What we Believe
We believe that Life is about the people we meet and the happiness we share. We are passionate about people and so we accumulate relationships (not things!). We laugh often and smile more. Research even shows that smiling can make you happy. And happiness is contagious, in a good way. Life is short. Live your dream. Do what you love. For us, that just happens to be Orthodontics.
Your little ones should be screened by an Orthodontic specialist around age 7 for developmental problems in the jaws and permanent teeth. Some problems are simply easier to correct and better for your child when treated early. Options at our Claremont Orthodontist and Sierra Madre Orthodontist locations include expanders, growth modification, and braces.
Early adolescence is the perfect time to start comprehensive orthodontic treatment. At Little Crown Orthodontics, we believe in helping our patients build self-confidence. Our Claremont braces and Sierra Madre braces treatments include clear braces and metal braces. Our Claremont Invisalign Teen® and Sierra Madre Invisalign Teen® treatments help them achieve a confident smile without all the metal!
Our adults deserve an amazing smile too! Whether your teeth shifted after childhood braces or you’re ready for a full smile makeover, our team is here to help. Little Crown Orthodontics’ adult Invisalign® treatment and adult braces utilizing clear braces are much more esthetic. Other Little Crown Orthodontics adult patients are treated with active aligners and retainers.
As your Claremont Orthodontist, Sierra Madre Orthodontist, and South Pasadena Orthodontist, our team here at Little Crown has been bringing beautiful smiles to the greater Los Angeles area for years. We are proud to offer premiere orthodontic treatment to these 3 locations, for your convenience.
