Metal Braces

Metal braces are still the most popular orthodontic treatment we offer, as they're a reliable, cost-effective option for straightening teeth. Metal braces are made of high-grade stainless steel, and modern braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive than ever.

Clear Braces


Clear braces, or ceramic braces, are similar to metal braces except that brackets are made from a translucent (clear) material that blends in with teeth. This makes metal braces popular with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawbacks to ceramic brackets are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

Clear Aligners: Invisalign

For a truly discreet and convenient option, Invisalign is hard to beat. Invisalign does away with brackets and wires entirely, instead of using a series of clear overlay templates – called aligners – that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. The aligners are almost invisible when worn and easy to take out for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene. Invisalign is available to adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems, so ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system today!

Empower Self Ligating Bracket System: American Orthodontics

 Empower 2® Metal Brackets

Here at Jenuine Smiles Orthodontics, we are committed to offer the latest technology and providing our patients with treatment options designed for a beautiful, healthy smile. This advanced system is designed with comfort, and built to the highest performance technology.

With Empower 2 brackets there is no longer a need for bands or ties, this technology allows the teeth to move more freely meaning:

• You never have to have your braces tightened
• You will get fewer appointments
• Shorter office visits
• Faster treatment time.

Empower 2® Clear Self-Ligating Brackets

Many people don’t want to get the orthodontic treatment that they need because they don’t want to wear metal braces. However, you can still get the smile you deserve with the new alternatives that are available.

We offer clear braces, (Empower 2 Clear Brackets) which are a very aesthetic bracket, making them much less noticeable than metal traditional braces.

Clear braces have some advantages:

  • They are almost invisible, making them very cosmetic.
  • Ceramic brackets DO NOT get stained. (Compared to other clear plastic brackets)
  • They improve our patients’ confidence throughout the treatment.

Orthodontic treatment is the gateway to a new smile and a happier, more confident you – so what are you waiting for? We've helped countless patients throughout Torrance and the South Bay achieve gorgeous new smiles through high-quality orthodontic treatment, and we'd love to do the same for you. 

If you have questions about Invisalign® or traditional vs. self-ligating braces please contact our office at hello@jenuinesmiles.com or 310-543-2711.

I took both my children to 5 orthodontist consultations and Dr. Jen was the orthodontist we decided to go with. She is professionally, kind, passionate about helping her patients, knowledgeable on all the latest in the orthodontist world, and overall a wonderful human. When you become a patient with Dr. Jen, everyone in the office knows your name and treats you like you matter. You're not just another number/patient to them. You won't feel like it's a factory office that just does work without even looking at the patients or knowing their name. This is the place to go for honest, passionate, and quality care.

I contacted Jenuine Smiles Orthodontics as I was looking to replace my old metal & plastic retainer with an Invisalign retainer. Not only was I shocked with how quickly I was able to make an appointment, but I couldn't get over how easy and great the entire process was. I was able have my teeth scanned and picked up my retainer the same day. The entire staff was so friendly from the initial contact all the way to me leaving their office. They ensured they answered all of my questions and address any concerns before I left. I highly recommend Jenuine Smiles for any and all orthodontics needs! If I could give a higher rating I would :)
