We can help you to achieve the smile you have always wanted
At Smile Central, our focus is on creating beautiful smiles that will last a lifetime. For over 15 years, Dr Chris Lauf has been providing comprehensive orthodontic care to his patients, specialising in both children and adult orthodontics. The team at Smile Central are highly experienced and will take the time to discuss the different treatment options available to you to come up with a plan that best suits you and your individual needs.
At Smile Central, we offer the following orthodontic treatments:
- Early intervention appliances
- Traditional metal braces
- Ceramic braces
- Clear aligners
The benefit of visiting Smile Central, particularly if you are considering orthodontics for your child, is that all routine dentistry including orthodontics are performed under the one roof. Our orthodontic patients have the advantage of visiting our Oral Health Therapist for regular cleans and hygiene support before, throughout and after their treatment, and seeing our dentist for an exam after each clean!
We provide full range of orthodontic treatment options for children and teenagers, not only traditional braces. There are many early intervention dental appliances and strategies that we consider when assessing orthodontic needs in a developing mouth.
Crowded teeth, misaligned bites and mouth breathing are all common factors which affect facial development in children.

It is never too late to achieve your dream smile – and with modern technology, adult orthodontics has become more discrete than ever. While many adults are attracted to orthodontics due to the cosmetic results, there are many other health benefits to having straight teeth too! Having an aligned smile makes day to day cleaning easier, improves gum health, balances chewing forces more evenly across all teeth, prevents uneven wearing down of front teeth and can even close spaces of missing or previously removed teeth. In many cases, people who require or desire adult orthodontics also have to consider other things relating to their teeth such as:
- Missing teeth
- Gum disease
- Broken down or worn through teeth (due to misaligned bite)
- Sleep breathing disorders (snoring, sleep apnoea, clenching and grinding)
All of these things we can help to address with you before, during and after your orthodontic treatment.
We understand that adult orthodontics is an empowering process for people and together with careful planning, work to comprehensively achieve the goals you desire. The initial evaluation and consultation process is detailed in every way, we utilise 3D Face Scan imaging radiography (CBCT Scan) to formulate, measure, predict and plan for the most favourable outcomes. It is important to us that you are and feel involved in this process and through one on one consultations, Dr Chris Lauf will walk you through exactly what to expect from your adult orthodontic treatment with the assistance of our modern technology.
