Do you want to improve your smile but would rather not wear braces? Here are three at-home teeth straightening kits that can help you! 

How to straighten teeth at home

They say that first impression is everything, so it’s perfectly understandable that most people are conscious of how they look as well as of their smile. Even if your teeth are nice and white, misaligned teeth will ruin your smile. Typically, braces are the answer to this problem. However, would you want to wear braces for 18 months or more? 

Luckily, there are other solutions. Through teledentistry, remote dental guidance and modern discoveries, anyone can now use teeth straightening kits right at home. Here’s how to straighten your teeth without braces!

1. Retainers

People are told to wear retainers after completing a traditional orthodontic treatment like metal braces. However, if you only need minimal teeth correction, then you can skip the braces and go straight to using retainers.

If you are seeking an alternative to braces, this is one of the most common and cheapest solutions. SmileDirectClub offers one of the best deals for it. To get started, simply order an at-home kit. SmileDirectClub’s experienced dentists will review your application, create a customized plan for you and send your retainers to your home. Made from thermoplastic polyurethane, these retainers are made to last up to six months and you need to wear them every night. Do note that this treatment may only work for minimal teeth correction (such as a couple of crooked teeth) and your dentist may still require you to go through another treatment first, such as aligners or braces.

SmileDirectClub retainers are priced at:

  • $99 for one set
  • $198 for two sets, with the third one free
