Designs Frequently Asked Questions
We’ve compiled a list of answers to the most common questions we get from our customers. Don’t see what you are looking for? Fill out the contact form on our contact page and we will get back to you with the answers you are looking for.
+ What makes you different from every other design center?
The quality speaks for itself but we take pride in our consistency and outstanding client support. Many design centers are either too big to take the same amount of time and care for you or too small to keep up with the updated new products each year. Any questions, feedback or even kind words are always heard and taken care of by our support team and designers. You will feel like we are part of your team rather than an outsourced design center.
+ What is the turnaround time for designs?
- 2-5 hours for rush cases*
- 24 hours (but you usually have them back within 12 hours) for regular cases*
*turnaround times for all products except Aligners. Contact us for more info.
+ What is the calibration period?
The calibration period is the first week you start using the design portal for us to ensure that all your preferences are taken into account. Our team will check-in with you and collect any constructive feedback you have such as occlusion settings, copings and more! You can also speak directly with the design center’s lead designers for more technical feedback.
+ How much does it cost?
