At Team Leatherman Care Dentistry, we are proud to offer our patients in the Lorain, OH area SureSmile clear aligners that fit seamlessly into their daily routine and offer great results for a straighter and happier smile!
What are SureSmile Aligners?
SureSmile aligners are a type of clear braces that are similar to Invisalign. They are made from clear plastic and are custom-made to fit each patient’s teeth. Treatment involves a series of aligner trays, each one progressing further along in the treatment process.
Compared to other aligners, SureSmile aligners are reported to have fewer refinements, faster treatment times, and more predictable outcomes, resulting in higher patient satisfaction. Additionally, SureSmile aligners are only available through SureSmile-verified dentists, like Team Leatherman Care Dentistry who control the treatment planning and checkups for proper care.
SureSmile VPro is a SureSmile device that uses high-frequency vibration (HFV) to accelerate tooth movement, reduce discomfort, and improve aligner tracking during clear aligner treatment. The device is intended for use by the patient during treatment with aligners and is used for just 5 minutes a day at home. It may shorten treatment times and speed up treatment time by 50%.
Is SureSmile right for me?
Determining if SureSmile is right for you depends on your unique dental needs and treatment goals. SureSmile is a popular choice for individuals who want to straighten their teeth with clear, discreet aligners. However, it is best to consult with your dental care team at Team Leatherman Care Dentistry since we are experienced with SureSmile to determine if it is the right option for you. We can evaluate your teeth and provide recommendations based on your specific situation.
What Should I Expect on My Smile Journey?
At the initial consultation your dentist will take photos and a digital scan and create a customized treatment plan based on your results. You will receive your SureSmile aligners 2-4 weeks from your initial appointment. You’ll meet with your dentist again and go over the treatment plan. At this point, you’ll receive your SureSmile aligners and SureSmile VPro and your dentist will instruct you on how to use them. After this point, you will have ongoing check-ins with your dentist to make sure you’re on the right path and make adjustments if necessary!
