Cosmetic alignment is the process of correcting the alignment of the six front teeth (also known as the social six). Having well aligned teeth improves not only your appearance but can also significantly improve oral health and function. If you are only looking for a minor cosmetic improvement, this treatment may take between 6 to 9 months, depending on the severity of the problem.
At Blue Tooth Dental, we use Cfast which is a simple, gentle, minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that corrects misaligned front teeth, and can straighten the edges of your teeth, which are the two things patients don’t like about their smile.
Teeth alignment using orthodontic movements can be safely and predictably undertaken at any stage of life—it is not just for children and teenagers. Fixed clear braces and clear aligners (like Invisalign or Clear Correct) are the most common methods used for adults.
Your dentist at Blue Tooth Dental will complete a full dental examination, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your teeth. Knowing your end goal, your dentist can present you with a few appropriate options and in some cases even give you a preview of the outcome before commencing treatment.
If your teeth are not suitable for treatment by a general dentist, your dentist will refer you to a specialist orthodontist for more complex treatment.
What is Cfast?
Cfast is a simple, gentle, minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that corrects misaligned front teeth, and can straighten the edges of your teeth. It is a fast, effective, and affordable treatment when adults are seeking to correct their smiles and takes less time than conventional orthodontics because it focuses the front teeth that most influence the smile. Cfast treatment often eliminates the need for more invasive treatment options for smile make-overs such as porcelain veneers.
How does Cfast work?
Fixed braces are a proven and reliable treatment offering the finest degree of controlling teeth movement. We use thin, tooth coloured orthodontic wire clips into tooth coloured brackets, which are placed onto your teeth, gently moving your front teeth back into alignment. The braces are almost invisible. You will have straight front teeth in as little as 6 months.
What happens after Cfast is completed?
After your braces are removed or your clear aligner treatment is completed, you will have a permanent retainer cemented onto the inner side of your teeth and you will be issued with a removable retainer to wear during the night, to make sure your teeth do not move back into their original position.
