Damon System Literature:
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. The Damon System is designed to deliver results for a lifetime.
