Everything You Need To Know About InBrace

It’s braces, it’s Invisalign, no wait — it’s InBrace! At Shiney Smiles Orthodontics, we offer the advanced treatment option that is sure to be a hit with teens and adults alike. InBrace works like a charm to straighten your teeth on autopilot without needing plastic trays or bulky brackets and wires. It’s our totally invisible way to align your smile, and we can’t wait to tell you all about it. The modern world of orthodontics is complex, and with so many treatment options available to you, it can be difficult to keep up with them all. But don’t worry — here’s everything you need to know about InBrace. 

What is InBrace? 

InBrace is a flexible treatment option designed with comfort and discretion in mind. It calls itself the “behind the teeth, teeth-straightener,” and the name fits. Using a custom wire that is placed into brackets glued to the back of your teeth, this method gently pulls your teeth into alignment over time. Like braces, InBrace corrects your smile using a specialized SmartWire. Like Invisalign, it aligns your teeth without attracting notice. 

How does it work?

When Dr. Sheinis recommends InBrace, he scans your mouth using a 3D imaging system called a “Toothprint” — clever, huh? This image allows Shiney Smiles Orthodontics to customize your InBrace SmartWire (the name for the special technology that makes up the appliance). Once we craft your SmartWire, Dr. Sheinis applies custom positioned brackets to the back of your teeth, and the custom wire is inserted into the brackets, and voila! You can leave our office showing off your smile. All the while, it’s getting straighter by the day. 

While you’re out in the world enjoying your new grin, InBrace is working overtime. The personalized SmartWire gently guides your teeth into place without requiring brackets and wires changes or plastic aligner trays. Because the smartwire is constantly working, you can expect fewer office visits. This treatment option truly works on autopilot to give you a smile you deserve.

Why InBrace? 

With so many other orthodontic methods like metal braces, clear braces, or Invisalign, you may be wondering: why InBrace? 


What makes InBrace different from other treatments is its patented SmartWire design. The SmartWire works on autopilot to give you a smile you deserve. Methods like Invisalign or metal braces require tray changes and regular adjustments. With InBrace, once the appliance is attached to the back of your teeth, you don’t have to worry about it again until your smile is completely straight. All you’ll need to do is visit our Huntington or Woodbury office once every eight to ten weeks so Dr. Sheinis can ensure your plan is on track and you’re set.


Okay, so it’s not technically invisible, but it’s so close that it might as well be! Because your InBrace SmartWire fits behind your teeth rather than on the front, no one but you and Dr. Sheinis will know you’re being treated. This is the only treatment option of its kind that can claim it is truly hidden!

Treatment with traditional metal braces leaves your smile shiny and noticeable. Everyone knows you’re going through orthodontic treatment — not a great option for people who want to keep their treatment to themselves. Invisalign is almost invisible, but up close, you can still tell that you’re wearing the clear plastic trays. With InBrace, treatment is so unnoticeable that you can’t see it ever — even up close! 

Great for All Ages

Did you know that one in five orthodontic patients is over 18? There’s no shame in getting a later start on orthodontic treatment, but if you’re an older teen or an adult, you’re probably looking for the most convenient and attractive option for straightening your teeth. You aren’t looking for flashy metal braces, and you probably don’t find changing the color on your braces very cool anymore. That’s okay! InBrace is the mature treatment option that works for all ages to give you a smile you want. 

Improved Oral Hygiene

One of the biggest obstacles when dealing with traditional metal braces is cleaning around the brackets and wires to keep the teeth as white as they will be straight. Learning to use all the special tools to floss and brush can be nerve-wracking. When you choose InBrace from Shiney Smiles Orthodontics, you don’t have to worry about relearning how to take care of your teeth! Because the SmartWire rests on the back of your teeth, you can brush and floss like normal, meaning you have a better chance of keeping your teeth cleaner than you would with braces. 

Will InBrace work for me? 

Not all orthodontic treatment programs are designed for everyone. Fortunately, that is not the case with InBrace! InBrace hidden braces will work to correct most if not all orthodontic conditions, from mild to severe malocclusions and everything in between. InBrace works to correct spacing, crowding, and bite problems so that you can feel confident in your smile.
