Adult Aligners Q & A

What are adult aligners?

Adult aligners are an orthodontic treatment that straighten your smile with an added degree of convenience and comfort. Aligners are especially popular with adults because they’re an aesthetically discreet method for straightening your teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces, your adult aligners are virtually invisible when you’re wearing them.

Invisible Braces offers adult aligners from SureSmile®, one of the most trusted brands in orthodontics. 

What conditions can adult aligners treat?

Adult aligners are effective at treating a wide range of orthodontic concerns, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite

With your SureSmile adult aligners, you’ll have a beautiful and healthy smile in no time.

How do adult aligners work?

Although adult aligners are more discreet and comfortable than traditional metal braces, they work by the same basic principles. Your aligners exert a small but constant force on your teeth, and over time, that force eventually pushes them into an optimal position.

How do I get started with adult aligners?

If you’ve decided that you’re ready to try adult aligners, schedule a consultation with Invisible Braces. During your consultation, your provider takes an impression of your teeth to design a virtual model of your smile. The model is used to create your treatment plan, which is like a map for how your teeth need to shift to properly straighten.

Your provider sends your treatment plan to a dental lab that uses it to fabricate your aligners. SureSmile aligners come in a progressive series, with a different set of aligners for every step that your teeth need to take on their path towards better alignment.

You move on to the next set of aligners in your series every two weeks as your teeth get closer to their desired position. Once you’ve gone through all of your aligners, you’ll have a beautifully straight smile.

How long does it take adult aligners to straighten my smile?

The length of a SureSmile treatment varies depending on the type and severity of your orthodontic condition. Generally speaking, though, SureSmile works up to 40% faster than traditional orthodontics.
