Damon™ Braces (Damon Smile and Damon Clear)

We’re pleased to offer our patients Damon self-ligating braces. Damon braces are tieless, which means they do not require the “colored tie” that wraps around the brace to hold the archwire in place. This significantly reduces the friction caused while the teeth are moving into position.

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 new braces, achieving your perfect smile can be faster and easier than you ever thought possible!

Dr. Insoft and Dr. Hurst and their amazing team have been fully trained to utilize the Damon bracket system, and have been doing so since 2006. We have treated close to 5000 patients with Damon braces! We love what we do and take pride in our conservative approach, making treatment easier and much more enjoyable for our patients.

How do Damon braces work?

Tie-less braces help reduce the amount of pressure being placed on each tooth and require fewer adjustments because there are no elastics to replace or adjust.

Damon Smile facilitates healthy tooth movement with complete control. By combining tie-less brackets and high-tech archwires, Drs. Insoft and Hurst can minimize discomfort and create beautiful smiles that last a lifetime.

We usually recommend Damon Smile braces to patients who have severe crowding and don’t want to use colored elastics on their braces. They are a great option for patients of all ages, but our adult patients especially enjoy the improved aesthetics of small, streamlined brackets.

What are Damon Clear Braces?

Damon Clear is part of the innovative Damon Smile, which combines tie-less brackets and high-tech archwires that are clinically proven to move teeth quickly and comfortably with spectacular results.

Damon Clear ceramic braces combine the best of traditional clear braces and efficient technology to deliver a discreet treatment experience with results that go beyond straight teeth!

With Damon Clear, people may not even realize you’re wearing braces. Tie-less Damon Clear braces (also referred to as white braces) are discreet and resistant to staining and discoloration throughout treatment.

Braces are the beginning, but the system makes the smile!

Damon Smile is not just about revolutionary braces and wires; it’s a whole new way of treating patients!


Damon self-ligating tie-less braces eliminate the need for elastic or metal “ties.” With Damon braces you can experience treatment without the feel of “tightening”.


Even though Damon braces work so quickly, the use of gentle, low-friction force means less discomfort for you.


Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable, and easier to keep clean. Without the elastic ties, which attract and collect plaque, Damon braces make dental hygiene less challenging during treatment. Plus, Damon Clear bracket braces are great for patients who want a great smile without sacrificing aesthetics.

The Whole Package!

Damon is well-known for its expansion capabilities, so we rarely need to use any additional appliances to expand the arches except in rare, more severe cases.

Treatment Time

While the time needed in braces will vary from case to case, treatment time with Damon braces can be slightly faster than with conventional braces in severe crowding cases. We determine the length of treatment by the severity of the misalignment, though an average case typically takes 18-24 months.

Also, fewer appointments are required during treatment, making your Damon experience convenient and hassle-free. Drs. Insoft and Hurst only need to see you every eight to ten weeks!

Your clear braces cost will depend on your personalized treatment plan. There isn’t one fixed ceramic braces cost with us, because everyone’s case is unique! When you visit our office for your complimentary consultation, we’ll work with you to create a payment plan that meets your needs.
