We can help you to achieve the smile you have always wanted
At Smile Central, our focus is on creating beautiful smiles that 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 talk you through your different treatment options 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, as well as orthodontics, are performed under the one roof. This means less visits to different locations and the whole family can come in for their routine dental check ups too! Our orthodontic patients have the advantage of seeing our Oral Health Therapist for regular cleans and hygiene support along the way. This means you can have confidence in knowing that your dental health outside of orthodontics is being closely monitored too.
We provide full range of orthodontic treatment options for children and teenagers, not only traditional braces. There are many other early intervention dental appliances and strategies that we consider when assessing orthodontic needs in a developing mouth.
Crowded teeth, misaligned bites and breathing through the mouth instead of the nose are all common factors that affect facial development in growing children. Read more about the factors which can affect facial development in childhood and adolescence Correcting these types of issues early on can improve not only the appearance of a child’s smile, but more importantly the positioning of the teeth and jaws for better function and longevity.

It is never too late to achieve the smile you have always wanted – and with modern technology, adult orthodontics has become more discrete than ever before! 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 & grinding)
All of these things we can help to address with you before, during and after your orthodontic treatment with us.
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 1 on 1 consultations, Dr Chris Lauf will walk you through exactly what to expect from your adult orthodontic treatment with the assistance of our modern technology.
