Use Fastbraces To Fix Spacing

Diastema, or spacing as its more commonly known, is a gap between two teeth in your mouth. Spaces or gaps between teeth are common, and during day to day living generally cause few problems. But, some people are not happy with these spaces and are looking for a solution to bring the teeth closer together.

There are a number of reasons people have spaces between their teeth, some of which may include:

Missing teeth Some people do not get all of their permanent adult teeth, or can have a tooth irreparably damaged during childhood which results in a gap in their smile.

Teeth that are too small for the space in your jaw bone If your jaw has more space, your teeth may not be large enough to fill it. Your teeth may spread out, causing one or more gaps.

A large labial frenum. This is the small flap that connects your upper lip to your gums. If it grows between your two front teeth, it may separate the teeth, causing a gap.

Dental habits Children who use a dummy or suck their thumbs beyond 4 years of age may develop gaps in their teeth.

Tongue thrusting If your tongue presses against your teeth when you swallow, this can cause gaps in the front teeth over time.

Using innovative and cutting edge teeth straightening treatments like Fastbraces, we can fix many common issues like crowding, gaps, high canines or an over bite.

Using Fastbraces to fix Crowding

Crowding occurs when there is simply not enough room in the mouth for all of teeth to erupt (come in) properly. If left untreated, crowding can worsen over time and result in severely overlapped teeth. This may increase risk of plaque accumulation, decay and periodontal disease.

Fastbraces – Case Study


Sometimes time is a factor when creating a smile, and we have to look for the best result we can achieve in the time available. This client only had a 5 month window for us to work with, meaning that we would have to accept some degree of compromise in the final result.

We fitted braces for 4 months only, then finished with bleaching, a little bit of bonding, and then veneers for the 2 little teeth at the front, resulting in a simply stunning smile. If 2015 is the year when you decide that a new smile is for you, call us on 01 6790625 to book your Free Fastbraces Consultation, or find more information here.

Fastbraces treatment starts from only €1,600 for upper or lower only, and €2,600 for both upper and lower. We also have payment plans available so that you can spread the cost over the duration of your treatment with us.

Fast Straightening with Fastbraces in Dublin 2

Are you self-conscious about your smile? Would you like to do something about your crooked or misaligned teeth?

Fastbraces could be the solution for you!


While teeth straightening through traditional orthodontics methods has been around for many years, more recently this whole area of the dental industry is going through a transformation, providing patients with more options than ever. At Pearl Dental we offer a fast, safe and affordable way to straighten your teeth called Fastbraces®, provided by your general dentist, in less time than traditional metal braces.

The Fastbraces® Technology patented bracket design uses unique, triangular shaped braces that allow for the use of just one super-elastic nickel-titanium wire during the treatment process. This brace technology works on an entirely different mechanical principle altogether. Historically, old braces would move the crown of the tooth in the first year, and the root of the tooth in the second year. The Fastbraces® Technology helps move the crown and root of the teeth at the same time, from the beginning of the treatment.

Having been around for over 20 years, thousands of consecutively treated patients and university research have shown that Fastbraces® are not only safe but offer many additional benefits. Patients can experience less discomfort and there are no more risks with Fastbraces® than those associated with traditional braces. Additionally, the fact that the braces are on for less time means that there is possibly less chance of tooth decay due to improper oral hygiene.

Treatment with Fastbraces® Technology can improve the patient’s lifestyle because treatment typically takes just a few visits to the dental practice. Less clinic visits mean less money spent, less journeys getting to and from the dental practice and less time off school or work. Another great benefit is the reduction of retainer usage. When the braces come off one needs to wear the retainers only 15 minutes a day in the shower, cleverly described as Fastbraces® “Tooth Shampoo”.

If you would like to know more about the Fastbraces® treatments we provide please do not hesitate to contact reception on 01 6790625 or email: to book your free Fastbraces® assessment with one of our trained specialists.



