When most people think of straightening their teeth, they think the only option is traditional orthodontics, or braces, which can be an expensive, time-consuming procedure involving headgear or other embarrassing appliances.
But that is no longer the case! If you've ever wanted to straighten your teeth but couldn't stand the thought of braces, instant orthodontics may be for you. Instant orthodontics involves making crooked teeth appear straight or closing spaces between teeth using porcelain veneers. The process takes 2 to 3 weeks, rather than months or years, and provides you with the appearance of straight teeth. This form of treatment in some cases can provide a more esthetic result than orthodontics alone.
How Does Treatment Work?
Instead of wearing braces, LVI Fellow Dr. Warr shapes your teeth and applies a thin porcelain veneer. Uneven or crooked teeth can be recontoured and straightened so that they appear and function like straight teeth. The extent to which this can be done will depend on the degree of correction you would like to achieve.
Sometimes the best treatment may involve a combination of orthodontics and porcelain veneers. Instant orthodontics can vary from a simple space closure to a complete realignment.
Under the guidance of a professional cosmetic dentist, your new porcelain veneers will be indistinguishable from real teeth.
Advantages of Instant Orthodontics
- Porcelain veneers are practically instant compared to living with painful braces for years!
- Your teeth are ideally shaped when you use veneers. Braces only straighten teeth. They don't make them look gorgeous as well.
- If you've been unsuccessful in whitening your teeth with brushing or bleaching, instant orthodontics can give you that brighter smile.
Instant orthodontics allows Warr Dental to provide you with the beautiful, straight, white teeth you have always wanted in as few as two visits. Braces can cause slobbery saliva, stains, and varying degrees of discomfort. Why go through all of that when instant orthodontics can give you the same look (or probably better) almost instantly?
