SureSmile Clear Aligners
Say goodbye to crooked teeth and cramped smiles. Clear aligners are a personalized and highly effective way to straighten teeth. We use the SureSmile system to plan treatments using 3D imaging technology.
The result? Faster treatment times and predictable results.
Benefits of clear aligners versus traditional braces
Clear aligners have gained significant popularity in recent years due to their numerous advantages over traditional aligners. Here are some reasons we like clear aligners as an alternative to traditional braces:
- Virtually invisible: Clear aligners are transparent, making them a more discreet option than traditional braces. This makes them much more appealing for those who don’t want to show off a mouth full of metal.
- Comfort: Clear aligners are custom-made to fit you (and only you), resulting in a more comfortable experience. Traditional braces often have sharp edges or brackets that can cause irritation to the soft tissues of the mouth.
- Removability: One of the key advantages of clear aligners is that they are removable. You can easily take them out when eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. This means you can enjoy your favorite foods without any restrictions and maintain your regular oral hygiene routine, unlike with traditional braces, which are fixed and require extra care during oral hygiene practices.
- Predictability: Our SureSmile clear aligners are designed using advanced 3D imaging technology that allows for precise planning and prediction of the treatment outcome. The computer-generated treatment plan shows the incremental movement of your teeth, giving you a clear idea of how your smile will improve over time. This level of predictability is often not possible with traditional braces.
Why we use SureSmile
An advanced orthodontic system, SureSmile uses 3D imaging technology to create precise treatment plans that straighten teeth. SureSmile works by allowing us to take digital impressions of your teeth, which are then used to create a 3D image.
We like SureSmile because the system provides visual guidelines and predicts how teeth should move throughout the course of your treatment. This planning, along with the effectiveness of the aligners, means patients benefit from shorter treatment times and improved results.
How SureSmile works
Treatment with SureSmilebegins with a 3D scan of your mouth. A set of plastic molds are then created to fit your teeth perfectly. These molds are scanned into the computer to create a 3D model of your teeth. Once your treatment plan is complete, the robotic system creates each aligner based on the model created by your dentist.
Over the course of your treatment, you’ll receive new aligners every few weeks. Since each aligner is custom-made for your mouth, you can expect to have fewer office visits during your time wearing your aligners. You’ll also be more likely to complete your treatment on time since they’re so efficient at moving your teeth into place.
Is SureSmile right for me?
During your consultation with the dentist, they’ll evaluate your needs and determine whether SureSmile is right for you. Some of the considerations include the following:
- Your treatment goals (a straighter smile or cosmetic changes)
- How quickly do you need results
- Your lifestyle (active and busy versus more sedate)
- Your bite pattern
- The kind of treatment you’ve received in the past
- Cost considerations
Clear aligners may not be suitable for all orthodontic cases. Some complex cases may still require traditional braces or other orthodontic treatments. The best way to know for sure if clear aligners are right for you is to schedule an appointment. Our team will evaluate your situation and provide a comprehensive treatment plan to works for you.
