I'm Embarrassed about my Crooked Teeth

Straighter teeth can bring a range of benefits, but are they worth the hassle of braces? Though braces are the preferred method of teeth straightening for some people, less invasive clear aligners has become increasingly popular and for good reason. The clear aligners worn over your teeth can enhance your physical and emotional wellbeing without causing significant inconveniences as they straighten.

Our specialists at Invisible Braces in Houston, TX, provides exceptional clear aligner treatments, including SureSmile treatments, allowing you to achieve a beautifully straight smile and improved oral health. Read on to learn more about these benefits.

Improved dental health

Straighter teeth don’t only boost your physical appearance by creating a smile you can feel more confident about. Improved alignment can also significantly improve your dental health by making flossing and brushing effectively a lot easier. And because you take SureSmile aligners out beforehand, you won’t have to worry about foot particles and bacteria getting trapped the way they can with conventional braces, lowering your risk of plaque buildup and cavities. 

Overlapping teeth, which SureSmile can correct, can also pave the way for plaque buildup and decay. By straightening and taking care of your teeth, you’ll end up with a lower risk for gum disease and other serious health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease.

Eating your favorite foods

One challenge of having braces is the limitations of certain foods, including bagels, popcorn, and corn on the cob. During your SureSmile treatment, you’ll remove your devices before eating. This means that all foods, including chewy, crunchy, and sticky foods and foods you need to bite into are on the table. 

Once your teeth are straighter thanks to the SureSmile system, you may also have an easier time eating your favorite foods. This is because crowded and crooked teeth often reduce the effective chewing surfaces of your teeth, which can bring undue strain on your jaw and related discomfort and pain. 

Smiling with confidence along the way

The correcting trays in your SureSmile system are virtually invisible. This means that you can talk and smile as usual, without worrying that someone will notice or become distracted by the metal of braces. 

Because SureSmile gradually straightens your teeth, you won’t have to wait until your treatment is completely finished to see and sport the aesthetic benefits. And because research shows that smiling can boost your mood, you may end up feeling brighter as you feel less inclined to hide your pearly whites.

Faster results, compared to braces

Depending on the specifics of your teeth before you start your clear aligner treatment, you can expect to wear your aligners for 12-18 months. And you get the bonus of a couple of hours off daily, for eating, brushing, and flossing. Braces, on the other hand, stay put 24/7 for 18 months to three years. This means that with SureSmile, you’ll have straighter teeth a lot faster. 

A simple start

Getting started with the SureSmile system is a pretty simple and painless process. Your dentist will take 3D digital scans, which means you won’t have to have your mouth full of a gummy substance for the traditional molds that many people find uncomfortable. Although your aligners will feel quite tight at the beginning, you’ll likely adjust quickly. If you feel marked discomfort, you can take short breaks or request that your dentist adjust the edges of the trays if they’re bothering your gums.
