $250 and $89 a month for 24 monthly payments. No credit checks. No forms to fill out. At the end of treatment, you'll want to purchase a retainer to preserve your new smile. We sell these for $99 a set. You can learn more about our aligner pricing by visiting our Pricing page.
The licensed dentist or orthodontist assigned to you will determine the best plan for your needs, but we straighten most smiles in an average of 4-6 months.
Your assigned dentist or orthodontist will determine which aligner treatment plan is best for your teen. Our original 22-hour-wear SmileDirectClub aligners will help your teen achieve a smile they’ll love in as little as 4–6 months.
SmileDirectClub Nighttime Aligners™ are worn for 10 continuous hours each night. They provide a more flexible solution for teens who don’t want to commit to 22 hours of daily wear. While treatment plans are a little longer (10 months on average), if you’re worried about your teen misplacing a set of aligners, Nighttime Aligners provide the added bonus of never having to leave the house.
Both options work best for cases of mild to moderate crowding. SmileDirectClub’s aligners straighten teeth without buttons, attachments, or teeth filings. Unlike with metal braces, your teen will be able to eat their favorite foods and maintain good oral health habits like brushing and flossing without brackets in the way. Learn More >
Our aligners come as a set of multiple aligners. Each aligner will make slight adjustments to tooth position, a process that is mapped out in advance by a SmileDirectClub affiliated, state-licensed dentist or orthodontist who reviews your case. You’ll begin wearing a new set of aligners as prescribed, advancing you to the next stage of your new smile. We make it even easier by shipping your aligners directly to you.
We offer two easy ways to pay.
We offer a convenient monthly payment plan for a $250 down payment and $89 a month.*
No credit checks. No forms to fill out.

Three Easy Steps
How it works
Our dental team
designs your plan.
We make a 3D image of your teeth that lets us see what's going on and helps us design your treatment plan. There are two easy ways to make this image: You can visit a SmileShop for an in-person scan, or use our at-home kit to create impressions you can send to us. A licensed dentist or orthodontist reviews and approves your custom treatment plan.
Our dental team
creates your aligners.
We share a preview of your smile transformation, then create your custom aligners. We'll ship them to you all at once, so there's no wait. Your assigned dentist or orthodontist will have regular virtual check-ins, guiding your treatment remotely from beginning to end. And you'll get premium teeth whitening that gives results in just one week.
You show the world
a new smile.
After completing treatment and checking with your doctor, you can purchase a set of retainers. You'll wear them only at night to keep your beautiful new smile in place. Feel free to order touch-up whitening treatments any time.
