Cfast is a simple, gentle, minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that corrects alignment issues with the top and bottom front six teeth, and can level and round out the arches, thus satisfying the needs of the vast majority of adult patients who seek orthodontic treatment.

Cfast uses clear orthodontic brackets and tooth-colored nickel-titanium wires. The treatment works     much like that using clear aligners, but tooth movement is much more predictable and usually more than twice as quick.

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.

FAQs

What is Cfast?

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.

How does it 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 those patient that prefer a removable option.

Your dentist will be best placed to discuss with you what is most appropriate in your case.

Why is it so fast?

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.

Is it better than traditional braces or orthodontics?

Cfast should not be compared to traditional orthodontics or braces.The main aim of traditional orthodontics is to move the teeth and jaws, mainly of children, into an ideal relationship so that they will function well when biting and chewing.Cfast is aimed only at adults and is carried out purely for cosmetic reasons.The alternative to Cfast will be crowns or veneers which usually involve the enamel of otherwise healthy teeth to be drilled down and as such can be quite destructive. Moving teeth into a better position avoids having to carry out other more damaging treatments.

Is it painful?

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.

Will I be restricted in what I can eat?

 If you have opted for a fixed brace then it is advisable to avoid hard foods such as nuts, popcorn, crusty bread or any such foods that may accidentally dislodge the brackets.  It is also best to stay away from heavily coloured foods which may on occasion stain the brace, however if this does happen your dentist will be able to easily restore the cosmetic appearance.

With removable aligners, it is best that these are removed before eating or drinking.

Will I have problems cleaning my teeth?

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.

How long does treatment take?

Cfast is a procedure in cosmetic dentistry know as cosmetic orthodontics or short-term orthodontics.  By definition treatment times are significantly shorter than conventional orthodontics.  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.
