At Dr. Coopersmith, Dr. Bercovici & Associates Dental Centre, our Montreal dentists are happy to help you straighten your smile with orthodontic treatments such as braces.
How Orthodontics Work
Whether we are treating a child, teenager or adult, the goal of orthodontic treatment is the same – to straighten teeth so they look better and function better.
We accomplish this goal using braces, which apply gentle pressure to your teeth to shift them into the correct position over a period of months or years.
Made of either metal or ceramic, traditional braces have been used for decades as a go-to method of straightening teeth. Recent advances in orthodontic treatment have brought us braces that meet the needs of today's discerning patients; these braces are more comfortable, low-profile and easier to care for than their predecessors.
How Braces Straighten Teeth
Braces apply continuous pressure to your teeth over a period of time, gradually moving them into their new, prescribed positions.
As pressure is applied and your teeth move, the bone will change shape to accommodate your teeth's new positions.
