All I want for Christmas is…straight teeth! In case you missed it, ever since I was a child I struggled not wanting to smile with my mouth open in fear of showing my teeth. As a kid I never got braces or really gave my teeth the attention they deserved and as I grew up getting the perfect smile I always dreamed of seemed like just that…a dream.
That’s why when I was approached by Dentsply Sirona to try out the SureSmile Aligner System I was beyond overjoyed. There are a lot of aligners out there but when the doctor informed me that this SureSmile Aligner is backed by Dentsply Sirona, the world’s largest dental manufacturer I was assured that this would be a positive experience. He spoke about the technology that backs the treatment combined with the manufacturing being here in Texas, that was all I needed to hear. I was curious about Invisalign for a while but SureSmile blows them away.
I went to Dr. Joseph Gray to get fitted for the SureSmile Aligners + to better understand the whole process. For my teeth, the process will take 12 months to have the smile I always dreamed of. The aligners are going to correct my overbite, overcrowding etc so I can’t wait to see the results. What I love about SureSmile is that they actually integrate a 3D Model of your teeth with state of the art technology making the aligners custom fit perfectly to your mouth.
So far I have been wearing the aligners for one week + while it has taken a bit of an adjustment period, after just a few days I can feel my teeth moving + that feeling is super exciting! You are supposed to keep your aligners in 20-22 hours a day, only taking them out to eat so you can see results in no time.
You swap out your aligners every 7-10 days to always keep your teeth moving + SureSmile provides you a handy patient kit to keep your aligners clean + in tip top condition.
I will be sharing my experience here on the blog throughout the journey and in a couple of months I will be able to show you the movement from the aligners all heading towards a straighter smile! To learn more about the SureSmile Aligner System click HERE.
