Deciding What’s Right for You


When considering orthodontic treatment for yourself or your family, we understand the need to balance affordability with results. Our orthodontist, Dr. Lesley Short, aims to identify the best products for your individual circumstances. She will help you understand the dynamics of product choice: effectiveness, speed of results and price. Lesley will help you find the right solution, whether it is for you, your child or your teenager.

Our Services


The information below offers general guidance about the sorts of products we can supply at Sunshine Coast Orthodontics. If you want to discuss which options are best for you, we can schedule your appointment in Noosa.

Invisible Braces

Invisalign™ serial aligners are very popular due to their low visibility. Incognito® lingual braces are the ‘Rolls-Royce’ of braces, specially built and designed to fit on the inner side of the teeth. Fixed ceramic braces are also a popular option, and can be fitted with a less noticeable nylon wire, rather than a traditional metal wire. 

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces, technically known as fixed appliances, are still a core product in modern orthodontics. They are often a more affordable option than ‘invisible braces’ options.

Mini Implants

Mini implants consist of a tiny screw anchored in the bone. They have revolutionised orthodontic practice, because they allow us to move only the teeth we want to. Mini implants reduce the need for headgears and elastics. 

Headgear and Functional Appliances

Headgear is specialist equipment which can change jaw alignment. 

Accelerated Orthodontics

Accelerated orthodontics is one of Dr. Lesley’s specialties, and allows for orthodontic treatment to be sped up. 

Options for Teenagers


Does your teen like to stand out from the crowd? Teenagers can customize their braces with coloured elastics, or choose to go for more discreet options such as Invisalign™ or tooth-coloured braces.

Options for Children


We pride ourselves on understanding children’s orthodontic needs. As a mother, Dr. Short knows how to make your child feel at ease. Getting orthodontic help for children is surprisingly cost-effective, as well as time-efficient at normalising facial development, minimising the need for orthodontic treatment later in life.

Options for Adults


Invisible options such as Invisalign™ and Incognito® are more popular than ever with adults seeking orthodontic treatment.

Other Services


We also offer the following services:

Custom Mouthguards

Protect your teeth, which can be less expensive in the long run and reduces the risk of concussion. A definite consideration if you plan on playing rough sports following orthodontic work, as custom mouthguards can prevent tooth movement. Our mouthguards can be any colour.

Hygeniest Appointments

Helping to maintain oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment, we offer hygienist appointments to our orthodontic clients and their families. 

Teeth Whitening

Brighten up your smile with a safe and lasting whitening treatment. Available for our clients and their families.
