If misaligned or crooked teeth affect your smile's appearance, you can benefit from Sure Smile clear aligners. Clear aligners or invisible aligners are transparent orthodontic devices used to straighten misaligned or crooked teeth using a constant gentle force.
A clear Aligner, an alternative to metal braces, is a custom-fit and invisible tray used to correct minor misalignments of teeth and straighten them. They apply gentle pressure on the teeth and push them to the desired position.
At About Smiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we recommend Sure Smile clear aligners for patients who wish to straighten their smile without the hassles of wearing conventional metal braces.

Sure Smile Process
A patient's journey to straight, aligned teeth with Sure Smile begins when they visit us at About Smiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. we begin the procedure after discussing the treatment with the patient and providing them with a 3-D image of the final result. After evaluating the patient's teeth, we obtain 3-D images of their mouth using digital imaging systems. This is to formulate a customized treatment plan for the patient after considering their teeth position and severity of the malocclusion. These are sent to the lab to fabricate the complete series of clear aligners required to complete the treatment.
In the subsequent appointment, the patient receives the aligners. We will explain how to use them and when to change them to the next set. Patients should mandatorily wear the aligners for 22 hours to achieve good results. The time required to complete the treatment varies for each patient as per their dental condition.
