At LA Cosmetic Braces, we are pleased to offer clear braces for our clients who would like to straighten their teeth discreetly. These braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, but they have tooth-colored or clear brackets which blend in naturally with your teeth.

Like their traditional counterparts, clear braces work by gradually and gently shifting your teeth into position to create a beautiful, aligned smile. With our clear braces to straighten your pearly whites, you don’t have to worry about “metal mouth”. In addition, our clear braces are discreet and comfortable to wear.

Caring for your clear braces is just as important as maintaining your teeth and gums, even more so because you are wearing braces which can make it harder to clean your teeth. This means brushing your teeth and flossing every day. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to avoid damaging the wires and brackets. If you are prone to cavities, consider using a fluoride toothpaste, and always use products that carry the American Dental Association (ADA) Seal of Acceptance. This way, you are receiving the quality care you deserve, as these products have been tested for both safety and effectiveness.

Brushing after every meal will help keep food from lingering in your teeth and braces and discouraging plaque buildup. Following up with flossing will remove any stuck food particles in your braces or between your pearly whites. Just be sure to floss gently, so as not to loosen the wires or brackets. Thread the floss carefully and clean slowly.

If you currently have smile problems that might benefit from wearing braces, please give our LA Cosmetic Braces team a call to learn more, or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Sid Molayem in Beverly Hills and Encino, California. We can be reached at 310-278-9101 today. We look forward to helping you achieve the beautiful smile you deserve!
