SureSmile Offers Straight Teeth in Less Time
Traditional metal braces have long been the most tried and trusted orthodontic treatment available today, and over the years, they have literally created countless beautiful smiles. However, that’s the past, and in the 21st-century, patients now have another option when it comes to correcting alignment issues in the teeth and bite: SureSmile. SureSmile combines all the best aspects of braces with the latest technology to deliver a solution that is uniquely effective and been proven to deliver results in less time than ever. Better yet, you can get it right here in Grand Prairie at Marvel Dental.
What is SureSmile?
SureSmile is built upon the principle that makes traditional braces work so well: a metal wire, held onto the teeth using multiple brackets, is used to apply a gentle but consistent pressure to the teeth that slowly brings them into their ideal positions.
However, this is where the similarities end.
With regular braces, the wire, which is what actually moves the teeth, is traditionally bent by hand. With SureSmile, this wire is bent by a robot. This allows the wire to be shaped with more precision so that the teeth move more efficiently, taking the shortest possible paths to their final destinations. How does the robot know exactly how to bend the wire? It uses a digital treatment plan created using a digital 3D impression of a patient’s teeth.
When you visit Marvel Dental to get SureSmile, your dentist will take this impression with a small scanner (no putty!), and this will be fed into software that enables them to design your treatment right on the spot. This is then sent to the lab with the wire-bending robot, and when your treatment is finally placed on your teeth, it’s guaranteed to execute your dentist’s plan perfectly.
Why Patients Love SureSmile
- Speed: SureSmile is able to straighten the teeth much, much faster than traditional braces. How much faster? About 30%. That means, if a treatment with regular braces is expected to take about 24 months, SureSmile can deliver the same results up to 8 months SOONER.
- Comfort: The SureSmile wire shifts the teeth as smoothly as possible, cutting down on the typical tooth and gum pain that many patients experience while undergoing orthodontic treatment.
- Reliability: Even though SureSmile is fast, it’s still able to provide consistent results just like regular braces that can be trusted to last a lifetime.
