Ceramic braces move teeth just as effectively as metal braces, except the brackets are clear, so they are less noticeable. They are most popular with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal. One of the main drawbacks of ceramic braces is they can be more fragile.
Traditional Metal Braces are made of high-quality, durable stainless steel. They are the most common type of braces. The brackets, which are bonded to the front of each tooth, are connected by the archwire, which helps guide the teeth into the correct positions. With traditional braces, patients are able to choose different colored ties at each appointment to personalize their own “style”. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.
With the Damon® System, treatment time is typically shorter than with traditional braces. Shorter treatment time means fewer appointments and a beautiful smile…faster. You may be surprised at how fast The Damon® System employs a unique treatment philosophy that goes beyond straight teeth to create broad beautiful smiles. We take into account each patients’ face, profile and other factors, anticipating what patients will look like in their 40’s, 50’s and beyond.
