What are Cfast™ braces?
Cfast is a simple cosmetic system which uses orthodontic appliances specially designed to straighten the front teeth of adults to provide a significant improvement in the appearance of their smile in a time frame of around 6 months (treatment should take no longer than 9 months but the vast majority are complete in a 4-6 month period). Your dentist will be able to give you a rough idea of how long treatment will take in your case when you attend for your initial consultation.
How do Cfast™ braces work?
There are many ways to move your front teeth but the most common is by using a tooth coloured brace that is fixed to the front of your teeth. Cosmetic Nickel Titanium wires work in conjunction with ceramic brackets to gently align the teeth into a better position using very light forces. Because the appliance has tooth coloured brackets and wires it is very discreet.
However there are also braces that can be used on the inside of your teeth which are completely invisible as well as plastic aligners for patients that prefer a removable option.
Your dentist will be best placed to discuss with you what is most appropriate in your case.
