Indirect Bonding Procedure

Step 1:
We create a model of your teeth, resulting in a 3-D image that can be studied to determine the ideal position and angle of the required bracket placement
Step 2:
Brackets will be placed on the model. The brackets are then covered with a soft and flexible tray material and “cured” so that they adhere to the tray.
Step 3:
When you arrive to have your braces placed, your teeth will be cleaned and prepared. Then, a special bonding solution will be applied to each bracket.
Step 4:
After that, it’s simply a matter of fitting the tray on your teeth! Perfectly placed brackets, every time!
