I’m Getting The Damon Braces

0 Comments

I have wanted braces since I was a teenager. My teeth aren’t super crooked or anything, they are just a little crowded and I’d love to have that perfect smile…not to mention the hygiene aspect of having straight teeth (i.e. easier to brush and floss, less build-up between overlapping teeth, healthier overall teeth and gums, etc.). With the support of my wonderful husband, I’m going to finally pull the trigger.

I will be getting the new and improved Damon Braces. Some of the benefits that have been described to me by my Orthodontist and by this website include:

As you can see by the table above, the Damon Braces are a tad bit more expensive, but well worth the expense! I’ll keep everyone updated on my progress. I will have them put on Nov. 29th. I’m SO ready for this!!

Did you have braces growing up or as an adult? What was your experience?
