At SmileDirectClub, we’re all about making people smile. That’s why we’ll refund the cost of your $69 impression kit if the New Zealand registered dentist determines our clear aligner treatment isn't suitable for you.
Your custom-made SmileDirectClub clear aligners can be returned within the first 30 days of your Smile Plan (in other words, your treatment plan—from approval and acceptance of your treatment to using your aligners every month) if you’re not happy for any reason, and all payments you’ve made for your aligners will be refunded. It’s that simple, and we’re that confident. Just remember, you’re responsible for any shipping charges when returning your clear aligners and we must receive the clear aligners by the end of the 30-day time period. The 30-day time period begins the day your clear aligner shipment is delivered.
You want a straighter smile, and we want to help you get it. To achieve your desired results, you must closely follow the Smile Plan from your registered New Zealand dentist. This includes:
- Wear your aligners as directed;
- Respond to each 90-day check-in by sending an email with the requested photos.
You must also Register your aligners on your customer account at SmileDirectClub.co.nz.
If at the end of your treatment plan, having followed these guidelines, you haven’t achieved a smile you love, as presented in your Smile Plan, contact us using the details set out in the "contact us" section so the registered New Zealand dentist can re-evaluate your results. If your registered New Zealand dentist agrees that continuing treatment is appropriate, you may be eligible for additional aligners to continue your journey. SmileDirectClub will work with you through this process to reach the best result. Don’t forget: You need to notify us within 30 days of completing your Smile Plan for the warranty to remain valid.
