Instant Orthodontics Questions
What are instant orthodontics?
For people who want a beautiful straight smile, but are unable to have braces, instant orthodontics can be used to provide the straight teeth they have always wanted. Instant orthodontics is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that uses porcelain veneers and crowns to create a straight, even, smile in just weeks.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells of porcelain that are permanently bonded to the front sides of your teeth to provide a straight, white smile. Porcelain veneers can be applied to multiple teeth on both the top and bottom rows.
When an experienced cosmetic dentist, like Dr. Kun, places them correctly. Porcelain veneers are very natural looking and are very durable and stain resistant, allowing you to eat and speak just as you would with your natural teeth.
What is the instant orthodontic process like?
Receiving instant orthodontics usually requires about four visits to Dr. Kun’s Whitehall, Pennsylvania cosmetic dentistry studio. The first appointment is an initial consultation where Dr. Kun will describe the entire process and answer all of your questions so that you are completely comfortable with the instant orthodontic process.
During the second appointment, you will actually begin the procedure. This will require that your teeth be lightly reshaped to accommodate the instant orthodontics, without making them look unnatural. A local anesthetic is used during this procedure to make sure you are completely comfortable. Once your teeth have been reshaped, a mold will be taken of them and sent to a master technician. The technician will create your instant orthodontics specifically for your smile. While this is being done, you will be provided with temporary veneers.
Once the instant orthodontics arrive, you will return for your third visit. During this visit, your temporaries will be removed, and the permanent instant orthodontics will be bonded in place. At this point the instant orthodontic procedure is essentially finished. Dr. Kun will ask you to return once more to make sure the instant orthodontics have bonded correctly.
From start to finish, instant orthodontics can be used to provide a straight white smile in about one month, as opposed to years with traditional braces.
