Getting a straight, beautiful smile used to mean years of dental appointments, adjustments, and expensive braces. Today, innovations in dental care have made it easier than ever to skip the orthodontist and straighten your teeth from the comfort of your own home. Smilelove provides patients with an FDA approved alternative to traditional braces and Invisalign systems that won’t affect your eating habits or lifestyle, and will save you time and money, plus—their clear design is barely noticeable. Learn all about the benefits of using invisible aligners at home.
Getting started with an at-home teeth straightening kit is simple and easy with only a few steps to complete. First, we make sure you're a good candidate to use Smilelove’s invisible braces at home by asking some basic questions. Once we know you're good to go, you’ll get your at-home impression kit. Take impressions of your teeth without ever setting foot in a dentist’s office and mail them back. We’ll create a digital preview of your finished treatment so you can decide if Smilelove is right for you.
Once you know what your finished smile will look like, you can get your at-home teeth straightening kit with all your aligners in one convenient package. Using invisible aligners at home and getting all your aligners in one package means you don’t have to wait for the next package to arrive once you’ve completed a phase of your treatment. Simply pop in your next pair of teeth aligners when your treatment schedule specifies and you’re good to go. If your teeth aligners feel a little tight getting on your teeth, you can use Chewies to help position your aligners correctly on your teeth.
One of the most obvious benefits of using teeth aligners at home is that there are no more monthly dental visits to attend. Dental visits are costly and time-consuming, often requiring you to take time off work to fit appointments into your schedule. With at-home teeth straightening, there’s no need to spend hours in a dentist’s waiting room, or time in a dental chair changing rubber bands and adjusting wires to get a beautiful smile. Using invisible braces at home means you don’t even have to get off the couch to fix your smile. There’s no more missed time from work or juggling your schedule to make it to your appointments.
Traditional metal braces are highly visible as you go through your daily life, and hide your lovely smile behind a jumble of metal and wires. Even popular ceramic brackets are still visible and the clear bands stain the second you eat or drink anything remotely pigmented. Coffee? Better quit now. Mustard? Enjoy having yellow teeth until your next dental appointment. Using invisible aligners at home is just that—invisible. While your teeth might shine a little brighter, your aligners won’t hide your beautiful smile behind metal wires, brackets, and stained bands. Smilelove engineers our invisible braces to fit snugly against your teeth, while maintaining unprecedented transparency. So go ahead, wear your aligners—no one will ever know!
As anyone who's ever had to eat while wearing traditional metal or ceramic braces can tell you—the struggle is real. Eating with braces on limits what foods you should eat (no hard candies, corn on the cob, apples, popcorn, carrots, pretzels—you get the idea) and gets messy (imagine all of your food constantly stuck in your braces). While you can joke about saving it for later, the fact is, it’s kind of gross. Flossing and brushing are also harder with traditional braces. Imagine threading your floss between every single tooth. You’ll also need a tiny brush to make sure you get all the gunk off your brackets. Yes, it’s incredibly time-consuming.
With an at-home teeth straightening kit, your aligners are completely removable. You can take them out to brush and floss your teeth and they won’t interfere with your normal eating habits. All you have to do is pop them out before your meal, brush your teeth after eating, pop them back on, and your treatment can continue without interruption.
Along with making it difficult to properly brush and floss your teeth, the brackets and wires on traditional braces often rub painfully against the inside of your mouth and can end up causing sores. Usually, this means you just have to slap some dental wax on your braces until your mouth toughens up. Using invisible aligners at home doesn’t cause this discomfort because the aligners are smooth and fit snugly against your teeth. There’s nothing for them to catch on so there are no painful sores in your mouth.
Although braces can take years to adjust your smile to get the results you want, using Smilelove’s teeth aligners at home typically takes around 6-8 months for mild to moderate cases. This means you can spend less time undergoing treatment and more time enjoying your new smile.
Finally, one of the greatest challenges of getting braces or Invisalign is the cost. Traditional braces typically cost thousands of dollars and even Invisalign averages anywhere from $3,500 to $8,000. Smilelove’s system costs 75% less than traditional teeth straightening methods and is more affordable than other at-home teeth straightening methods as well. We also offer different payment packages to suit what works best for your budget.
At the end of your treatment, you’ll also want a retainer to keep your smile nice and straight. While many places offer retainers for an additional fee, Smilelove includes your first retainer free of charge.
