Affordable, Local Clear Aligners

Happy young woman using Nu Smile Aligners in Eatontown

You may be interested in clear aligners, but you hesitate to schedule a consultation for Invisalign because you have heard that it is expensive. You may shy away from DIY systems like Byte and SmileDirectClub because you would prefer to have in-person care throughout your treatment. Is there another solution? Yes! Visit us to learn about Nu Smile Aligners in Eatontown. Dr. G personally designed this treatment with the goal of providing top-quality, affordable clear aligners to patients in our community.

Why Choose Nu Dental Eatontown for Nu Smile Aligners?

How Do Nu Smile Aligners Work?

Nu Smile Aligners work similarly to Invisalign. Treatment starts after you schedule a consultation with our team. After we determine that clear aligners are right for you, we scan your teeth with a digital impression tool, then plan out your tooth movements. Your clear aligners are fabricated in a local facility, after which you must wear each set for 20 – 22 hours each day for about two weeks before moving onto the next. Your teeth will gradually move into their proper positions. Throughout your treatment period, you will visit us regularly for checkups.

Benefits of Nu Smile Aligners

Nu Smile aligners offer all the benefits you would expect from Invisalign. The aligners are made out of high-quality material that feels comfortable on the teeth and is designed for precise tooth movements. They are also discreet, so onlookers won’t notice them right away. You can remove them at mealtimes and when you brush your teeth, meaning that your normal routine will be disrupted as little as possible.

Additional advantages of Nu Smile Aligners include:

Crowded Teeth

Crowded, overlapping teeth can be challenging to clean. As they trap food between them, you may be at a heightened risk of gum disease, decay, bad breath, and other oral health issues. Fortunately, Nu Smile Aligners are often able to shift the teeth in a way that allows them to have all the space they need to function optimally.

Gaps Between Teeth

At first, gaps between the teeth may seem cute and quirky. However, that extra space can leave your gums vulnerable to harm and interfere with your bite. To address unwanted gaps, you may be able to use Nu Smile Aligners to gradually bring your teeth closer together.

A small overbite is both natural and normal. However, if your top teeth rest too far in front of your bottom teeth, you may require orthodontic care. Without the help of Nu Smile Aligners or a similar treatment, you may suffer from jaw pain, speech difficulties, uneven wear on your teeth, and a range of other issues.

If your bottom teeth rest in front of your top teeth, you have what is known as an underbite. This can adversely affect your facial aesthetics, as well as your ability to chew and speak easily. In many cases, a course of treatment with Nu Smile Aligners (and additional accessories) can help to correct an underbite.

If some of your bottom teeth rest in front of your top teeth, you have a crossbite. This issue can be the result of genetics, poor habits during childhood, or other factors. In some cases, Nu Smile Aligners can be used to address a crossbite and promote improved speaking, biting, and overall oral health.

Open Bite

An open bite occurs when the front teeth cannot touch one another even if the back teeth are closed. Whether this issue is caused by genetics, poor bone development, or prolonged thumb-sucking as a child, it can lead to problems if it is left unaddressed. Nu Smile Aligners may be able to treat an open bite, allowing you to enjoy improved biting ability and facial aesthetics.

Understanding the Cost of Nu Smile Aligners

Our team firmly believes that paying for dental care should not be stressful, especially when it comes to major services like orthodontia!

Plus, we offer convenient payment options that can make It even easier to afford your care.

Factors that Affect the Cost of Nu Smile Aligners

Other types of clear aligners base their pricing on a range of factors, including the total estimated treatment timeline, the number of aligners needed, and the severity of a patient’s dental misalignment. For some patients, they may end up paying $4,000 or $5,000 (or more) for start-to-finish care.

The Nu Smile System is different. We charge a flat fee of $2,500, which includes all the aligners you need and in-person support from our team of dental experts. (Once you complete your treatment, you will be provided with a retainer for an additional fee.)

