SureSmile Clear Aligners

What Are SureSmile Clear Aligners?

SureSmile Clear Aligners is an orthodontic treatment that gradually straightens teeth with custom-fit, removable clear aligners. You will first have an initial consultation to determine if SureSmile Clear Aligners are the right choice for you. Then, your teeth will be digitally scanned and sent to a partnering SureSmile Lab, where your personalized treatment plan will be created.

This plan will include a series of clear plastic aligners that will gradually move your teeth into their permanent location. You will move on to the next aligner, typically every two weeks. However, this may vary on a case-by-case basis. When you begin your treatment, you will be given exact directions on how to use and when to change aligners.

Why Are SureSmile Clear Aligners Better Than Other Straightening Methods?

SureSmile Clear Aligners are designed with patient comfort in mind. They are made of a soft plastic material that is much gentler on the cheeks and gums than other types of aligners or metal braces. SureSmile Clear Aligners are also a discreet option for straightening teeth, unlike traditional metal braces. They also require fewer office visits, which makes them a more convenient choice for people with busy lifestyles.

How Long Is The Process?

Straightening teeth requires patience, as it takes time to see the desired results. The duration of treatment varies depending on the amount of adjustment required. SureSmile Clear Aligners are an effective solution that usually starts showing results within 3 to 6 months, and complete results are typically achieved within two years for most patients.

Are The Results Permanent?

Yes, definitely! The results achieved by SureSmile Clear Aligners are permanent and provide a long-lasting solution for straightening teeth. By properly caring for the aligners and wearing the SureSmile retainer after achieving results, you can ensure success and maintain the desired look for a long time.

Frequently Asked Questions

The cost of SureSmile aligners may vary depending on the complexity of each individual case. Typically, the cost of SureSmile treatment can range from $3,500 to $6,000, which is comparable to the cost of traditional braces and other clear aligner brands such as Invisalign.

It’s worth noting that many dental insurance plans cover orthodontic treatments, including clear aligners like SureSmile. It is best to check with your insurance provider to determine the extent of your coverage.

It is common for people to feel slight discomfort for a few days when they start a new stage of SureSmile treatment. This feeling is usually described as pressure and a sign that the treatment is working and your teeth are gradually moving to their final destination. This discomfort usually subsides a couple of days after you insert the new aligner in the series.

Orthodontic treatments, including aligners, may cause temporary speech impediments for some individuals. One may experience a slight lisp for a day or two. However, as the tongue becomes accustomed to the presence of aligners in the mouth, any speech impediment caused by the aligners should diminish.

Aligners should be worn for the majority of the day, with the exception of when you are eating, brushing your teeth, or flossing.

No, gum should not be chewed while wearing aligners, as it will stick to them and possibly cause damage. We recommend removing your aligners for all meals and snacks.

You don’t have to limit your food choices while undergoing treatment with aligners. Unlike traditional wires and brackets, you can eat whatever you want by removing the aligners to eat and drink. However, it is important to maintain proper hygiene by brushing your teeth after each meal before re-inserting the aligners.

The optimal way to clean your aligners is to brush and rinse them using lukewarm water. Since aligners are to be removed when eating and drinking, brushing and rinsing should be a relatively simple process.

SureSmile’s aligners are crafted using Essix ACE Plastic, which is a top-quality dental plastic chosen for its exceptional properties in aligner fabrication. This patented plastic is exclusive to SureSmile Clear Aligners, but it is similar in nature to the material employed for creating whitening trays. This material is known for its clarity and durability and can hold its shape for up to 14 days.

It’s important to remember that the type of retainer or positioner a patient might need after treatment can vary depending on the outcome. Some patients may require a traditional retainer or positioner, while others may benefit from a clear plastic retainer similar to the ones produced by SureSmile. It’s always best to consult with the doctor and discuss the available options since every patient is different, and outcomes can vary.

Great question. The benefits are very similar, but SureSmile Clear Aligners and Invisalign are made of different materials. Also, SureSmile typically costs less. Both products achieve desired results quicker than traditional braces, with 20 – 22 hours of daily wear.
