Traditionally, orthodontic treatment has taken 24 to 36 months to complete. Even options like Invisalign® – which significantly reduce treatment time – can require one to two years. Moreover, straightening teeth with wires and brackets or aligner trays is not necessary in every case, making the treatment time all the more unfortunate. This is why Grand Rapids dentist Dr. Jerry Mulder often suggests instant orthodontics for patients with mild or primarily cosmetic bite issues.
Instant orthodontics refers to the straightening of teeth with porcelain veneers. Tooth-colored and fully customized, veneers are able to correct the appearance of teeth that are crooked, irregularly shaped or sized, and gapped. In addition, veneers address cosmetic issues such as severe discoloration – issues that cannot be corrected with traditional orthodontia.
Dr. Mulder utilizes CEREC technology to create porcelain veneers, enabling him to complete your procedure during a single office visit.
If you are unhappy with your bite but not interested in traditional orthodontic options, please contact A Life of Smiles online or by calling 616.458.0631 to schedule an appointment today. Dr. Mulder provides instant orthodontics for good candidates living in Grand Rapids, Holland, Muskegon, and surrounding Michigan communities.
