Why use it?
Cfast is a short term orthodontic system using unique clear brackets and tooth colored wires that blend seamlessly with the surrounding tooth structure. It is easy to start; after impressions are taken and sent to the lab, clear brackets come set in custom trays for ready one step placement. It is effective; the award winning clear braces and shape memory wires are specifically engineered for optimum and predictable short term orthodontic results. Treatment goals with the Cfast system are not as comprehensive as most traditional orthodontic cases. The aim is to correct issues such as crowded, crooked, or spaced teeth without the look of traditional braces and without the time (traditional braces usually take about 2 years) primarily focussing on the front six teeth.

How it works
Traditional orthodontic treatment often requires removal of healthy teeth and/or the use of palatal expanders to make space in the mouth. This approach is often uncomfortable, may take longer, and can leave a narrower arch and a flatter profile. Cfast self-ligating brackets are full, natural 10-tooth smiles achieved with light biologically sensitive forces, and are specifically designed to improve the overall result. This means greater comfort, discrete appearance, fewer appointments and often reduced treatment times. It’s time to look at braces in a whole new light. Show off your smile while in treatment and for years to come.
