CFAST stands for: “Cosmetically Focused Adult Straight Teeth” and this orthodontic system designed to give patients a significant improvement in the aesthetic zone of their teeth, discreetly, with minimal discomfort and without substantially changing the biting position. Treatment focuses on just the front six teeth – the “social six” that make up most of the visible smile--and treatment is completed in four to six months.
A challenge in cosmetic dentistry is the establishment of good gingival symmetry and proportion– the “pink aesthetics”. With Cfast, brackets are positioned in such a way so as to give ideal gingival symmetry at the end of the alignment stage.
Following Cfast treatment, opportunities exist to correct incisal edge discrepancies with minimally invasive techniques such as composite restorations.
Cfast offers a system that can be provided by general practitioners with little or no fixed orthodontic experience. Cfast does not get into advanced and complex diagnostic techniques.
