HOW SURESMILE Works
SureSmile combines the tried-and-true technology of traditional orthodontics with smooth plastic aligners that use low force for gentle movements. These advanced clear aligners can correct crooked, crowded, and gapped teeth. Patients are also able to continue eating their favorite foods and participating in their favorite activities, as SureSmile aligners are completely removable.
During your treatment, we’ll bring you in for a check-up every four to six weeks to make sure everything is going smoothly. After your treatment is complete, we’ll fit you with a custom retainer to ensure your teeth stay in these new, perfect positions.
BENEFITS OF SURESMILE®
- SureSmile clear aligners are practically invisible on the teeth.
- Many patients find aligners to be more comfortable than traditional braces.
- The average treatment time is between six and eighteen months.
- There are fewer orthodontic visits required compared to metal braces.
ARE SURESMILE ALIGNERS MORE PAINFUL THAN REGULAR BRACES?
You might think that an orthodontic plan that is shorter than other options means that the teeth are corralled into place in a more forceful and painful manner, but this is not the case. In fact, certain metal braces use higher force when straightening teeth, despite the longer average treatment time. When clear aligners gently move the teeth using low force, they can be moved both more efficiently and with less pain (although you can expect to feel some pain or discomfort with your aligners, especially when you start wearing new ones.)
HOW DO I CARE FOR SURESMILE CLEAR ALIGNERS?
Before we give you your first set of SureSmile aligners and send you on your way, we will go over all of the best practices for taking care of clear aligners, and we can also answer any questions you may have. However, there are a few golden rules when it comes to taking care of clear braces, which are as follows:
- Rinse your aligner in cold water after you remove it
- Brush your teeth before putting your aligner in
- Clean your aligner and its case frequently and thoroughly
- Don’t eat or drink anything while wearing an aligner
- Wear your aligner as often as possible to keep your treatment on track
ARE SURESMILE CLEAR ALIGNERS COVERED BY INSURANCE?
Since orthodontic treatments are mostly for cosmetic purposes, many insurance plans do not completely cover the cost of SureSmile, but you may be able to get partial coverage through your provider. We also accept FSAs and HSAs and third-party payment plans through CareCredit® and LendingClub, which allow patients to begin receiving treatments right away while paying for them over the course of several months or years.
