Instant Orthodontics — Correcting Overlapped Teeth With Porcelain Veneers
This article showcases the treatment of a female patient who sought the help of Tampa Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Saylor for Instant Orthodontics. She has overlapped & rotated front teeth and wanted a quick, attractive, and predictable solution. With Dr. Saylor’s expertise, they developed and accomplished a minimally invasive treatment plan for Instant Orthodontics.
Braces Vs. Porcelain Veneers
Traditional orthodontics (braces) take at least 12-18 months to achieve results like these (see photo below). Besides the lengthy treatment time, another downside to consider is the fact that both upper and lower arches need to have braces placed on them. Instant Orthodontics, which is utilizing veneers and/or crowns to achieve the illusion that the teeth are straight, allows a patient to have straight teeth in a few weeks, with no wires, brackets, or retainers involved! This particular patient decided to have 10 upper veneers bonded to give her the dazzling, movie star smile she always wanted!
A Lesson In Instant Orthodontics: How It’s Done!
These types of dental prostheses are extremely thin and delicate until bonded to the tooth structure. Even dropping them at the delivery appointment can be disastrous. The vacuum in the preceding photo is a great instrument for handling these tiny pieces of porcelain.
Instant Orthodontics requires great skill and an eye for natural esthetics on the part of the doctor. Color choice, shaping the teeth just right during preparation, and communicating how the finished veneers should look and fit to the dental laboratory are what determines the success of the case. Once these veneers are chemically bonded in the mouth, you will not be able to tell they are not the patient’s natural teeth.
The Results Are In — Instant Orthodontics Wins!
Accomplishing these veneers and achieving the esthetic we desired was very fulfilling for the patient and the dental team. This patient has waited a long time to upgrade her teeth and she hasn’t stopped smiling since she left the office! There are many solutions for correcting cosmetic dental problems.
