Fresno, Clovis, Madera, Hanford, Tulare, and Visalia, California residents who want straight teeth and a fuller, more beautiful smile without the look and discomfort of traditional braces no longer have to settle for metal brackets or clear aligners. Dr. Bayrakdarian of Unique Orthodontics is now offering Damon® Clear™, a virtually invisible braces system that delivers fast, comfortable treatment without the “metal mouth” look to accommodate today’s image-conscious adults and teens. We are the leading provider of clear braces in Fresno, Clovis, Madera, Hanford, Tulare, and Visalia, California.

Traditional braces require elastic ties to hold wires in place, which can accumulate bacteria, stain or “yellow” during treatment and often require uncomfortable “tightening” that can actually hinder tooth movement and prolong treatment. In contrast, Damon Clear braces resist staining with the innovative Damon Smile “tieless” brackets and high-tech memory-shaped wires that eliminate the need for uncomfortable periodic “tightening.” With Damon, the wires move freely within the brackets for better oral hygiene and appearance, as well as fast, comfortable tooth movement.

“Damon Smile allows me to treat patients faster and more comfortably than ever before,” said Dr. Bayrakdarian. “My patients appreciate the convenience and discreet appearance of the Damon Clear braces, and I can create beautiful smiles with better facial results compared to traditional braces.”

Damon Smile treatment uses light, continuous force wires with tieless brackets. The gentle pressure exerted by Damon Smile discourages the need for tooth extractions and the use of headgear in the vast majority of cases.

“Damon Smile is one of the most innovative orthodontic treatments on the market and it’s already been used to treat more than 4.5 million cases around the world,” Dr. Bayrakdarian said. “We’re very pleased to bring this high-tech system to our patients in the Fresno area.”

At Unique Orthodontics we are now offering Damon ceramic clear brackets and Damon metal brackets. To find more information about Dr. Bayrakdarian or Damon Smile, visit To schedule a free consultation, call 559-222-2522. Now serving: Madera, Fresno, Clovis, Hanford, Visalia, & Tulare, California.
