Frequently Asked Questions

Standard brace systems are made up of 6 or more repeated parts, all of which are highly visible.

These include:

  • Metal brackets
  • Small rubber bands
  • Coloured elastic ligatures
  • Metal bracket hooks
  • A metal archwire
  • Metal bands

All of these component parts are highly visible and contrast highly with the colour range of natural teeth.

The only way to hide brace systems is to use colours that are very similar to the colour of the tooth or to avoid colour completely and focus instead on clear components.

Damon braces UK use some of the same component parts, typically brackets and an archwire, which are either clear or coloured white instead of having a metallic finish.

This means that your Damon braces are much less likely to be seen while you have them and may only be noticed if someone comes very close to you.

Ultimately Invisalign Aligners are the best option for those who wish to keep their brace systems more private or for adults who are receiving orthodontic treatment and have very professional jobs. Although Damon Clear Braces are a great second choice if you are looking for a non removable appliance.
