What are clear aligners?

Clear Aligners are transparent plastic devices designed to be worn around your teeth to properly adjust and align them. Clear Aligners are customized treatment for each individual after proper analysis and diagnosis of their current teeth alignment. They are made with robust plastic and are a more convenient alternative to braces. Unlike traditional braces, Clear Aligners are transparent, and as a result, they won’t be noticeable to the naked eye when you wear them.

How do your clear aligners work?

That’s a great question! We are so glad you asked that.

So, here’s how it works!

We will start with an assessment of your current teeth condition. To complete your assessment, we would need the impression of your teeth, some information about your medical history, and some beautiful selfies, yay!

How we take your teeth impressions?

Well, there are two ways.

  • We can send you a home impression kit. Once you receive the kit, follow the instructions on how to take an impression of your teeth, and then send us your teeth impression trays in the same box from your location.
  • You can also visit any SmylUSA facility for a 20 to 30 minutes dental scan where one of our trained technicians can take the impressions of your teeth using a scanner.

Once we have your impressions along with the medical history information and your selfies, we will assess if our treatment is suitable for your condition or not. Our expert dentists review each case. If yes, then one of our expert dentists will create your treatment plan, and upon approval of the design, we will deliver your customized aligner treatment at your doorstep.

You can then proceed with the guided treatment plan. In addition to this, we also send you our exclusive teeth whitening kit so that you can use it simultaneously, reaching towards your dream smile.

Once you are done with your treatment and have that perfect smile in place, you can place an order for a set of retainers. You can also contact us freely in case you need our whitening treatment.

How much do SMYLUSA clear aligners cost?

$ 1799 One-time payment (Includes one Teeth Whitening Kit and one set of Retainers)

$ 70- $ 90 Payment in Instalments with total cost of $1999 (Three payment plans – 8 months / 12 months / 24 months)

Does the process hurt?

It hurts a bit at the start with every new set of aligners. But don’t worry, it usually fades away within a couple of days. Wearing clear aligners will not be painful. However, you should expect brief periods when moving to your next aligner that may cause slight discomfort to your teeth.

Little Pain, More Gain!

Can I get these if I have a bridge?

Sure. Just let us know about your bridge before the start of treatment, and our experienced orthodontists will examine it and determine whether you’re okay to go ahead with the treatment.

Can I get SMYLUSA aligners if I have a missing tooth?

Yes, you can. Missing tooth is not a problem!

Can I get an aligner for just my top or bottom teeth instead of both?

Yes. However, since impressions will be taken for both the top and bottom teeth, the price would be the same as getting it for both top and bottom, even if you get it for one of the two.

Can I get these if I have wisdom teeth?

You can, but it is highly recommended that you consult your dentist first and have them removed if recommended. After that, you can surely get aligners without worrying!

How long do I need to wait after having my wisdom teeth removed before I can start with SMYLUSA?

Until the extraction site is completely healed. Usually it takes about 2 weeks. We also recommend consulting your dentist after such procedures before starting our treatment.

What is an impression kit?

An impression kit is used to get an imprint of your teeth in the comfort of your home. We can deliver the impression kit to your doorstep, and you can use it to take the imprint of your teeth and then send us back your impression trays. The trays, along with your impressions, will help us assess your case and design your treatment plan.

The kit includes 4 trays, 2 sets of real putty for making the molds, and one cheek retractor to take selfies. Look at this video to learn more- – Video link

What is a Treatment Preview?

A Treatment Preview shows a digital visualization of how your teeth look now and how they will look once the treatment is over.

Is this type of treatment process safe?

Certainly, this process is approved by the FDA and should be perfectly harmless for you. It is highly recommended that you visit your dentist before getting aligners to identify and treat any pre-existing dental conditions you may have.

If they determine our aligners are not the best fit for your needs, we will refund your impression kit’s cost to you.

Can I have a crown and still use the clear aligners?

Yes! A crown will not hinder the clear aligner process.

Are clear aligners really invisible?

Yes! The aligners are clear and discreet; however, you must follow all cleaning instructions to maintain a clear look.

