Associate Professor (Dr) Peter Vaughan is a Newcastle specialist orthodontist who has been straightening teeth in the Hunter Valley community for the past 30 years.

A specialist orthodontist is someone who has completed a Master’s degree in Orthodontics, and then practices exclusively in orthodontics – attaining a level of expertise and experience that vastly exceeds a general practitioner. A comparison could be the skills of a specialist surgeon, compared to your family GP. This means that we are able to offer far more qualified and experienced treatment than any Newcastle dentist for clear aligners in Newcastle.

Invisalign

Associate Professor Vaughan has been recognised as going even above and beyond this level, and was appointed Associate Professor of Orthodontics at James Cook University – where he teaches other dentists how to perform orthodontic treatments.

Invisalign is a style of 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! You can also take them out entirely for special occasions, and most people will not notice you’re wearing them. They can be used to treat minor crowding or aligning problems in as little as 3 to 9 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, Associate Professor (Dr) Peter Vaughan is highly vocal about the benefits a straight smile brings – increased confidence and happiness, and healthier teeth. He does not think that straight teeth should be limited to those only who can afford it.

Because of this, our fees at Live Life Smiling to have specialist orthodontic treatment is often cheaper than our general dentist counterparts. We know the benefits that treatment can bring, and we want to share these with our Newcastle community. We also provide NO DEPOSIT and NO INTEREST payment plans for all our patients, allowing us to find a solution that fits your needs.
