Who is actually behind the brand name NewSmile?

NewSmile is a company from Vancouver, Canada, that specializes in the manufacture of clear aligners.

These aligners are a popular alternative to traditional braces as they are virtually invisible and removable.

NewSmile has set itself the goal of making orthodontics more accessible and comfortable.

The company was founded in 2020, making it one of the newer providers on the aligner market.

Tooth correction with NewSmile Clear Aligners takes place entirely from home. For this reason, the product is one of the most cost-effective currently available on the market.

Important to know: Currently, NewSmile’s invisible aligners are only available in the US, Canada and the UK.

The product is therefore currently of no interest to most patients from Europe and other parts of the world.

Compared to other providers – such as DrSmile – there is also relatively little information about NewSmile Clear Aligner on the Internet.

The aligner startup also has a much smaller presence on social media and YouTube.

While DrSmile’s invisible aligners are already available in over 100 partner practices across Germany, NewSmile does not work with dentists or orthodontists and does not have its own practices.

Instead, the impressions required for the tooth correction must be made at home. However, experts advise against this practice.

How does tooth correction with NewSmile aligners work?

Invisible aligners, also known as clear aligners, are a modern and aesthetically pleasing alternative to conventional braces.

Here you can find out how NewSmile’s invisible braces work:

  • Each aligner is individually designed based on an impression of the patient’s dentition. The impressions allow the dentist or orthodontist to create a precise treatment plan that determines the desired movement of each individual tooth.
  • Treatment is carried out in phases. A separate set of aligners is produced for each phase. Each aligner is designed to gradually move the teeth into the correct position. As a rule, each aligner is worn for about two weeks before moving on to the next set.
  • The aligners exert gentle but continuous pressure on certain teeth to gradually move them in the desired direction. Compared to conventional braces, this process is often less painful or uncomfortable.
  • The aligners are made of a clear, BPA-free plastic material that is robust and flexible at the same time. Their transparency makes them almost invisible on the teeth.
  • For effective treatment, the aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day. They can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing and cleaning teeth.
  • The duration of treatment varies depending on the complexity of the malocclusion and takes an average of 4 to 6 months.
  • Once the aligner treatment is complete, a retainer is used to stabilize the teeth in their new position and prevent them from moving back.

The alternative: Night Aligner from New Smile

The special thing about NewSmile Clear Aligner: In addition to regular invisible braces, which are worn 22 hours a day, the company also offers night aligners.

These only need to be worn in the evening and at night, i.e. for around 10 hours a day – but the duration of treatment is extended accordingly.

Who are the NewSmile Clear Aligners suitable for?

With the NewSmile Clear Aligners, only slight to moderate corrections of the visible front teeth can be made.

In the case of complicated malocclusions – such as severe overbite, underbite, crossbite or other types of malocclusion – NewSmile’s invisible braces reach their limits.

Incidentally, this applies to most aligner providers, including Smile Direct Club, Inman Aligner, Bestsmile, Harmonieschiene, Smileunion, Six Month Smiles, Braceless, Impress Aligner, LetSmile and PlusDental.

Currently, only Invisalign products are considered for serious tooth correction.

Important to know: Tooth correction with NewSmile aligners is also only possible for adolescents and adults who have all permanent teeth.

Wearing and caring for NewSmile aligners

Each set of aligners is worn for a specific period of time – usually two weeks.

The invisible braces should remain in the mouth for at least 22 hours a day to achieve the desired result.

You should really only take them out for eating and dental care. Drinking is generally not a problem with NewSmile clear aligners.

However, this only applies to drinks that do not contain sugar and do not have a coloring effect.

If you want to drink red wine, cola or black tea, for example, you should either take them out beforehand or clean them briefly after consumption.

This is because the color pigments contained in the liquid can cause the sensitive splints to gradually lose transparency and eventually become visible on the teeth.

Sugary drinks can stick to the invisible aligners and damage your teeth in the long run.