Orthodontic Treatment in Dublin 2

Teeth Straightening for Adults and Children

It is a known fact that if teeth are cared for and looked after from an early age, they will last longer and cause less problems over time. The same can be said for patients who get treated for misaligned or crooked teeth, the sooner the issue is addressed the better.

Most people know braces as the ‘train tracks’ or metal wires that are placed across teeth, that seem to stay on for a very long period of time. Thankfully with the advances in modern dentistry there are now alternative options, which are more aesthetically pleasing and can give results in a much shorter period of time.

Here at Pearl Dental we offer two cosmetic teeth straightening systems – CFast and Fastbraces. We provide both of these options to our patients as we believe they are the best systems on the market, and we have had great results with several of our patients.

For a short time only we are pleased to offer new and existing patients a free assessment to see if they are suitable for these advanced teeth straightening systems. Call the practice directly on 01 6790625 or email to book your appointment today.

Our clinic is centrally located on Nassau Street, making it convenient for patients who live and work around Dublin City Centre.

Fastbraces® – Fast, Safe, Easy and Affordable

Fastbraces Logo

We are very pleased to be able to share with you that Pearl Dental has recently become one of Ireland’s first accredited Fastbraces® providers. Fastbraces® was developed to straighten teeth differently, providing a fast, safe and affordable solution for patients.

Traditional braces move teeth into position in two stages, usually over a period of about two years. In the first year, the crown of the tooth is moved into alignment. In the second year, treatment addresses the position of the root of the tooth. However, the brackets used with Fastbraces® work on a different mechanical principle altogether. The patented system uses an innovative bracket and a specially shaped wire to correct the position of the root of the tooth, from the beginning of treatment. This combination is key in realigning the root and crown simultaneously.

Anatomy of a Smile Makeover

While a small number of people are blessed with a naturally great smile, in most cases we see, some dental treatment is required to get your smile looking its best. We tend to focus on 4 key elements:

Healthy Gums
Healthy gums are generally pink in colour and help to embellish the look of the teeth and mouth area on a persons face. When your dentist performs a checkup they observe your gums, taking special care to look out for inflammation, redness, bleeding and dark gums.

Filling Gaps and Fixing Teeth
Through the use of Dental Implants, Crown & Bridge and Veneers our dentists can help to fill the gaps in your smile, and fix teeth that have been worn down or damaged over time.

Teeth Whitening
At Pearl Dental we provide a dentist-administered teeth whitening service, to ensure your teeth look naturally white and stain free.

Teeth Straightening
Using the CFast Cosmetic Tooth Alignment system we provide our patients with teeth straightening to ensure that their smiles look as great as they can be.

Like most things, a solution can be found for any dental problem you have, the key thing is regular maintenance and cleaning of your teeth afterwards through our comprehensive general dental services.

You want a fantastic smile, so what’s stopping you?

Having practiced as a dentist in Dublin 2 for several years now, we have seen numerous cases of people who could benefit from teeth straightening. In most cases people opt to get their teeth straightened for aesthetic reasons, but there are other solid benefits to getting cosmetic tooth alignment:

– Improved Dental Function

When we mention dental function we are talking about the act of chewing, talking and other everyday functions that the teeth perform

– Easy Maintenance of Teeth and Gums

Generally speaking your dentist or hygienist will find it easier to clean, treat and maintain aligned teeth, and you will find them simpler to brush and floss while at home.

– Aesthetic Benefit

It has been shown through numerous studies that there is an improved psychological benefit to having clean and straight teeth, giving people improved confidence in their everyday life and relationships.


Our Cosmetic Tooth Alignment system of choice is CFast. There are 3 main reasons we chose to work with this system:

Fast – You will have straight front teeth in about 6 months
Discreet – The wires and brackets are almost invisible
Affordable – The short treatment time dramatically cuts the cost

Why not contact us today to see if the CFast treatment is right for you on 01 6790625, and to avail of a free assessment in our city centre clinic.
