This is part 2 in a 4 part series about why I decided to straighten my teeth with SmileDirectClub invisible aligners, 20 years after having metal braces, and how I am doing it for less than $1500.00. For an update on my progress, click here!
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.
I wear them for 22 hours a day, taking them off only to eat and brush my teeth. I keep a travel toothbrush in my purse in case I eat while out in public, and clean them every morning and every night by brushing them with my toothbrush.
I don’t have any progress photos to share since it is still so early in the process, but I am happy with how they feel, how they wear throughout the day, and how they look while on my teeth. I am happy to report that I am also not slurring my words or lisping like I did the first week. Yay!
In a week I will be contacted by a dental professional from SmileDirectClub to evaluate my case and see if I’m ready to move on to the next set of aligners in my system. I’m hoping to have a progress photo to share in a few months since I will be halfway through the process. Stay tuned and feel free to ask me any questions you might have. If I don’t have the answer, I’ll find it for ya!
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!
