Damon vs. Invisalign

The table below will help you decide whether Invisalign or braces by Damon are right for you.


Damon Clear Braces

Invisalign Braces

Virtually Invisible



Is Everyone a Candidate?



Quality of Results

Excellent. Effective at treating mild to severe crowding while delivering arch development and aligned teeth, bite and smile arc.

Can be effective at treating mild to moderate tooth crowding but does not treat as effectively as dental braces, according to clinical studies.

Long-Term Results

Removable retainer at night may be recommended.

Higher relapse rate than orthodontic braces. Removable aligner/retainer at night may be recommended.


Damon braces have been found to be more comfortable than traditional braces for teeth, according to clinical studies.

May experience temporary discomfort for a few days at the beginning of each phase of treatment.


Not removable, this means that Damon Clear is working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to move teeth quickly.

Removable but must be worn a minimum of 20-22 hours a day to be most effective.

Speech Difficulty


May temporarily affect speech (e.g., lisp) during treatment.


Ranges from $3,800 - $8,000 depending on treatment.
