Damon® Smile Braces in Ottawa, Ontario

Our office is delighted to offer our patients Damon Smile braces! The Damon System will give you a beautiful broad smile, the type of smile preferred by most patients.
Damon braces use a specialized slide mechanism to hold the archwire, reducing the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth and allowing the teeth to move more freely, comfortably, and quickly. Thanks to these state-of-the-art braces, achieving your perfect smile can be faster and easier than you ever thought possible!

Damon® Smile Braces

Damon braces use a patented slide mechanism in place of orthodontic elastics to help the wire guide teeth into place. These slides help reduce the amount of pressure placed on the tooth. As a result, treatment with Damon Smile is often faster and requires fewer adjustments than traditional braces. The Damon Smile facilitates healthy tooth movement which may minimize discomfort and create beautiful Damon smiles that last a lifetime!

Braces are the beginning, but the system makes the smile!

Damon Smile is not just about revolutionary braces and wires; it’s a unique approach to treating patients.

Treatment time

While the time needed in braces will vary from patient to patient, treatment time with Damon Smile is typically much faster than with conventional braces. Also, fewer appointments are required during treatment than traditional braces, making your Damon experience more convenient.

Damon® Smile Info


Light forces, shape-memory wires, and new technology move teeth efficiently, decreasing treatment time and office visits, helping you manage your busy schedule.


Light Gentle Forces – Even though the Damon System works so rapidly, the use of gentle, low-friction force means less discomfort for you. Very light “shape memory” titanium wires are used, gently guiding your teeth to their ideal position.

Fewer Tooth Extractions – Many patients who may have required extractions with traditional braces can be treated without extractions, using the Damon System.

Reduce the Need for Elastic Ties – traditional braces use elastic ties to tie the wire into the braces, causing friction and pressure, making orthodontic treatment slower and less comfortable.


Damon braces are designed to be comfortable, discreet, and easy to keep clean. Without elastic ties, which attract and collect plaque and bacteria, Damon braces make dental hygiene easier during treatment. Plus, Damon Smile is available in clear brackets for patients who want a great smile without sacrificing aesthetics.
