SmileDirectClub offers bright on teeth whitening supplies in addition to its clear aligner offerings. Bright on products utilize the same enamel-safe whitening agent that dentists use, but products are less than half the cost of professional teeth whitening services. The company offers at-home whitening kits for different amounts of time, including one year kits, six-month kits, and touch up options. 

SmileDirectClub claims that using its bright on whitening gel for one week, five minutes each morning and night, can whiten teeth up to nine shades and last for six months. The company’s products also include a 20-LED accelerator light that is powered by smart phones, its own electric toothbrush, and whitening toothpaste.

The Good

  • LED Light
  • Pen Supply
  • Phone Compatibility

LED Light

SmileDirectClub has a variety of packages available for teeth whitening options. Most of these packages include an LED light which accelerates teeth whitening and is three times faster than teeth whitening strips. The blue wavelength on the LED light accelerates the bright on formula, creating a whiter smile faster than others. The bright on whitening removes years of tough stains and transforms your teeth with enamel-safe whitening agents approved by dentists. The treatment can last an average of six months, although many customers have reported whiter teeth immediately after use. 

Pen Supply

Also found in the teeth whitening packages purchased through SmileDirectClub are premium teeth whitening pens. The pens feature mint flavors, fast absorbing technology, and have a no-mess brush applicator. A whitening pen is a great way to touch up a specific tooth or certain area with a stain that needs extra whitening. The easy-to-use pens provide professional-quality teeth whitening all from the comfort of home. No need to go to the dentist's office; the oral care products are all available for at-home use.

Phone Compatibility

Something unique about SmileDirectClub is the compatibility between devices. Not only does the hands-free, smartphone powered LED accelerator light whiten your teeth, but it also connects with your android or iPhone. This makes it easy to whiten your teeth everywhere. Results make your teeth notably whiter and brighter.

The Bad

  • Can't Whiten Teeth While Wearing Aligners

Can't Whiten Teeth While Wearing Aligners

SmileDirectClub also provides clear aligner bundles for people who want to straighten their teeth at home. Some invisible braces providers offer teeth whitening solutions that pair with your aligners so you can whiten your teeth while simultaneously wearing your aligners and straightening your teeth. SmileDirectClub's teeth whitening kit is separate from its aligner treatment, so you'll need to whiten your teeth separately and won't be able to put your teeth whitening solution on while wearing your aligners. 

However, this is convenient for people who only want to whiten their teeth and don't plan on purchasing the invisible braces treatment, so it may be a positive that SmileDirectClub sells its teeth whitening separately.

The Bottom Line

SmileDirectClub offers great products like the LED accelerator light and bright on kit, compatibility among technology, and customizable smile-correcting clear aligners. You are getting a great deal for the product as well as fast shipping and high-quality teeth whitening. You can also make an appointment or order your impression kit for SmileDirectClub aligners to see how your smile can be improved.

Kimberly Portland, OR

Everytime ive spoke or went into a smile direct office. I was greeted with kindness, they go out of their way to support their costumers and make a point of listening to all and any concerns you may have! They go above and beyond. I also love how to accept payments. I live month to month with 3 children and its very affordable. Highly recommend smile direct!

They definitely deserve five stars, they've helped me out throughout this whole process of getting straight days without the extra cost, anytime I had a question or just a little concerned I would DM the Instagram account and they would answer within an hour. They are very helpful and kind and send text messages and emails every time you need to switch out your liners for the new ones all together my experience has been great with Smile Direct Club.

Excellent customer service. From sign up to receiving my aligners was fast and efficient. Quality of everything in the purple box is very good. Smile Direct Club has refined the entire process into a painless exciting experience. Amazing dramitic results in just three months. With just two months to go I'll have a restored perfect smile.

I've had major crowding in my teeth for many years. I really could not afford the extravagant cost of braces or Invisalign. Smile Direct is the only service provider that allowed me to not undergo a credit check to make payments. The customer service was a great and pleasant experience. Everyone was friendly. The processing times and delivery times were unusually expedient for a high-volume, busy company with so many orders to fulfill.

I'm really happy with all the information and materials I recieved and the reminders. It's very easy to use, keep track, and my teeth are shifting. But some of the aligners do scratch my gums and inside of my mouth, so I've had to get dental wax in addition. But if the end result gets me what I'm hoping for okay.

Was easy to do. Directions thorough. And they're not just for your money and take on any and evehone. My case was too severe so they didn't accept me. However they claim you get your money back if they don't and I've never seen my money back. Oh well I guess.

I loved being able to brush a whitening agent onto my own teeth with the pens they produce. However, the gel did not whiten as well as I thought they would, I saw very little difference in the coloring of my teeth, and they did not keep the whitened color after about a week.

The company does not know how to scale and grow. They do not share the truth and clearly are unable to make the profit winnings promised to investors. This company has never had a good finance dept. people have been taken advantage of and honestly when you first start you think that you're joining smart people at an established company but it is do or die and everyone is making it up as they go. Which is partial to what led them to take a deep dive in stock because everyone is scrambling to take care of the business with band aids and tape. The company culture is toxic and political. This place is really a lost cause.

Toni Congedo Bend, OR

Do not waste your money. Get aligned a that a live orthodontist can review and adjust. The fit was horrible. The slug era buckled and could not accommodate the crowding. Not once did a “smile agent” ask about the fit at each check In. How do I know how they fit? I rely on the professionals to know that. Submit 3 photos each time for a review to trust they know exactly what is happen. Zero dialog. Invest your money properly and see a real live orthodontist that cares what your treatment plan is and how effective it is.
