Orthodontics in Waynesboro, VA
Part of having a beautiful smile is having a smile that is properly aligned. Not only does alignment affect your appearance, it also affects how your teeth function. Where orthodontics is concerned, comfort and beauty must go hand-in-hand for treatment to be a success!
Dr. Steve Browning is a general dentist with extensive orthodontic experience. He worked for six years in an orthodontic practice before relocating to the valley and joining Browning & Cunningham Family Dentistry. His skills and expertise bring convenient orthodontic treatment options to our Waynesboro, VA dental office.
Traditional orthodontics uses brackets and wires to move your teeth over time. It is still the most effective method of treatment for complex orthodontic cases that affect your bite, comfort, and jaw health.
We will adjust your wires periodically to gradually move your teeth and correct common problems such as overbite, underbite, crossbite, gaps, overlapping, or unevenly spaced teeth.
The cost and length of your treatment depends on the complexity of your treatment. We can improve the appearance and comfort for patients of all ages with traditional orthodontics.
Invisalign and ClearCorrect Clear Aligners
For older teens and adults wishing to improve the appearance of their smiles or who suffer from minor misalignment issues such as overlapping teeth, gaps, or teeth that appear out of place, Invisalign and ClearCorrect provide you with discreet and effective treatment options.
With both Invisalign and ClearCorrect, you will wear clear plastic aligner trays and change them out approximately every two weeks. Each tray will bring you closer to your ideal smile without the hassle of brackets and wires.
Because you can remove your aligner trays to eat, brush, and floss your teeth, you will experience unsurpassed convenience during your treatment. They are also smooth and comfortable, so you will not need orthodontic wax to protect your delicate tissue.
The cost and length of treatment will depend on your orthodontic needs. An evaluation with Dr. Browning can determine if clear aligners are right for you.
Powerprox Six Month Braces

By using a clear memory wire and brackets, your teeth will gradually move into a more aesthetic position. Because Powerprox uses constant low force pressure and treats only the teeth that you want to move, treatment occurs in about six months, on average.
Because you will not have traditional “tightening” appointments, many of our patients find Powerprox more comfortable as well. Shorter treatment times mean that treatment may even be less expensive than traditional orthodontics.
Having the smile you have always wanted may only be six months away!
