Mouthguards, whether for sports or for nighttime teeth grinding, are often an essential part of good oral health. While both varieties offer over the counter or boil and bite options, custom-fit mouthguards offer the best dental protection. Unfortunately, getting your mouthguard through your dentist can be time-consuming and costly. The good news is SportingSmiles offers the same quality mouthguards you can buy online at a fraction of the cost. Let us show you how we can make a big difference!
#1 We Provide the Same Quality Mouthguards for Less
Cost is often a deterrent for many when it comes to custom-fit mouthguards, whether for sport or night grinding. A custom-fit mouthguard from a dentist can range in cost from $300-$1,100, leaving many people to turn to stock or boil and bite guards. Unfortunately, these guards tend to fit poorly and do not provide the same level of protection. But cost shouldn’t keep you from the protection you need!
Get the same high-quality mouthguards without the high costs your dentist charges. Visit SportingSmiles today and get the protection you need for a fraction of the cost.
The good news is you can get the same high-quality, custom-fit guard you would get from your dentist at a fraction of the cost from SportingSmiles. Our custom-fit teeth grinding guards range in price from $75-$95 while our athletic mouthguards range from $65-$90. You can buy your mouthguard online and you never even have to leave your home.
#2 Your Dentist Doesn’t Even Make Your Guard
The truth is, chances are your dentist doesn’t really make your mouthguard. While they will make the impressions, your dentist sends that impression to a dental laboratory, similar to our SportingSmiles laboratory, to make your mouthguard. And, in all honesty, most of these labs that your dentist sends your mold to don’t even specialize in mouthguards. Many also make more costly dental products such as dentures or crowns. At SportingSmiles, we specialize in mouthguards and retainers, so our focus is on creating top-quality mouthguard appliances.
#3 You Can Make Your Dental Impression in the Comfort of Your Own Home
As mentioned above, when you get a mouthguard from your dentist, they make the mold of your teeth that is sent out and used to make your mouthguard. It can take time to get an appointment and if the mold isn’t made correctly, you can pay to have it done again or you can live with a very expensive mouthguard that doesn’t fit correctly.
With SportingSmiles, you can make your dental impression yourself, in the comfort of your own home. Following easy to follow directions, our patented self-impression kit allows you to make your own mold. And you don’t have to worry about making mistakes. If you make a mistake or your impression doesn’t come out correctly, simply give us a call and we will send out replacement putty to reuse with the enclosed tray. If we receive your impression and our technicians determine it is a bad impression, we will send out a replacement kit for an additional $15 charge.
Even though dentists recommend mouthguards for sports and prescribe them for bruxism, or nighttime teeth grinding, not all dental insurance plans cover them. This means, for most people, the cost of these appliances comes from out of pocket. In this case, the less expensive cost of SportingSmiles guards makes a big difference.
And, if you have a flexible spending account (FSA) or health savings account (HSA), you can use it at SportingSmiles similar to a regular credit card.
#5 Buy Your Mouthguard Online with Our Satisfaction Guarantee
When you go to your dentist for a mouthguard, chances are your dentist doesn’t provide a satisfaction guarantee. You will receive your guard and they will send you on your way. If it doesn’t fit right, chances are you will be charged for another mold and guard.
At SportingSmiles, we offer a 30-day 100% Satisfaction Guarantee! As we mentioned above, if you have problems with making your impression, we will address that. But, if you receive your guard and it just doesn’t seem to fit right, we will evaluate your original impression and either create a new guard from that impression or send you a kit to make a new one.
In addition, we keep your impression for one year. Should you lose your mouthguard, we already have your impression on file, reducing the cost of a replacement.
