October 09, 2018

A confident smile is a powerful tool that everyone deserves to wear with pride. Unfortunately, some of us aren’t exactly fond of the dental flaws we’ve been given, but each of us has the power to change that!

The first step to loving your smile begins with a dental impression kit from Smilelove. We send the kit straight to your door, you follow our easy step-by-step instructions to create a mold of your teeth, and voilà! The journey has begun, quick and simple!


But what happens next?


You’ll be pleased to learn that the following steps are just as simple as the home impression kit.


  1. Create a personalized strategy
  2. Preview your smile plan
  3. Receive your invisible aligners in the mail
  4. Transform your teeth
  5. Check in with the experts

In this article, we’ll explain each step in detail so you have a full understanding of how we will help you obtain that beautiful pearly-white grin you’ve been dreaming of. Here is what you can expect after you complete the impression kit.

Planning and Preparation

Once you’ve sent us your mold you created using the home impression kit, one of our licensed dental experts will review the mold and begin crafting the best strategy for your teeth. Just like a traditional dental health practitioner, our team of professionals create a personalized month-to-month plan to help you achieve your smile goals. Unlike a traditional dental health practitioner, this doesn’t require several in-office visits.

Sneak Peak

Once your smile plan has been finalized and reviewed by one of our dental experts, it’s time for a sneak peek at the final result (a.k.a. your dream smile). Not long after sending your completed impressions, you will receive a preview of our plans and a sneak peek of what your smile will look like at the end of your transformation. After you approve your personalized smile plan, we can get to work!

Receiving Your Invisible Aligners

After the home impression kit, the planning, and the sneak peek, it’s time to put our plans for your smile into action. You will receive your invisible aligners, shipped right to your door and ready to use! Well, almost ready.


As anxious as you may be to begin your smile transformation, it’s important that you clean your aligners before use. Give them a good, thorough cleaning with soap and hot water before you slide them into place.

Initiate Transformation

In just three steps and a couple of weeks, you’ll be ready to begin your smile transformation with your customized set of invisible aligners from your dental impression kit. Pop those babies in and let them do the rest of the work. Wear your aligners as instructed—which is pretty much all the time. The only time you should remove your aligners is when you’re brushing your teeth, eating, or drinking a beverage that isn’t water.


Some users make the mistake of thinking their invisible aligners act as a shield for their teeth, so they become negligent when it comes to their oral hygiene; however, this assumption is incorrect. While the aligners will fit nice and snug against your teeth, it is possible for saliva and bacteria to get trapped beneath them, which can increase your risk of developing cavities. Keep up good oral hygiene habits, and take the time to investigate other common misassumptions and myths about teeth-straightening.

Routine Checkups

At Smilelove, we don’t just ship your aligners and move on. We’re with you throughout the entire process to ensure your expectations are being met and things are going as planned when you get your dental impression kit. As you transform your teeth at home, you can expect regular, remote checkups with one of our licensed dental professionals about your progress and common side effects of wearing aligners. These brief reviews will allow our experts to make sure you’re on track to achieving your smile goals and give you the opportunity to express any questions or concerns you may have along the way.


That’s really all there is to it! See? We told you the process was as simple as the home impression kit! In only five steps, you can have your dream smile! So what are you waiting for? Find out how you can get your impression kit for free and start your journey today!
