straighten-your-smile

Did you know that SureSmile aligners are often called invisible braces, or clear braces? They utilize the newest technology in orthodontics to create a straight and beautiful smile. You can straighten your smile with clear aligners, as they are way less obvious than the traditional method of wires and metal brackets used in traditional braces. Instead, they’re clear and almost non-traceable, all while providing the same long-lasting results as traditional braces. They may seem like a magic trick, but they’re real, and provide real results to boot.

Major Advantages with SureSmile Aligners 

In a nutshell, clear aligners work similarly to braces. They slowly move your teeth (AKA, straighten them) over time. However, the differences are major. SureSmile invisible aligners are clear, removeable, and often work faster than traditional braces. Here’s a breakdown of some of the major advantages to straighten your smile with SureSmile:

  • SureSmile aligners are super simple to keep clean.
  • SureSmile aligners are fully adjustable and can be adjusted throughout your time wearing them.
  • They’re comfortable and won’t cause the usual irritation in your gums and cheeks like traditional braces.
  • They’re virtually unnoticeable.
  • They’re affordable and fit in your budget.

Trustworthy Methods

We put our trust in SureSmile aligners for a reason. They use cutting-edge products and offer multiple, comprehensive tools to customize your individual needs to formulate the perfect treatment plan for you. They offer treatment planning software, appliance fabrication, and support to help guide you through your clear aligners and answer any questions you may have. SureSmile is at the forefront of superior, precise, and safe clear aligners.

The Science Behind the Process: Why SureSmile?

The Process

Now that we know SureSmile aligners are trustworthy and provide numerous advantages for straighter teeth, let’s go over the process for getting them.

  1. First, your orthodontist will take a 3D digital model of your teeth. This model will be sent off to SureSmile, where they create the perfect clear aligners for your teeth from the 3D mold.
  2. Similar to braces, SureSmile aligners will gradually move your teeth to where they need to go. They’re made with a strong and durable plastic material. So, you’ll be wearing your aligners throughout the day.
  3. Once it’s time, you’ll switch to your new aligner and continue the process of wearing for the recommended time (usually around 20 hours a day, and two weeks with each aligner).
  4. Depending on your specific case, you’ll wear your aligners from anywhere between 6 months to two years.

gum-disease

When you look at someone’s smile, you probably notice their teeth, or maybe how bright their smile is. However, you can’t forget about the importance of your gums! They may not seem like the star of the show, but they’re just as important as every other part of your mouth and have to be taken care of to maintain a bright and healthy smile. Even if you take care of your teeth and don’t have any cavities to worry about, you’re not immune to gum disease.

Learn More about the Health Risks of Gum Disease HERE.

What is Gum Disease?

Basically, gum disease happens when plaque builds up along and under the gum line. Filled with bacteria, plaque is a sticky film-like substance that can cause infections, gum disease, and even tooth decay. Plaque is also the culprit behind gingivitis, which is the earliest stage of gum disease. When you begin to experience gingivitis, your gums may become:

  • Red
  • Swollen
  • Inflamed
  • Tender
  • Prone to bleeding

Stages of Gum Disease

At this early stage of gum disease, your teeth and bone holding your teeth where they are aren’t yet impacted and the damage can be controlled and is reversible. Yay! With diligent brushing and flossing, and twice-a-year cleanings with your dentist, your gum disease can improve significantly and can go away.

The later stages of gum disease, also known as periodontitis, aren’t as easy to reverse. Unlike gingivitis, periodontitis affects the bone and teeth. Sometimes teeth may need to be removed and more advanced treatment by your dentist will be needed to combat the later stages of gum disease.

Gum Disease Effects More Than Just Your Mouth

While knowing about and treating gum disease is extremely important for your dental/oral health, it’s also crucial to remember that your body is all connected, so if one area suffers, your whole body with feel the effects. The same can be said about gum disease. It affects more than just your mouth. In fact, according to WebMD, inflammation in the gums is directly linked with other health problems, including:

  • Heart attacks
  • Dementia
  • Diabetes
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Premature birth

“Scientists have identified several links between poor oral health and other health problems — although they can’t yet establish cause and effect. This list of health problems has been growing as research continues,” says WebMD.

SureSmile Clear Aligners

SureSmile Clear Aligners are a great option for those looking for a discreet orthodontic treatment. Think “Invisible Braces” — that’s Right!! No more noticeable and embarrassing metal braces, just convenience and results.

With comfort, invisibility, and convenience, it can be hard to believe that SureSmile clear aligners are real.

Veneers

Veneers can correct a wide variety of dental imperfections. Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that are custom-crafted to improve the appearance of your teeth. They can improve the look of:

  • Chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth
  • Crooked or misaligned teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Short teeth

Teeth Whitening

While over-the-counter whitening methods are easily accessible at the drug store, nothing compares to a professional teeth whitening service. Not only does a professional teeth whitening whiten better and last longer, it’s also safer for your teeth and doesn’t produce sensitivity often associated with whitening strips. We believe that dentist-supervised teeth whitening is the most effective cosmetic dentistry procedure for brightening your smile and the dentists offer several teeth whitening options.

Bonding & Recontouring

We use bonding to repair chipped teeth. We use composite materials to create a strong and durable structure that will feel like your natural tooth. Recontouring can also correct a chipped tooth, along with cracked teeth, or overlapping teeth. We will slightly alter the shape, length, or position of a tooth.

Full Mouth Reconstruction | Smile Makeover

Using a combination of restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatment options, Adams Dental Group can combine multiple services to restore the functionality, health, and look of your smile with a smile makeover! If you’ve suffered from tooth damage, decay, or loss, full mouth reconstruction may be a wonderful option for you, and often includes a combination of:
