Dental misalignment can detract from the beauty of your smile and eventually lead to concerns like decay and tooth loss.

Orthodontics can correct dental misalignment over time, but you may desire something more comfortable and discreet than braces.

Canyon Rim Dental in Salt Lake City, UT, creates customized treatment plans using SureSmile aligners to address your unique concerns.

SureSmile vs. Invisalign

Our dentist knows there are other clear aligner systems out there, like Invisalign®. While both systems are a comfortable and discreet alternative to braces, we use SureSmile at our Salt Lake City office because it offers some advantages. Here's how SureSmile and Invisalign compare:

SureSmile Invisalign
Cost $4,695-$5,400 with us $3,000-$8,000
Length of Treatment 6-18 months 12-18 months
Comfort Level The edges of the aligners are trimmed with lasers, resulting in a polished, precise, and comfortable fit. While Invisalign is a more comfortable orthodontic solution than traditional braces, the aligners may have sharp edges.
Case Complexity SureSmile can treat some complex cases like large gaps and severe bite problems. Invisalign typically only treats mild-to-moderate cases of dental misalignment.

You will first meet with Dr. Delahunty at our Salt Lake City, UT, office, where he will determine your candidacy for this orthodontic appliance. He will examine your mouth, inquire about your dental history, and ask you about your goals before deciding if clear aligners are right for you.

Digital Scans

Your dentist will take scans of your teeth and gums that will be used when developing your treatment plan.

Digital Lab

Your scans will be sent to the SureSmile digital lab, where your customized, removable aligners will be created. It usually takes about 2-4 weeks until patients receive their first set of clear aligners.

SureSmile Treatment

Return to our Salt Lake City office where you will receive your aligners. Wear each set of aligners 20-22 hours each day for two weeks or as instructed by your dentist. Be sure to check in periodically with your dentist so he can make sure your treatment plan is progressing as it should.


At the end of your treatment, you will be provided with a SureSmile retainer that will keep your teeth in place. Be sure to wear it as instructed by your dentist; improper use can result in your teeth shifting back into their misaligned positions.

Caring for Your Aligners and Maintaining the Health of Your Teeth

Clean Your Aligners Regularly

Be sure to clean your aligners twice a day with mild soap and a soft-bristle toothbrush. This is typically done at the same time patients brush their teeth. Rinse your aligners every time you take them out to remove bacteria. Use cold or lukewarm water to avoid warping the aligners.

Brush and Floss Your Teeth

Throughout your treatment, be sure to brush and floss your teeth twice each day. This can help ensure your teeth stay healthy enough to support your SureSmile aligners. We also recommend brushing your teeth or using mouthwash after each meal to remove food debris before reinserting your aligners.

Putting aligner into case

Store Your Aligners Properly

You should wear your aligners for 20-22 hours each day, and be sure to store them in their case when not in use. Improperly storing your aligners can result in damage to the appliance and the need for new aligners, prolonging your treatment time and increasing the cost.

Paying for SureSmile

Dentist and patient

SureSmile aligners cost from $4,695 to $5,400 at our office in Salt Lake City. We are out-of-network with all insurance companies, so we don't have to limit our care to meet their requirements. Fortunately, we work with many insurances and can submit a claim for reimbursement on your behalf, so you may be able to apply your benefits to our services. Our staff is happy to check beforehand to let you know what your benefits will cover. We can provide you with an estimate and explore any specials that may apply.

Dr Sam Delahunty is the BEST DENTIST I'VE ever been to. Some of the experiences from my younger day have left me with Dental Anxiety! Sam always takes the time to explain what's going on and makes the procedure pain free! I would refer him any time or any place! That man has SKILL'S and he is a GREAT asset to our community!
