How long does treatment take?

Studies have shown that treatment time with Damon Smile is typically much faster than with conventional braces. Also, far fewer appointments are required during treatment, making them more convenient for you.

Since Damon Smile works so quickly, does that mean it is harsh or unsafe?

What makes Damon Smile work so quickly is its use of gentle, more biologically-sensible forces than conventional braces. The low-friction ensures improved tooth position and improved facial harmony. Very light-weight, shape memory wires are used to gently guide your teeth to their ideal position resulting in a beautiful Damon Smile. So not only are the convenient and faster, they are also more comfortable.

Will my teeth hurt after adjustments?

Braces in general can cause some discomfort because of the nature of what they do. Most patients experience very little discomfort with Damon Smile braces because of the system’s low-force, low-friction nature.

Aren’t braces big and bulky?

Not anymore! Braces are much smaller than they were just a few years ago, and new materials make them very discreet. Damon Smile braces have a particularly low profile, so you might forget you’re even wearing them!

What about adult treatment?

People of all ages should be proud of their smile. Adults can be treated quickly, easily, and most importantly, with a high-quality result. It’s never too late to get the smile of your dreams.

How much does Damon Smile treatment cost?

We know that cost is a big question for anyone considering braces. Upon your initial consultation we’ll be able to determine the cost for your specific treatment, however, Damon Smile braces are usually similar to the cost of traditional braces.

Does insurance cover Damon Smile treatment?

Because medical benefits differ significantly from policy to policy, you should review your policy coverage. If you have orthodontic coverage, Damon Smile braces are covered to the same extent as regular braces.

What payment options are available?

Upon your initial consultation and treatment plan we’ll sit with you to determine the best financial option available.
