Dr. Post at Centre Place Dental in Lincoln, Nebraska, uses SureSmile clear aligner therapy as a treatment for straightening smiles. Using transparent aligner trays customized to the smile, patients can gradually move teeth into proper alignment in a more discrete manner. SureSmile aligners fit over the teeth and are changed out every two weeks as the patient progresses through a custom series of aligners. When used as directed, most patients who have mild to moderate misalignment of their teeth will enjoy the advantages of a straighter smile in approximately one year or less in most cases.
When you first arrive for your SureSmile aligner appointment and have consulted with Dr. Post about your needs, we will begin with taking digital impressions with our camera and CAD/CAM system, which creates a digital model of your current smile. This information is then sent to the SureSmile laboratory to fabricate your aligners. A tray is made for each step to realign the teeth comfortably with each tray change. The result is a beautiful, attractive smile that functions at its best and is free from spacing or misaligned teeth.
SureSmile aligners are perfect for patients with mild to moderate misalignment of the bite or teeth and who want to achieve a straighter, more attractive smile. Patients must be committed to using the trays as directed to ensure they get the desired results in the recommended time frame. We will evaluate you and talk to you about what to expect with treatment to decide if SureSmile is right for you!
The primary advantage of this treatment is the ability to straighten your smile without covering the teeth with metal brackets and wires. This is what drives people to consider this method over conventional braces. SureSmile aligners are also comfortable and easy to clean, and they allow patients to brush and floss properly and avoid the increased risk of cavities and periodontal disease. Patients can also enjoy all of their favorite foods and snacks, such as popcorn and gum, without hesitation.
Several factors are involved in determining the final cost of SureSmile clear aligners. Our team will evaluate you to determine the time needed to address your concerns effectively with aligner trays and determine if your dental insurance plan offers any coverage or benefits that can be applied. Additionally, we provide financing options for patients paying out-of-pocket for this or other dental care solutions.
