Why you shouldn’t buy your aligners from an online service.

Are you looking for a way to improve your smile? If you’ve searched online, you know that plenty of vendors want to provide you with solutions to straighten your teeth or cover imperfections.

Your online vendor won’t be there to see if your veneers are the right shade of white, or if they are the right size for your smile.

Your dentist also will check your veneers or aligners regularly to be sure that they are producing the effect you seek, and not causing new problems for you.
