How do Fastbraces work?

This treatment option takes 3-12 months depending on the severity of your misalignment. Fastbraces are a treatment we offer that secures straight teeth for you in a very limited time frame. The speed of treatment however does not mean a compromise on the longevity of results, as Fastbraces guarantee outcomes which last a lifetime. Using contemporary wire technology they move both the crown and root of the teeth involved.

You could also consider ClearCorrect, which uses a series of custom-made clear aligners that move your teeth gradually into the correct position. These are removable and practically invisible as they fit so snugly, ensuring discretion during treatment.

We offer a number of different braces, each designed to be able to help you get the smile that you wished you had. Each type of brace may work slightly differently, but all use the most cutting edge technology to achieve the best results for you and your aims.
