Indirect bonding is a method of applying brackets for braces to the teeth in such a manner that an entire set of braces can be applied, including expanders, in less than an hour.
Indirect bonding is a technique in which molds of the teeth are made, and most of the work for the braces is done in the lab. It is an amazing process that depends on our ability to make particularly accurate models of your teeth. Much detail goes into the accurate measurement and alignment of the model, since your mouth is naturally unique to you.
The brackets for the braces are placed on the models of the teeth, exactly in the right place, fitted into the trays made on the model, and sealed and cured.
Setting your braces
When you come to our office to have your braces fitted, the trays, made from your own teeth models, have been completed with the braces built into them. All that remains is a quick sitting to fit the trays onto your teeth, align them, and separate the braces from the trays.
