Did you know that SureSmile clear aligners are often called clear braces or invisible braces? They utilize the newest technology in orthodontics to create a beautiful, straight smile. You can straighten your smile with clear aligners, as they are way less obvious than the old-school method of wires and metal brackets used in traditional braces. Instead, they’re clear while providing the same long-lasting results as traditional braces. They may seem like a magic trick, but they’re real, and provide real results to boot.

The Science Behind the Process: Why SureSmile?

The Process

Now that we know SureSmile aligners are trustworthy and provide numerous advantages for straighter teeth, let’s go over the process for getting them.

  1. First, Dr. Caye will take a 3D digital model of your teeth. This model will be sent off to SureSmile, where they create the perfect clear aligners for your teeth from the 3D mold.
  2. Similar to braces, SureSmile aligners will gradually move your teeth to where they need to go. They’re made with a strong and durable plastic material. So, you’ll be wearing your aligners throughout the day.
  3. Once it’s time, you’ll switch to your new aligner and continue the process of wearing for the recommended time (usually around 20 hours a day, and two weeks with each aligner).
  4. Depending on your specific case, you’ll wear your aligners from anywhere between 6 months to two years.

Straighter Teeth Encourage Better Hygiene

In addition to the aesthetic advantages, straighter teeth offer, they also provide a better environment for a healthier mouth. With straight teeth, keeping them clean is an easier task as it is much easier to brush and floss in between them.  This advantage eliminates the possibility of greater plaque buildup, and cavities as toothbrushes and floss can access crevices effectively.
