What are Instant Orthodontics?

The Woodlands and Houston, TX

If you suffer from mild to moderate malocclusion, you may be a good candidate for instant orthodontics. Unlike treatment options that require months or years to correct bite issues, instant orthodontics utilize restorative and cosmetic dentistry options to produce a straight, strong, and attractive smile in just one to two weeks.

Better yet, this treatment can address issues such as deep staining, irregular tooth shapes, and uneven tooth sizes, which may not be corrected through other orthodontic options.

In many cases, Houston cosmetic dentist Dr. Scott Young can perfect a smile using porcelain veneers alone. Veneers are placed over the front of teeth to address issues such as uneven spacing, irregular sizing, and crooked presentation. The process for placing porcelain veneers takes approximately 14 days and requires three visits to our office. Compare this to 12 to 18 months and weekly visits for adjustments, and you can begin to see why veneers have earned the name of instant orthodontics.

In cases where porcelain veneers alone cannot perfect a smile, Dr. Young may recommend combining them with options such as dental crowns or bonding. This will be based on your specific needs and determined during your orthodontic consultation.

If instant orthodontics are not suited to address you level of malocclusion, Dr. Young would be happy to discuss options such as Invisalign® as well.
