While children are often already accustomed to the idea of wearing braces due to the friends they see at school, adults and self-conscious teenagers often feel like they’ve missed their chance to have a beautifully straight smile. After all, you’ve worked hard to create a polished image that you feel proud of, and the last thing you want to do is suffer through years of wearing metal braces that make you feel like you’re back in junior high.

Made of high-grade stainless steel, this is the most common type we offer. While traditional braces may be too noticeable for our more professional-minded patients, others prefer their durability. In fact, today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable, and much more attractive than the ones you may remember seeing your friends wearing in school.
This option is crafted from a material that’s nearly clear, resulting in a more natural appearance, which is ideal for adults in many cases. However, they are more fragile and can cause discoloration of the enamel.
With a significantly shorter treatment time and a more comfortable feel, many patients can’t get enough of this revolutionary new orthodontic system at our Cerritos office! It also tends to allow wearers to practice better oral hygiene than more traditional systems, which is a definite plus!
One of the most revolutionary orthodontic options on the market today, Invisalign is a big hit with patients who want their treatment to be as natural and seamless as possible. The process is simple enough – we’ll provide you with a series of clear, customized aligners. Each one represents a different stage that your teeth need to move through to reach their ideal alignment. All you need to do is wear each of them for a predetermined amount of time before switching to the next one in the set, as well as attend brief check-ups at Bloomfield Dental Center so that our team can ensure that you’re progressing smoothly. Like its name suggests, Invisalign is practically seamless, easily removable (no frustrating changes to your oral hygiene routine or diet required), and only requires 12-18 months to perfect your smile, which a significant improvement over the multiple years traditional methods can take. We also offer Invisalign Teen!
