Delve into our range of specialized treatments designed for precision and excellence. Whether you need stylish enhancements or structural corrections, each procedure aims to provide you with the best possible outcomes for your smile.


Composite Pontics & Build-Ups

Composite pontics and build-ups are innovative solutions for patients needing minor dental repairs alongside orthodontic treatments. These procedures involve using composite material to create a natural-looking tooth structure, which helps in achieving a uniform smile during and after your orthodontic care.

Ideal for patients with missing teeth or those who require additional dental support, this approach not only improves aesthetics but also ensures functional balance across your teeth.

Our team at McDermott Orthodontics meticulously matches the composite material to your existing tooth color, making sure that the pontics blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. This method is quick, efficient, and leaves you with a smile that feels as good as it looks.

Gum Sculpting

Gum sculpting, or gingival contouring, is a cosmetic procedure that reshapes the gum line to enhance the appearance of your smile.

It’s perfect for those who feel their gums are too high or too low, making their teeth appear off-balance. Dr. McDermott uses precise laser technology to sculpt your gums, revealing a more symmetrical and appealing smile.

This painless procedure can significantly transform your smile aesthetics without the need for invasive surgery. Most patients find the recovery quick and the results immediate, making it a popular choice for a quick smile boost.


Tooth Sculpting

Tooth sculpting, also known as enameloplasty, involves modifying the size, shape, or surface of one’s teeth to improve their appearance. This treatment can correct minor imperfections such as slight overlaps or unusually shaped teeth, contributing to a more perfect smile.

At McDermott Orthodontics, tooth sculpting is done with meticulous care to preserve your tooth's health while enhancing its appearance. It’s often combined with other treatments for comprehensive results, ensuring your smile is both beautiful and healthy.

“Aqua-Wire” Bonded Wires

Our "Aqua-Wire" bonded wires are designed for quick adjustments and retreats in orthodontic treatments. These specially formulated wires are bonded directly to the teeth, making adjustments faster and more comfortable for the patient.

The Aqua-Wire technology allows Dr. McDermott to make precise corrections with minimal appointments, speeding up the treatment process while maintaining comfort. It's an excellent option for patients who require minor corrections to their existing orthodontic work.


TADs (Temporary Anchorage Devices)

Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs) are small titanium screws used in orthodontics to provide a fixed point from which to apply force to move teeth. TADs can be used in various cases, from closing gaps to adjusting severely misaligned teeth, and they are removed once the desired movement is achieved.

Their use allows Dr. McDermott to achieve precise tooth movement that would otherwise be impossible with traditional braces alone. This cutting-edge technology enhances the efficiency of your treatment, reducing overall time and improving outcomes.
