SureSmile® Clear Aligners, the convenient and discreet teeth straightening option
Straight teeth are one of the hallmarks of a beautiful smile, signaling to others that you are healthy and full of vitality. Do you often find yourself hiding your smile because of crooked teeth, unwanted gaps, or other alignment issues but have been hesitant to undergo traditional orthodontic therapy with metal braces? SureSmile® clear aligners may be just right for you!
At Kentwood Family Dental Care in Kentwood, Michigan, we are proud to offer this convenient and effective teeth straightening option to help our patients achieve the beautiful smiles they deserve. Even better, straight teeth tend to be healthier because they are easier to clean and reduce the risk of misalignment-related problems such as TMJ disorder.
How SureSmile® works
SureSmile® uses a clear aligner system to gradually move your teeth and bite into their optimal position. It can be a great option for patients who have issues such as:
- Crooked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Open bite
We first scan your teeth and bite to create precise three-dimensional impressions of your mouth using advanced computer technology. This information is then used to carefully plan out your series of aligners. Each set of aligners is worn for one to two weeks at a time for at least 22 hours per day. The number of aligner sets needed varies for each patient, but with SureSmile® treatment times that are up to 30 percent shorter than traditional orthodontics, you will be able to enjoy your brand-new smile before you know it. Throughout your SureSmile® treatment period, we will schedule periodic checkups to ensure your smile is progressing as planned.
Benefits of SureSmile®
Traditional braces have metal wires and brackets that detract from your smile, cause discomfort, and require avoiding crunchy and sticky foods. SureSmile® clear aligners avoid all of these issues and have additional advantages:
- The clear aligners are nearly invisible, so no one needs to know you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.
- The plastic aligners are also designed for comfort, with no wires poking your mouth.
- We use SureSmile®’s powerful software to precisely plan your treatment for optimal fit and excellent, long-lasting results.
- Because the aligners are fully removable, you can easily clean your teeth and gums without working around brackets and wires.
- There are no food restrictions – you can continue enjoying all of your favorite foods for the duration of your treatment.
- SureSmile® aligners use advanced technologies to achieve optimal results in the shortest possible time.
