Below are some of the more frequently asked questions we have had from dentists. If you have a question that is not answered here, please feel free to send us an enquiry.
How long does this treatment take?
One of the advantages of Smilefast is it only takes 6-9 months to cosmetically enhance your smile.
How is the treatment completed in under a year?
Smilefast is not designed to produce a Class 1 Bite. It is designed to give adult patients a great smile, without rectifying all the problems associated with their dental structure. Smilefast achieves these great smiles through the use of a computerised set-up using the very latest in orthodontic treatment software. Then, by using Indirect Bonding customised to each patient, brackets are placed in the optimal position to move each tooth to the desired position. Smilefast’s fantastic digital accuracy delivers the best possible outcome in the least possible time with minimal need to adjust bracket positions.
Why would a general dentist offer a braces treatment?
Smilefast lets you create a new, high-value patient revenue stream with short term orthodontics. Most adults don’t want to go through the extended treatment to get a Class 1 bite. They’re after a significantly improved smile in as little time as possible.
What’s involved in becoming a Smilefast provider?
We offer two, two day courses. The first is Smilefast Pro where you learn the basics of Smilefast. The second course is Smilefast Advanced: another two day course to expand your Smilefast knowledge. Check-out our courses page for more information.
What if my dental practice doesn’t have the necessary equipment?
If you don’t have the orthodontic equipment necessary, we are able to provide you with a Starter Kit. This kit has the required orthodontic instruments and supplies needed to treat patients with Smilefast.

Can I treat any case with Smilefast?
Smilefast is designed to treat 75% of adult patients wanting to significantly improve their smile. Smilefast teaches you which cases to treat and which cases not to treat.
