treatment went very well. Once I got used to the schedule for the aligners it was very easy to follow. Even my regular dentist was happy with the result.

James

Candid was great, my teeth now look better than ever and I have never had so much confidence in my smile. I lost a lot of weight on this program. Some may see that as a good thing some as a bad. OveraMore

This company changed my life, I was so insecure about my teeth for years, but didn't have the money or the patience to deal with braces. Candid fixed my teeth in six months at a fraction of the price

My experience has been satisfactory. My teeth are lovely, and I didn't have to make any appointments!

Russell

Very convenient, effective treatment! Wish I would have done this sooner.

Baoyi

Obvious change for both the top and bottom teeth. The bottom is fully straight and if the front teeth can move in a little bit more that would be great. So far, I’m pretty satisfy with the result.

10 months flew by! This was a easy process and now I’m going to do it for my 13 yr for much less than traditional braces!

It took some getting used to but many people had no idea I was wearing them and I’m proud of the smile I have now.

What a great program. Total support all the way and fantastic results! My bottom teeth have never been straight before. Now, it's hard not to check them out whenever I'm near a mirror!

Thank you for all you did: the support is great

20 years of experience on average

Experts in clear aligner treatment

Trained in cutting-edge remote care

Here’s how you get from starter kit to straighter teeth.

Let Dr. Lynn, our Chief Clinical Officer, walk you through the process.
01
Show us your teeth
Your starter kit has everything you need to take photos and impressions at home.
02
Our doctors assess your case
Then they’ll design your treatment plan. You’ll get a 3D preview when it’s ready.
03
Your aligners, delivered
Once you approve your plan, you can order your aligners and start treatment.

Questions from the community

Sharon H. asked

Does it actually work?

Yes. Clear aligners have been around for over 20 years now, and treatment outcomes are well-substantiated. Plus, we only work with orthodontists — specialists who complete a 2-3 year residency in tooth movement after dental school — and provide remote monitoring throughout treatment. So the same doctor who designs and prescribes your treatment plan will track your progress to make sure your teeth are moving properly.

Mackenzie K. asked

What’s the expected timeframe for treatment?

Eric C. asked

Is it truly safe?

Sadie M. asked

How can remote treatment be as good as seeing someone in person?

Tyler S. asked

How much does treatment cost?

Tascha M. asked

I’m not sure I can afford treatment, how can I pay?

Jason L. asked

How do I know it will work for me?
