Common Questions About SureSmile
How does SureSmile work?
SureSmile aligners take a less comprehensive approach to tooth realignment than traditional orthodontic braces and aligners. Rather than shifting all of your teeth, SureSmile focuses on the most visible upper and lower teeth at the front of your smile. By ensuring proper alignment of these teeth, SureSmile ensures a more symmetrical and attractive smile while minimizing the amount of tooth movement necessary.
Is treatment really less than a year long?
Yes! Realigning your front, visible teeth isn’t as complex as realigning all of the teeth on your upper and lower dental ridges. Therefore, successfully correcting your smile with SureSmile aligners can often be achieved in less than year, rather than the 12-24 months that other options require.
How do I know if SureSmile will work for me?
While the unique esthetic focus of SureSmile aligners means treatment is faster and more convenient, it also means that the clear aligners are best suited for patients with mild to moderate cases of malocclusion. If you have more significant tooth misalignment, than you may require a more comprehensive solution, such as Invisalign® aligners or traditional orthodontic braces. We can help you ensure that SureSmile is a good fit before recommending it by performing a thorough examination to diagnose the extent of your malocclusion.
