You’re getting braces. And while you’re excited about having that great smile, you may be nervous about wearing the wires and brackets. Well, there is a new, technologically-advanced orthodontic system that makes straightening your teeth more accurate compared to conventional orthodontic treatment. SureSmile® in Edison, Millburn, and Union, NJ, is changing the way people feel about affordable braces.

SureSmile Reinvents Orthodontic Treatment

SureSmile TechnologyUnlike conventional treatment, which relies on plaster models and x-rays, the SureSmile treatment starts by providing the orthodontist with a detailed 3D computer model of your teeth, which allows our orthodontists to plan individual tooth movements throughout your entire “braces experience.” SureSmile technology then customizes individual braces archwires to match your treatment plan.

SureSmile orthodontic technology enables orthodontists to create more accurate treatment plans designed to move your teeth to their correct position more efficiently than ever, thus improving the quality of your treatment results and cutting your total time in braces by up to 29%.

SureSmile has been shown to reduce treatment time by an average of 29%, based on a March 2012 comparison of 7,042 patients treated with SureSmile versus 200 conventionally treated patients.

Average treatment time with SureSmile is 30% (or more) faster than conventional braces. (* Based on a comparison between 1,849 patients treated conventionally and 4,376 patients treated with SureSmile.)

Through the use of SureSmile technology, our orthodontists can offer you a “braces experience” that entails:

  • Shorter treatment times
  • Fewer office visits
  • Less overall discomfort
  • High-quality results

Our technology-driven orthodontic process offers several important benefits that make the whole “braces experience” much easier for patients than conventional orthodontics! Find out more info on SureSmile here!

Damon® Braces: Faster, Gentler, Precise

Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the archwire, reducing the amount of pressure exerted on your teeth. This allows your teeth to move more freely, quickly, and comfortably. Available in metal or clear, these innovative new braces make achieving your perfect smile faster and easier than you ever thought possible!

There are multiple benefits to Damon braces. Their precision and effectiveness reduce the need for many of the time-consuming and complicated procedures that are used with traditional braces. They offer great results in less time, often saving you months of treatment. They’re also more comfortable since the self-ligating brackets are smaller and allow the archwire to be adjusted more easily, and therefore the force is applied more gently. Finally, there are no unsightly or bulky rubber bands for an improved appearance.

Traditional Braces

Today’s braces are smaller, sleeker, and more polished than ever before. With metal braces, you can choose the color of your bands, and you can also change those colors at every appointment if you wish. If you’re looking for traditional braces in Edison, Millburn, and Union, NJ, turn to the experts at Smile Solutions Orthodontics who have affordable braces options.

Proven & Reliable

Traditional braces are available in metal and clear, which is more transparent and less noticeable than silvery-toned metal. While they may be seemingly antiquated compared to newer advanced treatments, traditional braces have actually made leaps and bounds technologically. Today’s braces aren’t the same as they were 25 or even 10 years ago. Ultimately, traditional braces are still a proven, reliable method for straightening your teeth and improving your orthodontic health!

Change It Up!

One cosmetic benefit loved by most of our traditional braces patients is the ability to change up their appearance at every appointment! While some pick their favorite color for their bands, others choose to represent their favorite sports team. One of our patients went with her school colors to celebrate spirit week at her school! You get the choice of using all of one color, one color for the top row and a second color for the bottom row, or even alternating colors!

Tried & True

Metal braces have been tested and retested, and they have consistent, overwhelming success. There is even evidence that braces date back as far as 300-400 BC! Of course, the style of braces we use today are far more updated, yet even they can be traced as far back as the 17th century! That is still a long time to perfect the science of orthodontics. In short, you can trust that traditional metal braces are more than adequate to do the job of straightening your or your loved one’s teeth.

Clear Braces

If you are a person who spends a lot of time posing in front of a camera or speaking to crowds, then metal braces may not be an option. Or, maybe you’d just prefer to keep your orthodontic treatment to yourself. Whatever the reason, if you need a more discreet way to straighten your teeth, we have good news! Smile Solutions Orthodontics offers clear braces in Edison, Millburn, and Union, NJ – the virtually invisible option that is hardly noticeable even up close.

Show Them Your Smile, Not Your Treatment

Discreet ceramic braces are a type of braces popular for patients who are looking for more discreet orthodontics. They are less visible than traditional metal braces. And while they are usually larger than metal braces, their color typically matches the tooth, making them a less noticeable orthodontic treatment. You can even choose tooth-colored brackets to blend in with your teeth, so they are virtually invisible.

No Worries, They Won’t Stain

Clear braces are made of a clear ceramic composite that does not stain upon eating or drinking your favorite foods. In addition, these clear ceramic braces help align teeth in a shorter period of time than plastic braces. With regular visits and proper care, ceramic braces can help you straighten your teeth and obtain that beautiful smile in less time and fewer visits!
