Misalignment of your teeth, or spaces between them, can make your smile less than perfect and make you self-conscious about your appearance. Many adults with minor imperfections in their tooth alignment would like to correct their teeth, but don’t feel the minor issues to be worth the cost and discomfort of traditional orthodontics. Adults also are often unwilling to undergo treatment with metal braces.
For adults with minor misalignments or spaces between the teeth, Dr. Norman Huefner offers an innovative approach called instant orthodontics in his Orange County, California offices. Instant orthodontics makes use of porcelain veneers to correct the appearance of your teeth, providing dramatic improvements to your smile without the use of uncomfortable and most costly metal braces.
How Instant Orthodontics Works
During an initial consultation, you’ll speak with Dr. Huefner about what you’d like to accomplish with instant orthodontics, and what you’d like your smile to look like when you’re done. An evaluation of the condition of your teeth will determine if instant orthodontics can help you achieve your goal, or if your case would be better served by traditional orthodontic approaches.
After determining that the instant orthodontics procedure is right for you, Dr. Huefner will make molds of your teeth from which your porcelain veneers will be constructed. Your porcelain veneers will be custom made and carefully color-matched so they’ll be virtually indistinguishable from your other teeth. Or, if you prefer a whiter shade, as many of our patients have requested, you and Dr. Huefner can select that shade together.
Through careful design and placement of the porcelain veneers, your slightly crooked or improperly spaced teeth will be transformed into a white, straight, healthy smile you can be proud of. Best of all, placement of the porcelain veneers only takes a few office visits rather than months or years of maintenance.
In addition to porcelain veneers, we also offer Invisalign® treatment, which is another ideal alternative to traditional metal braces.
