This is part 3 in a 4 part series about why I decided to straighten my teeth with SmileDirectClub at home braces system (invisible aligners), and how I am doing it for less than $1500.00. Click here to see the finished product!
2018 Update: it has been 20 months since I finished my invisible aligners treatment. The treatment plan that I used and the price that I paid in 2015 may not be current.
How does it feel wearing clear aligners 22 hours a day? I don’t even notice them anymore…unless I try to eat something and forgot I was wearing them. They don’t interfere with talking or sleeping at all.
I’ve noticed significantly more pressure the first few days with each set. Especially the one I’m on now. It seems like the teeth do all of the moving within the first week of putting on the new set and the remaining 2 weeks is to stabilize and secure their place before moving on to the next set of aligners.
I’m very happy with how things have gone up to this point and am very optimistic about the next few months!
Disclosure: Almost 10 months after first hearing about SmileDirectClub I had saved up the money and was ready to make my purchase. Before I finalized everything I decided to contact them to see if they would be interested in having me share my story as I go through the process. They graciously agreed and gave me a percentage off of my treatment plan in exchange for a series of posts that will end when my treatment ends. I was prepared to purchase my 10 sets of invisible aligners even if they did not offer the discount. You can use my link to get started and receive an evaluation kit for 50% off from SmileDirectClub!
