Straight Smile Centre
The Straight Smile Centre are Adelaide’s orthodontic specialists. The centre has been recognised as a Blue Diamond Invisalign provider, meaning its specialist orthodontists are in the top one percent of the world for their expertise in using this virtually invisible orthodontic treatment method. Led by Dr Grant Duncan, founder of The Invisible Orthodontist, the Straight Smile Centre creates winning smiles for all.
The team at the Straight Smile Centre uses the latest in orthodontic technology to provide patients with an effective and enjoyable Invisalign treatment experience. The treatment process begins with a digital scan of a patient’s teeth, from which 3D models are created of Invisalign’s aligners. This ensures each set of aligners is custom-made for the patient, making them comfortable to wear and extremely discreet.
Other treatments available at the Straight Smile Centre include metal braces with self-ligating brackets, tooth coloured ceramic braces and Incognito lingual braces. Patients can visit one of eight clinics across Adelaide: Golden Grove, Modbury, Norwood, Glenelg, West Lakes, Warradale, Nuriootpa and Walkerville. Competitive rates and flexible payment plans make treatment affordable for every patient.
