SureSmile Orthodontic Technology
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 a lot more precise and more accurate compared to conventional orthodontic treatment. It’s called SureSmile, and it’s changing the way people feel about braces.
SureSmile reinvents orthodontic treatment
Unlike 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 Dr. Chung to plan individual tooth movements throughout your entire “braces experience.” SureSmile robots then customize 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, Dr. Chung 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!

Shorter Treatment Times
You’ve probably heard from friends or family that wearing braces is a long-term commitment that takes more than two years on average. With SureSmile orthodontic treatment, getting braces isn’t what it used to be. You’ll get outstanding results in less time with SureSmile technology.
Fewer Office Visits
With SureSmile, patients spend less time in treatment and make fewer visits to the orthodontist. The custom SureSmile archwire provides smoother movement for a more comfortable experience than traditional braces. And since you return to a normal oral hygiene routine more quickly, maintaining healthy teeth and gums is easier.
Less Overall Discomfort
Anyone who has worn braces will probably tell you that wire adjustments and changes were their least favorite part of the process due to discomfort. Fortunately, the SureSmile system is engineered to maximize therapeutic efficiency of each wire, which significantly reduces the number of adjustments needed. This means fewer episodes of discomfort over the course of your treatment.
Instead of the doctor bending archwires by hand, a SureSmile wire is custom-shaped by a robot. When the wire is inserted, each tooth moves directly to the prescribed position. It’s this precise movement that enables such great results within a shorter treatment time.
