For most people, the thought of orthodontics brings to mind time-consuming, expensive, and unattractive appliances like metal braces and even headgear. With instant orthodontics at Dr. Alhadef’s cosmetic dentistry studio, that is no longer the case!
Instant orthodontics can provide you with the same results that traditional, metal braces would provide but in a significantly shorter amount of time and without the use of awkward appliances. In just a few weeks, you can have beautiful, straight, white teeth!
Instant orthodontics is extremely thin, ceramic pieces of porcelain, called veneers, which are bonded over the front sides of your teeth. Not only are instant orthodontics incredibly natural looking, but also they can be made to perfectly match the color of the rest of your teeth, or in a whiter shade, giving you an even more dazzling smile!
Instant orthodontics are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth, and they are just as durable and stain resistant as your natural teeth. When placed by an experienced cosmetic dentist like Dr. Alhadef, there is really no downside to instant orthodontics.
Receiving instant orthodontics typically involves about four office visits over the course of a month. The first appointment is an initial consultation with Dr. Alhadef where he will determine if instant orthodontics are right for you. During this appointment, he will describe the procedure and will give you a timeline of the other visits in order to determine when your new smile will be complete.
During your second visit, your teeth will be shaped to accommodate the instant orthodontics, and a mold will be taken of your teeth so that the instant orthodontics can be custom created just for you. The mold of your teeth will be sent to a master technician, and after about two weeks, your veneers will be returned to Dr. Alhadef’s studio.
After your personalized instant orthodontics have arrived, you will return to Dr. Alhadef’s office so that they can be bonded to your teeth. The final appointment takes place a few weeks after you receive your instant orthodontics in order to make sure they have properly bonded to your teeth.
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.
What are porcelain veneers?
Instant orthodontics 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.
What is the Instant Orthodontic process like?
Receiving instant orthodontics usually requires about four visits to Dr. Alhadef’s Dallas, Texas cosmetic dentistry studio. The first appointment is an initial consultation where Dr. Alhadef 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. Alhadef 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.
Am I a candidate for Instant Orthodontics?
