Are your teeth crooked? Maybe you have spaces between your teeth? What about your bite? Is it off so much that your jaw hurts? These are common orthodontic problems that dentists see every day. Luckily, living with them doesn’t have to be a reality thanks to the many safe and effective methods of treatment available today. But if you’re one of the many individuals who would prefer to keep the spotlight off your smile during treatment, you’ll be happy to learn that Legacy Trails Dental offers SureSmile clear aligners in Plano. These are an alternative to traditional metal braces that gives you the care your smile needs without hindering your appearance in the process. To find out how you can start treatment, contact us today.
SureSmile clear aligners are very similar to Invisalign as they are made of clear plastic. The difference is that SureSmile uses advanced technology to produce a product that is custom-made and can have you seeing results in less time than Invisalign. The software used works to analyze your facial structure to ensure your aligners are comfortable and will move your smile in the right direction to achieve desired results.
You will first need to discuss with your dentist in Plano your goals and what you wish to change about your smile. After performing a thorough evaluation of your smile and dental x-rays, our team will determine if you are qualified to move forward with SureSmile aligners. If so, the following steps will be taken:
Once you receive your aligners, it will be necessary for you to wear them for 22 hours each day, for two to three weeks at a time. This timeline will be based specifically on your individual case. After that time, you will swap out your current set for the next in the series, at which time you will begin to see and feel your teeth shifting.
You will be expected to keep regularly scheduled dental visits with us to receive additional trays and allow our dentists to monitor your progress. In less than a year, you should see a noticeable difference in your smile.
