Everyone has a unique smile, and the way in which they smile says a lot about them. Your smile is one of the first things a person will notice when you first meet them.

When it comes to improving smiles, Dr. Tsai can offer a wide range of cosmetic options and solutions, including clear braces in Pasadena.
Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dental practice that involves the appearance of teeth. There is often some overlap with restorative dentistry, but like other aspects of dental care, cosmetic procedures can also have a medical benefit. This is often the case when correcting crooked teeth. Crooked teeth, misaligned bites or malocclusions can all appear like cosmetic concerns, but they can actually affect the health and effectiveness of your bite as well as increase your risk for tooth decay and gum disease because of difficulties in cleaning. In order to straighten crooked teeth of any variety, braces are employed to realign teeth and make the smile straighter overall. Here at the offices of James W. Tsai, DDS, we can also offer alternatives, like clear braces in Pasadena. Clear braces use plastic trays, often called aligners, instead of noticeable brackets and wires. The plastic is clear, and is virtually invisible when placed over your teeth. Like traditional braces, clear braces gently move your teeth over time until they are in a straighter and healthier formation.
James W. Tsai, DDS can provide you with the preliminary exam you’ll need to find out exactly what method of care will be best for straightening your teeth. You may just find out that you’re eligible for clear braces in Pasadena.
