We’re really excited to offer our Bakersfield patients this fantastic service! While we do offer traditional braces, we also offer a less conventional—and in our opinion, superior—method of correcting teeth. This method is clear braces and aligners.
That’s right, they’re clear, which means you can straighten your smile without everyone noticing the metal wires on your teeth. We particularly love this feature because it allows you to get the healthy smile you need and deserve while you still get to flaunt your pearly whites to everyone you see.
With SureSmile® clear aligners, you don’t have to worry about clunky wires blocking your smile at any point during your treatment!
What Are SureSmile Clear Aligners?
SureSmile clear aligners are a newer treatment used to straighten teeth. While the treatment works similarly to traditional braces, the SureSmile system uses clear trays instead of wires, brackets, and bands.
The size and shape of these invisible braces change over a period of time, making the process a gradual teeth-straightening treatment that is comfortable. You won’t have to get brackets cinched tighter every six weeks. Instead, you’ll just put in a new aligner that is slightly different from the last one. By the end, your last set of aligners will push your teeth into fully straightened positions.
The Latest Technology for Precise Results
In order to create custom-made trays for each patient, the staff at McCullough Dental will take digital images of your teeth. These images guide the design of a straightening program that works for your needs.
At McCullough Dental, we offer SureSmile clear aligners in order to help anyone get their dream smile—no matter their age, schedule, or specific needs and desires. For us, it’s about you, your health, and the aesthetics of your smile.
Advantages of Invisible Braces
Clear braces offer precision and superior technology have many practical advantages that lead to happy patients, no matter their age or lifestyle. Here are a few examples:
- Invisible: The clear aligners are virtually unnoticeable compared to metal braces.
- Comfort: The SureSmile system uses smooth aligners, without brackets and wires that poke the lips, cheeks, and gums. They are easy to slip on and off of your teeth, and they don’t interfere with your speech, which can sometimes happen with traditional braces.
- Short Treatment Time: SureSmile aligners are designed to work fast. Clear braces can shorten the time metal braces would take to do the same amount of work.
- Aesthetics: SureSmile clear braces are so clear that most people won’t even notice them! We can help you get your straight teeth and make them look good while it’s happening.
- Oral Hygiene: SureSmile aligner trays are easily removed for brushing, flossing, and rinsing. Because they’re removable, food doesn’t get stuck between brackets. There’s no need to struggle with brushing around metal wires and brackets.
- Best Menu: SureSmile trays can (and should) also be removed for eating and drinking, which allows you to enjoy all your favorite foods the way you always have. Traditional braces, on the other hand, often limit the foods you can eat.
