Traditional braces are not for everyone. Our dentists and team offer SureSmile® Aligners as an alternative option for straightening your teeth and improving your smile. SureSmile Aligners are an ideal solution for anyone looking for a more discreet orthodontic treatment and work to align your teeth without the use of brackets and wires. They can be used to treat all the same orthodontic problems as regular braces, including:
- Bad bites (such as overbites, underbites, crossbites and open bites)
- Crooked and crowded teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
Your SureSmile Aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly and are made from smooth, thin plastic to help ensure that your treatment will be comfortable as well as virtually invisible. Each set of aligners will make small changes to the positions and alignment of your teeth, and as you switch to a new set of aligners every few weeks, your teeth will gradually move into their proper positions. You will meet with Dr. Brett Barney and Dr. Jonathan Hall regularly throughout your treatment process to ensure that your smile is progressing as planned.
Your aligners are removable, which will help you be able to eat and drink anything you want as well as brush and floss with ease. But remember, the more you wear your aligners, the more quickly your treatment progresses, so please only remove them to eat, drink, and brush and floss your teeth. We also recommend that you clean your aligners regularly. Because they are made of clear plastic, dirty aligners can cause your teeth to appear discolored or stained. SureSmile Aligners are a great orthodontic option for teenagers and adults alike.
