Our Orthodontic Treatments and Services
At McKeefry Dental we offer the full range of cosmetic and general dentistry services. To complement our extensive range of cosmetic dental treatments, we offer a wide range of orthodontic services.
Our our focus is always on providing the latest in cosmetic and general dental services. Our orthodontic services are just one of our many options for providing a smile makeover, with your requirements and concerns top of mind.
Full One-Stop-Shop Service
Being a general dentist as well as providing teeth alignment services (usually only available through an orthodontist) means that our Wellington based practice can truly be a one stop shop. With us, you don’t have to go to the dentist for check-ups and then the orthodontist for braces.
At our modern and centrally located Wellington practice, we provide it all in one place. This also facilitates excellent communication and care by the dentist – checking the straightness, checking for tooth decay, and helping the patient to clean around the braces.
This full service is now a new level of service offering in dentistry. As an orthodontist, we wouldn’t be able to check patients’ teeth for decay, do any dental fillings, remove any teeth, provide cosmetic dental veneers and crowns, or undertake root canals etc…
As stated by Angela, “I choose to be a general dentist rather than an orthodontist so that I can do more aspects of dentistry that I love.”

Our practice offers one of the latest and leading orthodontic tools. With the Progressive system, we provide a fully customised treatment plan, tailored to meet your specific requirements. And, with the Progressive programme (which uses an enhanced archwire technique), treatment can be at least 6 months faster than with traditional straight archwire appliance treatments. Most importantly, our teeth coloured braces option offer a truly discrete choice for many adults not wanting to draw attention to their treatment regime.

Short Term Braces
This new and leading technique can provide a significantly shorter treatment plan for many standard teeth alignment and teeth straightening conditions. Our short term braces ideal for many adults, particularly when the alternative involves cutting down the teeth for veneers.
Invisalign® Clear Aligners
Invisalign® uses a series of clear aligners that are custom-molded to fit you. The virtually invisible aligners gradually reposition your teeth into a smile you’ll be proud of.
An Invisalign® orthodontic treatment involves wearing a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every fortnight. Each one of the aligners is individually manufactured and fitted to your teeth. As you move on to each new aligner, your teeth will move until they reach the final position as prescribed by your dentist.
The appeal of Invisalign® is: the aligners are clear, so you don’t have to feel self-conscious about your teeth while you’re receiving treatment; they are customised, so they are individually fitted to your teeth in a treatment plan that is specially written for you; they are removable, so you don’t have to worry about food getting caught in metal braces, or about cleaning; and they are comfortable to wear, so you can wear them nearly all day.
