Consider instant orthodontics to address cosmetic imperfections of the smile
- Posted on: Oct 15 2019
Many patients come to Dr. Lindsey F. Marshall of Ardmore, PA to ask about cosmetic treatments. One of the most popular treatment options for enhancing the smile is that of instant orthodontics. Instead of using traditional braces or alternatives such as Invisalign to straighten the dental arch, instant orthodontics uses a special porcelain facing called a veneer to achieve results immediately.
What are “instant orthodontics?”
Without the use of metal braces or aligner trays, patients can instantly improve the appearance of their smile with instant orthodontics. This is the use of one or more porcelain veneers to cover a misaligned tooth. The results are natural-looking, fast, and affordable.
Why choose instant orthodontics?
Instant orthodontics isn’t for everyone. To determine if a patient is a proper candidate, it is best for patients to book a consultation with Dr. Lindsey F. Marshall. Some patients who have several teeth that need realignment may still be better off considering more traditional means of treatment such as conventional orthodontics or aligner tray therapy. However, if just one or two teeth near the front of the smile need to be addressed, porcelain veneers can help. These can also be effective if patients have a small gap between their front teeth.
What is the process of obtaining a new smile with instant orthodontics?
First and foremost, patients need to book a consultation and evaluation with their dentist to determine if they are an appropriate candidate. If patients have been deemed to be appropriate for instant orthodontics, the teeth that will be covered will need to be prepared. The dentist removes a very small portion of the tooth’s enamel from the front of the tooth before taking impressions. These impressions are then sent out to a dental laboratory for the fabrication of the veneers, which are created to match the existing teeth in shape, color, and size. Patients return for the bonding of the veneers on their teeth to achieve their dream smile!
