2. Records Appointment

  • 3D scan of the mouth and teeth with iTero 3D scanner
  • Finalize financial arrangement, complete contract and consent forms

Note: If you require an appliance or the extraction of teeth in addition to your braces or Invisalign, there may be additional steps before the bonding.

3. Bonding Appointment
