  • People with mild to moderate alignment imperfections


Candid had overall positive reviews primarily for the cost and the fact that they only work with licensed orthodontists. The ease and user experience were also commended, as it was frequently mentioned how Candid has modernized the experience with design. 

It was emphasized that they will turn away those with too severe of imperfections, and this is only for those with mild to moderate imperfections. You are able to see if you are eligible via their studio or a $95 kit you send in. 

There were not very many unanimous cons, two mentioned that you have to wear it all day, but this is the case with many other aligners. Two mentioned frustrations with the kit but for different reasons – charging for it vs. the photo experience. 

Overall, Candid was recommended for those looking for a more affordable option and with moderate imperfections.
