Fastbraces for a beautiful smile very soon


Fastbraces, as the name suggests, is a speedy yet safe, effective and discreet form of braces in Colchester for correcting the alignment issues of your teeth. Depending on the severity of your misalignment there are different programmes available and results can be achieved in 100 days, with changes visible within a few weeks. Fastbraces work by moving the root of the tooth from the beginning of the procedure, which enables the easier and quicker movement of your teeth. Fastbraces also work to shrink or grow bone to correct overcrowding and bite disorders. Although Fastbraces consist of wires and brackets, these are either clear or enamel coloured which means they are very subtle in appearance. Therefore they are an attractive alternative to conventional orthodontic braces which are very efficient, but are highly visible in the mouth and therefore a less popular choice of treatment amongst adults.


ClearCorrect delivering a perfect smile for you


ClearCorrect works using a series of clear plastic aligners which are individually tailored to create gentle pressure on your teeth, gradually moving them into their correct positions. Unlike Fastbraces which use wires and brackets, ClearCorrect aligners can be taken out of the mouth and put back in as necessary and therefore they provide more comfort and convenience. The aligners are removed before eating, drinking and brushing your teeth, other than that you need to wear them for around 22 hours of the day for 2 weeks and then you move on to the next aligner in the series. You can visit your dentist after every three or four aligners to make sure that the process is progressing correctly, until you have reached your desired look. The length of the treatment will depend on the severity of your alignment issues and your dentist may suggest wearing a retainer following most forms of orthodontic treatment to help maintain your beautiful new smile.
