Orthodontics for Children

Early intervention can make a world of difference for your child's smile. Dr. Lee and the American Association of Orthodontists recommend that every child around West Covina sees an orthodontist by the age of seven. Wondering why so soon? Let’s find out!

Two-Phase Treatments

About 10% of children will benefit from early intervention with two-phase treatment. This proactive approach can lead to a smooth transition to a healthy bite, avoiding potential headaches and extensive corrective care later on.

Unique Treatment

Every child's smile in West Covina is unique. Why should their orthodontic care be any different? That’s why our treatments are as unique as a fingerprint.

Dr. Lee and the team can give your child the personalized, healthy, happy smile they deserve through two-phase treatment.

Timely Assessment

Age seven is the perfect time for Dr. Lee to identify developing orthodontic issues, such as crowding, misalignment, and bite problems.

Early intervention helps us guide your child's teeth growth and development, so we can prevent issues from worsening or even developing at all in some cases.

Benefits of Orthodontics for Children

Opting for orthodontics for your child has all sorts of long-term benefits.

Better Dental Health

Since straight teeth are easier to clean and take care of, your child has less chance of developing tooth decay, gum disease, or other oral health issues.

By taking care of orthodontic issues early, we can promote good oral hygiene habits and set your child up for a healthy and happy lifetime smile.

More Self-Confidence

Every child can benefit from the feeling of confidence that comes with a beautiful straight smile.

A balanced smile empowers your child to feel confident about their appearance. This, in turn, fosters healthy social interactions and does wonders for their well-being.

Healthy Jaw Growth

Orthodontic treatment in childhood will help your child’s jaw to grow and develop properly. This helps prevent issues like malocclusion or bite problems.

By setting your child up for the jaw to grow healthily, Dr. Lee can stack the deck for your child to have better oral health and function.

Fewer Long-Term Costs

Taking proactive steps to address orthodontic concerns early can lead to serious savings in both the complexity and cost of future treatments. At Shining Smiles Orthodontics, Dr. Lee urges West Covina parents to invest in their child's smile and pave the way for a healthier and more confident future.

At Shining Smiles Orthodontics, we take pride in setting the stage for a lifetime of healthy and beautiful smiles. Our compassionate team, welcoming environment, and cutting-edge treatments mean that your child's orthodontic journey is both comfortable and enjoyable.

Orthodontics for Teens

Smiles For Teens

The teenage years are a time of excitement and self-discovery. At Shining Smiles Orthodontics, we know it’s important to have a confident smile during these transformative years.

Our orthodontic treatments for teens are specifically designed to align teeth, correct bite issues, and enhance smiles, empowering you to face the world with confidence. So, how’s it work? Let's break it down.

Personalized Assessment

Dr. Lee will conduct a thorough evaluation of your teeth, jaws, and facial structure. That way, we can identify any orthodontic issues and create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.

A Range of Treatment Options

Teens have plenty of choices at Shining Smiles Orthodontics. From traditional metal braces to discreet alternatives like ceramic braces or clear aligners, we offer solutions that cater to your lifestyle and preferences. Together, we'll select the best option to achieve your dream smile.

Straight, Harmonious Smiles

Once your treatment plan is in place, we'll begin the process of gently and gradually shifting your teeth into their ideal positions.  We'll guide your teeth into the perfect alignment, correcting misalignments or crowding for a beautifully harmonized smile.

Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment for Teens

The teen years are ideal for orthodontic treatment. That’s because their permanent teeth have come in, and their jaw is almost done growing. Your teen benefits from quality West Covina Orthodontics care in all sorts of ways:

  • Aesthetics: Orthodontic treatment will correct crooked teeth so you get a more symmetrical smile. Not only does it enhance your physical appearance, but it also gives a significant boost to your self-esteem, leaving a positive and lasting impression on everyone you meet.
  • Health: Orthodontic treatment paves the way for a lifetime of healthy and happy smiles. When your teeth are properly aligned, they‘re easier to clean and maintain, reducing the risk of gum disease like gingivitis and ensuring optimal oral health throughout your life.
  • Bite Alignment: Orthodontic treatment addresses bite issues such as overbites, underbites, and crossbites, going beyond just cosmetic improvements. A healthy bite not only enhances your facial aesthetics but also ensures your jaw functions perfectly, promoting better overall oral health.
  • Confidence: The teenage years can be filled with self-consciousness, but orthodontic treatment can be a game-changer. By straightening their teeth, teenagers experience a confidence boost, allowing them to smile freely and engage socially without any insecurities holding them back.
