Affordable Orthodontics in Miami

At Lakes Orthodontics, it is our mission to provide you with affordable, high-quality treatment that fits your budget! The cost of braces is in many instances the biggest obstacle people face when considering whether or not to seek orthodontic treatment. For this reason, we offer a wide variety of payment options, which allow us to help our patients meet their financial needs. Please ask us about financing options, credit card payments, and bank drafts. We thoroughly explain your options, so that we can accommodate your needs.

Lakes Orthodontics believes that financial considerations should not be an obstacle to your beautiful smile. At your initial examination, our treatment coordinator will discuss in detail the specific cost of orthodontic treatment. Due to the variety of patients needs and treatment options, the cost of orthodontic care varies from patient to patient. Being sensitive to the financial aspect of treatment, our practice:

  • Applies discounts for teachers, firefighters, police officers, military, as well as for full payment at the start of treatment or for additional family members undergoing orthodontic treatment with Dr. Briceño Crespi
  • Accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express
  • Offers in-house payment options with no finance or interest charges. With this option, an initial payment is due at the start of treatment with the balance paid in monthly installments extending over the treatment time.
  • Provides outside financing through Care Credit which offers plans with no down payment and no interest payments for up to 24 months.
  • If you have orthodontic coverage in your dental insurance, it may help in reducing your out-of-pocket expenses for orthodontic treatment. Most orthodontic insurance benefits have a lifetime maximum amount that is separate from regular dental insurance. Please bring your insurance information with you to your first complimentary visit and we will be happy to verify your coverage.

Faster Better Invisalign Results

Orthodontist in Coral Gables, Fl. For most people, going to the orthodontist is not considered as dreadful as going to the dentist.  However, if you ask kids, teens, and adults what is one thing you hate about going to the orthodontist and they will almost unanimously say “dental impressions!”

For most people, going to the orthodontist is not considered as dreadful as going to the dentist.  However, if you ask kids, teens, and adults what is one thing you hate about going to the orthodontist and they will almost unanimously say “dental impressions!”

Dental Impression – is the procedure by which a putty-like clay compound is deposited in a device called a tray. The tray is then placed in your mouth, and once you bite down on it, a negative imprint of your dental arch is created. From this imprint, a positive reproduction can be cast. Dental impressions are used throughout the dental industry quite frequently. Their most common application include the creation of mouth guards, whitening trays, retainers, crowns, bridges, veneers, dentures, and dental models, among other things. Although better technology now exists, many dentists insist on using them because they are cheap and easy to use even if they don’t provide the best patient experience.

At Lakes Orthodontics, we opt not to use “old school” dental impressions. We find them to be an antiquated technology dating back the 1800’s, they are not as accurate as digital impressions, and for sure not a favorite with patients. Because of this, we have invested in an iTero, Intraoral Scanner by Align Technology, Inc.

The iTero, Intraoral Scanner is a revolutionary high precision, digital, dental scanning device developed to improve not only the time it takes to fit braces and Invisalign but also its accuracy. With the iTero, Intraoral Scanner Invisalign ClinCheck (modeling procedure) setups are 50% faster, there are 10X fewer rejections, 7X fewer fit issues and more important to us a better patient experience. Not only that but at Lakes Orthodontics we can actually show you an image of how their teeth may look after Invisalign treatment!

There are many reasons why families and individuals from Aventura to Doral, from Pembroke Pines to Miami Gardens and Hialeah chose Lakes Orthodontics for their braces and Invisalign! Our iTero digital dental scanning technology is just one of them!
