Retainers for Life!

When you finish your orthodontic treatment with Smiles by the Bay, you’ll get two full sets of retainers, plus the 3-D print so we can make you a new one if you ever need it.


You deserve to love your smile for life!

Once your orthodontic treatment is complete, and you have the smile you’ve always wanted, you want to keep it that way! Wearing your retainer as prescribed by your orthodontist will help your teeth and bite stay just as they should be.

But what happens if you lose your retainer?

Life happens. That’s why at Smiles by the Bay, all of our patients get retainers for life! We give you 2 full sets of upper lower retainers, as well as the 3-D print files. So if you happen to lose BOTH sets, we will be able to re-make your retainer — no questions asked.

Be sure to contact us as soon as possible after losing your retainer.

“Do I Really Need to Wear a Retainer?”

Yes. Teeth aren’t set rigidly in the jawbone. So after they have been moved, it takes several months for the periodontal ligament to adjust to the new position. If you want to keep that new smile — and not waste all the time, effort, and money it took to get it — it’s essential to wear your retainer as directed.
