If you’re self-conscious about your smile, but weren’t about to run out and get braces at this stage of life, don’t worry because there is now an app for that.
OrthoFX just launched earlier this month and is the first company to offer custom teeth aligners with weekly delivery to your doorstep. For $3,950 (payments plans are available, thankfully) you get unlimited doctor visits and care, replacements for lost or damaged aligners, teeth whitening and a 3-year guarantee.
Now, don’t get us wrong–it’s still totally an investment, but it also couldn’t be more convenient versus the old way of getting orthodontist care (get a referral from your dentist, wait for an appointment). It just feels like a really modern way to deal with a pretty common but totally daunting issue of having crooked teeth.
And since it’s 2019, the company uses selfies to generate a free digital 3D model of what your teeth could look like with a little straightening. Goals!

Take a test drive. For 95 bucks, you’ll get a dental exam, teeth scan, and your first aligners shipped within 24 hours. #Honestly⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #orthofx #smilemore #beauty #teeth #dentistry #dentalcare #smiles #dentist #ortho #straightteeth #cosmeticdentistry #orthodontics #smile #smilemore #smilegoals #tooth #destistrylife #dentalphotography #oralhealth #smiledesign #smilemakeover #makeover #cosmetics #makeup #health #aligners
From there you have the option of “try it” before you buy it. The test aligners are shipping with 48 hours, and you can try them at-home before buying the whole package.
The brand’s aligners are also touted as being 40% less painful than competitors because of a “unique FXTetra build” that sits comfortably on the teeth, rather than your gums, to avoid irritation.
