Cfast braces: what are they
Cfast are a fast and gentle cosmetic dental treatment designed to straighten your teeth in as little as 4 to 6 months. They use tooth-coloured nickel titanium wires to exert pressure on clear brackets bonded to your teeth. They are often known as invisible braces. Most people won’t even be able to tell you’re having your teeth straightened. In fact, it’s popular with celebrities who are seeking the perfect smile. Cfast claim several have had invisible braces treatment using this system without the press even noticing. Now everyone can benefit from this celebrity-favoured treatment
This system focuses on your top and bottom front 6 teeth, often known as the ‘social six’. They will correct alignment problems quickly and unobtrusively. It is the ideal choice for mild crowding and gaps that are highly visible when you smile, talk or laugh.
Are they comfortable?
The short answer – yes. You may feel mild pressure as your teeth begin to move but you’ll be able to eat and drink as usual. The system will also not affect your speech.
Are Cfast braces better than traditional braces?
The main aim of traditional braces is to move the teeth and jaws, mainly of children, into an ideal position to enable optimal oral function. Cfast invisible braces are aimed only at adults and is carried out purely for cosmetic reasons.
The alternative options to Cfast invisible braces would be crowns or veneers, which usually involve the enamel of healthy teeth being shaved down and as such, can be considered more destructive. Moving teeth into a better position with invisible braces avoids having to carry out other more damaging treatments.
