An attractive smile is a wonderful asset

Published 16/10/2012 | 11:01

UNHAPPY with your smile? Have your children been told they may need a brace?

An attractive smile is a wonderful asset. Straight teeth help an individual to effectively bite, chew and speak. Straight teeth contribute to healthy teeth and gums. Teeth that work better also tend to look better. An attractive smile is a pleasant "side effect" of orthodontic treatment. It contributes to selfesteem, self-confidence and self-image— important qualities at every age. A pleasing appearance is a vital component of selfconfidence. A person's self-esteem often improves as orthodontic treatment brings teeth, lips and face into proportion. In this way, orthodontic treatment can benefit social and career success, as well as improve a person's general attitude toward life. Give yourself a gift.. take the first step to a new smile..

Many different types of appliances, both fixed and removable, are used to help move teeth, retrain muscles and affect the growth of the jaws. These appliances work by placing gentle pressure on the teeth and jaws. The severity of your problem will determine which orthodontic approach is likely to be the most effective for you; a comprehensive assessment is required to determine your treatment need, cost etc.

Dr McConville treats both children and adults at the practice. Some patients may be concerned about crooked teeth or improving their smile but feel they would not like to wear conventional "braces" or 'train tracks'. We specialise in the very latest 'invisible' brace systems for all ages: the result is a stunning smile without anybody noticing you have had treatment at all.. Ideal for adults and young professionals.

Costs vary depending upon individual needs. .this will be determined on assessment.

We realize Orthodontic treatment represents a large financial investment. In fact, some people may put off getting braces for themselves or for their children because they do not think they can afford them. We understand this and therefore offer more affordable and flexible 0% financing programs that allow payments to be spread out monthly over the duration of your treatment. Our fees are competitive with northern Ireland!

Dr McConville's clinic has installed the latest in computer technology including digital imaging, photography, and electronic patient records. We are now one of the few practices in Ireland to have a CT scanner. The highly accurate imaging and measurement provided by a CT scan allows a greater level of precision when planning treatment and therefore ensures that patients are offered the most effective care possible.

We recognize that every patient is an individual having different expectations and requirements.

Our aim is to provide a personalised treatment plan in a tranquil, non dental environment.

With an ambience of calm and professionalism we aspire to make your visit an enjoyable one..
