SmileDirectClub’s promise to straighten your teeth at a fraction of the cost of Invisalign seems too good to be true – we know. That’s why there are internet rumors that SmileDirectClub aligners ARE too good to be true. There are even rumors wafting around that our aligners are not safe and will hurt your teeth.
Those rumors are absolutely not true.
“SmileDirectClub is completely safe,” says Dr. Jeffrey A. Sulitzer, Chief Clinical Officer of SmileDirectClub, who has been a dentist for 36 years.
SmileDirectClub works with a network of thousands of experienced dentists and orthodontists to prescribe and oversee your treatment. Each doctor is licensed or registered in the state or country in which the Club member lives, and each has more than 4 years of experience working with clear aligners.
SmileDirectClub’s network of doctors have straightened more than 1.5 million smiles and counting.
Here’s how the doctors in our network supervise your treatment, according to Sulitzer: Before you begin your Smile JourneyTM, your doctor will review a 3D image of your teeth, photos of your teeth, your dental history and other relevant medical information. Your doctor will then prescribe a customized aligner treatment plan just for you.
SmileDirectClub aligners work by gradually increasing the pressure on your teeth with progressively stronger plastic in each set of aligners. Each month, you will start with soft plastic aligners, move to medium plastic aligners as your teeth acclimate to being moved, and finish up with aligners made of firm plastic.
Our dental team is with you every step of the way to explain what’s going on in your treatment, keep you comfortable, and answer any questions or concerns that may come up. You can call, email, chat, or video chat with them 24/7.
Just try getting in touch with a regular orthodontist or their team outside of office hours. SmileDirectClub’s teledentistry platform innovates aligners for the modern era, where doctors come to you with world-class care.
If you were wondering: Is SmileDirectClub good? Is SmileDirectClub worth it? We hope you now have that answer.
Because we have the answer: Absolutely!
