The benefits of clear aligners for military

With SmileDirectClub clear aligners, you can straighten your smile while serving your country.

Make that snaggletooth stand at attention.

If you’re a member of the military or thinking about enlisting, but also want a smile you’re proud of, you don’t have to wait. Unlike braces, clear aligners are approved for basic training and active deployment. They’re also affordable – 60% less than other options – and convenient, whether you’re home or away.

Here are 7 more reasons why SmileDirectClub clear aligners might be right for you.

1. You can deploy with clear aligners.

While you can enlist in the military with traditional metal braces, you can’t ship into military training or deploy with them – and you obviously can’t keep up with monthly office visits. Clear aligners are not only approved during deployment, they’re also safe. Our custom-made clear plastic aligners fit snugly against your teeth and are made of a smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that won’t get in the way or irritate your cheeks and gums like braces.

2. You get an exclusive discount.

SmileDirectClub offers active military members and retired service members $100 off clear aligners to say thanks for your service, making our clear aligners even more affordable. A star-studded smile can be yours for just $1750 or $80/month after your discount. No credit checks. No forms to fill out.

3. It’s easy to get started.

Get a smile you love by booking a free scan at one of our 100 SmileShops across the country. A 3D scan takes just 30 minutes or less and allows us to get started on your smile plan right away.

4. You get all your aligners at once.

We ship all your SmileDirectClub clear aligners at once, so you can get them all before you deploy – no waiting around for your next batch of aligners. You’ll have everything you need to straighten your smile from day one, along with our cult-favorite lip balm and premium teeth whitening. We’ve got you covered.

5. There are no monthly office visits.

Once you get started, everything can be done remotely. In lieu of monthly in-person office visits, your doctor will check in remotely with you every 90 days to make sure your smile is shifting on schedule. We work with a network of 225 duly licensed dentists and orthodontists, so you’re in good hands.

6. You can take them out.

Another perk of our clear aligners is that they’re removable, meaning there are no food or activity restrictions. (Though we do recommend wearing them all day and night, except when eating or drinking, for best results.)

7. Our clear aligners straighten teeth fast.

In fact, the average smile plan is just 6 months long, so a straighter smile can be yours in no time. Find out if you’re a candidate for SmileDirectClub clear aligners. It only takes 30 seconds to get started.
