Corey Goldman:Investors somewhere will definitely have something to smile about this morning. At least that was they are focusing on SmileDirect Club, which is kicking off trading today on the Nasdaq at $23 a share that is slightly above the 19 to 22 share range the company had been expecting and had been telling investors that range in terms of where would start. That should net the company at least somewhere around $1.4 8 billion. And that would be in addition to the $3.2 billion that they raised in private funding about a year ago. So something for someone to smile about. Perhaps CEO David Katzman and others that are involved in the company, which has really taken off, simply because they've made it really easy to get your teeth straight. You go to a CVS, you go to a Walgreen's and you've got a kit or you reach out to them and they mail you something and you mail it back in. So, something to smile about. We'll see. I'm Corey Goldman for TheStreet.com in Toronto.

Now here's an initial public offering that may or may not make investors smile.

Teeth-straightening provider SmileDirectClub late Wednesday announced that its class A shares were priced at $23 a share, slightly above the $19- to $22-a-share range it had said it would be targeting. 

At that price, the deal will raise $1.35 billion for the Nashville-based company. Last October, SmileDirectClub was valued at $3.2 billion in a private fundraising round led by Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, Kleiner Perkins and Spark Capital.

SmileDirectClub said the shares will begin trading Thursday on the Nasdaq Stock Market under the symbol (SDC) .

The company operates 300 centers, including partnerships with drugstore chains CVS (CVS - Get Report) and Walgreens (WAL - Get Report) , or customers can order doctor-prescribed teeth-alignment kits by mail.
