No matter how long your course is, everyone pays $1,950 for a set of SmileDirectClub aligners. This is the case even if you only want to straighten the tops or the bottoms; every order will include aligners for both sets regardless.
Using Invisalign on just the top or just the bottom teeth is referred to as single arch treatment. Single arch treatment can be an option in very rare cases. Typically, we do not recommend single arch treatment and encourage patients to wear Invisalign aligners on their top and bottom teeth.
A person could do more damage than good to their teeth, gums, and entire mouth if the product is faulty or they fail to recognize an issue with it. It is important that people are aware of the fact that over 30 complaints have been issued with Smile Direct Club through the American Association of Orthodontists.
How long does it take Smile Direct Club take to straighten teeth? The state-licensed dentist or orthodontist assigned to you will determine the best plan for your needs, but SmileDirectClub aligners straighten most smiles with minor to moderate malocclusion in an average of just 4-6 months.
Some customers were diagnosed with crossbites, misalignments, and other serious dental problems after using Smile Direct. These issues can lead to frequent headaches, strain in the neck and jaw muscles, migraines, difficult or painful chewing, and other issues.
Yes, Invisalign is available for only the bottom teeth or the top teeth, but it most cases both arches should be treated. The reason being is that you must have a stable bite or occlusion at the end of your Invisalign alignment treatment.
In an ideal smile line, the edges of your upper teeth should be parallel to your lower lip when you smile. The bottom of your lower lip should have the same line as the gums of your lower jaw.
The cost of getting top or bottom only braces range from $3,000 to $5,000.
Can Invisalign move teeth up? Yes. Moving teeth up (or down for lower teeth) is called intrusion. Invisalign intrudes teeth using anchors on adjacent teeth called attachments or buttons.
Can My Invisalign Aligners Break Over Time? The short answer is, yes. Although these aligners are incredibly durable, they can break or crack. Because you are supposed to wear your aligning trays for 20 to 22 hours a day, a break or fracture without immediate replacement can throw off your teeth straightening schedule.
SmileDirectClub was founded on the belief that affordable and convenient premium oral care should be accessible to everyone. Since our founding in 2014, SmileDirectClub has helped more than 1.5 million people transform their smiles through our pioneering telehealth platform for orthodontia.
If you didn’t wear your SmileDirectClub aligners for the full 22 hours each day during the period for which they were prescribed, you can usually wear the aligners for an extra day or even a couple of days before switching to the next set of aligners.
Some people notice that their trays are consistently becoming loose after 7-10 days. In some of these cases, it’s ok to change them out earlier. However, you should not do this without approval and supervision by your personal dentist or orthodontist.
Although SmileDirectClub only offers one type of retainer, you can always visit your dentist for more options. They will likely offer both removable and permanent retainers and can help you decide which one is best for you.
The difference being, Invisalign offers in-person treatment, while Smile Direct Club offers remote treatment. Both treatments correct the cosmetics of your smile, and with Smile Direct Club, they can correct some bite issues too. With Invisalign, you can treat most bite cases as well as any severely misaligned teeth.
Our network of dentists and orthodontists use Smart Sculpt technology to carefully plan the coordinated movements of every tooth, as well as Comfort Sense technology to move Club members through soft, medium, and firm plastic aligners in a proprietary aligner progression plan.
One of the cons that Invisalign shares with traditional braces is an increased risk for cavities and gum disease. While the risk is lower in Invisalign because the aligners are removable for great oral hygiene, the barrier of plastic does prevent saliva from reaching the teeth and gums.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost for Top Teeth Only? Because the Express treatment requires fewer aligners, the cost for treatment is less than traditional Invisalign treatment, ranging between $1,800 and $3,500, with $2,500 being the average. As always Costs are based on location, doctor and insurance.
If you want the shortest Invisalign time, then wearing your Invisalign aligners for about 22 hours per day is key.
According to the Consumer Guide for Dentistry, the national average for Invisalign is $3,000$5,000. For comparison, traditional metal bracket braces usually cost $2,000$6,000. Again, all of these prices depend on your individual case.
How do you smile without teeth? Put your tongue on the roof of your mouth. Then, lift the corners of your mouth into a small smile. Keeping your tongue on the roof of your mouth tightens your cheek and jaw muscles, which makes your face look slimmer and more natural.
Over time, many people feel their teeth are not visible when speaking. To make matters worse, as we age the upper lip tends to sag down making the upper front teeth harder to see. In these situations, diagnostic wax is used to create fuller and longer teeth and then transferred to the patient in temporary crowns.
Unfortunately, this can lead to an obviously artificial-looking smile, which is not what most of us want. The truth is that most people show at least 8 upper teeth when they smile and at least 6 lower teeth when they talk! To see what we mean, take a look at Dr. Harper’s Before and After gallery.
Adults are most likely to get braces for just their front teeth. Many individuals who elect to get this type of braces to choose to do so because they do not want to commit to long-term treatment.
How much does Smile Direct Club really cost? SmileDirectClub costs $1950 when paid in total, up front. However, you can also choose SmilePay which is a $250 down payment and $85 a month for 24 months. We gladly accept HSA, FSA, and CareCredit.
Getting your braces on takes one to two hours. Depending on your teeth and the kind of braces you’re going to wear, the process for putting them on could happen in one appointment or two.
Your retainers will fit for as long as you consistently wear them. It’s normal for your teeth to slightly shift after having your Invisalign braces removed or once you stop wearing Invisalign. This is the result of everyday wear and tear on your teeth as you bite down, chew, swallow, and speak.
Why teeth shift after orthodontic procedures Once your braces are removed or you stop wearing alignment trays such as Invisalign, your teeth may start to shift back to their old positions. This is natural. The movement may be more pronounced in some people, while others may experience very little movement.
Since the aligners are designed to begin actively moving your teeth, you’ll likely feel some discomfort for the first few days. However, most people find that the soreness wears off after the first week. You may also notice that you speak with a slight lisp during the first week of wearing your aligners.
