Ready to Disney-fy your mouth? Take orthodontics to a magical level with new Disney braces!
The Walt Disney Company has been putting smiles on our faces for decades… but they are about to take it to a whole new world. New Disney braces feature Mickey head-shaped brackets for your teeth and character-themed elastic accessories to elevate your treatments.
Get Your Disney Braces with WildSmiles
Disney is now partnering with WildSmiles Braces, an innovative supplier of unique bracket shapes. Orthodontic clients can now have “the chance to align their smiles with a touch of magic.” Launching today, November 18th, 2020, the new Disney collection features brackets in the shape of the iconic Mickey Mouse ears.
The themed brackets adhere to your teeth in the traditional way and do not cause any extra pain due to shaped edges. The shapes are flush and don’t stick out. The wire holding channels guide the wire and patients can then “Disneybound” with colored elastics evoking their favorite characters. Picture the Mickey head bracket, paired with red, black, and yellow elastics!
“As an innovator in orthodontic treatment, we are thrilled to collaborate with Disney,” said WildSmiles founder Clarke Stevens, DDS, MS. “Mickey Mouse is a beloved character that inspires creativity and has always had a way of spreading ear-to-ear smiles for generations. That animated spirit reinforces the new fun perspective we have brought to orthodontic correction through the WildSmiles brand.”
The full Disney Collection also includes colored elastics featuring other popular Disney characters, such as Dory from Finding Nemo and Olaf from Frozen. WildSmiles’ original collection comes in six shaped brackets, including hearts, stars, college mascots, and now the main mouse himself.
“The quality of a traditional orthodontic treatment plan doesn’t change with WildSmiles,” said Dallas orthodontist and WildSmiles provider Dr. Michael Ragan of Ragan Orthodontics, “We understand that sometimes kids and teens view braces as another hard part of growing up and may not consider them fun. But with WildSmiles, patients are able to feel confident in their smile and are excited about the orthodontic experience when they’re able to pick shapes that reflect their favorite team or passion.”
I personally would have LOVED to use these WildSmiles Disney braces. Having had braces twice in my life, I loved to use my braces in my costumes (think Darla from Finding Nemo!) and even commissioned personalized retainers with Alice in Wonderland embedded in them.
As an adult with braces, I had tons of pushback on my decision, but knew I was making the choice for myself. I made my braces my own, leaning in hard to the treatment, and the result was worth it. If I had been able to have Mickey head shaped brackets, I would have absolutely sprung for them as a self-professed Disnerd!
WildSmiles’ patented designs give patients a unique and fun experience to express personality and creativity through their smiles. Mixing and matching charming shapes, fierce college logos, and new magical Disney brackets help turn orthodontic correction into expression. Founder and orthodontist Dr. Clarke Stevens developed WildSmiles in 2002 after being inspired by a patient wearing a heart-shaped necklace. Since then, the designer braces company has been showcased at New York Fashion Week and gives back to aspiring orthodontists by providing students with scholarships for their education. More than 2,000 orthodontists nationwide have offered WildSmiles since the company’s inception in 2002. Patients can find their nearest provider at www.wildsmilesbraces.com.
