Do you have crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth? Are you in need of orthodontic treatment, but hesitant about the time that traditional braces take? Orthodontic treatment can improve the health and appearance of your smile, so ask Dr. Wendy Chen if Damon® braces in Colleyville, Texas, are the right choice for you.

Damon braces are self-ligating, which means that they do not need metal or elastic ties. This means that you can experience orthodontic treatment without tightening. The Damon System uses shape-memory wires that move the teeth faster and do not need as many adjustments as traditional braces.

Some advantages that Damon braces have over traditional braces include, but are not limited to:

– Treatment time is faster. On average, patients who use the Damon System complete orthodontic treatment seven months earlier.
– There are fewer adjustment appointments with our orthodontist.
– Damon braces are more aesthetically pleasing. Damon braces brackets are smaller than traditional brackets. In addition, Damon braces are available with clear brackets that are nearly invisible.
– There are fewer places on the brackets for plaque and bacteria to accumulate. Oral hygiene is easier as a result.
