6 things every parent needs to know about SmileDirectClub

Here’s what parents need to know about SmileDirectClub, the teen braces alternative.

We know you want only the best for your kids – and so do we!

According to the American Dental Association, orthodontic treatment often begins between ages 8 and 14. “Treatment that begins while a child is growing helps produce optimal results,” they write on their blog, Mouth Healthy.

The ADA also reported that 1 in 4 adults avoid smiling and 1 in 5 experience anxiety due to the condition of their mouth and teeth. Our invisible aligners are an easy, affordable option for teens and adults to give them a smile that will help them radiate confidence.

Take the Smile Assessment

1. It’s safe.

We take the protection of your teen’s pearly whites very seriously! We have a minimum age requirement of 12 years old, plus all customers must have all permanent teeth present and be in good dental health to get started. A state-licensed dentist or orthodontist creates each customized smile plan and oversees every single case to make sure everything is moving along as it should. Another perk: All the extra brushing and flossing with invisible aligners makes for better overall dental hygiene.

2. It’s affordable.

Let’s break down the costs. Teen braces will typically run you upwards of $7000. In-office invisible aligners like Invisalign can require attachments and cost nearly $5000 or more. SmileDirectClub invisible aligners only cost $1850, and we also offer the option of easy monthly payments, so your teen could get the smile they love for only $250 down and $80 per month. No credit checks. No forms to fill out. Visit our pricing page for all the details.

3. It’s perfect for busy kids.

Whether you’re on the road with traveling sports or sending the kids off to summer camp, you won’t have to worry about regular office appointments with invisible aligners. With our teledentistry model, everything is done under the remote care of a state-licensed dentist or orthodontist. We also ship all of the aligners out to you at once, so there’s no waiting around for your next set of aligners. But this doesn’t mean you go it alone. Your assigned doctor will check in every 90 days to see how your teeth are moving, and you can reach out to us at any time of day with any questions along the way. We’re here for you!

4. It’s a great option for most kids.

SmileDirectClub’s invisible aligners are a great option for most kids. Our aligners are designed for minor to moderate teeth correction, including space between teeth, crowding, rotations, and some bite correction. Take the free 30-second assessment to find out if SmileDirectClub is right for your teen, or visit your local SmileShop for a free 3D scan with one of our experienced SmileGuides so their smile can be evaluated by a state-licensed dentist or orthodontist in our network. Learn all about our 3D scan here.

5. It’s easy.

You can go into a nearby SmileShop to complete a 3D scan in just 30 minutes. Once you get started, our treatment plans only take an average of 6 months. The aligners are removable, meaning there are no food restrictions, and your teen won’t have to get them adjusted or wear rubber bands or headgear.

6. The aligners really are invisible.

Our aligners are made from a durable thermoplastic PET-G that’s BPA-free and identical to the shape of your teeth. And they’re comfy! The smooth plastic won’t irritate cheeks or gums like traditional braces. They’re clear and discreet, and unlike most aligners, they’re matte, not shiny, which makes them look more natural and less noticeable because they won’t reflect light. They also won’t photobomb high school dance pictures for the next four years.

SmileDirectclub aligners are a great option for most teens. Book a scan at a local SmileShop today.
