Types of Braces

Types of Braces

It wasn’t all that long ago that there was only one type of braces: traditional metal braces. Now there are many types to choose from. Even those traditional metal braces aren’t that traditional anymore. Below are some of the types of braces we offer.

Damon® Smile

Damon Smile braces use the special Damon bracket. This is a self-ligating bracket, which eliminates the ties used in traditional braces. This makes them more streamlined, less visible, but just as effective.

Damon® CLEAR

With Damon Clear, you get the same benefits as Damon Smile, but with an even more discreet look. This is because Damon Clear uses clear brackets rather than metal, allowing them to blend into the teeth.


Invisalign uses clear aligners that are custom made for your teeth. You switch out the aligners yourself, so you do not come in for adjustments. And since the aligners are clear, no one knows you are wearing them.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are not made from clear material, but they are still invisible. This is because these braces are placed on the tongue side—or lingual side—of the teeth. They are incredibly effective and no one can see them.
