Full Refund Policy.
NewSmile®'s foundational principle is the happiness of our customers. If you receive your preview and are unsatisfied with the results we can give you, we will issue a refund less penalties and fees. A preview is a graphical representation of before and after images of the progress you will receive by using NewSmile® Aligners. Previews are delivered to you electronically, and viewed on your own device three weeks after we perform a scan or receive your kit back.
Impression Kits and scans are ineligible for a refund due to hygienic reasons. All other non-custom NewSmile products are eligible for a return thirty (30) days from the date of purchase. To be eligible for a return and a refund, the non-custom made product must be unopened, unused and in the same condition that you received it. If you request a refund or our licensed dental team determines that our process is not a good fit, a refund case will be opened by NewSmile with specific steps outlined.
Once you’ve received and approved the Treatment Preview for your NewSmile® Aligners, refunds are only allowed for manufacturing defects. A gap on the bottom of the aligner is not indicative of an incorrectly manufactured aligner, and aligners may need to be buffed and trimmed at home. Each aligner is custom made, and aligners in production and/or manufactured aligners are ineligible for a return or refund.In the unlikely scenario that you are unhappy with the results after completing your treatment, we are happy to work with you to determine what the issue may be, and will help you achieve the results of your original Treatment Preview.
All refunds will require a case to be opened by the refund team and may take up to 90 days for review. If the refund case is approved, it will take 14 business days to issue after case conclusion by the Refund Team, and will be returned to the customer via the customer's original purchasing method only. Banks will typically return funds within 3 business days. Refunds are calculated as the purchase price less your Impression Kit and any costs and/or penalties. Costs and penalties are any expenses incurred by NewSmile® including any labour, materials, administration, etc. The fees are (but no limited to): $200 (for the first Impression Kit, shipping & handling, and administration), $50 for any replacement Impression Kits, and $100 per Treatment Preview/Modified Treatment Preview produced by the licensed dental team. Penalties start at $100 and will be determined on the amount of time that has elapsed since purchase.
In the unlikely scenario that you are unhappy with the results after your treatment, and you have complied with all the Aligner wear and care instructions, we will work with you to determine the cause. Refinement aligners that are the result of not following your Treatment Plan completely, the cost will be determined when impressions are received by NewSmile®'s dental team, and will typically cost $499. You understand that NewSmile® cannot guarantee any specific results or outcomes and a 90% attainment to your treatment preview is considered a treatment success. The attainment will be determined by our licensed dental team.
For refunds on Monthly Payment Plans past 30 days, there is a 2.95% charge on the balance due to processing fees with our financing vendor. For PayPal purchases, refunds issued minus any PayPal processing fees as per PayPal's refund policy plus applicable administration fees.
Replacement Impression Kit's provided for Fast Track and Monthly Payment plan purchases are $50. In the case that a refund is given before a Treatment Preview is provided, there will be a charge for the Impression Kits, any replacement Impression Kits provided, plus penalties and fees.
You understand that the entire process may take up to 6 months from depending on when NewSmile® Canada receives your impressions/scan back and pictures uploaded. No refunds will be allowed for purchases past 5 months.
