In middle school and high school, Allisandra would get made fun of for her crooked teeth.
“I felt like everybody loved to smile and was really confident in who they were, and I didn’t really have that aspect in my life,” she says.
At the time, she asked her dad for braces, but it wasn’t in the budget for their family. No one in her family had ever worn braces. But she never gave up on her dream of having straight teeth. As she got older, she would put money aside in her piggy bank here and there so she could eventually get braces.
Then she heard about SmileDirectClub.
“As I was looking up the SmileDirectClub information, I was just like, ‘Wow, that’s amazing, 6 months to get my dream smile, I’m going for it,’” she says.
“They emailed me all the information I needed,” says Allisandra. “I got that big purple box, and it was the most exciting package I’ve ever gotten.”
She stayed on track with her treatment and enjoyed watching her smile change as she changed her aligners.
“I felt like I was getting closer and closer to my new smile,” she says.
Now, Allisandra is proud to show her teeth.
“My new smile makes me feel really confident in my own skin,” she says. “It’s the best decision I’ve ever made.”
