When it comes to orthodontics, it’s more than just straightening teeth. It’s facial growth, function and your overall appearance. Everybody cares about their smile—we’ve only got one! Not only does a straight smile enhance your health and appearance, it also improves self-esteem and confidence. That’s why orthodontics is a worthwhile investment in your physical, dental and emotional health.
Our friendly team uses traditional ceramic or metal braces. Typically, you’ll need to wear braces from 18 months to 2 years. We’ll even let you choose a different colour for your metal braces at each monthly adjustment visit.
To discuss metal braces with our dentists, call us today to book a consultation.
Invisalign is the newer, invisible alternative to traditional metal braces. It’s a popular choice with both teenagers and adults. The Invisalign treatment involves straightening teeth using sequential aligners. These aligners, which look like plastic trays, can be removed by the patient, but must be worn at least 22 hours a day in order to be effective. We perform adjustments every 2 weeks.

Our consultations are complimentary for your convenience. Speak to us at Dental at Atune today to discuss the best treatment for you.
Frequently Asked Questions
Typically, you’ll have to wear braces anywhere between 18 months to 2 years. Each patient is different, so speak with your dentist to discuss further.
It’s best for children to receive braces between 10 and 14 years. This is when a child’s head and mouth are still growing, meaning the teeth are more conducive to straightening. However, adults can still receive braces also.
Braces do not hurt when they are applied to the teeth. You may experience mild discomfort or soreness in the days/week after, but each patient is different.
Typically, the top braces are applied first, then the bottom ones a few months later. This is because usually the bottom teeth are straightened quicker.
