SureSmile Invisible Teeth Aligners

Get Straight Teeth with SureSmile® Clear Aligners

If you have been looking to straighten your teeth without the need for traditional braces, we have a potential solution for you: SureSmile clear aligners. This incredible teeth straightening technology has made it so adults can straighten their teeth without having to worry about brackets or wires—or conjuring up memories of being a teenager.

What are the Benefits of SureSmile Clear Braces?

SureSmile clear braces have a number of fantastic benefits including:

  • Speed – With SureSmile invisible aligners, you can have straight teeth faster! On average, in as little time as six months to one year, clear aligners help teeth become straighter and smiles more beautiful. Compared to the average of two years for traditional braces, SureSmile aligner treatment is quick indeed!
  • Appearance – Unlike traditional braces of the past, these clear aligners use no wires or brackets. Instead, SureSmile aligner trays are made of a nearly invisible clear plastic. This makes it so you can straighten your teeth without those around you noticing!
  • Hygiene – SureSmile aligners use removable aligner trays that gradually help crooked teeth become straight teeth over time. These aligner trays, unlike traditional braces, are removable, which means that you can continue to maintain the same standard of hygiene care that you had before receiving your braces treatment.
  • Convenience – Another added advantage of SureSmile aligners being removable is that you can continue to eat the foods that you enjoy! With SureSmile aligner treatment, you can simply take out your aligner trays, eat the foods you love, and put the trays back in to continue straightening your teeth.

SureSmile vs. Invisalign Clear Braces

Many patients ask us what the differences between Invisalign and SureSmile are. Here is how the two orthodontic treatments stack up against one another:

  • Daily Wear Time – Both Invisalign and SureSmile are recommended to be worn 20-22 hours a day for maximum effectiveness.
  • Visibility – Both Invisalign and SureSmile are virtually invisible, making them the perfect choice for orthodontic patients looking to be discreet. SureSmile uses a frosted plastic design, while Invisalign opts for matte.
  • Treatment Duration – SureSmile has the advantage over Invisalign when it comes to the speed of treatment. Invisalign treatment takes 12 to 18 months on average, although five years may be necessary. SureSmile, on the other hand, averages 6 to 18 months, with a 3 year maximum treatment time.
  • Price – For the budget conscious, SureSmile is the superior choice without sacrificing on quality. SureSmile cases tend to range between $2000 and $6000 whereas Invisalign can range between $3000 and $8000.
Each time I visit, it is always a positive experience. The dentists are great, as well as the staffs. Getting braces as an adult is no fun, but the process has been so smooth with them. I will recommend them to anyone!Norlen I, Patient

Am I a Candidate for SureSmile Clear Braces?

If you suffer from one of these common bite problems you may be a good candidate for SureSmile:

Overlap of teeth caused by insufficient space within the dental arch (a.k.a. arch length discrepancy)
Potential Problem(s):
Hard to clean teeth increases the risk of periodontal disease, tooth and/or bone loss.

Excess space between teeth as a result of missing teeth, undersized teeth, oversized jaws or a combination of these conditions (a.k.a. arch length excess)
Potential Problem(s):
Food trapped in spaces and not easily removed with brushing increases risk for gum soreness and periodontal disease.

Space between upper central incisors that may occur for a variety of reasons including tongue pressure against teeth rather than the roof of the mouth.
Potential Problem(s):
Same potential problems as spacing. Any spacing, including diastemas, may also be a symptom of gum disease because of the inflammation.

A tooth or gorups of teeth in the upper arch that site inside of the lower arch. Typically, teeth in the upper arch site outside of the teeth in the lower jaw.
Potential Problem(s):
When teeth collide in an unprotected relationship, this increases the likelihood of occlusal trauma that can lead to premature wear, periodontal disease, bone and tooth loss.

Deep Bite
Upper anterior teeth vertically overlap the lower anterior teeth an excessive amount.
Potential Problem(s):
Deep bites may put joint and facial muscles in an unnatural position causing jaw soreness and stressed joints. Grinding and clenching can cause gum recession that can lead to periodontal disease. Over erupted lower teeth have increased risk for wear and chipping.

Edge-to-Edge Bite
Upper anterior teeth make incisal contact with lower incisors and there is no overjet or overbite.
Potential Problem(s):
Tooth positions increase the risk of abnormal wear of anterior teeth. When the maxillary anterior teeth collide on the mandibular in an unprotected relationship, this increases the likelihood of occlusal trauma that can lead to periodontal disease, bone and tooth loss.

Open Bite
Upper and lower teeth don’t touch when the mouth is fully closed, showing an opening between the upper and lower teeth. Can occur in the anterior or in the posterior of the mouth, but anterior open bites are more common.
Potential Problem(s):
Untreated anterior open bite patients often experience pain/discomfort with chewing, biting and swallowing. Excessive pressure on posterior teeth increases risk of premature wear, gum recessions, loose teeth and bone loss.

The lower anterior teeth or jaw sit ahead of the upper anterior teeth or jaw. Also known as a Class III malocclusion.
Potential Problem(s):
When posterior teeth do not fit as they should (Class II/III malocclusions), the imbalance in the distribution of forces may increase the likelihood of bruxism, TMD, premature wear, gum recession, loose teeth and bone loss.

Frequently Asked Questions About SureSmile Clear Aligners

How do I clean my clear aligners?
First, put the provided Retainer Brite® Dental Appliance Cleaner Tablets into a cup of warm water. Next, drop in and soak your clear aligners for 15 minutes to break down buildup and bacteria. After a thorough rinse under water, your aligners are now ready to be placed back into your mouth.
How do clear aligners work?
SureSmile straightens your teeth by applying light pressure using a series of aligners to gradually shift your teeth into the ideal position.
What are orthodontic attachments?
Attachments are small tooth colored material that are temporarily bonded to the teeth. They help aligners grip the teeth and guide them into the desired position.
