Cfast is a fast, effective and affordable
Cfast is a fast, effective and affordable treatment when adults are seeking to correct their smiles. Because we do not claim to address major orthodontic issues, Cfast can be done very quickly, making it more affordable than all other orthodontic options.
Cfast takes less time than conventional orthodontics because it focuses only on the “social six”, the front teeth that most influence the smile. The process is further enhanced with the use of special nickel-titanium wires, which exert gentle pressure to force movement in the teeth.
Before & After Images
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 usually less than 6 months.
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 those patient that prefer a removable option.
Your dentist will be best placed to discuss with you what is most appropriate in your case.
Cfast focuses on just the front teeth, the teeth you can see when you smile for a purely cosmetic improvement. Teeth at the front of the mouth have just one root and the bone here is less dense than at the back of the mouth. As such, treatment can be concluded in a significantly shorter time frame when compared with traditional braces.
Conventional orthodontics repositions all the teeth in your mouth including the ones at the back which adds significantly to the time – usually around 18-24 months. Since most adults are not concerned about the position of their back teeth and want to avoid lengthy treatments, Cfast provides an ideal solution.
As with any orthodontic procedure there can be some discomfort for a few days after appliance is fitted. However because with Cfast the forces are very light usually after the first 7-10 days there should be little to no pain at all.
During treatment you may find that the teeth become a little mobile and sensitive to pressure. This is quite normal and will fully resolve when the braces are removed.
It can be a little more challenging to clean your teeth if you are wearing a brace. However good oral hygiene is very important during treatment and your dentist or dental hygienist will show you how to best look after your teeth as well as suggest the right products to use.
