Clear Aligners Q & A

What are SureSmile clear aligners?

If you’ve heard of Invisalign®, then you’re familiar with orthodontic aligners. SureSmile is an alternative to Invisalign that uses clear aligners to straighten your smile and improve your bite with a revolutionary technology that is precise and accurate.

The team at Invisible Braces makes your SureSmile aligners from an impression of your smile, so they fit snugly over your teeth and gradually push them into alignment throughout your treatment. SureSmile gives you a straighter smile that looks better and optimizes your overall oral health.

What conditions do clear aligners correct?

The team at Invisible Braces uses SureSmile to correct many of the same alignment issues that traditional braces can correct, including:

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

SureSmile is also an excellent solution for patients who want to improve their smile by straightening their teeth cosmetically.

What’s the process for getting SureSmile?

The team at Invisible Braces takes a scan of your mouth using high-tech 3D imaging technology. They upload that scan to a computer, where it becomes a virtual model of your smile. From there, a state-of-the-art computer program maps out all of the necessary steps that your teeth need to take to achieve optimal alignment.

This information allows the team to create your custom aligner. You wear each set of your aligners for at least 22 hours every day and move on to the next set every two weeks until you’ve gone through your entire series. You have regular checkups with the team to monitor your progress, but not nearly as many as you would need to have if you were getting braces.

What are the benefits of SureSmile clear aligners?

As a newer and more technologically advanced orthodontic system, SureSmile has several advantages over treatment with traditional metal braces, like:

Comfort

Your aligners are made from smooth, flexible, BPA-free plastic. They sit snugly and comfortably over your teeth and won’t tear up the insides of your cheeks like braces do.

Convenience

SureSmile aligners are removable, so you can take them out whenever you need to eat or clean your teeth. Unlike braces, that means you won’t have to adjust your diet during treatment or invest in special tools to keep your teeth clean. You can also take them out for special occasions, like for photos, an important job interview, or sports.

Discretion

Your clear aligners virtually disappear when you put them on your teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces, nobody will know you’re going through orthodontic treatment unless you tell them.
