The first thing you’ll do is complete a very short survey on the SmileDirectClub site. It asks whether or not you have actually had braces in the past, what concerns you wish to handle (crowding, overbite, spacing, etc.), and how extreme those problems are.

The consultations and kits cost $45 each, however if it turns out that you’re not a candidate based on anything they discover, you’ll get a full refund.

I went to an in-person consultation, so that’s all I can speak to personally, but the impression kit involves filling two trays with putty, biting down into them to leave an impression of your top and bottom teeth, and taking images of your mouth with a really amusing tool that tucks into your cheeks and holds your mouth open.

This time, I simply chose to treat my leading set of teeth.

There were a couple circumstances where I had to utilize the metal file on my Swiss Army knife to sand down little sharp bits that went into my gums, but that was about the worst of it.

These feel absolutely nothing like the unbearable tightening process of braces that you probably experienced as a kid.
