What is SureSmile?

SureSmile is a system of clear aligners that correct orthodontic concerns, such as misaligned teeth and malocclusions (bite abnormalities). 

Like conventional braces, SureSmile shifts your teeth into a straighter, more uniform position through gradual force. However, while braces adhere to your teeth and take several years to produce long-lasting results, SureSmile is removable and can effectively improve your smile in less than a year.

Why should I consider SureSmile over braces?

SureSmile gives you the flexibility to straighten your teeth on your own terms. Clear aligners address many of the same orthodontic concerns as braces, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • Crowded mouth
  • Gapped teeth

In addition, SureSmile offers many benefits over braces, such as:


Clear aligners are smooth against your gums and inner cheeks, minimizing irritation, cuts, and sores.


While braces bond to your teeth, SureSmile is removable. You can take out your clear aligners to brush, floss, eat, and drink.


SureSmile is completely transparent, so others typically can’t tell when you’re wearing the aligners.


Braces usually take about 18 months to three years to straighten teeth and correct malocclusions, while SureSmile can produce beautiful results in as little as six months.

After a comprehensive dental evaluation, the team can determine whether you’re an ideal candidate for SureSmile.

What does SureSmile treatment involve?

SureSmile requires digital treatment planning to create custom made clear aligners that mold to the unique shape and size of your teeth. The team performs a thorough dental exam and teeth cleaning before taking digital X-rays and cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans. These imaging scans allow the team to map out each step of your treatment plan.

Robotic technology manufactures your custom made clear aligners. Every two weeks, you wear a new set of aligners that you use for at least 20 hours a day. To ensure your plan stays on track, only remove SureSmile to brush, floss, and eat. Maintaining a proper oral hygiene routine helps your clear aligners remain durable and effective.
