Key benefits - why are Damon braces better than tradition fixed, metal braces?

Effective - scientifically proven to deliver remarkable results in all age groups and all sorts of orthodontic problems, even complex dental irregularities.
Non-invasive - designed to create space naturally without teeth extractions normally necessary.
Discreet - braces are smaller than other traditional types, they actually are the smallest self-ligating bracket on the market, and if you choose to go with Damon Clear, they will be virtually invisible.
Fast - proven to produce results up to 6 months quicker than conventional methods.
Comfortable - provide greater comfort throughout the treatment thanks to the gentle forces used to move teeth and lack of tightening ties.
Safe - allow avoiding deterioration and erosion of the teeth as there is less friction than with conventional braces.
Hygienic - allow for better oral hygiene and health, as there are fewer places for plaque and bacteria to accumulate on the braces than on traditional braces with ties.
Non-invasive treatment for a fuller smile and more beautiful profile.
Traditional braces often require removal of healthy teeth in order to create space. With Damon Smile, most patients can be treated without extractions as the system uses light forces working in tandem with your body to create space naturally. Damon Smile allows for a full display of teeth creating wider natural smile and a nicer, more balanced face profile that will last as you age.
TWIN SISTER STUDY
Twin sisters with similar orthodontic issues, one was treated with extractions, one without.
Treatment with extractions leaves narrower arch and a flat profile.
A rejuvenating treatment for
a more youthful look.
Damon Smile is suitable for all ages, children, teens and adults, and delivers exceptional results for all.
For many adult patients, though the treatment goes much beyond teeth straightening.
They notice a remarkable change in their entire face. A smile becomes fuller, the cheeks contours smoother, the dark triangles in the corners of the mouth disappear and the whole face looks younger.
Some say it is almost like a face-lift. It's a bracelift!
Faster and more convenient.
Damon innovative braces and wires allow your teeth to slide more freely, faster and with fewer alterations. Research shows treatment time can be up to 6 months shorter than with traditional methods … and that means getting your perfect smile much quicker!
Damon tie-less braces are also more comfortable. They use lighter forces to move teeth and do not require elastic or metal ties that may cause the feeling of tightening.
Without elastic ties which attract and collect plaque, Damon braces are much more hygienic and easier to keep clean.
More discrete or almost invisible.
Damon Braces are much more discreet than any other traditional metal braces. They are the smallest metal braces available on the market.
Damon Clear Braces are a great option for those looking for a virtually invisible appliance. They have all the advantages of Damon Braces but are crystal clear and thus almost invisible.
"At first, I was uncomfortable with the thought of having braces at my age. But the results I saw from my Damon braces were so dramatic, I feel like I got a facelift! My friends and family say I look 10 years younger."

Is Damon Smile for me?
Damon Braces are suitable for all age groups - children, teenagers and adults.
They are proven to treat all sorts of orthodontic problems and are ideal for complex dental irregularities:
Widely spaced or gappy teeth
Protruding or 'goofy' teeth
STEP 1: Initial consultation
During your initial consultation, our specialist will chat with you about your concerns and expectations regarding your treatment.
STEP 2: Orthodontic assessment
During your first non-obligation appointment our specialist will discuss with you treatment options available and will take photos, x-rays and impressions of your teeth to determine and advise you on the treatment most suitable for your dental problem.
STEP 3: Personalised treatment plan
During your follow-up meeting, you will be presented with your personalised treatment plan including timescales, treatment costs and payment schedules. Our specialist will explain the benefits of the treatment if there are any risks and the process in general.
STEP 4: Fitting your Damon Braces
If you decide to undergo the treatment you will have your Damon braces fitted. You may feel a little discomfort for the first couple of days. However, as Damon braces use very gentle forces to move your teeth, most patients experience little to no discomfort during the treatment.
STEP 5: Monitoring results
To make sure your treatment is progressing as planned and to alter the forces needed to align your teeth, our specialist will see you every 4-6 weeks. Because Damon braces require much fewer adjustments than conventional methods, you won’t have to plan as many visits to our practice as you would with traditional braces. The treatment time can vary and will depend on the complexity of your problem. Usually, the treatment lasts between 9 and 18 months. It’s been confirmed in studies that Damon patients had treatment times more than 6 months shorter than patients with traditional metal braces.
STEP 6: Show off your perfect smile
Now that your braces are off it’s time to show your new, beautiful, confident smile to the world!
STEP 7: Maintain your beautiful smile
Damon braces create results that are designed to last, but all teeth have a tendency to try to get back to their original position. Once braces are removed it will be necessary to wear a retainer to prevent your teet from crowding up again. Retention is an important step in every orthodontic treatment as it ensures your teeth will stay in their new position, so you can enjoy your new smile for a lifetime.