The night aligners from NewSmile are worn for 10 hours a day. You should therefore use them after dinner so that they can remain in your mouth for at least 10 hours until breakfast.

How does the treatment with NewSmile aligners work?

Treatment with NewSmile Clear Aligners begins with a questionnaire.

The company uses a few questions to determine whether you are eligible for treatment with the invisible aligners.

You have to answer these questions:

  • Why do you want to straighten your teeth?
  • Are you 13 years or older?
  • Which image best represents what you want to change? (sample images are displayed)
  • Have you worn braces in the past?
  • Do you wear a fixed retainer?
  • To which address can the company send your results?

At the end you also have to upload a photo of your teeth.

Select payment plan and order impression set

If you are eligible for treatment, the next step is to select a payment plan – you can choose between the fast-track option, a one-off payment, or a monthly payment plan.

You also order your impression set by post to your home. You can use it to create impressions of your teeth from home.

You will be supported by a specialist with whom you are connected via a video call.

After you have made the impressions, they are sent to NewSmile using the prepaid shipping label provided.

3D simulation and start of treatment

In the next step, a dentist or orthodontist assesses your impressions on behalf of NewSmile.

You will then receive an electronic 3D treatment preview that simulates both the course of treatment and the final result.

You can then decide for or against the treatment. If you would like to have your teeth corrected, your aligners and retainers will be made individually for you.

Everything you need for the treatment will also be conveniently delivered to your home.

In addition to the aligners, you will also receive chewable tablets to help you insert them, a whitening foam and a small tool to help you remove the aligners.

You can therefore start treatment straight away. The aligners must be worn for at least 22 hours a day (the night aligners only 10 hours) and are changed every two to three weeks according to the schedule.

NewSmile prices: How much does the treatment cost?

NewSmile scores with a relatively transparent price structure and offers its customers two price models: Light and Medium.

  • Fast Track: $1495 – including impression set, retainer and bleaching foam
  • Monthly Plan: $55/month, $0 down payment, 36 months – includes impression set, retainer and bleaching foam
  • Monthly Plan: $94/month, $295 down payment, 15 months – includes impression set, retainer and bleaching foam
  • Night Aligners: $1,595 – including impression set, retainer and whitening foam
  • Night Aligners Monthly Plan: $58/month, $0 down payment, 36 months – includes impression set, retainer and bleaching foam
  • Night Aligners Monthly Plan: $100/month, $295 down payment, 15 months – includes impression set, retainer and bleaching foam

This makes NewSmile Clear Aligners one of the more affordable aligners on the market. However, the company also offers relatively little service.

For comparison: The slightly higher DrSmile prices include a much more modern 3D scan, personal consultation, a satisfaction guarantee and many other services.

Unfortunately, the costs of dental correction for adults are not usually covered by health insurance.

However, we still recommend that you do not focus exclusively on price when choosing an aligner provider.

Instead, rely primarily on authentic reviews and research lots of testimonials on the Internet.

Conclusion on the subject of NewSmile: Does the product deliver what it promises?

The experiences of former and current patients make it clear that discreet tooth correction is definitely possible with NewSmile aligners.

Invisible dental trays actually work well in many cases and it is not an empty promise.

Nevertheless, we can only recommend the aligners from NewSmile to a limited extent, as the treatment is carried out one hundred percent from home.

Dentists and orthodontists strongly advise against taking dental impressions at home. A professional should always take another look at the condition of your teeth before undergoing aligner treatment.

Healthy teeth and gums are indeed a basic prerequisite for successful treatment. In the case of undetected diseases, aligners can even damage the teeth.

Last but not least, we found it somewhat difficult to find authentic experiences of former and current NewSmile patients on the Internet.

For this reason, the established provider DrSmile remains our recommendation for your teeth correction.

There is a wealth of experience on the Internet, the price structure is transparent and the company can look back on over 150,000 successfully completed dental corrections.

DrSmile also offers not only good value for money but also a satisfaction guarantee if you are not one hundred percent happy with the result.
