Society’s preference for straight, white smiles can make some people feel self-conscious and wanting a change. Getting perfectly aligned teeth is a bit of an investment, in both money and time. This is why mail-order teeth aligners have become so popular. However, the promise of less money in the short term is not worth the risk that mail-order aligners pose.
Mail-order teeth alignment companies claim to offer a way to straighten your smile without costly and inconvenient trips to the orthodontist’s office. With this method, you go to a local center or use a kit sent to your home. Next, clear alignment trays are mailed to your home, where you wear them for a certain amount of time until you’ve achieved a straight smile at half the cost of traditional braces!
As with most other things, you get what you pay for! Mail-order teeth aligners may be more affordable, but they come with some serious risks. Here at Kuhni Orthodontic Studio, we know that orthodontic treatment is a medical procedure and should be performed by a professional.
