WildSmiles Braces Accessory A New Trend For Teens

MIAMI (CBS4)- There's already bling for the teeth, but now there's a new trend that's becoming all the rage with teens. It's called WildSmiles.

Peri Zambrano, 8, and her 13-year-old sister Delaney Zambrano are adding a touch of bling in a way that is quite alright with their parents.

"I really like them they're really cool," Peri Zambrano said. "They're really cool shapes."

WildSmiles is the latest craze in braces. With the product consumers get to select their brackets, the metal that is attached to the teeth from various shapes, including hearts, football, stars and more.

As an aspiring performer, Peri Zambrano chose stars.

"I want to be a singer," she said.

Delaney Zambrano said she once had red for her volleyball team. Then she had orange and black for Halloween.

The product work like normal braces Delaney Zambrano had a crooked under-bite before. Now she and her sister are among the first in the Miami area to don the trendy new teeth correctors.

Notably, their father, orthodontist Dr. Jaime Zambrano, offers WildSmiles at his practice.

"It's popular, they weren't excited about braces until Wild Smiles," he said.

According to the sisters the look is super cool, and really fun.

"I would say a lot, a lot, a lot better than normal braces," Peri Zambrano said.

The good news for parents is that the Wild Smiles cost the same as regular braces. That's an average of about 4,500 to 4,800 in Coral Gables.
