Orthodontics and Teeth Straightening

Crooked or misaligned teeth are more than just a cosmetic issue. When your teeth are improperly positioned, it can make them harder to keep clean, put extra stress on your jaw joint and cause other oral health issues. Orthodontics uses dental devices to shift your teeth into the correct position for a straight, healthy smile. At Laguna West Dental Care, we offer discreet, quick orthodontic solutions to help our patients achieve a healthy, beautiful smile.

Metal braces were once the only option for straightening teeth. The “train tracks” with bands and wires slowly shifted teeth into place over two or more years of treatment. Braces are effective, but they are very noticeable and require eating restrictions to prevent damage to the devices. While braces are still used for orthodontic treatment, they are no longer the only option. Orthodontic aligners have become very popular, offering a discreet and convenient way to straighten teeth without metal braces.

Teeth Straightening with Aligners

Teeth Straightening with Aligners


If you have crooked, gapped or misaligned teeth that need straightening, we have discreet orthodontic treatments available at Laguna West Dental Care. Clear aligners work similarly to braces, shifting teeth into place over several months or longer. Our patients enjoy the freedom of aligners over braces. They can eat the foods they love and perform their oral hygiene by removing the aligners. Plus, they are almost invisible when in place. We offer a few different orthodontic options, including:

Teens and adults can have a straight, healthy smile with our orthodontic treatment options at Laguna West Dental Care.

Suzanne B.

As I was walking to my car after my appointment I thought, I sure am happy I come here. I get warm friendly service and gentle, thorough care throughout my visit. Dr. Chan and his staff are the best.

Jennifer B.

We've been so very happy with Dr. You and his staff since we moved to Sacramento in 1985! We've followed him to the current location in Laguna...he and his staff take such good care of all our dental needs. I have no hesitation in recommending their services!

Stephanie O.

In my 65 years on the planet, and hundreds of hours in former dentists' offices, Dr. You and his staff are by far the best I've ever encountered. My very recent crown replacement was 100 percent pain free! All phases of treatment, from removal of the old crown, mold taking and making, to the permanent placement with my brand new well-matched molar, was seamless. I respect and applaud Laguna West Dental Care for taking such talented care of me.

Janet S.

Since retiring, I drive and hour and a half each way to continue to see Dr. You and his entire staff ... and I hate to drive. No better dentist and hygenists in Sacramento and I have tried others over the years. Thank you for a great experience each and every time Laguna West!

Norman H.

In my 50+ years, I've probably had 7 to 8 dentists and have had my share of bad experiences that made me fearful of going to the dentist. But, after switching to Dr. Chan in 1991, I really couldn't be happier and don't dread dental appointments anymore. Dr. Chan is gentle and exceptionally good at giving shots that I can barely feel. He even calls me in the evening after every procedure to make sure I'm doing okay. The staff is friendly and caring and the facilities are nice. Highly recommended.

Carol D.

We've been patients of Dr. You and Dr. Chan since my son was in kindergarten - now a County employee. Everyone on the staff is great. I had one bad experience with a dentist referred by my insurance co. - I'd NEVER see a dentist again without a personal referral. Consider this mine to you -- Laguna West is an excellent choice!
