You’ve been putting up with crooked and crowded teeth your whole life, and you’ve finally reached the point where you’re ready to do something about it. But if you don’t have the time or patience to deal with the inconvenience of traditional metal braces, are you out of luck?
Not anymore! There's no reason to live with metal brackets and wires when clear aligners can gently guide your teeth into proper alignment. SureSmile is an adult approach to orthodontic problems typically corrected by metal braces.
Maybe you already know that SureSmile is a very popular orthodontic treatment system that straightens your teeth quickly. If you have heard of SureSmile you probably also know that two of its most significant advantages is that they’re hardly noticeable when worn and they can be removed for eating and oral hygiene.
But we know you want more details before you even consider treatment, so let’s take a look at what SureSmile is and how it works.
How SureSmile Treatment Works
Using specifications determined by 3-D modeling and impressions of your teeth, the lab will create custom aligners designed to move your teeth gradually throughout treatment.
Since clear aligners are made of smooth plastic material, they won’t irritate the tender tissue inside your cheeks. Over the course of a year (sometimes more time, sometimes less), the aligners will work in sequence to move your teeth into the desired position.
You’ll be instructed to wear your aligners at least 22 hours per day and remove them for meals and oral hygiene. Since SureSmile aligners are crystal clear and conform to the shape of your teeth, most people won’t realize you're wearing them. You'll visit your dentist in Alpharetta, GA approximately every six weeks so they can monitor your progress.
Because SureSmile treatment gradually moves your teeth into place, you won't notice any significant difference day-to-day. But one day, you'll look in the mirror and realize that your smile is looking pretty good! You'll start to feel more confident, and soon everyone will notice that something about your appearance has changed for the better.
