SureSmile elemetrix clear aligners are an effective alternative to traditional braces. They use a system of clear, removable trays to straighten teeth. They’re a great alternative if you want a straighter smile but do not want to wear metal braces, to finish off treatment if you already have traditional braces, or if you have had treatment in the past and want to make corrections to your smile.
Using SureSmile’s elemetrix technology, we create a 3D digital model of your teeth. This model is sent to SureSmile, where the aligner designs are printed out using a 3D printer. Each aligner is custom-made to fit over your teeth and designed to move teeth gradually into their proper position.
Just like braces, clear aligners use gradual force to control tooth movement, but without any metal wires or brackets. The aligners are made with a strong plastic material, and are fabricated to fit your mouth. Each aligner is created a little different, so each time you switch aligners, your teeth move a little more.
Aligners are worn for at least 20 hours each day, and for two weeks, before a new aligner is put in. The length of your treatment depends on the severity of your case, and can take anywhere between six months to two years.
