Braces at Dan Smethurst Orthodontist
The benefits of straight teeth are countless; our oral health, well-being, and confidence. At Dan Smethurst Orthodontics, we offer different types of braces that are designed to transform any smile and help you and your family achieve each one of these benefits.
Each treatment plan that we develop is uniquely tailored to suit your needs. We carefully consider your smile goals, objectives, and lifestyle to recommend the very best orthodontic treatment option for you.
Traditional metal braces
Traditional metal braces have been used to straighten teeth for decades. These braces consist of small metal brackets which are fitted to the front of your teeth with a wire running between them. The wires are held in place by small elastic bands.
Metal braces are a very effective treatment option and are suitable for use in many orthodontic circumstances. Although they have been around for some time, orthodontic technology has advanced these metal braces to be much more discreet and comfortable to wear.
Clear braces work in the same way as metal braces, however, they are made from virtually invisible ceramic for a more subtle look. Our patients love clear braces when they want to benefit from the reputation associated with traditional braces but are worried about how they will look on their smiles.
Whether you have a major or minor orthodontic case, clear braces can really help to transform your smile.
Invisalign® is well known and highly regarded as the most effective way to invisibly straighten your teeth. The treatment uses a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth gradually, without metal wires or brackets. At Dan Smethurst Orthodontist, we provide Invisalign® treatment to patients of all ages in Tauranga and The Bay of Plenty. We have achieved Diamond Invisalign® Provider status, showing that we really are experts in the practice.
At Dan Smethurst Orthodontist, adults can opt for faster treatment. With accelerated orthodontics, we can improve your smile without altering the way your teeth bite together, in as little as 6 to 12 months.
In addition to smile makeovers, the maintenance of healthy teeth and gums has never been more important. With the help of a Dentist or Gum Specialist, adult orthodontics can help improve areas of periodontal disease (gum disease) by improving the alignment of the teeth and the level of the jaw bone.
We take a modern approach to orthodontics, ensuring our patients have great teeth for life.
