Clear dental braces

A reliable and effective way to a straighter smile

Fixed braces usually conjure up images of metal train tracks, but with modern dentistry, this doesn’t have to be the case. At Church Road Dental, we use Cfast and QuickStraightTeeth™. They are simple, quick, and minimally invasive orthodontic appliances that do not compromise aesthetics or results. Once positioned, the braces are almost invisible, and your friends and family will be unable to tell you are wearing them at all.

What is Cfast?

Cfast focuses on the front six upper and lower teeth, correcting issues such as small gaps, crooked teeth, and mild misalignment. Cfast is a brilliant and very effective treatment option for adult patients looking to correct mild orthodontic issues aesthetically.

Cfast uses clear brackets fixed to the front of the teeth, with tooth-coloured wires threaded through, to provide efficient and effective treatment. The Cfast system moves the teeth in a much more predictable way than clear aligner systems, providing outstanding results and giving you the straight smile you’ve always wanted.

What is QuickStraightTeeth™?

QuickStraightTeeth™ is a brand of discreet orthodontic braces that provides an efficient solution for people wishing to straighten their teeth. Unlike traditional braces, QuickStraightTeeth™ uses tooth-coloured wires and brackets that are virtually invisible. This makes them an appealing choice for those who wish to correct their dental misalignments without the noticeable appearance of metal brackets and wires.

What does the treatment involve?

During your detailed consultation, we ask you about your ideal smile and examine your teeth, making sure you are best suited for Cfast or QuickStraightTeeth™. We take digital scans and images to carefully plan your predictable and fast treatment.

The clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires are placed on your teeth to gently move them into new, straighter positions. We supervise your treatment to ensure you remain on track for an incredible result.

In as little as 4 months, your treatment is complete! We remove the brackets and wires and leave you to enjoy your brand-new straighter smile. Our braces look great, feel comfortable, and work quickly to give you a beautiful straight new smile.

Frequently asked questions

You may notice some pressure or discomfort for the first few days after your Cfast braces are fitted onto your teeth, but it won’t hurt for long. Due to the gentle forces, the discomfort is temporary and should fade after the first few days. If your pain persists, please talk to your dentist.

You don’t have to dramatically change your diet when you have Cfast fixed braces, but you do need to be a bit careful about what you choose to eat. We advise you to avoid biting into very hard foods, including crusty bread, nuts and apples, and anything sticky that could dislodge your brackets. It is also important to keep up with a healthy diet and avoid too much sugar to maintain a good level of oral health.

Cfast braces are very discreet, and often other people do not know they are on your teeth until they get very close! The brackets and wires are clear, making them a far less visible option than other fixed orthodontic treatments.

The Cfast straightening system focuses only on the front six upper and lower teeth, the ones that are visible when you smile. It is used to improve the cosmetic appearance of your teeth, rather than correcting your bite or moving the positions of the larger back teeth. Therefore, the timescales involved with Cfast treatment are much faster.

It can be more difficult to clean your teeth when you have a brace fitted, and it will take a slightly longer time. However, it is very important to keep up with a good brushing routine during treatment, to protect your oral health and avoid discolouration. Your dentist will show you how to clean between your brackets and wire using interdental tools.

Retainers are seen as the final stage of all orthodontic treatment. Unless they are properly retained in their new positions, your teeth will try to return to the places they were in before you began your treatment, undoing all your hard work. To stop this from happening, you need to wear a retainer. We recommend you wear your retainer on a part time basis (overnight while you sleep) to keep your teeth straight for the long term.

The length of your treatment with Cfast does depend on how far your teeth have to move to achieve your dream results. Cosmetic orthodontics, like Cfast, are completed in a significantly shorter treatment time. On average, treatment takes 4-6 months, and should be no longer than nine months.
