Smile White’s clear aligners can make a huge difference to your smile and your life. But why opt for the more expensive option when there are plenty of cheap direct-to-home aligner providers out there? Well, there’s more than one reason, so let’s take a look at the downsides of those cheap kits…

Smile Direct Club:
Unveiling the Negatives and Potential Risks

Limited Supervision

Unlike aligner treatment supervised by a trusted dentist, direct-to-home aligner systems lack the direct supervision and expertise of a dental professional. While some companies offer remote monitoring by a dentist, it may not be as comprehensive or accurate as in-person consultations.

Lack of Customisation

Direct-to-home aligner systems typically use a one-size-fits-all approach, which may not be as effective as customised treatment plans created by a dentist. This can result in suboptimal tooth movement or slower progress, especially for complex cases, which is why Smile White only works with trusted local dentists.

Potential Oral Health Risks

Without proper monitoring and guidance, there is a risk of potential oral health issues going unnoticed or untreated. These may include gum disease, cavities, or underlying dental issues that need attention before or during the alignment process.

Misdiagnosis and Suitability

Without an in-person examination by a dental professional, there is a risk of misdiagnosis or improper assessment of the suitability of aligners for a particular case. Some dental conditions may require more complex treatment or may not be suitable for direct-to-home aligners, and this may go unnoticed without a proper evaluation

Inadequate Treatment for Complex Cases

Direct-to-home aligner systems are generally designed for mild to moderate teeth misalignments. Complex cases, such as severe crowding or bite issues, may require more comprehensive treatment, which may not be possible with these aligners alone.

Limited Follow-up Care

The lack of follow-up care from direct-to-home companies can make it challenging to address concerns, make adjustments, or seek Scallop Comfort Fit Architecture throughout the treatment process. Smile White guarantees your better smile, and we do that by not cutting corners.
