Clear Aligners Q & A

What are clear aligners?

Clear aligners are a teeth-straightening system that offers an alternative to traditional metal braces. After extensive research, Smile Perfector Dental Group chose to offer the SureSmile aligner system. This system offers many benefits, especially as compared to traditional metal braces. 

One of the benefits of SureSmile is the fact that your aligner trays are created in-house. This saves time in your treatment plan and also allows Dr. Shouhed to make alterations to your treatment as needed. 


How does SureSmile work?

The SureSmile system uses a series of clear plastic aligner trays to gently shift teeth into optimal positioning. The system delivers results over time, allowing your teeth, gums, and underlying bone tissue the chance to adapt to these changes. 

SureSmile can deliver many of the same results as traditional metal braces. Treatable cases include:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Cross bite
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • General misalignment 

During your initial consultation, Dr. Shouhed uses advanced digital imaging to determine whether SureSmile is the right option to perfect your smile. You’ll understand the pros and cons needed to make an informed decision about your care plan.


What is it like to go through SureSmile treatment?

You’ll wear your SureSmile aligners around the clock, removing them only when eating or drinking and to complete your dental hygiene routines. The aligners fit snugly over your teeth and are easy to place and remove. 

Your aligners indicate “U” for the upper tray and “L” for the lower tray, making it easy to insert them properly. They even have the first four letters of your name engraved on each tray, so multiple family members can go through treatment at once with no question of which aligners belong to whom. 


How long does it take for SureSmile treatments to work?

Every treatment plan is unique and depends on your specific needs. In general, the SureSmile system is designed to deliver results in less time than other tray-based alignment options. 

The Smile Perfector Dental Group team uses advanced digital imaging and proprietary software to create precise treatment plans. Robotic technology and 3-D imaging models guide tray production and treatment planning. 

When you come in for your initial consultation, Dr. Shouhed will discuss how the SureSmile system can work for you. You’ll learn the estimated treatment timeline, as well as the cost. You can help reduce treatment time by wearing your aligners as suggested and scheduling routine appointments to track your progress.
