The SureSmile® Process

What is the SureSmile Process?

SureSmile precision braces are designed for you with advanced technology to move your teeth more precisely than ever before. After your SureSmile wire is inserted, you'll be on your way to a beautiful, healthy smile sooner than you thought possible.

Step one: Advanced Imaging

SureSmile creates a 3-D computer model of your bite by using advanced imaging technology to scan your teeth. The 3-D image can be captured with the OraScanner® or Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT). The scan procedure is the beginning of your SureSmile treatment.

Step two: Prescriptive Planning

With the 3-D model, the doctor can now see your teeth from any angle and how they fit together. SureSmile Treatment Planning software provides virtual simulation tools that allow your doctor to determine the final position of your teeth and the most effective plan for your unique treatment needs.

Step three: Robotic Accuracy

Once your treatment plan is determined, SureSmile directs a robot to bend a shape memory alloy archwire according to your doctor's prescription. This wire is designed to deliver gentle forces needed to move your teeth consistently and more directly to their desired finishing position.

  • Conebeam Computed Tomography scans allow your doctor to better analyze the orientation and position of your teeth and roots by showing the detail between different tissue types such as bone, teeth, nerves and soft tissue.
  • SureSmile software provides virtual simulations for your doctor to review planning options and determine your optimum treatment. The target position of each tooth is planned in advance so you'll know what outcome to expect.
  • Shape Memory Alloy archwires are made by heating Copper Ni-Ti® metal to more than 1000ºF during the robotic customization process. These "smart" wires permanently retain your individual prescription and are activated by your own body heat.

I can't think of one thing that would make my visits better or more enjoyable!” ~ May C. “Kierl Orthodontics is amazing! They have taken wonderful care of me the past year while having braces and Invisalign. They are perfectionists at their job, which is what I wanted when fixing my teeth. My teeth look perfect and I would (and already have) recommend them.” ~ Merrick F. “Dr. Kierl does great work and always takes the time to explain what's going on in my treatment, and he always checks to make sure I'm OK and that I am happy with how my treatment is going. He is extremely ethical and he really does care about people, which is hard to find nowadays.” ~ Janét J. “I would recommend Dr. Kierl to everyone, no matter the age! My treatment was very short, and I am VERY pleased with the results! I have more confidence with my smile and as a 26-year-old trying to work my way up the corporate ladder, confidence is key! Consultations are FREE! Go make an appointment today!” ~ Jaclyn S.
