There’s nothing quite like the confidence that comes from having a beautiful, straight smile. Many people in Kelowna believe that achieving the perfect smile can only be done with years of uncomfortable, unsightly metal braces, but this simply isn’t true.
Dr. Kevin Andersen of New Look Dental is proud to offer adult patients Six Month Smiles®, an effective alternative to traditional braces. Using clear braces to gently straighten and align teeth, the average time most people wear braces is just six months.
