By now, you’ve probably heard about the many at-home orthodontic treatments on the market that promise cheaper, faster results from the comfort of your own home. At Sensational Smiles, we understand the temptation of a quicker and more affordable route to the smile of your dreams, but these mail-order systems are basically do-it-yourself orthodontics. You wouldn’t DIY a filling or pull your own tooth, right? So why would you DIY your braces or aligners?
The problem with mail-order orthodontic systems is that they aren’t backed by trained orthodontists. In fact, a dentist only needs to complete a single weekend course to be able to offer these treatment options, whereas an orthodontist has years of speciality training. The best you can expect from at-home orthodontics is inadequate results. The worst? Long-lasting damage to your teeth that could take years to undo.
We believe you can have it all: the convenience of at-home Invisalign treatment and the expertise of a board-certified orthodontist. You shouldn’t have to compromise when it comes to your smile. Currently available in the Chicagoland area, Sensational Smiles offers quality results and expert care. Here’s how the Sensational Smiles process works.
Step 1: Come See Us for a Free Consultation
First, you’ll visit one of our Diamond+ Invisalign Providers for a free consultation. During this initial appointment, we’ll do a digital scan of your teeth to get a better idea of your unique situation. Then we’ll create a computerized 3D model of your mouth. We’ll use this data to build your customized treatment plan.
Step 2: Discuss the Investment
Before you start treatment, you’ll obviously want to know what Sensational Smiles costs. We have great news for you: our at-home Invisalign costs 60% less than traditional treatment! You can choose to pay for your entire treatment up front, or split it into monthly payments of just $125. Whatever your financial situation, we have a way to help you get the smile you’ve always wanted.
Step 3: A Diamond+ Invisalign Provider Will Create your Custom Treatment Plan
Sensational Smiles is proud to partner with Diamond+ Invisalign Providers who offer real Invisalign treatment. No DIY orthodontics here — you can be confident that you’re getting the real deal and the best results. Once we have the model of your mouth, we’ll map out your personalized treatment plan using the state-of-the-art technology that has made Invisalign the gold standard in clear aligners. Your treatment plan will include a series of plastic aligners that will guide the movement of your teeth to their ideal position. We’ll send the plan directly to Invisalign where your aligners will be made.
Step 4: Pick Up Your Aligners
Next up, it’s time to start treatment! Once we’ve received your aligners, all you have to do is come pick them up. And, of course, you’ll need to follow your orthodontists’ instructions. That means wearing your aligners for at least 20-22 hours every day, only removing them to eat, brush and floss. You’ll also want to brush and floss your teeth before you put your aligners back in.
Step 5: Continue Your Treatment from the Comfort of Home
Now you’re set to straighten your smile conveniently from home. As you continue through your Sensational Smiles treatment, you’ll move onto each new set of aligners according to your orthodontist’s prescription. The best part? You’ll still receive expert care and oversight to make sure your treatment is on track. This is what truly sets Sensational Smiles apart from other at-home orthodontic systems: you get peace of mind that a board-certified orthodontic specialist has your back.
Step 6: Show Off Your Smile
Congratulations! At this stage, you’re ready to see the brand new you. When you finish your final set of aligners, we’ll have you come in one last time so we can make sure your smile looks its absolute best. We’ll send you home with a clear retainer that you will wear every night going forward to retain your sensational smile.
