Clear Aligners in Portland

Are you seeking a confident, comfortable and discreet path to a flawless smile? SureSmile® Clear Aligners may be the answer.


SureSmile technology means superior comfort and beautiful results. A straight, healthy smile is in your future — all from your family dentist at South Waterfront Portland.


SureSmile Basics: What You Need to Know


SureSmile Clear Aligners are designed to address simple dental misalignment issues like crossbites and overbites, crooked teeth and small gaps. 


Each aligner is custom-made to fit comfortably. They are crafted from clear, high-quality plastic material, making them inconspicuous and comfortable.


One of the key features of SureSmile Aligners is precise 3-D imaging technology. This advanced imaging allows Dr. Beck to plan and attain alignment with a high degree of accuracy. 


These aligners are a discreet and comfortable option for individuals seeking orthodontic treatment, as they’re virtually invisible when worn. They can address a variety of dental issues, such as crooked teeth, spacing issues and mild bite problems.


SureSmile Aligners offer an attractive and convenient alternative to traditional braces.


Benefits of SureSmile Aligners


Supreme Comfort: Free from the discomfort of metal brackets and wires, you don’t have to worry about poking, pinching, broken brackets or loose wires. You might forget you’re wearing anything at all.


Live Your Normal Life: SureSmile Aligners are removable, so you can live your life without restrictions. No restricted foods or drinks. Brush and floss normally. Smile big in pictures, with or without your aligners in.


Invisible Transformation: Enjoy the discretion of clear aligners that seamlessly blend with your natural smile. These aligners are nearly invisible from a distance, allowing you to undergo orthodontic treatment with confidence.


Fewer Office Visits: SureSmile Clear Aligners don’t require as many dental visits as traditional metal braces. Every once in a while, you’ll trade out your aligners for a new pair. Your South Portland dentist will check in occasionally to make sure that your teeth are aligning according to plan. 


Real-Life Success: Not only is the process easy, but the results are fantastic, too. Straightening out your smile can boost your confidence and quality of life. 


How SureSmile Clear Aligners Work


Your journey to a perfect smile begins with a consultation with Dr. Beck in our South Waterfront dental office. During this initial appointment, we’ll assess your specific dental needs and create a customized treatment plan tailored to you. You’ll know what to expect throughout the entire treatment process.


Once your treatment plan is established, you'll receive a series of clear aligners. These aligners are designed to gently and gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions. You'll wear them for about 20 to 22 hours per day, changing to new aligners every few weeks as your teeth progress. At the end of your treatment, you’ll get a final set of clear aligners. This last set serves as a retainer, ensuring that your newly aligned teeth stay in place.




What are clear aligners? SureSmile Clear Aligners, also known as invisible aligners, are tight-fitting, custom-made mouthpieces crafted from durable plastic using 3-D imaging technology. They seamlessly blend with your smile.


Can anyone get clear aligners? Clear aligners are ideal for teens and adults with mild to moderate dental issues, such as crowded teeth or minor spacing problems. Other cases may require alternative treatment options.


How do they work? Clear aligners gently and effectively reposition your teeth. You'll wear them for about 20 to 22 hours per day, ensuring constant progress. New aligners are introduced every few weeks as your teeth shift, and a final set of aligners acts as a retainer to maintain your results.


How long does treatment take? Treatment duration varies based on your specific needs. Typically, treatment with clear aligners takes 9 to 18 months.


How much do they cost? Depending on the length of your treatment and potential insurance coverage, the cost typically ranges from $3,500 to $4,900. Contact our office for detailed pricing information or to schedule a consultation.
