How SureSmile Works
At the beginning of your SureSmile treatment, you’ll receive a number of clear aligners made out of special plastic. Each aligner is made to gradually change the position of your teeth via gentle pressure. After about two weeks of wearing the same aligners, you’ll switch to the next set. This process is repeated until your smile has reached its proper alignment.
Since the aligners are transparent and sit flush against the teeth, most people won’t notice them unless they see you take them out or put them in. And like with any type of clear aligner, you can take SureSmile out for meals, so your diet will not be restricted during your treatment.
Benefits of SureSmile Clear Aligners
Why choose SureSmile clear aligners over other orthodontic options? There are a few important benefits:
- With SureSmile, you can often expect treatment time to be shorter compared to traditional braces and other clear aligner brands.
- With no brackets or wires to worry about, it will be easier to keep your teeth clean.
- You can be confident about your appearance thanks to the discreet aligners.
- SureSmile doesn’t require as many adjustments as other orthodontic treatments.
- Your clear aligners will be custom designed just for you, making them very comfortable to wear.
What Does SureSmile Look Like?
SureSmile aligners are constructed from a thin, transparent plastic that makes them very hard to see when you’re wearing them. So long as you keep your aligners clean and in good condition, they’ll be very hard to see while they’re in your mouth.
Some SureSmile patients may need additional attachments, which can be slightly less subtle. However, it should still be hard for someone to tell you’re having dental work done unless you tell them.
How Long Does SureSmile Take?
While everyone’s timeline will look a little bit different, you can expect SureSmile treatment to take anywhere from 12 to 18 months.
This depends on how severe your misalignment actually is and how well you adhere to our guidelines for treatment. And it’s worth noting that, while 18 months may certainly seem like a long time, it’s still several months shorter than traditional braces.
What if My SureSmile Broke?
While SureSmile aligners are made from a clear, durable plastic, it is possible for them to break. If you notice a small hairline fracture, you may still be able to use your tray without any issue; just be careful when removing them and watch carefully for further damage.
In the case of severe breaks, you should let us know that your aligner is no longer usable. We’ll be able to order you a replacement, and will ask you to wear a previous tray until it comes in. In some circumstances, we could also move you up to your next stage of aligners prematurely.
Can You Eat with SureSmile?
One of the nice things about your SureSmile aligners is that they’re removable. This means that you can skirt many of the dietary restrictions associated with orthodontics, as there’s no risk of what you eat affecting your trays.
The trade-off is that you have to make sure to take off your aligners before you eat. Otherwise, you could warp, damage, or stain them.
