suresmile-clear-aligners

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.

SureSmile Clear Aligners Offer Major Advantages

Basically, clear aligners work similarly to braces. They slowly move or straighten your teeth straighten over time. However, the differences are major. SureSmile aligners are clear, removeable, and often work faster than traditional braces. Here’s a breakdown of some of the major advantages to straighten your smile with SureSmile:

  • are comfortable and won’t cause the usual irritation in your gums and cheeks like traditional braces
  • your treatment is overseen by Dr. Caye to ensure accuracy and success
  • virtually unnoticeable
  • super simple to keep clean
  • fully adjustable and can be adjusted throughout your time wearing them
  • affordable and fit in your budget

Trustworthy Methods

We put our trust in SureSmile clear aligners for a reason. They use cutting-edge products and offer multiple, comprehensive tools to customize your individual needs to formulate the perfect treatment plan for you. They offer treatment planning software, appliance fabrication, and support to help guide you through your treatment and answer any questions you may have. SureSmile is at the forefront of superior, precise, and safe clear aligners.

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.

Restore Your Smile: Broken Teeth Repair

When a large piece of a tooth is knocked out, oftentimes the root and the pulp is exposed. This can result in moderate to severe pain levels and you’ll want to see your dentist ASAP to fix your smile and eliminate your pain. If you leave your tooth for a long period of time, you can experience more pain, swelling, infection, and even a medical emergency. To fix a single, or a few broken teeth, you may consider:

  • Dental Implant: Dental implants offer a permanent replacement for missing teeth and an effective solution that will look and feel as natural as your original teeth.
  • Porcelain Crown: A dental crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant.
  • Dental Inlay: This replaces a moderately sized area of teeth that have been damaged due to tooth decay or trauma that are too large to be repaired by fillings.
  • Onlay: Onlays are fabricated outside of the mouth and are typically made out of porcelain.

Restore Your Smile: Missing Teeth Repair

If you’re missing a tooth or teeth, you may not have any immediate symptoms. However, over time, pressure will build on either side of the gaps and can collapse inwards, making opposing teeth start to move around. This is called malocclusion. Basically, the longer you wait to fix a missing tooth, the more complicated the fix will be. So, it’s very important to see your dentist right away and begin discussing potential restorations for a missing tooth/teeth. Options may include:

  • Dental Implants: a permanent replacement for missing teeth and an effective solution that will look and feel as natural as your original teeth.
  • Porcelain Bridges: – A fixed dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants.
  • Dentures: There are three types of dentures, fixed, partial, and permanent. Dentures make it easier to speak and eat and can help fill out the appearance of your face and profile.

clear-aligner-therapy

What if I told you that you could achieve a straighter smile with comfort, discreetness, and ease? Although it probably sounds too good to be true, ClearCorrect invisible aligners are all that and a bag of chips! ClearCorrect aligners live up to their claims of comfort, ease, and invisibility by using new, advanced dental technology that can straighten your teeth without the discomfort and look of traditional braces. If you’ve ever considered orthodontic treatment for your smile, now is the time to try our ClearCorrect aligners.

What Is Clear Aligner Therapy?

Basically, clear aligner therapy is a series of clear dental appliances that are formed to a patient’s shape/size of teeth. They gradually improve the alignment and appearance of your teeth by applying gentle pressure. Clear aligner therapy is becoming more and more popular as more patients discover the great results and ease of use. However, it’s important to know that not all clear aligners are the same quality.

The ClearCorrect Difference

You may have heard or seen commercials that are advertising cheaper, mail-order alternatives to ClearCorrect. While the idea may sound good in theory, it’s important to know the real difference between ClearCorrect and any mail-order options.

With ClearCorrect aligners, you get the major advantage of professional monitoring by the Team at Premier Dental. Mail-order aligners cannot offer real life dental care like Dr. Caye can. The process for ClearCorrect aligners begins with a consultation by Dr. Caye to determine if you are a good candidate. If so, the doctor scans the area of your chief complaint, to accurately measure current position of your teeth. This data is then analyzed and sent to ClearCorrect to begin fabrication of a treatment plan and a starter kit.

Know the Risks and Rewards

Alternative, mail-order alternatives cannot claim a dentist-approved stamp behind their process. Due to this, many patients using these systems are having to meet with their dentists to achieve the results they want.

Many dentists are having to correct and fix new and original issues left behind due to mail-order alignment systems. That’s why you always want to know your dentist is backing and monitoring your clear aligner therapy and treatment with ClearCorrect aligners. That way, you’ll always get the professional results you’re hoping for. This is because Dr. Caye will take accurate impressions of your teeth and send them off to the ClearCorrect laboratory, where an exact 3-D model of your teeth will be created. A team of experts will then map out a completely customized treatment plan using digital mapping and molding technology.

ClearCorrect aligners are:

  • Removable
  • Discreet
  • Comfortable
  • Dentist-approved
  • Provide no dietary restrictions
  • Have no obstructions to brushing or flossing

Invisible Braces: ClearCorrect Has Many Benefits

You can wear ClearCorrect aligners at any time, except when you’re eating and drinking. Aside from obvious aesthetic benefits where people will barely notice you have them in, you won’t have to worry about wires or brackets accompanying them.

With ClearCorrect, clear aligner therapy, you can treat various issues such as:

  • crowded teeth
  • crooked overbites
  • underbites
  • spaces between teeth

Furthermore, ClearCorrect is irritation free with little discomfort in the adjustment periods while wearing them. It is encouraged that you wear them 22 hours per day as you progress through treatment.

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.
