Hannibal Instant Orthodontics

Instant Orthodontics

Serving Hannibal and St. Louis, Missouri and Quincy, Illinois areas

Instant orthodontics is a procedure that uses porcelain veneers and dental crowns to close gaps and correct overlapping, crooked teeth. Instant orthodontics can accomplish in as little as two dental visits whsat used to take years with traditional orthodontics. Gone are the days of uncomfortable and unsightly metal braces that required those little rubber bands and then months or years of wearing a retainer.

Who is a Candidate?

Instant orthodontics might be the perfect solution for you if you have had braces or other traditional orthodontic work in the past. You may be a good candidate for instant orthodontics if:

In order for instant orthodontics to work, your bite must be in good shape. This is something that Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Janes will determine during your initial consultation. If either your bite or jaw is unhealthy, Dr. Janes will discuss what other course of treatment may be available to you.

The Instant Orthodontics Process

The whole process begins with your initial instant orthodontics consultation with Dr. Janes. He will carefully inspect your teeth and discuss your treatment options. In these early stages of the process, it is imperative for you to ask whatever questions you may have about the process. The ultimate success or failure of the process depends on your ability to be honest and open about your concerns, aesthetic goals, and expectations.

During your first instant orthodontics visit, your teeth will be conservatively prepared to accommodate the porcelain veneers. Then, a mold will be taken of your teeth; Dr. Janes will then send the mold to the laboratory, and the veneers will be custom made for you. The manufacture of the veneers takes approximately two weeks.

During your second visit, the porcelain veneers will be bonded to your teeth. Dr. Janes will place them temporarily. Then, you and he will assess how they look and feel, and he’ll make any minor adjustments that are necessary. When you’re both satisfied, he will bond them permanently and they will then be a permanent part of your teeth and mouth.
