There are a lot of factors that can mar the appearance of a smile, but probably none are as obvious as misaligned teeth. When teeth are crowding in on each other and fail to line up properly, they have a drastically negative effect on the appearance of the smile. Crooked teeth and a misaligned bite occur naturally in some patients as the teeth and jaw grow. There is nothing that can be done to prevent a crooked bite or teeth, but these conditions can be treated. The most common way to correct a crooked bite is through the practice of traditional orthodontics. At our practice, Dr. Jay W. Chrisman and Dr. David D. Wyse, two talented Bloomington cosmetic dentists, offer instant orthodontics as a faster, more convenient alternative to braces.
If you would like to know if you are a good candidate for instant orthodontics, ask yourself the following questions:
- Are my teeth crooked, uneven, or spaced either too far apart or too close together?
- Do I have healthy gums and generally good oral health?
- Do I dread the inconvenience and time that is involved with traditional orthodontic treatments?
- Do I have other aspects of my teeth that could benefit from treatment, such as the size, shape, or color of my teeth?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should see Dr. Chrisman or Dr. Wyse to discuss instant orthodontics and determine if you’re a good candidate.
How Do Instant Orthodontics Work?
Patients who use braces or other orthodontic treatments can expect to undergo treatment for a minimum of 12 months. With instant orthodontics, the appearance of your smile can be improved in a matter of weeks. Braces can correct a bite and straighten a crooked smile. Instant orthodontics can make your smile appear straight and even, and at the same time, improve the shape, size, and color of the teeth. Does all this sound too good to be true? You’re probably wondering how instant orthodontics work. The answer is actually quite simple. When patients come for instant orthodontics treatment in Bloomington, porcelain veneers are used to visually improve the patient’s smile.
Our dentists will take measurements and use digital scans to custom craft a dental veneer for each tooth that requires treatment. This is the most personalized dental treatment available. With porcelain veneers, we can create the ideal size and shape for each tooth to make sure that your smile looks its best. Depending on a patient’s needs, porcelain veneers may be made for the entire mouth, or only a few teeth. With instant orthodontics, porcelain veneers can give you the straight teeth you’ve been wanting with the added benefit of other cosmetic enhancements.
