Orthodontic Treatment In Georgetown & South Austin

During your first appointment with Dr. Bernuy, you will meet the entire team and discuss your condition and ultimate smile goals. We’ll learn more about you and customize your orthodontic treatment based upon the condition of your teeth and what will best fit your needs.

We usually schedule appointments every six to eight weeks, allowing us to monitor the progress of your treatment and correct any issues. These check-up appointments typically only take about 20 minutes.

Depending on the severity of your dental imperfections and compliance with treatment, the duration of treatment can vary. The average treatment time can vary between one to two years, following instructions can help ensure you finish on-time or even early.
