Doctor directed SureSmile® Clear Aligners are designed using advanced software to ensure they fit comfortably, promote better oral hygiene and deliver the exact tooth movements needed to achieve your ideal smile.
Sometimes called “Invisible braces” or “clear braces”, Dental Professionals commonly call them “clear aligners”. Clear Aligners are a technological advancement that has made orthodontic treatment less obvious, while moving teeth and aligning jaws to create a healthy, beautiful smile.
Clear Aligners are a series of plastic aligners created using initial impressions or digital scans of your teeth as the starting point. The aligners are plastic replicas of your teeth. Wearing them puts gentle pressure on the teeth, ever-so-slightly repositioning them over time. Each set of aligners is worn for a week or two before going to the next set. Over time, teeth reach their ideal clinical alignment.
Your Dental Professional will take a digital scan of your mouth, which produces several images of your teeth in seconds. With Primescan™ intraoral scanner, the innovative Smart Pixel Sensor processes more than 1,000,000 3D points per second, producing a highly accurate representation of your teeth.
These digital images, when uploaded to our SureSmile software, allow your Dental Professional to assess how clear aligners will best work for you, creating your unique treatment plan.
