What Is Instant Orthodontics?
Instant orthodontics is a treatment that uses porcelain veneers, which are thin, tooth-shaped prosthetics, to correct mild alignment issues instead of using traditional medal braces or other orthodontic treatments.
By using porcelain veneers, instant orthodontics makes it possible to improve the appearance of the smile in as little as two weeks instead of the 12 months or longer that is typically needed for traditional orthodontic treatments.
How Does Instant Orthodontic Treatment Work?
Instant orthodontic treatment works by adjusting the appearance of individual teeth with porcelain veneers. This makes it possible to make crooked teeth look straighter or even close large gaps between teeth.
During instant orthodontic treatment, the teeth are prepared by thoroughly cleaning the teeth and removing a thin layer of enamel. Impressions are then made of the teeth and used to craft each veneer, which can take a week or two to complete.
While waiting for the custom-made veneers to be finished, temporary veneers are placed. Once the customized veneers are finished, the temporary veneers are removed and the finished veneers are bonded in place and polished to complete the instant orthodontic treatment.
Instant Orthodontics Can Correct Many Issues
Instant orthodontics using porcelain veneers makes it possible for many of our San Antonio patients to enjoy straighter looking teeth, without the use of traditional medal braces or other orthodontic treatments. Instant orthodontics can correct many dental issues, including:
- Mildly crooked teeth
- Minor alignment problems
- Gaps between teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Undersized or oversized teeth
Although instant orthodontics can correct many alignment issues, those with more severely crooked or misaligned teeth may not be good candidates for instant orthodontics and may be better served by traditional orthodontics.
The Benefits of Instant Orthodontics with Porcelain Veneers
There are many benefits to improving the smile with instant orthodontics, making it a popular treatment for our San Antonio patients. Some benefits to be aware of when considering instant orthodontic treatment includes:
- Fast results: Instant orthodontics provides instant results when compared to traditional orthodontic treatments. As soon as the porcelain veneers are placed, patients will enjoy a more attractive smile instead of waiting months while wearing metal braces or orthodontic aligner trays.
- Pain free: Placing porcelain veneers is a painless process, unlike other orthodontic treatments that can cause discomfort due to pressure on the teeth and jaws.
- Easy aftercare: Caring for instant orthodontics with porcelain veneers is as easy as caring for the natural teeth. Simply following a good oral hygiene routine is often sufficient aftercare.
- Improved smile: Like traditional orthodontics, instant orthodontics can produce straighter looking teeth, but instant orthodontics can also cover chips, fractures, and improve the shape and size of the teeth.
