Our office offers payment plans for remaining balances and you can discuss what monthly payment you are comfortable with that fits into your budget. Once you see how affordable your ideal smile can be you won’t want to wait another minute to get started!
Are you a candidate?
SureSmile aligners can be used to treat the majority of common orthodontic issues for teens and adults. They effectively treat mild cases, such as crowding and gaps, as well as more difficult corrections like overbite, underbite, crossbite and openbite.
Most SureSmile doctors can use aligners in all or part of almost any treatment plan, depending on the severity of your specific case. The best way to determine if you are a candidate is to schedule an appointment with Doctor Zive. The doctor will present you with various treatment options and explain the differences, so that together you can make an informed decision on the best course of treatment to bring to life your ideal smile.

MTM® Clear•Aligner is surprisingly affordable, achieving results at a fraction of the time and cost of many other aligner or bracket treatments, including clear braces and invisible braces.

Properly aligned teeth contribute to maintaining healthy gums, and can help prevent more serious health problems from arising. Misaligned teeth can lead to stress on the jaw muscles and excessive wear of the enamel, negatively affecting the long-term health of the teeth and their supporting bone structure. Crowded or gapped teeth can be difficult to care for and can lead to periodontal disease with associated gum and bone loss and in some cases, the possible loss of one or more teeth.
Achieving your ideal smile is an investment in you!
