img28When most people think of orthodontics, they think of an expensive, time-consuming procedure involving braces, head-gear, and other embarrassing appliances. But that is no longer the case!

Instant orthodontics accomplishes the same results as traditional orthodontics, but in much less time and with no awkward appliances. Straight, even teeth can be yours, and in a matter of weeks!

What exactly is instant orthodontics? It’s when thin, ceramic shells of material – called dental veneers – are placed over the front surface of your teeth. They’re very natural looking, and are colored to fit in alongside your natural teeth – under the guidance of a professional cosmetic dentist, your new veneers will be virtually indistinguishable from real teeth. Plus, your new teeth will be just as durable as real teeth. There’s really no downside.

The typical Instant Orthodontic process involves three procedures over the course of about a month. The first appointment is an initial consultation with your cosmetic dentist. The procedure will be explained to you and a timetable will be determined. The second procedure is where the mould is made – the mould is used to create the veneers. During this second procedure, your teeth will be lightly shaved down (to accommodate the additional thickness of the veneer) and a mould is created. This mould is then sent to a dental laboratory. After approximately four weeks, you’ll return to the dentist and the veneers will be bonded to your teeth.

When it’s all over, you’ll have straight, even, natural-looking teeth! No braces, no head-gear and – most importantly – almost no wait.
