Invisalign Vs. Smile Direct Club

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an alternative treatment option for braces. These sets of clear aligners are custom fit to gradually move teeth. They are made of smooth plastic to be comfortable and durable, and are clear to remain virtually invisible. Invisalign is also removable allowing you to continue enjoying your favorite foods and activities. The clear aligners allow you to receive the same benefits of braces without being cosmetically noticeable. Making sure your social, personal, or professional life is never affected.

What Is Smile Direct Club?

Smile Direct Club is an online program that offers clear aligners through the mail. Upon signing up, you are sent a set of impression molds to complete yourself along with instructions for taking pictures of your teeth and mouth. Following the completion of these steps, you must mail your results back where they will be evaluated. After waiting for approval, a set of clear aligners are made and sent out to begin treatment. The Smile Direct Club cost claims to be cheaper then Invisalign but price can vary with each individual patient.

The Disadvantages of Smile Direct Club

  • Dealing with messy molds at home
  • Never meeting with a trustworthy professional orthodontist
  • Waiting to receive and send back mail
  • Replaces dentist visits with post office visits
  • Doing a dentists job without orthodontist schooling
  • Cannot move¬†molars
  • Paying out of pocket and waiting for insurance reimbursement
