Our office is pleased to offer our patients Damon Smile braces. Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the archwire, reducing the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth and allowing the teeth to move more freely, quickly, and comfortably. Thanks to these innovative braces, achieving your perfect smile can be faster and easier than you ever thought possible!
Damon Smile Braces – A world without elastic ties!

The Damon Smile facilitates healthy tooth movement which may minimize discomfort and create beautiful Damon Smiles that last a lifetime!
