Indirect Bonding

Save time and discomfort with indirect bonding

You may have heard that getting your orthodontic braces on takes a long time, is uncomfortable and/or requires you to hold your mouth open for long periods. This is not the case with indirect bonding.

Indirect bonding is an advanced technique that allows Dr. Chris Cusimano to place your brackets – all at once – in a fraction of the time it takes to place the brackets on your teeth individually. The procedure is not only easier for patients but allows greater accuracy of bracket placement. That allows teeth straightening progress to occur more quickly. Your overall orthodontic treatment will take less time.
