SureSmile aligners are made of a clear, plastic material that offers transparency when worn. Unlike metal braces that shine a spotlight on your orthodontic treatment and can be uncomfortable to wear, SureSmile trays are created using advanced technology that analyzes your facial structure and ensures your aligners are custom-built to comfortably and effectively move your teeth into the right position throughout your treatment plan.
Apart from the clear and discreet approach to treatment, SureSmile aligners offer:
To receive SureSmile aligners, your dentist in Richardson must first start by examining your smile. After determining you are a qualified candidate for this type of orthodontic treatment, Dr. Azmoodeh will take digital impressions to create a blueprint for your new smile.
Using special SureSmile software, they will take the 3D image of your smile and analyze your bite. This will, in turn, allow them to construct the ideal treatment plan to help you achieve a healthier, more aesthetically pleasing smile by the time you are finished with SureSmile. As they move through the process of creating your digital smile, you will be able to see the exact movements of your teeth.
Once satisfied with the imaging, your aligners will be created and provided to you within a few weeks, at which time you will receive your first set of trays and instructions on how to wear them to achieve on-time results. It will be imperative that you wear your aligners at least 22 hours each day, only taking them out to eat, drink, or clean them.
After 2-3 weeks of wear, you will swap out your current aligners for the next set. You will begin to feel your teeth gently shift, putting you one step closer to your dream smile. Throughout treatment, you will need to keep your regularly scheduled dental visits, and depending on your individual case, you can expect to be finished with SureSmile in 3-12 months.
