Hey friends! I am excited to share with you a new product I started using last week. They are teeth aligners to correct your smile called SmileDirectClub. The process can be done entirely online (because who enjoys going to the dentist?!). This post is one of a two part series. The final post will show you the results, and this post will introduce you to the aligners.
I am very insecure about my smile. Two years ago, I had my wisdom teeth removed and since, my teeth have shifted. I joke with friends about my “snaggle tooth,” and I want to correct it before it gets worse. On my to-do list for 2016, I said that I wanted to look into straightening my teeth since I’ve never had braces before.
How does it work?
- Step 1: You will fill out an assessment. The submit images of your teeth.
- Step 2: They will mail you a box of molds with a return label for you to take imprints of your teeth. In lieu of the molds, I opted to go to their DC office and have 3-D images of my teeth taken. This took 30 minutes. If you’re in Nashville, you can go to their office there too.
- Step 3: From there, an orthodontist will evaluate your images and molds and create your first 3 sets of aligners. They will mail you your first box with 3 sets of aligners. Inside of the box, you will find instructions on how long you should wear your aligners.
Do they hurt?
No, not so far! I am on week 2. Days 1-3 I noticed my gums were sore. It took me a couple of days to get used to the aligners.
How much does it cost?
Less than braces and competitor aligners. It’s around $1,700 total. You can pay in payments so it’s manageable. You can read more about the pricing here.
SmileDirectClub is offing you 50% off of your assessment (so $47.50 total). Use the code DistrictDressUp when you start your SmileDirectClub treatment process.
This posts is not sponsored. SmileDirectClub offered these aligners for free in exchange for an honest review. I only work with brands I support. I definitely would not use a product (especially one that alters my teeth), that I do not trust. I was so excited when Smile Direct reached out because as I mentioned, I intended on getting aligners in the upcoming year.
