Damon self-ligating braces Clear ceramic braces Invisalign
Are the braces noticeable? Yes, people will notice you are wearing braces but the brackets are small so they won’t make you feel too self-conscious. Yes, but only slightly. The ceramic brackets blend in with the colour of your teeth making them less noticeable. No, that’s the beauty of Invisalign aligners. They’re made from a clear plastic material so are virtually invisible. No-one will know you’re having treatment.
Do they get results? Absolutely! Damon braces use a self-ligating system which means the brackets and archwires respond to the movement of your teeth. This gets an excellent result. They sure do.

The Invisalign aligners are custom-made to your teeth, making them incredibly precise. This means you can be sure of getting a great result post-treatment.
Can I eat normally while wearing braces? Yes, you can. Just take care with hard crunchy foods, such as apples and carrots. Grate them instead so you can still enjoy them, but keep away from sticky toffees and popcorn, which can damage or get stuck in your braces. Yes, you can.
