Direct-to-consumer clear aligners made to straighten your teeth with no visits to the dentist have become increasing popular. However, there are still several benefits to dentist-directed aligner treatments.
Brooklyn Smile– Clear Aligners with Your Expectations in Mind
At Brooklyn Smile, determining if you are qualified candidate for clear aligners and meeting your expectations drives our approach to care.
Aligner technology is important but most important is delivering results beyond your expectations. Our team has over 25 years’ experience with clear aligner treatment, and we are an Invisalign® 100 Club practice, as well as a leading provider of CandidPro® clear aligners. We utilize both because the appropriate aligner system depends on your unique situation and the overall expectations you have for your smile.
At Brooklyn Smile, there are three critical steps to providing patients with a smile of a lifetime.
Step 1- Comprehensive Exam
Determining your overall oral health is a critical first step for all patients. Tooth movement is unique to each patient and conducting full exam with X-rays and examining your history allows the team to determine if aligners are right for you.
Step 2- Treatment plan
If it makes sense to move forward, our team will take impressions of your mouth as well as have a detailed discussion to understand your needs. A customized treatment plan is then created to meet your overall smile objectives. At this point, the Brooklyn Smile team will decide which aligner system —Invisalign or CandidPro is best for meeting your expectations.
Step 3- Ongoing Monitoring
A critical success factor for clear aligner treatment is the ongoing monitoring of tooth movement as each patient progresses at a different rate. At Brooklyn Smile we understand the time challenges associated with office visits. As a result, we offer multiple ways to monitor your care over the course of treatment. It could be via our unique at home monitoring system or by virtual consultations.

Still Have questions?
How does the virtual consultation work?
Many people are unsure if aligners are right for them but do not want to take the time to visit the dentist. The Brooklyn Smile virtual consultation allows you to talk with Dr. Gary Herskovits directly to determine if aligners are right for you. You will still need to come into the office for the exam, X-rays and impressions.
How long will my treatment take?
Every case is custom designed and will vary by individual. Most cases range from six to 24 months, and the average time is less than 12 months.
How much do they cost?
Cases range in prices based on the severity of your situation. They range from $2,500-$4,500.
How does financing work?
Brooklyn Smile has many financing options to choose from. During your first visit or after the virtual consultation, you can apply for the one that most meets your requirements.
How do I know if aligners are right for me?
The best way to determine if aligners are right for you is a personal consultation with Dr. Herskovits. The free consultation allows the Brooklyn Smile team to understand your expectations and provide you with insights into what is possible. A preliminary virtual consultation is a great way to understand if aligners are right for you.
