Damon® Smile Info

Nord Orthodontics is pleased to offer our Orem and Eagle Mountain, UT patients Damon Smile braces. Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the archwire, reducing the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth and allowing the teeth to move more freely, quickly, and comfortably. Thanks to these innovative braces, achieving your perfect smile can be faster and easier than you ever thought possible!

We use the phrase, “a great smile is more than just straight teeth.” With Damon braces, Dr. Nord and our team have the ability to optimize the smile, not only through straightening the teeth, but also by providing the width to produce a full smile that fits proportionately within the lips and facial structures. The best part of a Damon smile is that it will look good now and look great for years to come.

Damon Smile Braces – A world without elastic ties!

Damon Smile is a self-ligating braces system. They use a specialized slide in place of elastics to help the wire guide teeth into place. Since there are no elastics that need to be replaced, the teeth can move faster and more efficiently. The technology of Damon Smile allows for a beautiful, full smile, usually without needing extractions.

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 whole different approach to treating patients.


Damon passive self-ligating braces eliminate the need for elastic or metal "ties." With Damon tie-less braces you can experience treatment without tightening.

Treatment Time

While the time needed in braces will vary from case to case, treatment time with Damon Smile is typically much faster than with conventional braces. Also, far fewer appointments to our Orem and Eagle Mountain orthodontic offices are required during treatment, making your Damon experience convenient and hassle-free.


Even though Damon Smile works so quickly, 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.


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