SureSmile® AlignersGilroy, CA
SureSmile® is a treatment that works to gradually straighten teeth through the process of wearing a series of clear, custom-fit removable aligners. There are no brackets or wires like traditional metal braces. From simple teeth-straightening issues to complex, and maybe even bite issues, SureSmile® may be used to straighten and fix overly crowded teeth, overbite, underbite, crossbite, gaps between teeth and slight winged or crooked teeth. Dr. Gallagher uses the world's most advanced and accurate digital treatment planning software from SureSmile® to evaluate your treatment options. SureSmile® clear aligners are created using a proprietary algorithm and validated by an expert digital lab team to straighten teeth tooth-by-tooth for comfort with a laser-trimmed precision fit. SureSmile® invisible aligners provide gentle force over time to move your teeth. For the best results possible, SureSmile® aligners should be worn between 20-22 hours each day (including while asleep). Typically, you will change aligners every 2 to 3 weeks. Each set of aligners will gently move your teeth with precision to achieve your ideal smile.
