Invisalign Vs. Smile Direct Club

Here at Sunshine Orthodontics we are dedicated to providing the best orthodontic treatment options for our patients.  We offer Invisalign and braces throughout the Rhinebeck, Kingston, Wappingers Falls, and surrounding Dutchess County and Ulster County areas.

Dr. Mansour is a highly trained professional and wants to keep you knowledgable and aware of all available options to make sure you receive the care that best fits your personal needs.

How Does Smile Direct Club Work?

Smile Direct Club is an at home service that allows you to receive orthodontic treatment without ever having to physically visit an orthodontist. Upon sign up, customers visit a SmileShop where a 3D image is captured, or if there is no such facility nearby, at-home impression kits are sent to you. After receiving your impressions back, a dental professional with Smile Direct Club will review and assess your treatment plan. On average, treatment plans last around 6 months.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign and Invisalign Teen are clear aligners engineered to make the orthodontic process easier and more enjoyable, much like the ones provided by Smile Direct Club. The difference with Invisalign is that the process is overseen and handled by a certified orthodontist that you know and trust. This ensures that the process is done smoothly and correctly. Upon follow up visits, you will receive new sets of aligners that will gradually move teeth to the desired position.

Invisalign Vs. Smile Direct Club

Each treatment option offers its own set of benefits that can appeal to different personal preferences. The Smile Direct Club results can be just as effective as Invisalign results. The Smile Direct Club cost and Invisalign cost can also be comparable. However, Smile Direct Club does have some differences that may pose as an inconvenience for certain patients.

Disadvantages of Smile Direct Club:

  • trying to find a SmileShop near you
  • dealing with messy molds at home
  • waiting on mail back and forth
  • replacing dentist visits with post office visits
  • anonymous professionals handling treatment
  • additional equipment costs

Braces Cost Vs. Invisalign Cost

The average cost of Invisalign can be comparable to the average cost of braces in some cases depending on certain individual factors such as treatment needs, length, and location. Although Invisalign can offer advantages that some patients would consider priceless.


We offer a selection of orthodontic treatment options between traditional braces and ceramic braces.  Traditional braces are made of high grade stainless steel and our ceramic braces are made of clear materials to be less visible and blend in with your natural teeth.


Invisalign has become a very popular choice among many of our patients. These clear aligners offer the benefits of braces while remaining virtually invisible.  They are also removable, allowing you to continue enjoying your favorite foods and activities.

is an expert in Invisalign in the 12572 area. The team at Sunshine Orthodontics understand that not everyone wants traditional, metal braces and we offer Invisalign as an option in braces for working adults and teens, alike.

Why Invisalign in the 125772 Area?

There are many benefits to Invisalign that are not offered by traditional or ceramic braces. They include:

·        Removable – Invisalign trays are removable. This makes maintaining dental hygiene and eating much easier.

·        Nearly Invisible – the Invisalign trays are clear, which makes them nearly invisible.

·        Require Fewer Orthodontic Visits – at each visit to Sunshine Orthodontics, you will be given a few sets of aligners. Each pair is worn for two weeks, then replaced by the next set in the progression. Because you will have the sets of aligners at home with you, you will not require as many visits for adjustments.

Invisalign is not for everyone. The clear aligners are not as strong as traditional braces, so they are not appropriate to fix major dental conditions.

Invisalign in the Hudson Valley NY


Dr. Ahmed Mansour of Sunshine Orthodontics is an expert provider of Invisalign in the Hudson Valley NY. Invisalign is a new alternative to traditional, metal braces. Dr. Mansour (an Elite Invisalign Provider), and his highly trained staff of orthodontic professionals understand that Invisalign provides a more discreet treatment option for teens and adults, alike!

With this system, custom-made clear aligner trays are fabricated from impressions of the teeth.  Patients are then able to take the aligners home with special instructions that must be followed.  Each set of aligner trays is used for two weeks before moving on to the next set. The trays help to gradually shift teeth into their prescribed position.

Why Invisalign? 

Invisalign offers multiple benefits over traditional braces, including:
  • Discretion – because the trays are clear, they are nearly invisible.
  • Removable – because the trays can be removed, it allows for better dental hygeine during treatment. The removable aligners also mean that the patient does not need to adhere to typical food restrictions.
  • Shorter treatment time – Invisalign treatment usually lasts between 9 and 15 months.
