Braces. Reinvented.

For patients who don’t like the appearance of traditional braces but also may not be the best candidate for removable aligners like Invisalign, Dr. Kim is proud to offer InBrace lingual (hidden behind the teeth) braces as part of the treatment suite at LA Smile Co. Orthodontics!


InBrace combines the effectiveness of conventional braces with the aesthetics of traditional lingual braces and the comfort of aligners. Customized pre-formed “smartwires” are made to fit the smile of each patient – guaranteeing highly individualized and faster orthodontic treatment with less discomfort.

Additionally, InBrace has the smallest lingual brackets available, which makes cleaning them during your treatment significantly easier than other lingual treatment brands.

Actually Invisible

With nothing attached to the front of your teeth, enjoy the benefits of your improving smile with InBrace without anyone noticing, even up close. Don’t hide behind the bars of traditional metal braces or the glistening plastic and permanent attachments of ‘clear’ aligners. Take that selfie with pride!

Shorter Treatment Time

InBrace’s smartwires are customized to fit your teeth and mouth – minimizing tooth movement required to achieve your smile. This efficiency can reduce treatment time by months (years in some cases).

Less Discomfort

InBrace uses patented self-driving Gentleforce technology to guide your teeth to their ideal position. This means fewer discomfort events – no more painful tightenings and no more forcing your teeth into a plastic mold every two weeks.

Better Hygiene and No Stains!

With InBrace, it is easy to keep your teeth clean and healthy with your daily hygiene routine. The wires don’t go across the teeth as in traditional braces, so you can easily floss between them like normal! Clear aligners can trap liquids like coffee, tea, wine and soda which can lead to staining and tooth decay. Traditional braces require special tools to floss. Eat, drink and floss with ease with your invisible braces!

Getting InBrace is as easy as 1-2-3

  1. Schedule a consultation with INBRACE orthodontist Dr. Kim.
  2. Next, Dr. Kim will take a Toothprint – a 3D image of the inside of your mouth, often at the same initial appointment.
  3. About 4 weeks later, return to LA Smile Co. Orthodontics for the fitting of your customized, precision InBrace Smartwire, and your journey to a better smile begins with treatment that is completely hidden!
