Smile Direct Club is one of the most popular companies nowadays because of its mail-in program that allows patient to have their aligners in a more convenient manner. The process starts with the company sending a kit to the patient’s house which will be used to create 3D mold of their teeth. The mold is then sent to dental professional that will make the retainer plan and the patient will be sent a preview of hoe their future smile will be. The patient will then go to the dentist for a basic check-up. After which, they will just need to wait for their aligners to be sent through the mail and they are ready to be worn.
Many would ask why people would choose this method compared to the traditional one and the answer would be because it is cheaper. According to the website, the new method is 60 per cent cheaper compared to the traditional one.

Dental professionals said that aligners can produce positive result but is not always the case for all patients. This is the reason why visiting a professional is recommended because they know the best method of orthodontics that will work for every patient.
