Crooked teeth can detract from the beauty of your smile and lead to oral health issues.

SureSmile® is an orthodontic treatment plan that uses clear aligners to shift teeth into their ideal positions without metal braces.

Brooklyn Heights Dental® serving Brooklyn Heights, NY, can provide you with this comfortable and simplified orthodontic solution.

SureSmile vs. Invisalign

You may already be familiar with Invisalign® and wondering how SureSmile compares. SureSmile and Invisalign are similar orthodontic treatments, but they have three main differences:

SureSmile Invisalign
Average Treatment Time Straightens teeth in an average of six months, though treatment timelines can be longer for complex cases. The average length of treatment is 12 months, but treatment can last anywhere from 9-18 months.
Case Complexity Some complex cases like large gaps and severe bite problems can be corrected. Most commonly used for mild to moderate cases, but can be designed for some complex needs.
Cost The average is around $4,000. Anywhere from $3,500-$8,500, depending on treatment time and case complexity.

Qualifying for This Orthodontic Treatment

Patients who qualify for treatment with SureSmile include those who:

  • Have one or more of the dental concerns SureSmile can address
  • Are committed to treatment and wearing their aligners for 20-22 hours a day
  • Want a more comfortable treatment option than traditional braces

The SureSmile Process

When patients want SureSmile, they have to consult a SureSmile provider. We have undergone the necessary training to be able to offer this service so patients don't need to make a special trip to see an orthodontist. When you come to us to develop your treatment plan, you can expect these steps:
You can be well on your way to a more beautiful smile shortly after contacting our office.
You can be well on your way to a more beautiful smile shortly after contacting our office.


One of our Brooklyn dentists will meet with you to discuss your dental concerns, review your medical and dental histories, and examine your teeth and bite. If our dentist determines that you're a good fit for SureSmile, you will move on to the next step.


Your dentist will take digital scans of your teeth that will be used to plan the best way to move each tooth into its ideal position.

Digital Lab

Your impressions will be sent to the SureSmile Digital Lab where technicians will create your treatment plan and design your customized aligners.


About every two weeks, you will start wearing the next aligners in your prescribed series. Be sure to wear them as directed and attend all appointments with our dentists so we can ensure your orthodontic treatment is proceeding as planned.


Once your treatment is complete, you will be provided with a SureSmile retainer that you must wear as instructed to ensure your teeth remain in their new positions. SureSmile retainers are unique because they are designed to withstand teeth grinding, so you can protect your teeth while keeping them aligned.

Paying for Your SureSmile Aligners

Because having straight teeth can help prevent decay, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, and other serious oral health issues, many insurance companies will contribute to the cost of orthodontic treatment. Our office serving Brooklyn, NY, and beyond accepts most insurances, offers flexible financing options, and allows patients who qualify to pay for part of their treatment with a flexible spending account (FSA).

Brooklyn Heights Dental® makes paying for dental care easy. At this time, we accept all major credit cards, cash, checks, and other forms of payment.

When to See an Orthodontist

Not everyone is a candidate for clear aligner systems like SureSmile and Invisalign. If you have severe misalignment, our dentists can refer you to a trusted orthodontist in the Brooklyn area who can provide orthodontic treatment with braces.

Braces use brackets and wires to straighten even the most severe cases of misalignment. Though clear aligners are less noticeable, the field of orthodontics has come a long way and options like clear brackets and tooth-colored wires are more accessible than ever.

Your orthodontist can help you explore orthodontics and determine which solution will best fit your budget, concerns, and lifestyle.
