Though your child’s dentist may be able to identify many developmental irregularities, Dr. Dunlevy is a specialist whose primary training and focus revolves around the identification and correction of crooked teeth and misaligned jaw structures. Our office offers patients and their families orthodontic support, allowing us to address the unique dental needs of your child. Through a shared commitment to our patients, our team aims to deliver quality orthodontic care on the Outer Banks.
Orthodontic treatment can provide your child with a healthy bite and beautiful smile. Braces offer better oral health; reduce injury to prominent teeth that stick out; improve coordination of jaw growth and tooth development; and can also increase one’s self-esteem and confidence in their smile. Orthodontic treatment can also help in the correction of some habits such as thumb sucking, and assist in preventing cavities. We specialize in both ceramic and metal braces and will develop a plan of treatment specific to your child’s individual needs. We utilize the latest technology to provide the smile your child deserves!
The clear alternative to traditional braces! We proudly offer Invisalign and Invisalign Teen to our orthodontic patients. These nearly invisible aligners are removable and allow your child to feel confident about his or her smile every day. Invisalign uses a series of custom-made retainers called aligners to gradually straighten teeth. Underbites, overcrowding, and gaps between teeth are all things that can be corrected with Invisalign. Invisalign aligners are completely clear, smooth, and removable. This means no irritation from metal braces, no off-limits foods, and no discomfort or self-consciousness!
We know that receiving orthodontic treatment as an adult may not be ideal, but you don’t have to feel uncomfortable or embarrassed about your smile! We utilize current and discreet orthodontic techniques to help you achieve a perfect smile, regardless of your age. More and more adults are taking steps to straighten their teeth and fix existing or new oral issues. We can help provide a better bite; space out crowded teeth; or close off gaps in your smile. We offer both Invisalign and traditional braces to our adult patients. It’s time to feel good about your smile- contact us today to book an appointment!
