A crooked smile can be a major hit to your self-esteem. But crooked teeth can cause far more problems than that. Misaligned teeth can affect your bite, your digestion, and even your speech. That's why Family Smiles Dentistry offers SureSmile clear aligners. These acrylic, custom-designed trays use gentle pressure to move your teeth into place without the use of metal braces. You will get a straight, beautiful smile in a matter of months. You'll see the difference in your smile and your overall health!
Whether your teeth are slightly crooked or you have crooked teeth and an overbite, SureSmile can straighten and improve your smile.
A misaligned bite can make it harder to bite and chew your food. SureSmile realigns your bite, making eating much easier.
Your speech is dependent on where your tongue hits your teeth. Misaligned teeth could cause speech problems. SureSmile can fix this.
SureSmile is a more affordable option than some braces and clear aligner systems. You'll get great results at less cost than other clear aligners.
The SureSmile system uses digital 3D scanners to create a detailed image of your teeth, then designs your clear aligners to fit perfectly.
With SureSmile clear aligners, you'll see them working as your treatment progresses. You'll love the results when the last clear aligners come off!
Coverage of SureSmile clear aligners treatment varies depending on the insurance. Most plans will cover treatment from a licensed dentist (which we are!), but they don't cover the entire cost. We have financial options to cover the rest!
Unlike braces, which are bonded to your teeth, SureSmile aligners are removable. That means no food restrictions and no worries about brushing and flossing properly. SureSmile also can correct your smile in less time than traditional braces.
You may experience some discomfort when you first start your treatment and the teeth begin moving. It should disappear after a few days, but it wouldn't hurt to stick to soft foods for a couple of days. You may experience discomfort for a day or two when you change aligners, but you'll get used to them quickly. Once that happens, you probably won't even remember they're there!
Simply remove your clear aligners and clean them with tablets made for clear aligners, or use diluted baking soda or vinegar. You can even use diluted clear liquid soap. Rinse your clear aligners off well before putting them back into your mouth.
Treatment times depend on the severity of your dental issues. The average time in SureSmile treatment is 9-15 months.
