Smiling and Laughing

Full orthodontics can straighten out even the most unruly of teeth — but not everyone is interested in the time, expense, and extremity of a full course of orthodontics. That’s why many patients turn to their general dentist and SmileFast™ to more easily achieve the beautiful smile they’re looking for.

Rebecca was one such patient. Dr. Lee’s case study was recently featured in Australiasian Dentist Magazine to illustrate just how effective SmileFast can be under the right circumstances.

Why Rebecca Chose SmileFast

Most of us are familiar with traditional braces: Metal brackets and wires which are worn, on average, 18 months to three years. There are a number of alternatives to traditional braces available today, from clear braces to Six Month Smiles™, and each has its own benefits and downsides. SmileFast may be the right choice for you if you’re looking for orthodontics that are fast, easy, subtle, and precise.

The use of advanced 3D imaging technology allows your dentist to scan your teeth for a precise analysis of what needs to change. Then, that 3D scan allows your dentist to optimise the process for maximum straightening in minimum time. Those scans are used to plot out each stage of treatment and choose the most efficient placement of brackets for the entire process. And best of all, the 3D imaging technology allows patients to see what their finished results will look like before they even have the first bracket affixed.

One patient, 38-year-old Rebecca, came to Dr. Lee with complaints about her smile. She was frustrated with her crooked smile, which she felt made her look like she was missing teeth. She’d looked into braces before, but the thought of years of braces was off-putting to her, and she had been told she would need to have teeth removed, which she didn’t want.

SmileFast turned out to be the perfect solution for Rebecca. The 6-9 month timeframe was appealing to her, and it wouldn’t require the removal of any teeth to straighten her smile. Best of all, she could get it done right here in her general dentist’s office, without having to see a specialist.

Rebecca Saw Beautiful Results

Rebecca’s case was a shining example of what SmileFast can do for the right patient. In just seven months, the crookedness that had made Rebecca hesitant to show her smile was completely resolved. Now, Rebecca can smile with confidence — and all without the extractions and years of orthodontics that had kept her from correcting her smile earlier.

Have you ever found yourself in Rebecca’s shoes? Perhaps you’re unhappy with your smile, but the orthodontic options you’ve looked into so far seemed unsatisfactory. SmileFast isn’t for everyone, but for the right candidate, it can give you the smile of your dreams in a matter of months. And if SmileFast isn’t the right choice for your smile, Dr. Lee can recommend other types of orthodontics that better suit your teeth. There’s no need to be stuck with a smile you don’t love.
