We treat children, teens and adults!

Because we believe that each patient is unique, we offer a variety of treatment options to meet your specific needs when it comes to orthodontic treatment. Each of the following options have their own benefits and advantages. If you have any questions about the treatments below, Dr. Nee will be happy to answer all of your questions at the initial consultation.

Metal Braces

Today’s newer technology has made having braces more comfortable than ever! We only offer low profile and esthetic options for braces. In addition, technology has allowed for shorter treatment times while still achieving the same, amazing results!

Ceramic/Clear Braces

Some patients prefer not to deal with the hassle of clear aligners and Invisalign, having to take the trays in and out. We offer an esthetic braces option with our ceramic Clarity braces. These work very similar to traditional metal braces, but are much less noticeable.

Spark Clear Aligners

In addition to Invisalign, we offer SPARK, the most recent, technologically advanced, clear aligner system on the market.

Unlike other aligner brands, Spark is only available to orthodontists; this means your treatment will be in the hands of an expert in their field.

Since they are made here, in Southern California, the turnaround time for your custom created aligner set is faster than ever.

Compared to other aligner brands, Spark is:
More Comfortable
Stain Resistant


Invisalign is an innovative approach to straightening teeth! You can form a beautiful smile without the hassle of braces.

Using advanced 3D computer-imaging, Dr. Nee will create a digital model of your teeth. With this information, she will be able to make a customized plan to begin your treatment. It is a process using a series of clear aligners custom-made just for you. You will wear each aligner for 7-14 days, as directed by Dr. Nee. With each new aligner, the teeth are gradually shifted into a straight position. Once the treatment is complete, you will have just as beautiful a smile as one made with braces.

With Invisalign, you:
  • Wear your aligners about 22 hours a day
  • Remove them to eat meals and snacks
  • Brush and floss normally
  • Hide your treatment instead of your smile

Inbrace (Lingual / Hidden Braces)

InBrace is a convenient new treatment that straightens your teeth from the inside. The Smartwire is applied to the back of your teeth making it invisible to the rest of the world. With InBrace, there’s nothing to hide so you can enjoy your smile from day one.


Regardless of which orthodontic treatment type you select, retainers will be needed as part of maintaining your lifelong dream smile.

For this reason, a set of clear retainers are given to each patient when they complete treatment; this is included in the overall treatment cost.

Additionally, because retainers are required to maintain your smile, we offer a “Retainers For Life” program.

The key to lasting results is continuous use. Without wearing a retainer, the teeth can shift over time, even after wearing a retainer for a long period. That’s why we have implemented our “Retainers For Life” program.

Here at Happier Smiles Orthodontics, our program allows you to keep that beautiful smile forever, all at an affordable price.

The first step of the program is to obtain a digital scan of the patient’s mouth. This is an ultra-accurate 3-D scan that can be stored indefinitely.

When a new retainer is needed, whether it’s lost, broken, or if you simply wish for a new set, just call our office. We’ll make you a brand new retainer – it’s that easy!!

Ask us about our lifetime retainer program at your first visit to learn more. Patients can join at any time, though we offer a discount for those that sign up at the beginning of treatment.
