SureSmile Clear Aligners in Burleson, TX
If you’ve been thinking about straightening your teeth, look no further! Our dentist offers SureSmile® Clear Aligners in Burleson, TX!
SureSmile® is an innovative, discreet alternative to traditional braces. This is because it makes use of a clear aligner system, and most people won’t even notice you are wearing aligners. SureSmile® is used to straighten your teeth as quickly (and safely) as possible.
What Is SureSmile?
SureSmile® clear aligner technology is an orthodontic treatment that uses 3-D imaging to create customized clear aligners designed to straighten your smile in a timely manner. These aligners are replaced about every two weeks in order to move your teeth into the desired position.
Our cosmetic dentist in Burleson, TX, will see you at periodic visits to ensure your teeth are moving correctly.
How Does It Work?
SureSmile® works in three easy steps. The treatment is designed in a patient-specific manner that improves the experience and will lead to the perfect smile in a faster amount of time than traditional braces and other methods.
Here are the steps involved in SureSmile® treatment:
- Orthodontic 3D Imaging
- Customized treatment plan by your dentist
- Application of your customized trays

How is SureSmile® Different From Other Clear Aligners?
Other orthodontic methods are complex and rely on plaster molds and X-rays. When designing a treatment plan for other teeth-straightening options, the orthodontist creates a treatment plan using 2D images and a model of the teeth made from dental impressions.
SureSmile® clear aligners use a 3D computer monitoring system that takes more accurate pictures of your teeth and entire mouth, allowing your dentist to plan the most efficient series of movements for your unique case. Because the precision is improved, the number of visits to your dentist will be reduced.
Traditional braces require more appointment time for the adjusting wires and brackets, whereas SureSmile® requires less time for maintenance. Traditional braces also generally take longer and are uncomfortable.
Is SureSmile® Right for Me?
SureSmile® is one of the only clear aligner options that correct both mild to severe teeth problems.
Ideal candidates for SureSmile® clear aligners are those who have the following issues with their teeth:
- Open bite
- Crooked teeth

How Many Hours a Day Should I Wear SureSmile®?

SureSmile® works by exerting gentle yet constant pressure on your teeth to guide them into the correct position, so it’s important to maintain wearing them so that your testament time doesn’t need to be longer than it should be.

Generally, treatments with traditional braces take two or more years, whereas SureSmile® only takes 12 to 15 months.
