How Do SureSmile Aligners Work?

SureSmile treatment in Charlotte achieves your dream smile through graduating sets of custom clear aligners. The trays consist of a smooth, clear, body-safe acrylic that applies pinpoint pressure to gently shift your teeth into the optimal positions. The clear aligners are completely removable, which allows you to maintain your normal daily oral hygiene routine and continue to enjoy your favorite foods and drinks throughout your treatment. SureSmile is increasingly popular because the clear aligners allow you to straighten your smile discreetly since there are no metal wires or brackets.

The treatment guidelines require you to wear the clear trays for 22 hours each day. You will graduate to the next set of aligners approximately every two weeks. Due to the strict requirements of the treatment, we only offer SureSmile to responsible patients who are 18 and older.

What Can SureSmile Address?

SureSmile aligners are an effective treatment for a variety of mild to moderate bite misalignments or malocclusions. Our friendly team will carefully check the severity of your misalignment to determine whether you qualify for clear aligners. Here are some of the bite issues SureSmile can correct:

  • Crooked Teeth
  • Crowded Teeth
  • Gapped Teeth
  • Underbites
  • Overbites

You can select this service as a stand-alone treatment or as part of a cosmetic or TMJ disorder treatment plan. Our compassionate dentist will discuss your options with you, including the pros and cons of the recommended services, so you are empowered to make an informed decision regarding your treatment plan.

Our SureSmile Process in Charlotte

Turning your dream smile into a reality requires the right treatment plan. That is why we take the time to get to know you and ask questions to ensure we fully understand your needs and smile goals. We perform a gentle exam of your teeth, jaws, and gums, complete with impressions, and send the information to a trusted lab where your SureSmile aligners will be created. If the alignment of your teeth, bite, or jaws is complex, we will refer you to a trusted orthodontist.

Once we have received your graduating sets of custom trays, we invite you to return to our office for your final fitting. During this time, we will review the requirements of the treatment and provide helpful tips and instructions to guide you through the process. Our compassionate dentist will advise you on the types of approved cleaners to use and schedule follow-up appointments to check on your progress and make any necessary adjustments.

SureSmile Aligners FAQs

Changing the way your smile looks is a complex and personal journey, so it's natural to have questions. Our team encourages you to voice your questions and concerns at any point during your appointment. We are happy to provide the answers and resources you need to make an informed decision regarding your treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about SureSmile aligners.

Does SureSmile hurt?
No. The clear aligners are made of smooth, thin plastic, so they won't poke or irritate the inside of your cheeks or lips. You may experience slight pressure when you switch to a new set of trays, but the sensation will go away within a day or two.

Are there health benefits to straighter teeth?
Yes. When your teeth are properly spaced, it makes them easier to brush and floss, which helps to prevent cavities, decay, and gum disease.

How long does SureSmile take?
Your treatment timeline will be unique to your needs and the severity of your bite misalignment. In general, the timeframe for SureSmile may be anywhere from 9-15 months.
