With the Damon System, we don't just align the teeth; we create beautiful smiles. Your Damon orthodontist takes into account a number of factors when first diagnosing your smile. Each individual's face, profile and other factors are important in anticipating what they will look like in their 40s, 50s and beyond.¹ The Damon System is designed to deliver results for a lifetime.

Treatment time with the Damon System is typically much faster than with conventional braces. Also, fewer appointments are required during treatment.
On the contrary, what makes the Damon System work so quickly is that it uses lighter, gentle forces than many traditional braces. The low-friction nature of the system and the light-force shape-memory wires are designed to gently guide your teeth into their ideal position with less discomfort than traditional braces.
Very light "shape memory" titanium wires are used that gently guide your teeth to their ideal position. Many people experience very little discomfort.
Not any more! Braces are smaller than they were just a few years ago, and new options like Damon Clear can help make them more discreet than the metal braces you may remember. Damon Braces have a small bracket size and profile with smooth, rounded corners designed for both aesthetics and patient comfort.
It's not too late! Healthy adults can often be treated just as easily as children. Healthy teeth can be moved at any age. In fact, according to the American Association of Orthodontists today about 1 in 5 patients is an adult. Many patients are treated into their 60s, 70s and beyond.* Many patients seek treatment even if they had braces in their youth. If you're looking into treatment as an adult be sure to consider Damon Braces. In a consumer survey, over 70% of consumer who had previously undergone orthodontic treatment stated they would have preferred to have received a Damon smile when shown a picture.**

We know that cost is a big question for anyone considering braces. The truth is, only your doctor can determine the cost for your specific treatment. It depends a lot on the kind of treatment you need, how long it will take, and even where you live. Damon Braces are usually similar to the cost of traditional braces. Most doctors offer flexible and affordable monthly payment plans, many with no down payment and no interest.
Because medical benefits differ significantly from policy to policy, you should review your policy coverage. If you have orthodontic coverage, Damon System braces are covered to the same extent as regular braces.
Most doctors will help you find options to make your treatment affordable. Many offices offer flexible and affordable monthly payment plans, many with no down payment and no interest.
Many doctors also offer third-party patient financing programs specifically designed for healthcare expenses, that makes it easier for you to get the treatment or procedures you want and need.
