We are proud to be the first in Richmond to offer this newest innovation in orthodontics.
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.
The Lightforce Advantage
Lightforce Orthodontics cuts down on overall treatment time.
A fully customized prescription means each bracket fits perfectly.
No more impressions! Scans of teeth create the prescription for the teeth.
