My journey at 43 in finally getting my great American smile πŸ™‚

Today I got my braces. Now like most of you, I faced sooo many options. Invisalign, Smile Club Direct and the likes, Fast Smile, traditional brackets etc..

Now here are the reason I chose Fast Smile via my dentist Dr Freddy Wang from Tansey St, Dental in Beenleigh:

1- He is awesome

2- Price was extremely reasonable in comparison to the rest of the products

3- Offered regular face to face updates (and let’s face it, who wants to trust an invisible random dude behind a screen to tell you that your overbite, underbite, cross bite, teeth, jaws or gums aren’t going south before the 12 week magical (and perhaps slightly unrealistic) number?

4- Clear and barely visible from a distance. So as a grown up like myself, it was quite comforting

5- Proper braces so they can rotate beyond the max 40 degrees of clear aligners

6- Called Fast smile for a reason!!! Treatment usually between 6 to 9 months. Mine will be around 9 months. Even if a little longer, it’s way under the usual 18 to 24 months of traditional braces

7- Can’t remove them!! TA-DA. Yes. Because I would have. Burnt them at the stake. These things hurt! So having them glued to me (and you) ensures compliance.


I’ll be updating my journey via youtube updates regularly. I hope you’ll follow me and share your own journey or your questions as we go. Actually, scrape that. If any questions about Fast Smile and all its benefits, please contact Tansey St Dental in Beenleigh for a consultation.
