What is Smilefast™?

Smilefast™ combines traditional orthodontic techniques with the latest technology in 3D computer imaging. This treatment uses clear brackets and white wires that will be less visible in your mouth than metal braces.

By identifying the best possible position for braces to be fitted, Smilefast™ allows for shorter treatments with more predictable outcomes. The technology even allows us to show you what your new smile should look like before we start the treatment.

Smilefast™ was designed as a short-term orthodontic option for adults who want to straighten their teeth in a shorter period of time. Most people complete the treatment in 6 to 9 months, but this depends on your situation.

Who is suitable for Smilefast™?

Smilefast™ is designed for adult patients who want to achieve a straight smile in the shortest possible time. The treatment is suitable for a range of orthodontic concerns, including:

  • crooked teeth
  • crowded teeth
  • gaps between teeth
  • protruding teeth
  • uneven gum lines
  • deep bites
  • underbites.

We’ll check your suitability for Smilefast™ treatment when you come in for your consultation. If you’re not eligible, we can discuss the other orthodontic options we offer at our Townsville clinic.

How is Smilefast™ different?

Smilefast™ was designed as an alternative to traditional braces for adults who don’t like the appearance of metal brackets and wires. This treatment uses clear brackets and white wires that blend in more with your teeth.

As well as being more discreet, Smilefast™ braces can also correct orthodontic problems in a shorter time span. While traditional braces can take 2 to 3 years to achieve results, the average Smilefast™ treatment time is 6 months, though more complex orthodontic cases may take longer.

Smilefast™ could also be an option if your orthodontic issue means you’re not suitable for Invisalign® treatment.

What are the risks?

We’ll make sure you understand all the possible risks and complications before you agree to Smilefast™ treatment.

As long as you follow our instructions about foods and activities to avoid and how to take proper care of your braces, you shouldn’t experience any problems. We’ll also arrange appointments every four weeks to check your progress and make any adjustments needed. After your Smilefast™ treatment is completed, you’ll need to wear a retainer to hold your teeth in their new position and prevent them from shifting back.

You may feel minor discomfort when the braces are first fitted, but you should get used to this in a few days. If you feel any pain or discomfort after this time, or other unusual symptoms, make an emergency appointment at our clinic.

How much does Smilefast™ cost?

As Smilefast™ is completed in a shorter time, it can be more affordable than other orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign®.

We’ll give you a complete breakdown of costs during your consultation. We can also discuss our payment plans and options to help make your treatment as affordable as possible.
