At Dan Smethurst Orthodontist, we stay up-to-date with the latest orthodontic techniques and technologies to provide the best experience for our patients. That’s why we are so excited to offer a revolutionary new option for our patients: LightForce™ 3D braces.
What are LightForce™ braces?
As the world’s first 3D-printed bracket system, LightForce™ braces are a groundbreaking advancement in orthodontics. These cutting-edge braces offer us a level of customisation never seen before in treatment with fixed braces.
With LightForce™ braces, Dr Smethurst can control every aspect of your orthodontic treatment, including the size, placement, and colour of each individual bracket. This ensures that your treatment is as discreet, comfortable, and efficient as possible.
How do LightForce™ braces work?
LightForce™ braces work just like traditional braces, except each bracket is tailored to suit your unique smile. During your first consultation, we will use our 3D scanner to create a digital model of your smile. Dr Smethurst will design your custom brackets and treatment plan based on this model.
After we fit you with your bespoke brackets, you will visit our practice for regular adjustment appointments. Because LightForce™ braces offer superior precision, they require fewer in-person appointments than conventional braces.
Benefits of LightForce™ braces
Many of our patients enjoy LightForce™ braces because they are:
- Convenient: Because LightForce™ braces are tailored to your exact smile, they require fewer commutes to our practice for adjustments.
- Discreet: LightForce™ 3D brackets are smaller than traditional metal brackets, and can be customised to match the colour of your natural teeth.
- Accurate: Your treatment will be planned from start to finish with computer precision, and the custom placement of your brackets will ensure the most efficient and exacting results possible.
- Affordable: With our competitive costs and flexible, interest-free payment plans, it’s easy to straighten your smile with LightForce™ braces.
- Versatile: LightForce™ braces can treat even complex orthodontic issues in patients of all ages.
