SureSmile clear aligners are a great way to straighten your teeth without the need for obvious orthodontic appliances, such as braces.
What are SureSmile Aligners?
SureSmile clear aligners are an orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth without using braces, glue, or wires. They’re essentially clear retainers that are custom-made to fit your teeth, straightening them over time.
As one of the most popular options for clear aligners, SureSmile is a great choice for many orthodontic patients.
How Do SureSmile Aligners Work?
SureSmile uses a series of clear aligners custom-made for your teeth. During your first visit, Dr. Struhs will take a comprehensive digital scan of your teeth. Then, we’ll use SureSmile’s advanced imaging software to create your treatment plan.
SureSmile’s technology is pretty impressive, and is one of the reasons we love using their services! It creates a series of clear aligners you’ll wear to straighten your teeth. These aligners gradually move your teeth, creating a beautiful, straight smile.
How Long Do You Wear SureSmile Aligners?
Your individual treatment plan dictates how long you need to SureSmile for in total, but you could see results in as little as six months to a few years.
You’ll need to wear the aligners for at least 20-22 hours per day. This means you’ll only take them out while you’re eating or brushing your teeth — they need to stay in throughout the day and while you sleep.
Because the SureSmile treatment plan includes a series of multiple aligners, you’ll be switching to the next one every week or two.
What’s the Difference Between SureSmile and Invisalign?
SureSmile and Invisalign are very similar products — they’re both clear aligners that straighten your teeth in a more comfortable way than traditional braces.
The main difference between SureSmile and Invisalign is SureSmile’s advanced technology. They use proprietary software and Digital Lab experts to create the most effective treatment plan possible. Instead of basing your aligners off of a dental mold, they use a digital scanner to map out your teeth, their ideal movements, and final placement for a straight smile!
SureSmile also uses Essix ACE® Plastic, an industry leading material, to create its aligners.
