SureSmile® uses a series of custom-made clear aligners to shift your teeth and straighten your smile. Your aligners are removable and fit comfortably over your teeth to guide them into the correct position as determined by your dentist. Here is what you can expect:
1. During your consultation, Dr. Jenkins will take digital pictures of your teeth and bite. Using this information, he will design a treatment plan to guide your teeth into the desired alignment.
2. Your X-rays and treatment plan will be sent to a SureSmile® laboratory. Their skilled technicians will design a series of customized clear aligners to gently move your teeth in your jaw.
3. Once your aligners are ready, you will come back to our office for a fitting. Treatment will begin as soon as you put on your first aligner. Wear the aligners 22 hours a day, 7 days a week, and go to check-ups with your dentist to pick up your next aligner every 1-2 weeks.
