Are you searching Google for mail-order aligners to straighten your teeth?
While mail-order aligners might seem tempting, thorough research reveals many significant drawbacks. These DIY aligners could adversely affect your bite, potentially leading to more complex and costly dental issues later.
With Smile Direct Club’s recent bankruptcy filing, reliability has become a major concern. Imagine investing in a treatment from a company that might not exist tomorrow or might cease providing essential new aligners to you in the middle of your treatment that you paid for because of their financial disaster.
We understand that mail-order aligners may seem appealing as an affordable treatment option; however, if you dive into some research, you will understand the many serious issues you can face after using mail-order aligners. Mail-order aligners can mess up your bite, making your situation much worse and more expensive for a real dentist to fix later.
Get the world’s leading invisible aligners, professionally managed by our licensed and certified dental experts, and utilizing our monthly payment plan options.
Opting for at-home teeth straightening without a dentist’s supervision might sound convenient, but it’s risky. Our team at East Village Dental, backed by years of extended education, licensing, and certification, is dedicated to providing you and your family the highest standard of dental care. Trust us to guide you safely and effectively towards the smile of your dreams. Visit East Village Dental today – where professional care meets affordability in teeth straightening solutions.
Mail-order aligner companies don’t have any highly experienced local dentists or orthodontists who value you personally and take care of your smile. Because of that, these mail order aligners can often ruin your bite and cause irreversible damage to your teeth.
Our skilled dentists at East Village Dental don’t recommend mail-order aligners for anyone because of a lack of dental expertise and hidden costs. We recommend you come in for a FREE Invisalign consultation at our caring and friendly dental clinic and get the confident, charismatic smile of your dreams under the supervision of our highly experienced and caring dentists.

Invisalign Braces: Why You Should Not Use Mail-Order Aligners
Mail order aligners don’t work for everyone and fail to address important dental issues that Invisalign does. Invisalign clear braces correct teeth and bites for patients with mild to moderate issues, whereas Mail Order aligners fail to address the following issues:
- Tooth gaps
- Crooked teeth not visible from your smile
- Crowded teeth
- Canted teeth
- Underbites, overbites, and crossbites
Can you meet your dental and orthodontic needs without visiting a local dentist? No! This is why we suggest seeking the expertise of East Village Dental professionals. We will give you a confident and charismatic new smile with our world famous Invisalign procedures.
Mail Order Aligners Could Cost You Much More Than You Think!
You will find that mail-order aligner treatment will ultimately lead you to higher costs, including unforeseen problems and poor results, which will drive you back to the dentist’s office for corrective treatment. Invisalign provides the best teeth straightening options at affordable prices.
You May Need to Pay for Separate X-Rays, Scans, or Impressions
Sometimes, the prices that these services advertise may seem more attractive than what an in-person dental practice can offer.
Most mail-order aligners do not include the cost of separate X-rays, scans, or even impression kits. You will have to visit a dental expert to help you take care of these extra services, including:
- Dental x-rays
- Regular check-ups
- Before opting for mail-order aligners, you should be aware of the hidden costs and risks these day aligners bring.
The Impressions May Be Faulty
Taking dental impressions with goopy impression material is imprecise and hard to execute at home without the expertise of a dental expert. It takes a trained eye even to tell if an impression went wrong. We prefer to use digital impressions because they are much more precise.
If experienced dentists struggle with impressions, will patients always get it right at home? Absolutely not!
How will your clear teeth aligners be customized precisely for your teeth if the impressions are faulty from the beginning? With the wrong impressions, the following could go wrong:
- Your aligners won’t fit.
- You could injure your teeth.
- The treatment could move your teeth incorrectly.
- The length of your treatment time could be longer.
Clear Braces May Not Work for Everyone
Complex cases need professional planning and an experienced eye from your family dentist. In fact, during your FREE Invisalign consultation, we could even recommend a different treatment if it is best for your bite alignment. We recommend coming in for a No obligation FREE Invisalign consultation so our highly experienced invisalign dentists can properly assess your unique dental needs.
Your Treatment Is Not Properly Adjusted
Mail-order aligners will not be properly adjusted to your unique jaw structure and tooth needs. They can only help with a first set of aligners, with no adjustment or refinement as the teeth move!
You can NOT Get Orthodontic Acceleration with mail-order aligners. Our dental office in downtown Calgary offers advanced techniques for accelerated orthodontics. In some cases, this speeds up treatment by about 50%!
Imagine your Invisalign case done in half the time with a more beautiful and straighter smile.
But amazing results like this are only available when your Invisalign dentist can use in-person acceleration techniques—which you can’t get through the mail.
Can Mail-Order Aligners Mess up My Bite?
If mail-order aligners were to push your teeth to the wrong positions—based on faulty impressions, for example—that could misalign your bite.
A problematic bite, such as an overbite or open bite, may lead to:
- TMJ or TMD
- A clicking jaw joint
- Sleep Apnea issues
- Joint pain
- Rapid tooth wear
Mail-Order Technology Is Usually Outdated
At East Village Dental, we consistently upgrade our technology, treatments, and approaches every time you come in for an office visit. We ensure you get the latest and best of everything to get dental services that work for you.
When you’re dealing with large mail-order companies, you are dealing with a corporation that wants the money and doesn’t value you personally or your dental health.
