Instant Orthodontics - Cosmetic - Veneers/Crowns
Sacramento, Roseville, Rocklin, Folsom, and Citrus Heights, California
With instant orthodontics, you can transform a crooked, unattractive smile into one that is straight in just several visits as opposed to years.
The word “orthodontics” as it refers to instant orthodontics is actually misleading—the procedure does not involve any orthodontic work. Rather than moving your teeth to straighten them, instant orthodontics alters the state of your natural teeth. This means your roots are left in place, and dental crowns or porcelain veneers are mounted on top of your real teeth.
Porcelain veneers are the fastest and one of the most effective ways to align or change the shape of your teeth. These thin strips of porcelain are bonded to the front sides of your teeth, and look and function the same way your natural teeth do.
One difference between porcelain veneers and braces is that with veneers, your natural teeth must be prepared to fit the restorations. This forever changes the shape of your problem teeth, as they need to be roughened and contoured so the veneers can be secured into place. However, the results are so astounding; you will never need your natural teeth to show ever again. Another benefit of veneers is that you can choose just how white you want the color to be. This leaves you with a smile so natural that people will not notice they are not your real teeth.
Dental crowns are also used to fix crooked or uneven teeth. Placed over the top of your problem tooth, dental crowns can “instantly” correct your teeth, without the use of traditional metal orthodontics.
While dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials, Dr. Miller uses only the best, most durable materials: porcelain and porcelain fused to metal. Both these options will have you smiling in no time.
Am I a good candidate?
You may be a good candidate for instant orthodontics if you:
- Are unhappy with the appearance of your smile
- Have crooked or uneven teeth
- Have gaps between your teeth
- Are embarrassed to laugh or smile
- Had braces as a teenager, but still do not like the appearance of your teeth
While they will not last forever, with good care, your instant orthodontics will last for a number years. Dr. Miller estimates that porcelain veneers will average a life between 10 and 15 years. If you avoid clenching your teeth, biting hard items and minimizing staining influences like coffee, red wine and tobacco, your new smile should look stunning for at least a decade.
