Discrete and fast solution to misaligned teeth.
Cfast Cosmetic Braces
A clear, removable aligner or two types of fixed brace, you can achieve your perfect smile in as little as eight weeks (the typical length of treatment is 3-6 months). Favoured by many celebrities including Holly Willoughby, Alexandra Burke and TOWIE’s Billie Faiers it is quick, simple, minimally invasive and cost effective.
The secret of Cfast’s success is that it only corrects the front six teeth of the smile (lower and upper) i.e. the Smile Line or the “Social Six”. Focusing on the “Social Six”, it does not correct major orthodontic issues and uses clear aligners or tooth coloured wires to gently realign the front teeth. Because it is just the front teeth, which are not as big and strong as your back teeth, it is more predictable and effective.
Cfast treatment only needs to apply light pressure and many patients comment on the ease and pain-free way in which they achieve the smile that they want.
Developed by Dr Biju Krishnan in 2009, it corrects adult alignment issues and can level and round out the arches, thus satisfying the needs of the vast majority of adult patients who seek orthodontic treatment. Dr Krishnan is not only the inventor of the Cfast system, but he is also the orthodontist at The London Centre for Cosmetic Dentistry and will be the dentist who treats you at the practice. So you are in very good hands.
Types of Cfast braces
There are three types of Cfast aligners, the dentist will help you choose which one is right for you depending on your orthodontic needs and lifestyle.
Tooth coloured wires and brackets are fitted to the front of your smile. They are hardly noticeable.
Plus the system is so quick, it won’t be long before they are removed and you are left with a beautiful smile.
The lingual braces are also fixed brackets and wires.
The lingual brace is fitted behind your teeth, so it is completely invisible when you smile.
Cfast SmileTRU is a removable clear aligner for patients who choose to not or cannot wear a fixed brace.
Virtually invisible when worn, the clear aligners are removable for eating or public speaking.
The Cfast treatment process
Whether you choose Cfast clear removable aligners or fixed braces you will make regular visits to the practice.
From when you have your braces fitted or when you start wearing your first set of clear aligners, you will book a series of appointments 3-4 weeks apart. This is so that Dr Biju Krishnan can readjust your brace or provide you with new aligners.
This step by step approach ensures that you are only applying gentle forces to the teeth, which is both good orthodontic practise and minimises any discomfort when wearing the brace. You will continue to visit the practice on this basis until your teeth have aligned into the correct position.
Once you have reached your last pair of clear aligners or you are ready to have your fixed brace removed, you will either have a fixed retainer fitted or impressions for a removable retainer or both – it depends on your treatment plan. This stage is so important as it is what will keep your teeth in the correct position following treatment.
