How do Cfast braces work?

Cfast braces make use of clear orthodontic brackets that are fixed onto the teeth and joined with a nickel-titanium wire to exert gentle pressure towards moving the teeth. It takes less time than conventional orthodontic treatments as it focuses only on the front six teeth, which mostly influence the smile appearance.

Treatment with Cosmetically Focused Adult Straight Teeth (Cfast) ranges from four (4) to six (6) months, as it uses a more conventional orthodontic method to move and align teeth.

It can be used to take care of protruding front teeth, more severe crowding, and gummy smiles.
