With the rise of dating apps, work-related extracurriculars (Frying Pan happy hours anyone?), and an all-around more social (read: Instagrammable) lifestyle, getting a killer smile has been on many people’s minds these days. However, the price tag for straighter and brighter teeth, brace-face flashbacks, and time commitment can feel too overwhelming to get started on the journey to a flawless smile.

Enter Candid, the direct-to-consumer invisible teeth aligner company with an answer to the ever-present smile conundrum. Now you can get your dream smile for less money in less time.

Here’s how it works:

Candid sends you a $95 modeling kit to take at-home impressions. From there, they review your impressions to create a 3D plan illustrating how their invisible aligners will shift and correct your teeth into a new smile. Once you approve the plan, they’ll create and directly send you invisible aligners in one neat box (with whitening solution to boot!).

Prefer an in-person consultation on your schedule?

In addition to providing a teeth straightening solution for under $2,000 (so much less than traditional alternatives!), you can also visit a Candid Studio™ at a time that works for your schedule. Just head to the Candid Studio™ in the heart of Chelsea (555 6th Avenue in NYC to be exact) to book an appointment for a quick and easy scan.

At the studio, a helpful associate will take eight pictures of your smile and bite, then discuss your dental history, learn about your smile goals, and conduct the actual scan of your mouth. The process is seamless, and you can watch the model of your mouth unfold on the screen as each tooth is scanned (so cool!).

From there, they send your scans to an orthodontist, who creates and sends a 3D treatment plan to your email within 2 weeks. Once you approve that plan, aligners are created and arrive at your doorstep in 3-4 weeks. Another perk -- aligners come with a cute carrying case AND free whitening solution!

The best part? You get in, out and on the road to your new smile in a New York minute - or 30 minutes to be exact. The Candid team makes you feel comfortable and valued, two things that are all too rare in most dental care appointments. If you’re in the market for straighter teeth, head over to the Candid Studio™ today!
