“Invisalign treatment is the process of wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. No brackets and wires, and none of the restrictions that come with metal braces. Invisalign clear aligners are FDA-approved and contain no BPA, BPS, latex, or gluten. They are thin, clear, and fit snugly over your teeth, making them virtually invisible. Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible — people may not even notice you’re wearing them. You can remove them to eat and drink, to brush and floss, or for special occasions. There are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth or break, sending you to your doctor for an emergency visit.

Invisalign treatment can be a great solution for both adults and teens looking for a virtually invisible method to improve their smile. Innovations and technological advancements make it possible to fix nearly all common teeth-straightening and bite issues, from simple to complex — all without interrupting your busy life.” Source

What Are SureSmile® Aligners?

SureSmile® is a series of clear aligners made of elite Essex® plastic, custom-fitted to your exact smile to help gently move your teeth into a straight position. They are virtually invisible and are meant to be worn all day and night, but can be removed for brushing, flossing, and eating. They are especially useful for minor tooth movements, but can also tackle even more complex cases of malocclusions. By frequently changing the aligners, we can carefully move your teeth little-by-little into the perfect positions. Because this is done incrementally, but specifically, it can actually help you achieve your desired results faster than traditional braces.

What is the Process of Getting SureSmile®?

First, we will need to get a digital impression of your teeth and gums. This ensures you receive aligners that are perfectly fitted to your mouth and will be comfortable for the length of your treatment. Next, your dentist will evaluate your impression and analyze your bite and anatomical factors to create a fully customized treatment plan using proprietary SureSmile® software. Third, SureSmile® uses advanced technology and manufacturing to make your unique set of aligners. These aligners are so customized that we can move teeth individually if needed. Lastly, you will need to follow the treatment plan outlined by your dentist so that you can keep your teeth moving on schedule!

  • Virtually invisible
  • Incredibly comfortable
  • Removable to maintain excellent oral hygiene
  • Fully customizable

How Much Do SureSmile® Aligners Cost?

The cost of SureSmile® is similar to that of braces. Many insurances cover these aligners the same way they would for traditional braces – either by a percentage of the total treatment cost or in a specific dollar amount towards the total cost. If you have dental insurance, check with your insurer to find out whether your plan covers SureSmile® Aligners. Any remaining balance would be due to Fairbanks Family Dental Care.
