Associate Professor (Dr) Peter Vaughan is a  Specialist Orthodontist who has been straightening teeth in the Newcastle and  Hunter Region for the past 30 years.

A specialist orthodontist is someone who has completed a Master’s degree in Orthodontics at University.  While once a general dentist they now exclusively practice orthodontics – attaining a level of expertise and experience that vastly exceeds a general dentist. A comparison could be the skills of a specialist surgeon, compared to your family GP. This means that we are able to offer a more qualified opinion.

Invisalign in Black Case for Kids and Teenager in Newcastle

Invisalign is a  clear aligner, which are similar to braces in that they move teeth, but do not require brackets or wires to be glued to the teeth. They are more aesthetic, more comfortable, and can be removed to eat or brush your teeth – all great advantages! Most people will not notice you’re wearing them and you can take them out for special occasions.

Aligners are a popular treatment among adults.  They are virtually invisible meaning your treatment won’t impact on a your appearance, leaving you with renewed self-confidence.  They can be used to treat minor crowding or aligning problems in as little as 3 to 9 months, however typically it takes 12-18 months.  However, Invisalign is not suitable for all teeth or for all crowding problems. The more severe the case, typically the less suitable clear aligners are for solving the problem.

Are they expensive?

Here at Live Life Smiling, we see the benefits a straight smile brings – increased confidence and happiness, and healthier teeth. We do not think that straight teeth should be limited to those only who can afford it. Because of this, we offer payment plans, so we can tailor a solution that fits your needs.
