7 reasons clear aligners are the best investment you’ll make in 2019

Maybe you’ve considered straightening your teeth in the past, but it’s always seemed too expensive, too inconvenient, or, well, just not really necessary. But now you’re reading this blog post and wondering if 2019 is the year to take your smile into your own hands. (The answer is yes, of course.)

Here are 7 reasons investing in SmileDirectClub will pay dividends countless times over.

1. You’re in good hands.

To start the process, we’ll need a 3D image of your smile. You can either book a 3D scan at your local SmileShop or sign up to get our easy-to-use, at-home impression kit. Once we receive your results, your 3D smile is reviewed by a dentist or orthodontist who will create your customized treatment plan. We work with a network of more than 225 duly licensed dentists and orthodontists throughout the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. These affiliated doctors have years of aligner therapy experience.

“An individual who is requesting treatment by using SmileDirectClub’s aligners is receiving the same level of care from a treating doctor as an individual visiting a traditional orthodontist or dentist for treatment,” says Jeffrey Sulitzer, DMD, Chief Clinical Officer at SmileDirectClub. “The teledentistry platform allows for more convenient access and flexibility for individuals who may not have access to local care.”

2. You can use your FSA or HSA to purchase.

Apply your FSA or HSA funds toward aligners. You’ll simply use your FSA or HSA debit card on our site like a normal credit card. No card? No problem. Call our SmileExperts directly. Plus, your dental insurance plan may reimburse you for a portion of the cost of clear aligners.Don’t forget: We also accept CareCredit, a healthcare financing care with 6-month and 12-month interest-free options.

3. You’ll receive free premium teeth whitening.

The average take-home teeth whitening kit will run you anywhere from $250 to $400. With SmileDirectClub’s aligners, we’ll throw in bright on™ premium teeth whitening for free so you’ll get not only a straighter smile but a brighter one, too. Our whitening takes just 5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes in the evening, and when paired with our LED accelerator light, you could start seeing a brighter smile in less than a week. Results from one full treatment of bright on last 6 months. Talk about a grin-changer.

4. You’ll walk away more confident.

A lifetime supply of confidence? Yes, please. Your self-confidence spills over into satisfying relationships, job success, and even your health. With our typical customer seeing results in 6 months, you’re looking at a brighter, straighter smile and a more confident you by summertime.

5. Your smile will shine brighter – and you’ll feel happier.

Show off those pearly whites, and your mood is sure to get a boost. Studies have found that smiling releases the feel-good hormones dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins in the brain. Translation: Your heart rate and blood pressure will decrease, making you feel more relaxed, less stressed, and happier overall.

6. You’ll pay 60% less than you would with other teeth straightening treatments.

In-office clear aligner therapy can cost upwards of US$5,000, while traditional braces average US$7,000 and up. Ouch. SmileDirectClub is convenient, private, and affordable. We offer two simple payment options to fit your needs: Single Pay, a one-time payment, and SmilePay, a low down payment and monthly payment plan – no credit checks or forms required.

7. You’re at no risk.

Our Confident Smile Guarantee means we’ll refund your risk-free impression kit or SmileShop scan if the affiliated licensed dentist or orthodontist determines that you aren’t a suitable candidate for our clear aligner system. Learn more about returns and guarantee here.
