Check with the Clinical Staff.
For instance, simple cases can sometimes be addressed in office with an Essix retainer. It is essentially the same material as ClearCorrect or Invisalign, but something that can be done in office. So, if you just have one tooth that has protruded, the doctor may have elected to do that. And for $900, that may be the case (lab fees for aligners are significant) as keeping the lab work in-house cuts down overhead significantly and that savings is often pushed over to the patient.
Just a thought. But, you might need to check with the clinical staff and see what was done. If results are not satisfactory or progressing, a chance for the doctor to re-evaluate would be best. It may be that he/she was hoping to keep your treatment costs at a minimum. Hope this helps.
If you are unsatisfied with your progress your dentist should be able to submit a revision at no additional charge.
