Damon® Smile

Self-Ligating Braces in Puyallup and Eatonville, WA

Ormiston Orthodontics is pleased to offer our Puyallup and Eatonville patients passive, self-ligating 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 new braces, achieving your perfect smile can be faster and easier than you ever thought possible!

Damon braces are different than traditional braces in that the method of holding the arch wire in place is built into the bracket. So, although colorful ties can be used for fun, they are not required to hold the archwire in place. This allows lighter, gentler wires to be used to move the teeth.

Tie-less braces – A world without elastic ties!

Tie-less braces help reduce the amount of pressure being placed on the tooth and require fewer adjustments by Dr. Ormiston because there are no elastics to replace.

Damon Smile


Damon Smile facilitates healthy tooth movement with complete control. By combining tie-less brackets and high-tech archwires, we can minimize discomfort and create beautiful 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 new way of treating patients!


Damon tie-less braces eliminate the need for elastic or metal “ties.” With Damon braces you can experience treatment without tightening.


Even though Damon Smile works so quickly, the use of gentle, low-friction force means less discomfort for you.


Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable, and easy to keep clean. Without the 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.

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. Treatment with Dr. Ormiston typically lasts between one and two years. Also, you only need to visit our Puyallup or Eatonville orthodontic offices every six to 12 weeks for adjustments, making your Damon experience convenient and hassle-free.

With more than a decade of experience with Damon Smile self-ligating braces, Dr. Ormiston can give you the smile you want with the comfort and convenience you deserve. Learn more during your complimentary consultation at Ormiston Orthodontics in Puyallup and Eatonville!