Nu Smile Aligners vs. Mail-Order Aligners: Which Costs More?

Mail-order clear aligner systems may seem like a tempting alternative to in-person orthodontic care. After all, such treatments often cost around $2,000. However, it is important that you consider what you are getting for your money.

Nu Smile costs just a bit more than mail-order systems, but the value it delivers is far superior. You get in-person care and a series of locally made aligners that are constructed of premium plastic materials. With expert support every step of the way, you can be confident that you will experience desirable results.

Mail-order systems are less reliable. They might require you to take your own dental impressions. Even a small error while doing so could adversely affect your entire treatment. Correcting such problems can be quite expensive. Some patients who chose mail-order aligners have ended up inadvertently causing long-term damage to their teeth.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Nu Smile Aligners?

Many dental insurance plans do not cover orthodontia for adults. However, some premium plans do include coverage. If that is true of your policy, it might pay for up to 50% of the cost of your Nu Smile treatment, up to the amount of your plan’s lifetime orthodontic maximum. With the help of their benefits, some patients are able to reduce their out-of-pocket costs by $1,000 or more. Our practice is in-network with many insurance plans, and we will be happy to help you take full advantage of your coverage.

Options for Making Nu Smile Aligners Affordable

Beyond insurance, there are a couple of provisions that might make it easier to afford Nu Smile Aligners:

  • Ask us about your options for arranging a no-interest or low-interest payment plan. Most patients are eligible for an arrangement that fits easily into their monthly budget.
  • FSA or HSA funds. You may be able to use your flexible spending account or healthcare savings account to pay for a portion of your treatment.

NuSmile Aligners FAQs

Are There Any Foods I Can’t Eat with NuSmile Aligners?

Although there aren’t any foods you need to completely eliminate from your diet, there are definitely some that you should avoid. That includes crunchy croutons, hard pretzels, and tortilla chips as well as sour treats, gummy candies, and other foods and drinks that are packed with sugar. Instead, we recommend sticking to a well-balanced diet that’s filled with nutrient-dense foods. This will help keep your teeth and gums healthy throughout your teeth-straightening journey and well beyond.

Can I Drink Coffee with NuSmile Aligners?

You can drink coffee during your orthodontic treatment, but you need to take your aligners out first. If you don’t, then they will quickly turn yellow or brown, taking away from their discreet appearance. The best thing to do is drink this caffeinated beverage alongside your breakfast or lunch since your trays will already be out. Then, before you put them back in, brush your teeth and clean your trays. This will help prevent tooth decay from forming and stubborn stains from surfacing.

What Should I Do If I Lose One of My NuSmile Aligners?

If you lose one of your aligners, dedicate some time to thoroughly retracing your steps, starting from the last place you remember having them. If you don’t have any luck, call our Eatontown dental team. Since we print our aligners at a local facility, you won’t have to wait 4+ weeks for a new one – we can easily have a replacement set made if needed.

Why Do I Need to Wear My NuSmile Aligners for 20-22 Hours a Day?

If you’re struggling to meet the 20-22 hour-a-day wear-time goal, you might find yourself wondering how important it really is. The reality is that it’s vital when it comes to staying on track with your treatment plan, which is why it’s so important that you do your best to stick to it each and every day.

Tip: If you’re having trouble, try dedicating a certain amount of time to each meal, like 30 minutes for breakfast, 30 minutes for lunch, 45 minutes for dinner, and 15 minutes for a snack. Then, track your wear time on your stopwatch and make adjustments as needed!

What Happens After I’ve Worn All My NuSmile Aligners?

Have you heard of orthodontic relapse? This is when teeth begin to move out of their perfectly aligned positions following orthodontic treatment, and it happens to upwards of 50% of patients. To prevent it from happening to you, we will provide you with a custom retainer to keep your teeth in place. Depending on your case, we may recommend wearing it around the clock when you first get it or simply wearing it each night when you sleep.
