What is SureSmile?

SureSmileis a type of orthodontic treatment using clear aligners that gently move teeth into place. The trays are worn in a series over time to create a beautiful smile. SureSmile is a popular alternative to traditional braces, and do not have any brackets or wires. The aligners are discrete and are comfortable when worn, and do not cause any mouth or gum irritation.

The SureSmile trays are worn anywhere between 20-22 hours a day. The time worn each day depends on the patient's treatment plan and the level of correction needed. SureSmile aligners are easily removable for drinking and eating.


Having that beautiful straight smile is important, and we want our patients to be proud of their smile. A smile is the first thing you see, and our team will listen to each patient's goals to ensure we get you the results you desire.

SureSmile is a popular choice for both teens and adults. This treatment helps if you have overcrowding, chewing, or overbite issues. Older teens and adults can follow instructions daily and ensure the trays are worn for the required amount of time. On average this treatment takes between 6-18 months, and this is comparable to the treatment time for traditional braces. During our consultation process we will discuss each patient's age, level of correction, and smile goals to help choose which orthodontic treatment is best.
