Dr. Newman and her team are trained and certified to provide orthodontic treatments using SureSmile® clear aligners, and other orthodontic services for children, teens, and adults. We can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted through a care plan tailored to your needs.
Straight teeth and an aligned bite are not just for cosmetic purposes. It helps prevent crowding and closes the gap between teeth, both of which can increase the risk of tooth decay, gum disease and trauma to the teeth. An aligned bite helps improve speech, chewing, and increase a patient’s confidence to socialize and interact.
At Lakeview Dental Centre, we understand the physical and emotional impact that a straight smile can have on our patients along with the benefits of a good bite that preserve your teeth for a lifetime. We’re here to help you achieve that.
A beautiful set of straight teeth can be achieved at any age, regardless of your current oral health conditions. Your customized treatment plan works towards straightening your teeth and aligning the bite.
Children as young as 5 can receive orthodontic treatments that focus on early intervention. We take a proactive approach and identify issues early, including crowded teeth, gaps, bite issues, jaw structure, and teeth development. Orthodontic treatments for teens and adults focus on correcting the bite and improving teeth alignment, enhancing overall facial aesthetics.
SureSmile® treatments are the latest in clear aligners, a more discrete alternative to traditional wire braces. When compared to Invisalign, SureSmile® offers the following benefits:
SureSmile® clear aligners are made of a strong plastic material that is custom-made to fit a patient’s mouth. Much like traditional braces, they use a gradual force to guide teeth into their proper position.
Typically, several aligners are used over the course of treatment, each with differing force than the last. Each aligner is worn for at least 20 hours a day for at least 2 weeks before switching to the next aligner. Depending on the severity of the case, SureSmile® aligner treatments can take between 3 months to 1.5 years.
When you contact our team at Lakeview Dental Centre, we will schedule an initial consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for clear aligners. During this appointment, we get to know your goals and why you want or need orthodontic treatment. Dr. Newman will take the time to assess your oral health and will complete an X-ray.
Even if you are not a candidate for orthodontic treatments, we will work with you to create a treatment plan that will give you the best possible outcome. This can include restoration treatments, teeth replacement procedures, or cosmetic services. Whatever your goal, Dr. Newman can help you achieve the smile you desire with healthy teeth and gums for life.
