Damon Braces

Damon braces are an innovative fixed brace treatment, which use pioneering technology to straighten the teeth and produce amazing smiles. Damon braces use friction-free technology to straighten the teeth quickly and painlessly.

How do Damon braces work?

Damon braces use friction-free technology and self-ligating memory wires to gently move teeth as quickly as possible. The brackets use a sliding mechanism and the braces are much finer and lighter than traditional fixed braces. There is no need for elastic or metal bands, which makes treatment more comfortable.

What are the benefits?

Damon braces have many benefits:

  • Speed: Damon braces work faster than traditional fixed braces; typically, treatment time is around 4-6 months shorter.
  • Comfort: Damon braces use friction-free technology to move the teeth painlessly.
  • Aesthetics: Damon braces improve facial aesthetics, as well as the look of the smile.
  • Versatility: Damon braces are suitable for a wide range of orthodontic prescriptions, including complex cases.
  • No need for extraction: in most cases, there is no need for tooth extraction prior to treatment.

Stages of treatment

Stage 1: During the consultation, one of our dentists will examine your mouth to check that you are a suitable candidate for Damon braces. They will also answer any questions you have and talk to you about the treatment, how it works, how long it takes and the cost of treatment.

Stage 2: A Damon braces dentist will create impressions of your mouth and photograph your teeth. The information will then be sent to the laboratory and the braces will be made and then returned to us.
