Are you in need of adult braces? Are you unhappy, self-conscious or even embarrassed of your smile?
Many adults spend their entire lives covering their mouths when they laugh, smile or talk. They feel stuck because they do not want to wear adult braces for years or they are concerned that corrective teeth straightening procedures could be to invasive or too expensive. At Devon Dental Centre of Excellence we offer a wide range of effective, safe and affordable cosmetic braces solutions that will fit your pocket and your lifestyle for both adults and children.
What is cosmetic orthodontic treatment?
Cosmetic orthodontic treatment is a way of straightening or moving teeth, to improve the appearance of the teeth and how they work. It can also help to look after the long-term health of the teeth, gums and jaw joints, by spreading the biting pressure over all the teeth.
We use the very latest orthodontic techniques, equipment and technology to give you the smile you desire.Treatment may involve the extraction of teeth but only when necessary.
Fixed braces are available in tooth coloured ceramic or metal. They consist of small brackets which are fitted to your teeth and very thin metal wires that gently push your teeth into their new, beautifully aligned positions.
Lingual braces are the perfect choice if you want to change your smile without everyone knowing. Working similarly to traditional fixed braces, but fitted behind the teeth, lingual braces are totally invisible when you smile.
We offer the following options at Devon Dental Centre of Excellence:
- Damon Braces
At your consultation with your orthodontist, you will be advised which is the best solution to suit both your needs and your budget.

A bit more about each system!
Damon Braces are a fixed system that uses technology for faster treatment times and more comfortable correction.Damon smiles are achieved with light biologically-sensible forces, and are specifically designed to improve the overall facial result of each patient.
The advantages of the Damon Braces system include:
- Damon passive self-ligating braces that eliminate the need for elastic or metal “ties”. With Damon tie-less braces you can experience treatment without tightening.
- Light high-technology shape-memory wires that move teeth faster and require fewer adjustments.
- A new clinically proven treatment approach that aligns your teeth and enhances your facial aesthetics—usually without extractions.
Traditional braces are tied in with elastics, which cause friction and pressure, making treatment slower and less comfortable. Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably.
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 the Damon System is available in clear brackets for those image conscious patients.
Incognito braces are an advanced generation of brace that is hidden discreetly on the back of the teeth, not on the front like conventional ‘train tacks’. This allows people to go about their daily routine without feeling self-conscious because their braces are virtually invisible from the outside.
Incognito braces are suitable for all age groups – children, adolescents and adults who want to correct their tooth position.
The Incognito Lite brace is a quick and cost effective alternative to the full treatment if only front six or eight teeth need straightening.
The brace is custom made for each patient to maximise comfort and ensure precise results, this is achieved by using the latest computer technology when creating the brace.
Invisalign is different to traditional teeth straightening treatments. Using innovative technology that they invented and continue to evolve, Invisalign comes as a series of clear removable aligners that straighten your teeth, and unlike fixed braces, there are no wires or brackets. This means there is no metal and they are nearly invisible when you wear them.
You will change the removable aligners every two weeks. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move little by little until they have straightened to the final position.
Invisalign uses a virtual 3D treatment plan which shows the series of movements your teeth are projected to go through over the course of the treatment. This enables you to see what your teeth are expected to look like when the treatment is finished and monitor changes as you go.
Because Invisalign aligners can be removed at any time during treatment, you can eat whatever you want, maintain good oral hygiene, and choose to remove them briefly for special occasions such as weddings or big meetings. Your lifestyle remains intact.
