Custom Braces

Lightforce Orthodontics

We are proud to be the first in Richmond to offer this newest innovation in orthodontics.

About Lightforce

The future is digital customization. Gone are the days of using a one-size-fits-all approach to orthodontics. Lightforce is a breakthrough. Their 3D printing technology allows Dr. Bates to create a fully-customized bracket from the slot (where the wire fits in) to the base (the area that bonds to the tooth). This individualized patient prescription produces better results faster.
