What is SureSmile?


SureSmile is a type of dental treatment that allows your dentist to customize your aligners to straighten your teeth. The treatment moves your teeth into their ideal spots more predictably and accurately.

How Does SureSmile Work?


SureSmile uses digital scans of your teeth to design archwires that suit your teeth. The scans show how your teeth are aligned and where the alignment needs correction.

Your dentist will show you the scans with your smiles before and after illustrations. This step is important because the dentist wants to ensure that the results align with your idea before manufacturing the aligners.

Once you consent to the plan, SureSmile will create aligners that match your teeth and your dentist’s recommendations. The aligners will use your body heat to move your teeth back into their original place. That reduces the times you need to see your dentist for follow-up checks.

Does SureSmile Differ from Other Clear Aligners?


SureSmile shares some similarities with other clear aligners. They use invisible aligners to align your teeth and can correct various dental alignment issues. However, SureSmile’s technology is better than other clear aligners. It can handle complex cases such as severe overbite, huge tooth gaps, and more.

Why Should I Consider SureSmile?


SureSmile has many benefits, including:

  • It uses 3D scanning for top precision.

  • You can see your expected outcome model before starting the treatment.

  • It sits more comfortably than traditional braces.

  • It can address various dental concerns, even severe misalignment.

  • It is more affordable than other aligners.

  • It involves fewer dental visits, saving you time and money over the treatment duration.


Does SureSmile Have Any Risks?


SureSmile does not pose any risk to your teeth. The aligners do not change your teeth faster than other aligners. SureSmile’s technology only allows your teeth to move in a straighter path to their correct positions, shortening the time.

How Long Does it Take to See the Results from SureSmile?


Most people notice improvements in their smiles within a few months. You should expect to see full results after you finish your treatment in about 11 to 18 months.

How Much Does SureSmile Cost?


Your dentist will determine the cost of your treatment as it varies depending on how complex your case is.
