The Smile Team at Lewis Orthodontics is asked a lot of questions. On this page, we answer the most common questions we are asked about Damon Smile Braces.
How Long Does Damon Smile Treatment Take?
No two people are alike, so there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to orthodontic treatment. However, studies have shown that a Damon Smile treatment plan works quicker than conventional braces. You will also need fewer appointments along the way.
Is the Damon Smile Treatment Painful or Unsafe?
Not at all! Damon Smile works quickly, but it is far gentler than conventional braces. Damon Smile clear braces use light-weight, shaped memory wires to gently move your teeth into the correct position. The low-friction action of Damon Smile braces achieves optimum tooth position in less time and with less discomfort than traditional fixed braces.
Will My Teeth Hurt after Damon Smile Adjustments?
Damon Smile braces use low-friction, low-force action, so although you will experience a small amount of discomfort when your braces are routinely adjusted, it will be minimal. Most of our patients say their Damon Smile braces are less painful than conventional braces.
Are the Braces Big and Bulky?
Traditional fixed braces are bulky and visible, so once you have them on, you won’t be able to hide them. Modern braces are much more discreet these days, but thanks to new materials, Damon Smile braces are very low profile and many patients hardly notice they are wearing them.
Is Damon Smile Suitable for Adults?
It doesn’t matter how old you are – we think you deserve to be proud of your smile! Lewis Orthodontics treats people of all ages, from young children to seniors. Adults respond well to orthodontic treatment and can be treated quickly and easily. Modern braces for adults such as Damon Smile are discreet and effective, so if you can’t bear to smile in public, contact us for more information.
How Much does a Damon Smile Treatment Cost?
Cost is usually a primary consideration for our patients. Orthodontic treatment can be expensive, so we offer flexible payment options to meet your needs. All patients are different, and no two patients need the same treatment plan. We can give you a treatment cost estimate at your initial no-obligation consultation, but in general, Damon Smile braces cost a similar amount to conventional braces.
Will My Dental Insurance Plan Cover Damon Smile Treatment?
Most dental insurance plans cover the cost of orthodontic treatment, but it is advisable to contact your insurance company to check your policy coverage. If your policy does provide orthodontic coverage, it will cover the cost of Damon Smile braces, as these are similar to conventional braces.
What Payment Options Do You Offer?
We have a range of payment options for our patients. We offer flexible payment plans where you can spread the cost of orthodontic treatment over the long period of time, so the monthly payments are lower. We accept all Flexible Spending Account (FSA) cards, major credit and debit cards, cash and check, and direct payments from your bank.
