I have had 2 crooked front teeth all my life and it never bothered me too much to fix it. I was mostly scared of the pain and hassle of going to the dentist to get braces adjusted but recently I ran into ads for Smile Direct Club and Snapcorrect and it got me interested.
If you have not heard of these 2 companies, they are sending out imprint kits which you use at home to take imprints of your teeth. These imprints then get mailed to a lab where they create invisalign-like teeth aligners which get sent directly to you every month.
I first started with Snapcorrect 2 weeks ago and did my imprint and sent it in. 10 days later, I contacted them and was pretty bummed out that my impression was not clear enough. I asked for a refund from Snapcorrect since I paid in full for the treatment and they refunded me in full the next day (great customer service). Not their fault but I just wanted something faster and found Smile Direct Club has 3d scan shops set up near by which means I do not need to do imprints myself. Cost wise, Smile direct club is about 500-600 more than Snapcorrect (factoring in the free retainer for Snapcorrect which costs $100 at Smiledirectclub). But I believe I would never get the imprint correct so I thought why not just go to Smiledirect club for a few hundred more. I decided to go to the Smiledirect club 3d scan shop the next day and was scanned in under 30 minutes. It was an amazing experience with the teeth scanning “wand”. Technology wise, this smile 3d scan shop amazed me with the iPads and the way everything was set up. I then paid for the treatment and left and am currently waiting for the 3d scan to be approved and for my first alligners to arrive. Will update once I start the treatment and my journey for straight teeth.
