Straight Teeth, Fast!

Dr. Jaber Elias is very happy to offer SureSmile™ clear aligners to our patients. These innovative trays can provide straight teeth much more quickly than traditional braces in most cases. Many patients see full results in only 9 – 15 months! Clear aligners can correct such imperfections as crowding, wide spaces, overbite, underbite, and even crossbite. A fast, nearly invisible option for straighter teeth!

Clear aligners use advanced 3-D computer-imaging technology to prepare your entire treatment plan from the current positioning of your teeth to your final smile. From this plan, clear thermoplastic aligners are created. These are similar to teeth-whitening trays and are custom made to exactly fit your teeth. Gentle forces move your teeth into position. You replace the aligners with a new set about every two weeks and progress through treatment for about a year. Total treatment time is based on your personal needs and goals.

The aligners are easily removable to eat and drink what you want while in treatment, with no food restrictions. And keeping your teeth clean and free of plaque is just as easy as it was before treatment, because there are no braces to get in the way of brushing and flossing. The lack of braces, wires, or headgear eliminates any temporary mouth irritation, as well. So you can have a gorgeously straight smile, discreetly and comfortably, in an incredibly short time!
