Many adults may mistakenly believe that it's too late to address issues like noticeable gaps or misalignments in their smiles. After all, traditional braces are often associated with middle and high school students. At Amaze Dental, we're pleased to inform you that there's an alternative to metal braces for achieving your ideal smile. Our practice offers SureSmile, an orthodontic solution that replaces the conventional wire-and-bracket approach with a more discreet and aesthetically pleasing option. To learn more about this modern treatment, continue reading or give us a call today to schedule a consultation!
SureSmile treatment utilizes a series of clear plastic trays known as aligners, to be worn for a minimum of 22 hours daily. With each new set of aligners, a small section of your smile is gradually adjusted until all your teeth are in their desired positions. You'll wear each set for a few weeks before progressing to the next pair in the series. Following the completion of your treatment, wearing a retainer will be necessary to maintain your teeth in their newly aligned positions and prevent any potential reversion to their previous state.
While severe malocclusion may require traditional braces, SureSmile proves effective in treating a wide array of orthodontic issues, such as:
Overcrowding often affects both the aesthetics and functionality of your smile. Thankfully, these transparent aligners can gently guide your teeth into their correct positions in as little as 12 to 18 months on average!
SureSmile allows for the gradual closure of gaps between your teeth, enhancing your oral health, bite, and overall confidence along the way!
Common bite issues like overbites, underbites, and crossbites, if left unaddressed, can lead to premature wear, chronic teeth grinding, and other complications. Thankfully, SureSmile is capable of effectively correcting these bite problems too!
By choosing SureSmile, you can anticipate the following advantages:
Determining the exact cost of your treatment depends on various factors, which we'll assess during your consultation. When weighing the benefits of SureSmile against traditional braces, it becomes evident that the investment in your smile is worthwhile. Fewer bite-related problems translate to reduced time in the dental chair and lower expenses on procedures like fillings.
