Smiling Hills Dental
Michael Alano, DDS


Having perfectly aligned teeth gives you confidence about your appearance, allows you to enjoy better oral health, and promotes a comfortable smile! At Smiling Hills Dental, we are proud to offer orthodontic treatment here in our Chino Hills dental office.

Dr. Michael Alano has the training and experience to provide patients of all ages with outstanding results using modern orthodontics.

Health and Appearance Benefits of Braces

Orthodontics offer many benefits when it comes to improving how you look. We can improve:

  • Overlapping teeth
  • Misplaced teeth
  • Diastema (a gap in your smile)
  • Overcrowding
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite

By correcting the alignment of your teeth, you can have greater confidence when you smile – something everyone loves to see!

You may not realize that the alignment of your teeth plays a role in your oral health, as well. 

  • Overcrowded and overlapping teeth are more prone to decay. 
  • Misalignment can lead to issues with your bite that eventually cause jaw joint pain.
  • Having crooked teeth can make it difficult to effectively restore damage.

Traditional Orthodontics

Traditional orthodontics are still one of the best ways to move your teeth effectively. Dr. Alano will take x-rays, impressions, and digital pictures so he can create a treatment plan that will provide great results.

We will attach brackets to your teeth and use an orthodontic wire to guide their movement. Traditional orthodontics work well for almost any orthodontic condition – for people of all ages!

Invisalign Clear Braces

If you are an older teen or adult and you would like a more discreet treatment option, many cosmetic and mild to moderate orthodontic conditions allow us to offer Invisalign clear braces as an alternative to traditional brackets and wires. 

Invisalign uses clear aligner trays to gradually move your teeth into alignment. You can remove them to clean your teeth and eat, making them an extremely convenient option!

Early Interceptive Orthodontics

We welcome patients of all ages to our dental practice. We invite your children, as well! When you bring your little one to our office for dental care, we will evaluate their bite and development from an early age.

We keep an eye out for signs of growth challenges such as:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Overcrowding
  • Jaw development issues

We can use early interceptive orthodontics to address the issue while your child is still growing. This allows us to provide excellent results without extractions, and it may reduce treatment time later.

Adult Cosmetic Orthodontics

It’s never too late to have the smile you always wanted! We welcome our adult patients to schedule an orthodontic evaluation. Perhaps, as you have gotten older, you want to change how you look or address alignment issues for greater comfort. Either way, we can help!
