Damon Smile Q & A

What is the Damon Smile?

With traditional metal braces, teeth straightening not only involves metal braces but in some cases, tooth extraction and palate-expanding. With Damon Clear, Dr. Mizrahi is able to straighten your teeth more quickly and efficiently, without resorting to more invasive measures. And the best part? Damon Clear is designed to be far less noticeable than its metal counterparts.

Damon Clear gives you a full, 10-tooth Damon Smile by using your body's natural adaptive processes to create space naturally. Using slide mechanisms instead of metal brackets, Dr. Mizrahi moves your, or your child’s, teeth much faster than with traditional braces, often shaving an average of six to seven months off the overall treatment time.

What problems can Damon Clear correct?

Damon Clear isn’t for everyone. If you or your child has severe alignment issues, Dr. Mizrahi may recommend more aggressive measures. If, however, you’re keen to preserve your natural teeth, but you want them straighter, Damon Clear might be just the solution you’re looking for.

Damon Clear can correct:

  • Overbite
  • Gapped teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Crowded teeth

The best way to find out whether Damon Clear is right for you is to sit down with Dr. Mizrahi to review your options and your goals.

What are the advantages of Damon Clear?

At its core, Damon Clear offers tieless teeth straightening, which means there are no rubber bands pulling at your teeth, creating friction and binding. Damon Clear relies on a slide mechanism that works with your teeth, guiding them into place naturally.

Because of its mostly clear components, Damon Clear makes a great option for those who don’t want to endure months, even years, of metalwork in their mouths. Damon Clear works as well as traditional braces on your visible teeth, and often much faster. On top of all this, the Damon Clear system is much easier to keep clean, which means that you’ll still have healthy white teeth after you’re done with straightening process.

Damon Clear is appropriate for adults, preteens, and teenagers.
