Malocclusion is often best treated through orthodontic solutions such as Invisalign®. However, when minor issues are detracting from the function and appearance of your smile, long-term orthodontic treatment may be entirely uncalled for. If you are experiencing cosmetic issues with your smile, please contact Advanced Dentistry of Tarrytown online or by calling Dr. Wanda Mejia at (914) 332-4402 to schedule an instant orthodontics consultation today.
Benefits of Instant Orthodontics
Many people choose instant orthodontics because of the benefits it offers. With this procedure you can:
- Address many common orthodontic problems
- Have a straight smile in weeks, not months or years
- Correct multiple cosmetic complaints at once
- Guarantee an attractive result
- Little risk of relapse
Instant orthodontics is a cosmetic treatment that can be used to address smile issues including:
- Gaps and spaces
- Uneven sizes
- Irregular shapes
- Crooked presentation
With this solution, Dr. Mejia can greatly improve the appearance of your smile in a fraction of the time required for braces, and often address other cosmetic issues such as chips and cracks or severe discoloration in the process.
Instant orthodontics helps you avoid the problem many people experience with traditional orthodontics. Traditional orthodontics just move your natural teeth. If these teeth aren’t attractive, you can finish your orthodontic treatment–taking two years or more–and then find you still don’t like your smile. But with instant orthodontics, we can take care of problems like chipped, worn, or discolored teeth so that your smile will be beautiful.
What Are Instant Orthodontics?
While several treatments can be used for instant orthodontics, porcelain veneers tend to play the largest role. Veneers reshape your teeth to make them straight. There’s no need to move your tooth roots, which is what makes traditional orthodontics take so long. That’s also why there’s little risk of relapse with instant orthodontics. Your teeth won’t move back if they were never moved in the first place. This is the only kind of orthodontics that doesn’t require a retainer.
In addition to porcelain veneers, Dr. Mejia may choose other cosmetic and general treatments for the complete perfection of your smile. These can include dental crowns, tooth bonding, inlays and onlays, and dental fillings depending on your needs.
Instant orthodontics may not be appropriate if you have serious bite issues such as TMJ or bruxism.
