SureSmile and Invisalign in Grand Prairie
Easy, Removable Solutions for Cosmetic Dentistry
Nobody likes having teeth that are crooked. Fortunately, orthodontic technology has improved over the past decade. Years ago the only option was traditional wire braces, today there are several solutions to straighten teeth for teens and adults.
But which is the best way to straighten teeth without braces? That depends on several factors, like how much correction is needed, your lifestyle, and your budget.
At Grand Prairie Family Dental, Dr. Khademazad offers two alternatives to traditional braces: Invisalign and SureSmile. To determine which may be best for you, it’s best to take a look at the features of each system. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually - week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you'll be smiling like you never have before!
Invisalign works by using a series of clear aligners to move the teeth. The aligners are made with Invisalign's own patented, thermoplastic material called SmartTrack.
What is the Invisalign Clear Aligner Process?
The first step is to make an appointment at Grand Prairie Family Dental. We’ll take a 3D scan of your teeth and calculate an exact treatment plan. We send your scan to Invisalign, to create a series of aligners custom designed for you. Invisalign trims each aligner by hand and tests them as part of their quality control process to ensure the perfect fit.
Each Invisalign aligner is a little different than the one before it. You will wear each one for around two weeks before switching to the next one and, through this process, your teeth slowly move. Depending on your specific plan, you’ll have a brand new smile in as little as 9 months.
SureSmile is a different clear aligner system that is anything but traditional.
What is the SureSmile Clear Aligner Process?
The process begins when you visit Dr. Khademazad at our office in Grand Prairie to discuss your treatment plan. During this initial visit, Dr. Khademazad will take a 3D scan of your teeth. Next, he will design your ideal bite with the SureSmile Treatment Planning Software before sending all of this data to SureSmile.
Your SureSmile aligner is designed to shift your teeth into the optimal position in the shortest period of time. This means of achieving tooth movement is much more precise than the one-size-fits-all braces of the past.
