Yes! With remote teledentistry, you can straighten teeth without traditional metal braces without monthly in-office visits and under the guidance of a state licensed dentist or orthodontist. SmileDirectClub aligners move teeth into place month by month like a puzzle, straightening smiles in an average of 4-6 months.1
SmileDirectClub aligner therapy includes several sets of tight-fitting, custom-made aligners that gradually shift teeth into their desired position. Every set of aligners in your treatment plan is shipped to you at once. No monthly shipments. No painful mouth full of metal. You’ll have all the tools you need to get the smile you’ll love.
First, we make a 3D image of your teeth to see exactly what’s going on and align your smile. There are 3 easy ways to make a 3D image: You can visit a SmileShop for an image of your smile, you can visit a local dentist or orthodontist in our Partner Network, or we can build it from the impressions you take using our doctor-prescribed impression kit. A treatment plan is made using this 3D image, which is reviewed, approved, and prescribed by a state licensed dentist or orthodontist.
We’ll send you your entire treatment’s aligners directly to your door. Throughout treatment, you will have regular virtual check-ins with your doctor to monitor your progress. You’ll also have access to our 24/7 support and dental teams via video chat, phone, or email if you have any questions. We’ll also send you bright on™, our premium teeth whitening, so you can show off those pearly whites.
After periodically checking in with your doctor and completing treatment, you can purchase a set of retainers. Wear them at night to keep your new smile in place. And you can order touch-up whitening treatments at any time.
