Bracesless braces straighten teeth in Long Beach.

Not only can braces improve your personal appearance and boost self-confidence, but they can promote better overall oral health. Are you looking for the best orthodontist in Long Beach, CA? Dr. Lam Vuong of Funtastic Orthodontics is the absolute best orthodontist in town. He’s in the business of making crooked smiles straight with Braces and Invisalign.

Clear braces: If your child is self-conscious about wearing metal braces (or being called “metal mouth” in school), then clear braces might be the perfect solution. They are much less noticeable than standard braces.

Ceramic braces: Ceramic braces are typically clear or white to blend better with your teeth and are less noticeable than other types of braces. Some even use clear or white wires that also blend with teeth better and make them less visible. Ceramic braces are typically more expensive, but they also move teeth faster than Invisalign.

Lingual braces offer a unique solution for children and adults who need traditional braces but who don’t want the appearance of metal braces when they speak or smile. The orthodontist places lingual braces, including brackets and wires, on the backs of the teeth where they are far less noticeable to wearers and others. Lingual braces, however, are difficult to clean and maintain, cost more and move teeth less efficiently than traditional braces. Wearers also report that lingual braces are more uncomfortable than other types and more difficult for the orthodontist to adjust.

These are less noticeable than the standard braces most adults remember simply because they are smaller and lighter and less obtrusive.
