No Time for Braces? Ask Poway Dentist about Instant Orthodontics

Poway and Rancho Bernardo, CA

A beautiful smile with straight teeth is a common goal among many. Although most people are not fortunate to naturally have a perfect looking smile, obtaining one could be within your reach, thanks to the artistic abilities of the best cosmetic dentist in Poway. Advancements in dentistry provide new treatments for correcting crooked, stained, or chipped teeth. Traditional braces could take years to give you a look you desire, but instant orthodontics takes just one day. Your leading cosmetic dentist in Poway, Dr. Nicol Cook, shares information about instant orthodontics and how this popular procedure could improve your smile in a single office visit.

What is instant orthodontics?

no time for braces

Instant orthodontics is a treatment that could provide you straight-looking teeth in one day. Dr. Cook offers cosmetic bonding, which is a handcrafted dental material that bonds directly to each tooth. The material makes it appear as though you have straight teeth, and it perfectly matches your natural tooth color blending with surrounding teeth seamlessly. For brighter results, cosmetic bonding can be placed over all teeth that are visible when you smile, and the composite can be chosen in a whiter shade. Cosmetic bonding is ideal for patients with minor tooth crookedness, tooth stains, and chipped front teeth. 

How does the process work?

Cosmetic bonding is a simple treatment that can be done in a single office visit. First, your Poway cosmetic dentist, Dr. Cook, will numb your mouth with a local anesthetic. A minimal amount of tooth structure may need to be removed to allow enough room to sculpt the composite material. In some cases, this can be done without the need for anesthetic. Once the material is applied to the tooth, it is pliable, allowing Dr. Cook, an Aesthetic Eye Winner, to expertly shape it to look just like a natural tooth. Once the material is ready to cure, a special light is used to harden the composite. Finally, Dr. Cook polishes the finished product to give it a more natural-looking appearance like your surrounding teeth.

What are the benefits of instant orthodontics?

Instant orthodontics provides several benefits. You can literally get a new smile in one visit to our Poway cosmetic dentist office. Plus, you won’t have to deal with getting braces, and the repeat dental appointments needed throughout orthodontic treatment. Patients also appreciate the natural-looking results, and affordability of instant orthodontics. Cosmetic bonding could be the answer to get the smile you want without sacrificing your busy schedule. Instant orthodontics could last for years with proper at-home oral care and regular visits for checkups and cleanings.

Who should get instant orthodontics?

Instant orthodontics is ideal for patients who suffer from slightly crooked, stained, or chipped teeth. For patients who have one or two teeth that are misaligned, or damaged, cosmetic bonding may be the right choice for you. However, you may need traditional orthodontic treatment if you suffer from severe tooth misalignment. To find out which option is best for you, contact our cosmetic dentist in Poway for a consultation.
