Invisalign vs. Smile Direct Club: Which is Better?
Not all clear aligners are the same.
Although some think DIY products like Smile Direct Club are the same as Invisalign, the materials, treatment process, history, and results are very different.
Invisalign® was the first clear aligner to disrupt the orthodontics industry more than 20 years ago. Since then, others have tried to create an alternative that can be completed solely at home, without the need for an orthodontist.
At-home clear aligners like Smile Direct Club are often met with varying opinions and outcomes. Many turn to them as a cheaper alternative to Invisalign that will allow them to handle it on their own.
In the end, the results are not always what they expected.
What’s the Difference Between Invisalign at QuickSmiles and Smile Direct Club?
The unique Invisalign method at QuickSmiles puts you under the care of our local orthodontist, combined with the affordability and convenience of DIY, all together in one service.
It truly is the best way to straighten teeth.
The reason we use Invisalign here at QuickSmiles, instead of using Smile Direct Club, can be seen in the results.
When using at-home clear aligners like Smile Direct, an orthodontist isn’t involved during the various stages of the treatment. This can lead to issues if something changes as you are switching to the next trays in the box.
At QuickSmiles, we take x-rays and pictures before you begin treatment, which our orthodontist reviews to make sure your teeth are safe to move. Skipping this step with DIY clear aligners can lead to severe damage to your teeth, mouth, and even your jaw bone.
Without consistent checkups and supervision from a specialized orthodontist, your smile and bite may not turn out the way you want. Depending on the outcome, you might even have to go to an orthodontist afterward and pay more money to have the final result corrected.
On the other hand, the difference between Smile Direct Club and Invisalign becomes very clear when looking at the new and unique method offered here at QuickSmiles.
