What’s SureSmile?

SureSmile is a system of clear plastic aligners that are designed to straighten teeth and improve the look of your smile. It’s not uncommon for many patients to forgo orthodontic treatment simply because they don’t want metal brackets and wire braces. With SureSmile, no one will even know you’re wearing braces because of their invisible nature. SureSmile is typically quicker and easier to wear, and it’s ideal for individuals of all ages.

Why might you need SureSmile treatment?

The reason you might need SurSmile treatment is because your teeth are crowded, crooked or you have a problem with malocclusion. Unfortunately, a crowded smile is more than an aesthetic problem. If your teeth are severely crooked or crowded, it can make it difficult to brush and floss them properly. This is why we recommend orthodontic treatment using the SureSmile clear aligner therapy.

Who is the right candidate for SureSmile?

SureSmile trays need to be worn for most of the day and night, typically about 22 hours a day. They can be removed when eating or brushing your teeth, and this is why they’re often recommended for teens who are able to commit to treatment. Adults will find SureSmile to be beneficial because they won’t need to worry about a mouth full of brackets and wires. You will need to come in for new trays every few weeks.

What happens during SureSmile treatment?

The SureSmile process begins with an exam and consultation that is conducted in our office. We take impressions of your teeth and then use these to make the actual trays that you’ll wear. We provide you with careful instructions on how to replace and remove your trays as you wear them at home and on-the-go. You will come in every few weeks so that we can monitor changes to your smile and to have new trays for you to wear. SureSmile treatment can take anywhere from just a couple of months to a few years to complete.
