Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on aligning the teeth and jaws to improve the look and health of the smile. At Dr. Yeh and Associates, our talented team performs orthodontic screenings and offers clear aligner therapy for those that qualify.
While many seek orthodontic treatment for a better-looking smile, straightening the teeth comes with many health benefits, including:
For convenience and care for our patients, Dr. Yeh and Associates offers the SureSmile® system for in-house orthodontic treatment. SureSmile is an orthodontic treatment that gradually straightens teeth without the bulky brackets and wires required for traditional metal braces. Instead, the SureSmile system straightens teeth by wearing a series of clear, custom-fit, removable aligners.
Sometimes called “invisible braces” or “clear braces,” clear aligners are a technological advancement that has made orthodontic treatment less noticeable while moving teeth and aligning jaws to create a healthy, beautiful smile.
Before starting orthodontic treatment, it’s essential to understand your current alignment and where our phenomenal team can take it. If you’re looking for orthodontic treatment in Verona, Bloomfield, or surrounding areas, look no further.

SureSmile aligners are worn for two weeks before you switch to a new set of aligners, though this can vary. This is the typical wear time for most invisible braces and clear aligners. It’s possible that if your dentist decides that you aren’t ready to move on to your next aligner during one of your monthly check-ins, you’ll need to continue wearing your current set for a bit longer. Still, it won’t be much longer, as these aligners aren’t designed to withstand continued wear.
While both orthodontic treatments can effectively straighten teeth, the SureSmile system boasts certain advantages over metal braces. Many patients prefer SureSmile clear aligners because they are less noticeable, removable, and convenient.
