the best choice for your teen.


Doctor Directed

One of our 250+ state-licensed dentists or orthodontists oversees your teen’s treatment plan and monitors progress with regular virtual visits. 


No monthly office visits, so no taking off work or leaving school early. And our telehealth platform provides 24/7 access to our dedicated dental care team, so you can check on your teen’s progress from home.


Our custom-made clear aligners cost up to 60% less than braces. Plus, they’re often covered by major insurance providers.

Questions? Here are some answers.

We’re able to offer a competitive price because our telehealth platform eliminates office overhead that makes traditional orthodontics costly. We ship aligners directly to you, so you can straighten your teeth for up to 60% less than traditional braces.

Braces move one tooth at a time via brackets attached to single points on teeth. SmileDirectClub clear aligners move all teeth simultaneously, distributing force equally across the entire tooth. Typical braces treatment time takes 2 years, while the majority of SmileDirectClub’s treatment plans are 4–6 months.


Our network of dentists and orthodontists use our proprietary computer algorithm to carefully plan the coordinated movements of every tooth to safely and efficiently deliver a smile you’ll love.

SmileDirectClub is in-network with most major insurance providers, including UnitedHealthcare, Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, and Cigna. We can also check for eligibility at Delta Dental, Humana, MetLife, and many more. See how much your insurance will cover here.

Our 24/7 care team can connect you with our team of experienced dental professionals or your teen’s doctor via video, chat, email, or phone. If an issue requires an in-person visit, our team will refer you to an affiliated SmileDirectClub dentist near you. Our dental team, with the assistance of the local dentist, will recommend next steps.

We understand that mistakes happen. For starters, give our customer care team a call at 800-688-4010 so we can understand where your teen is in their smile journey. Then our dental team can provide the best recommendation for your teen's care based on their unique situation. Their treating doctor and our dental team may advise your teen to wear their last set of aligners or to move on to the next set. If we determine your teen needs a replacement aligner, we will send the first set to you for free. Subsequent replacement aligners may be subject to a $99 surcharge depending on the circumstances. Either way – give us a call and we’ll work with you to develop the best path forward for your treatment.
