Instant Orthodontics with Porcelain Veneers By Dr. Pinnix on December 05, 2015

A smiling woman with straight, white teeth If crooked teeth have you feeling self-conscious about your smile, instant orthodontics with porcelain veneers may be right for you. Porcelain veneers can be used as instant orthodontics to create beautifully straight and even looking teeth without the need for metal braces. To find out if you're a candidate for instant orthodontics with porcelain veneers, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Charlotte, NC dentists John Pinnix IV and George Betancourt.

How Does Instant Orthodontics with Porcelain Veneers Work?

Instant orthodontics with porcelain veneers is a treatment designed to improve the appearance of crooked teeth, typically corrected by traditional orthodontics, without the need for metal braces or alignment trays - all in a fraction of the time. Unlike traditional orthodontics, which can take at least 18 months to complete treatment, instant orthodontics using porcelain veneers can be completed in as little as two dental visits. In some cases, it might also be a more affordable option

Once a patient is determined to be a suitable candidate for instant orthodontics, treatment can begin. Treatment for instant orthodontics with porcelain veneers usually requires two dental visits. During the first dental visit, the teeth are prepared by removing a thin layer of enamel from the front facing teeth. This allows room for the veneers to sit flush on the teeth.

Next, impressions are made of the teeth and sent to a dental lab so each veneer can be expertly crafted. Temporary veneers will be placed while the custom veneers are fabricated.

Once the porcelain veneers are finished, after about two to three weeks, a second dental appointment is needed to remove the temporary veneers and place the custom-made veneers using special dental cement.

Candidates for Instant Orthodontics with Porcelain Veneers

Instant orthodontics with porcelain veneers is a great option for those looking to improve the overall appearance of their smiles and is often incorporated into smile makeovers. Although many patients make suitable candidates for porcelain veneers, not all patients will qualify for instant orthodontics treatment. Those with major dental alignment issues and severe malocclusion generally aren’t good candidates for instant orthodontics and instead should opt for traditional orthodontics. Candidates for instant orthodontics with porcelain veneers include those with generally good oral health. You may be a good candidate if you:

  • Have mild malocclusion
  • Have gaps between the teeth
  • Are unhappy with the smile's appearance
  • Wish to avoid traditional orthodontics
  • Suffer from other dental issues like minor chips and discoloration, in addition to crooked teeth
