Choosing the type of orthodontic treatment that's right for you is a life-changing decision, so why settle for the limitations of invisible aligners, such as Invisalign, when there's Damon Clear®? While aligners may be effective at helping to to straighten some teeth, the Damon System treatment method delivers more than straight teeth and results intended to last a lifetime.

Before Damon System Treatment
This patient could be considered a candidate for treatment using an invisible aligner. While some may only notice a space between her two front teeth that need correction, note that many of her teeth are tipped inward, resulting in a narrow smile accentuated by dark corridors within her lips. Aligners could be used to make minor corrections, but what about her smile? This patient would benefit from a broader smile, something the Damon System delivers.
After Damon System Treatment
Following treatment with the Damon System, the patient not only received straight teeth and a broader smile, but witness the improvements to her overall facial aesthetics. Notice the change in her mid-face, smile and arch form. Such extraordinary results would be difficult to achieve with aligners.
