    About 30% of our patients are adults. They like the fact that Damon® Clear braces are barely noticeable -- and they still get the Damon System benefit of getting a straighter smile in less time!

Brush. Floss. Swish.

I wear braces, so I need to brush and floss after I eat or drink anything. REALLY?

healthy-smileWhen you wear braces, you, Dr. Shaver and your dentist work together as a team. We all share the same goal – for you to have a sensational, healthy smile with beautiful, straight, white teeth.

  • Dr. Shaver straightens your teeth with an individualized treatment plan.
  • Your dentist helps keep your smile healthy with regular professional cleanings and check-ups.
  • You, however, are the one who must take special care of your teeth every single day throughout the length of your treatment — and that takes a little extra time and effort.

Over time, this turns into plaque (say: plak) and continues to eat away at the enamel on your teeth. Without protective enamel:
