Easy to clean.

Unlike braces, our custom clear aligners are removable for thorough cleaning with soap and water, vinegar and water, baking soda and water, peroxide and water, or retainer cleaner.

Easy to put in and take out.

Just ease them into your teeth and press them in place with your thumbs and index fingers. Don't bite down. Or use our Movemints to help gently seat your aligners and freshen your breath too.

Eat what you want.

Because our custom clear aligners are removable, you don't have to avoid any particular foods. Just take them out when you eat. Replace them after you brush your teeth.

Straighten your smile while you sleep.

Still have questions?

Our clear aligners come as a set of multiple aligners. Each aligner will make slight adjustments to tooth position, a process that is mapped out in advance by a SmileDirectClub affiliated, state licensed dentist or orthodontist who reviews your case. You’ll begin wearing a new set of aligners as prescribed, advancing you to the next stage of your new smile. We make it even easier by shipping your aligners directly to you.

Our aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that won't irritate your cheeks and gums like traditional metal braces often do.

Much like the days after a good workout at the gym, most people experience some tooth soreness for a few days after wearing new aligners. This is perfectly normal. It is a sign that your aligners are working, gently moving your teeth to their final destination. This soreness should gradually go away after the first few days of wearing new aligners. If the pain doesn't go away, contact our Customer Care team at 800-688-4010.

You can keep track of your aligners by logging in to your account on our website. Once at your dashboard, simply enter the date on which you start wearing your first set of aligners and let the dashboard do the rest. You can log in to see when you’re scheduled to change to your next set, which aligners you should be wearing, and how many days and aligners you have left in your treatment plan. If you ever get off course because of a vacation or forgetting to wear your aligners, you can always reset your dashboard by clicking the Get Back on Track button.

Protect your investment! We strongly recommend you safeguard your new smile with our custom-fit SmileDirectClub clear retainers. Without retainers, teeth have a tendency to shift back to their original positions. Keep them from moving back with our custom-fit retainers. One set costs $99 and is available to purchase toward the end of your treatment. Call our customer care team at 800-688-4010 about 4–5 weeks before you finish your treatment plan to place your order.
