SureSmile is a proprietary orthodontic technology in which an advanced robot ensures the archwires of your braces move your teeth into the desired position with extreme precision and accuracy. It is currently the most advanced and accurate means of ensuring you achieve the perfect smile with a beautifully aligned set of teeth.

What is SureSmile?

During traditional orthodontic treatments, your dentist relies on two-dimensional x-rays and plaster molds to develop a treatment plan for misaligned teeth. Following this, the dentist applies orthodontic brackets to your teeth and gradually adjusts them to make your teeth move slowly in the desired location. As such, traditional orthodontic procedures rely on your dentist's ability to manually bend and reshape archwires.

SureSmile is a revolutionary orthodontic procedure in which a computer monitoring software takes 3D images of your teeth, allowing the dentist to curate far more effective treatment plans. This computer-assisted orthodontic treatment is so accurate that you can achieve straightened teeth with greater accuracy and far sooner than with traditional orthodontic procedures.

Besides efficacy and accuracy, SureSmile provides state-of-the-art clear aligners, ensuring complete comfort during the procedure. The SureSmile aligners are made of high-grade materials that are completely transparent, so it's not evident that you're even wearing aligners or braces. As such, you don't have to worry about highly-visible and unsightly metallic braces.

How does SureSmile work?

Stage 1: Advanced Imaging

During your initial consultation, Dr. Rink determines if you’re a suitable candidate for the procedure. If, like many other patients, SureSmile is well suited to your needs, Dr. Rink takes a digital impression of your teeth, using a handheld scanner, called OraScanner, to create a 3D computer model of your teeth. This allows Dr. Rink to carefully and accurately analyze your teeth’s position and to see your teeth and dental structure from different angles for greater accuracy.

Stage 2: Curating a Treatment Plan

After carefully analyzing your teeth and dental structure, Dr. Rink uses the SureSmile software to create a personalized treatment plan. The software produces a visual representation of every step in your SureSmile treatment, with which the doctor can show you how your teeth will progress to perfection. This allows you to see the results of the treatment beforehand.

Stage 3: Wearing the SureSmile Clear Aligners

Finally, the SureSmile procedure uses advanced robotics to create high-grade aligners that provide the specific movements your teeth need to achieve optimal alignment. Once the clear aligners are prepared, the doctor will show you how to wear them.

Am I a suitable candidate for SureSmile?

SureSmile is a suitable orthodontic procedure for most people because it can be adjusted to various complexity needs, whether they require major or minor orthodontic changes. During your initial consultation, Dr. Rink will examine your teeth and take accurate 3D impressions to determine if there’s any reason you’re unsuitable for the treatment.

What are the benefits of SureSmile?

  • Optimal Results: SureSmile aligners are designed using the latest technologies to ensure perfect alignment results.
  • Quick Procedure: SureSmile braces are designed to move your teeth in the desired direction faster than other procedures. With SureSmiles, your entire orthodontic journey can finish 34% faster than with other treatments.
