Dentists recommend SmileDirectClub Nighttime Aligners™ for busy people and teens

SmileDirectClub innovated the process of straightening teeth, making it easy to get a smile you love. That means short treatment times, flexible payment options, and an app that helps you connect with your dental team 24/7. But could the process be even easier?

The answer is a resounding yes. SmileDirectClub Nighttime Aligners allow you to straighten your teeth while you sleep, leaving you to go about your day worry-free. That’s easy.

“SmileDirectClub Nighttime Aligners are aligners that you wear 10 hours a night. The obvious advantage is that you don’t have to wear them during the day. So if you’re a busy person, this is a much more convenient way to straighten your teeth.” – Dr. Gary Moore, DDS

Doctor-directed from start to finish, Nighttime Aligners open the door to many people who didn’t think getting a new smile could fit their schedule.

Are Nighttime Aligners for me?

Perhaps you spend a large part of your workday talking to clients or speaking in public. Maybe you work in a bar or restaurant where you need to eat and drink constantly. Or, you may be afraid of losing track of your aligners at school or just simply don’t have any extra time to spare during your day. There are a lot of reasons why Nighttime Aligners may be a great solution to fit your daily routine.

The dentists and orthodontists in our network understand that keeping your lifestyle can be just as important to you as closing a gap in your teeth. “SmileDirectClub Nighttime Aligners are for patients that only want to wear them at night,” says Dr. Michael Guirguis, DDS. “They’re for people that don’t feel comfortable wearing aligners during the day.”

Listening to Club members’ desires is a critical component of developing each treatment plan.

“SmileDirectClub absolutely helps patients get the results they want.” – Dr. Harvey Spencer Jr., DDS

But you don’t have to be a professional to get Nighttime Aligners. They are also a fantastic solution for teens. The ability to remove the aligners for daily brushing and flossing helps teens keep their mouths healthy and clean. And the nighttime wear schedule gives peace of mind to parents who worry their kids might lose their aligners when out of the house.

Dr. Loray Spencer, a SmileDirectClub network dentist in Rock Hill, South Carolina, believes Nighttime Aligners help teens stay on track. “The advantage of having a nighttime option is that it makes it a foolproof system for the patient,” she says. “You literally put them in, go to sleep, wake up in the morning, take them out. So it’s a great option to keep patients compliant with their treatment.”

You may also be a candidate for Nighttime Aligners if you straightened your teeth in the past, didn’t wear your retainer, and now need to set things right again. Your teeth move your whole life, but SmileDirectClub can help you reclaim your smile – without metal wires or brackets.

“Nighttime Aligners are a great option for patients who were previously in traditional ortho and don’t really want to go back to that system.” – Dr. Loray Spencer, DDS

How do they work?

SmileDirectClub Nighttime Aligners are worn for 10 continuous hours at night with an average treatment plan length of 10 months.1 That’s a little longer than the plans for our standard SmileDirectClub aligners, which are worn all day. So, when choosing which aligners you would like to wear, think about whether it’s more important to you to finish sooner or have the ease of straightening your teeth while you sleep.

Ultimately, your prescribing doctor will make the final determination which type of aligner is medically right for you. You tell us your preference, and the doctor will see if that meets your needs. Either way, people all over the world are achieving amazing results under the care of SmileDirectClub affiliated dentists.

“Seeing the patient’s happiness after they’re done is fantastic. It’s the most gratifying feeling.” – Dr. Michael Guirguis, DDS


1“Average treatment plan length of 10 months” claim is based on the number of 10-hour Nighttime Aligners™ customer orders (approx. 95%) with treatment plans that are 8–12 months. Results may vary.
