Orthodontics in Vernon
At Cornerstone Dental Group - Dr Rex Hawthorne and Associates, our Vernon dentists offer traditional braces, Invisalign clear aligners, and SureSmile aligners as orthodontic treatment options to help straighten your smile.
How Orthodontics Work
The goal of orthodontic treatment is the same for children, teenagers or adults – to straighten teeth so they look better and work better.
This goal is achieved using braces or clear aligners that put gentle pressure on your teeth to move them into the correct position over a period of months or years.
Traditional braces, made of either metal or ceramic, have been used for decades to straighten teeth. In recent years, advances in orthodontic treatment have resulted in braces that are low-profile, more comfortable and easier to care for.
SureSmile Clear Aligners
SureSmile clear aligners are designed using advanced software that ensure that each aligner fits your smile perfectly to deliver the exact tooth movements required to straighten your smile and achieve great results.
Invisalign Clear Aligners
With Invisalign clear aligners, your smile is gradually straightened using a series of individually customized, clear plastic aligners that are adjusted over a period of time.
Invisalign clear aligners offer a convenience factor – they are removable for when you'd prefer no one know that you are straightening your teeth.
Similar in appearance to custom whitening trays, they are easy to insert. You can even remove them to eat, drink, brush and floss!