Can I eat with the aligners?

No, chewing in the aligners could cause them to break. Also, it would cause food to get stuck between the teeth and the aligner. Take the aligners out and store them safely into the case provided and rise before putting the aligners back in.

Can I drink in the aligners?

Nothing but cold water! You don’t want to drink anything that may cause staining to the aligners. We strictly recommend not to drink anything HOT, not even hot water.

Will I still go to the dentist?

Yes! We recommend you continue to do your regular follow-ups with your dentist to maintain your overall oral health.

How do I properly use and care for my clear aligners?

SmylUSA offers robust aligners, but they need to be taken care of to achieve the desired results.

For best and quick results, you should wear your aligners as much as you can – at least 22 hours every day. The aligners should be removed before eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth. Not wearing them long enough will destroy their purpose, and you would have to purchase new ones.

Make sure to run the aligners under cold water every time you take them out. Not washing them between applications will cause saliva remnants to build bacterial deposits on the surface.

Do not use hot water for washing since it will damage your aligners.

You have to brush your teeth in between applications, too, especially after you eat or drink. Accumulation of food particles in your aligners will cause the buildup of harmful bacteria.

When washing your aligners, make sure to use a mild soap and not toothpaste. Toothpaste is too harsh for the surface of the aligners and will cause them to look more noticeable. Also, use a separate toothbrush to clean your Aligners each time.

Can I chew gum with aligners?

Chewing gum is not recommended while wearing aligners since it can stick to the surface and cause minor damage and discomfort. If gum deposits build up on the aligners, it will just be another source of harboring bacteria, so we recommend that you avoid gum even if it is sugar-free.

Can I kiss with aligners on?

Sure! Not a problem with that.

Can I drink alcohol/coffee/energy drinks with aligners?

Drinks aside from water or other colorless beverages could stain your aligners, so we would recommend that you avoid them.

How long do I have to wear the aligners?

It entirely depends on your case. Different people may have to wear it for different periods, depending on each case’s severity. Generally, aligners need a shorter time than braces do. The time might vary between 4-10 months.

How many hours a day should I wear the aligners?

For best and quick results, you should wear your aligners as much as you can – as close to 24 hours every day. They must be removed before eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth. Not wearing them long enough will destroy their purpose, and you would have to purchase new ones.

What if I lose an aligner?

Don’t worry if you do. Just replace it with your next aligner and make sure you wear it for the time lost to replace it with the new aligners and the full time of the new aligner.

How often should I change my aligners?

Follow your specific plan that the doctor has set for you. In most cases, aligners are to be changed on a bi-weekly basis.

Can I speed up the aligner process?

Unfortunately, you cannot. The treatment plan is designed to align your teeth gradually to the right position. Any attempt to speed up the process could hamper the effective completion of your treatment.

Does a licensed dentist or orthodontist review my case?

Yes, at SmylUSA, all cases are reviewed by a licensed dentist or orthodontist.

Can I view what my expected results will be after treatment is completed?

Yes, we offer Treatment Preview which is a digital visualization of how your teeth looks now and how they will look once the treatment is over.

How long is the typical treatment process?

The entire treatment process varies between 4 to 10 months from the date of receiving the aligners. It also depends on the severity of your case.

How do I choose between an impression kit or a scan?

You may choose the option most convenient for you, either book a dental scan at one of our SmlyUSA facility, or you can order our home impression kit. We have a thorough process with which we design our aligners for you, and the quality of the aligner design does not depend on the option you choose, an impression kit, or a scan.

Retainers are available at a much lower cost compared to the market price, at $99.

Can I order just a retainer?

Sure! However, you can do so only if you have received aligners from us before.

How often should I wear my retainers after the treatment?

For the first two weeks following your treatment, you need to wear your retainers for 22 hours a day. After two weeks have passed, you can wear them only at night. However, if you feel discomfort or tightness while wearing them, it means you need to wear them longer. In this case, continue to wear them during the day until the discomfort is completely gone. Then you can only wear them at night.
