FastBraces vs. Invisalign: The Differences You Should Know

Everyone should feel confident about their smile! Invisalign and FastBraces  have recently become more popular, as people want to improve their teeth! This is a breakdown of the differences between FastBraces and Invisalign. If you’re considering one of the two treatments, it’s important to make an informed decision before you go ahead.


FastBraces have come about more recently than Invisalign to combat misaligned teeth in a similar way to regular braces. Both the wires and the brackets used in FastBraces are reportedly more comfortable than regular braces as they are not made from metal. The dental treatment usually takes three months to one year, but sometimes a few weeks can be enough for a patient!

Fastbraces come a little cheaper than regular braces, however, they are a cosmetic procedure. This means, they may not resolve your oral issues like regular braces do, they are not a health fix for problems you may be having with your teeth.


Invisalign is a clear retainer used to straighten your smile, but they are removable which is convenient and good for maintaining good dental hygiene. Because they are clear, the retainers are nice and discreet! Invisalign is the more expensive option, however, the retainers usually last about 10 years, making them more of an investment. 96% of people are happy with their results after Invisalign treatment.

Invisalign is also considered a cosmetic treatment and is recommended for mild misalignment. It should not be used for more serious issues.

Making Your Choice

It’s important to make an informed choice and consult a professional before you decide to go ahead with anything. Make sure you do your research on whatever treatment you choose to undergo, so you are aware of what to expect. Both Invisalign and FastBraces are good options if you want to sharpen your smile and start feeling more confident!

Things to consider:

●     Length of treatment - are you looking for a quick fix or a long-term investment?

●     The severity of misalignment - how severe is the cosmetic issue you want to fix?

●     Everyday impact - consider the day-to-day implications of both treatments to figure out which one suits you best

While both of these treatments are considered permanent, you should still be open to the fact that your teeth may still shift over time.

Been a Dr. Rez patient for around 4 years now. From initially needing a lot of work done to now just regular check ups and cleaning. I can confidently say it's been one of my best decisions. From being a very nervous patient to now quite enjoying my appointment (relatively anyway ha). Currently my therapist is Lilly, very ably assisted by Mel and they couldn't be more encouraging, thoughtful and nice. I get great advice and couldn't feel better looked after. Couldn't recommend more.
