SureSmile® Clear Aligners in Mount Vernon, WA

Get ready to transform your smile with SureSmile® clear aligners. These innovative aligners are similar to those offered by Invisalign®. They are designed to fit comfortably over your teeth, gently adjusting their alignment and spacing. Each set of SureSmile® aligners is custom-made using precise models of your teeth and desired results, ensuring a seamless progression of your smile transformation. You’ll switch to a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, with each set gradually shifting your teeth closer to your desired outcome. Typically, achieving your dream smile takes around two years.

Unlike traditional braces, SureSmile® aligners can be easily removed for eating, drinking, and cleaning, making your experience hassle-free. While they may initially feel snug, they will gradually become more comfortable.

Maintaining optimal oral hygiene during your SureSmile® journey will prevent food debris and bacteria from accumulating around your teeth. You’ll be well on your way to a radiant, confident smile with proper care and regular dental check-ups.

  • How does the clear aligner process work?

    To begin, we will take photographs of your teeth and face, dental impressions of your teeth, and X-rays. Those records are sent to a lab with detailed instructions on how we want the final result to appear.

    The lab will scan the impressions to create a 3D model of the teeth and work with your dentist to get the mold to its exact proportions. This step is done before the treatment commences to give you a clear image of the projected outcome.

    Once final, the trays are made and mailed to your dentist’s office. Each set of aligners in the series has to be worn continuously for about two weeks and removed only when eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. You must visit your dentist every four to six weeks to ensure treatment progresses. The treatment is complete once all the set of aligners in the series are worn. The standard treatment time, which depends on the case’s complexity, usually is six months to one year. However, wearing a retainer after complete treatment is suggested to stop your teeth from relocating to their original positions. Similar to the braces, the length of time the retainers should be worn may vary.

  • How much do clear aligners cost?

    The cost of this treatment is similar to the cost of metal braces. Costs can vary, depending on:

    1. Insurance coverage. Most insurance plans cover SureSmile® aligners the same way they cover metal braces.
    2. Length/complexity of treatment. With SureSmile®, you get new clear aligners every couple of weeks, so the cost varies depending on whether your treatment requires more (or fewer) aligners.

    If you have any financial questions, please contact our office. We will be happy to discuss your insurance coverage or any additional payment options available.

  • Who can use clear aligners?

    Most teens and adult patients requiring mild to moderate orthodontic corrections can use clear aligners. This includes patients with crooked and misaligned teeth or teeth that feature noticeable spacing problems. Clear aligners can even help patients with minor bite issues. However, not all orthodontic issues can be treated with clear aligners. More extensive problems will require additional treatment.

  • What are the advantages of clear aligners?

    Most people are excellent candidates for clear aligners. However, clear aligners may not be suitable for extensive orthodontic cases involving significant movement. Some may also choose fixed braces because there are no trays to lose.

    Clear aligners are an excellent option for:

    • Straightening your teeth without braces that others can see
    • Eating foods that are “off-limits” with traditional braces
    • Easily cleaning and brushing your teeth
