Many adults think of metal "train-track" braces when they consider getting their teeth straightened. This used to be the main option for decades, and while they do their job, other options might interest you. SureSmile aligners are a popular, invisible alternative to traditional metal braces.
The Benefits of Clear Braces
While metal braces and SureSmile both do a great job in straightening teeth, there are some advantages SureSmile have over their traditional counterpart, including:
SureSmile is Invisible and Discreet
By far, the most beloved and attractive aspect of SureSmile is its intangible nature. Instead of wearing conspicuous and highly visible metal braces for a length of time, you instead wear an almost invisible product. Most of the people you talk to and engage with throughout the day may not even notice that you are wearing clear braces in Eagan, MN. They will only see your beautiful smile, and the confidence you have knowing you look your best every day.
Many people decide not to straighten their teeth because they are put off by metal braces. Professional adults especially are sensitive to how they come across. Metal braces are often associated with adolescence, which can affect how co-workers and clients might perceive you subconsciously.
SureSmile allows you to improve your appearance, invest in your teeth longterm—all without people even realizing. When you smile for pictures, they won't be noticeable, so you can smile as large as you want. Clear braces are an attractive and comfortable choice!
If the only reason you haven't straightened your teeth is due to concerns on how it will affect your appearance, then know that SureSmile solves this and other concerns.
Eat Without Restraint
Metal braces have the unfortunate tendency to limit the foods you can eat. Either some foods are too tough and painful to chew, or they get embarrassingly trapped in the wires.
SureSmile invisible braces can be removed before meals, so you can eat whatever you want. After you're done eating, you simply brush and floss to ensure there are no food particles that could make your aligners dull and dingy.
Caring for Your SureSmile Aligners
Traditional metal braces can require specialized care with specific tools, but SureSmile in Eagan requires minimal maintenance. Your regular life will not be interrupted due to your orthodontic treatment. Care is as simple as removing your aligners and gently cleaning them with a toothbrush. Make sure to brush them gently, so they don't get scratched, and rinse them in warm water—hot water can warp them. You should clean your aligners every time you brush your teeth.
Save Yourself Multiple Trips to the Dentist
We love seeing all our patients, but we understand that they have busy lives. Metal braces traditionally require many visits to the dentist office, but SureSmile requires fewer visits—so you can spend time doing the things you want while you improve your smile.
