I recently started a journey to straighten my teeth at the age of 49.
Yes, yes I know, I am a bit old for braces, but when this offer came across my android phone, I simply could not resist it.
Last time I had checked for how much braces/invisalign would be; I realized that I still could not afford it. Invisalign through my dentist was about 6k while braces…well let’s just forget about them altogether. The price tag of over 10k was way too rich for my blood.
Of course, since I had done some research about it, the “Smile Direct Club” ads started popping up on my screens.
After doing some sleuthing and reviews searches, including videos such as these ones below, I decided that this might be the right fit (pardon the pun) for me!
Although I have seen other videos mentioning that customer service is a very different experience when you contact them directly as opposed to contacting them by email, and you generally get better results if you go to a smile care office rather than do your own impressions which makes sense (one is done by putty and the other by digital image). I found my nearest smile direct office and booked my first appointment.
The appointment as opposed to the impressions cost nothing and you get lots of free goodies, as seen in this video. The 3D images of what my smile would look like when finished pretty much clinched it for me and I was off to the races. After 3 1/2 weeks, I received my aligners and started the process that night (it’s been said that to deal with pain, it’s better to wear them at night when starting or changing out your aligners) since it’s give a good 7 to 8 hours of unconsciousness as to not feel the discomfort.
Here is my first video on the subject.
Putting on my second set of aligners was quite a shock and very different than the first set which was just slip on and go as you can see from the next video….
