It is not uncommon for a patient to dream about their perfect smile - with teeth that are straight and even. Yet, a common deterrent that makes a patient think twice is the many months and sometimes years of orthodontic treatment involved. Instant Orthodontics is the artful application of porcelain veneers. It does not require any moving of your teeth and it is one of the fastest ways of achieving perfectly straight and natural looking white teeth in less than two weeks!
For many adults , orthodontics (braces) are just not an option . They do not want to invest the time and effort to make their teeth straight. If you are looking for a fresh start with a new smile, Instant Orthodontics may be the answer for you! Dr. Alexandre Kostirko, a Toronto dentist, has been practicing Instant Orthodontics at his Bloor West Smiles dental clinic for over 25 years. It is a cosmetic dental procedure that uses porcelain veneers to not only make your teeth straight, but also white and beautiful.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain Veneers are very thin shells of stain resistant porcelain that are designed to fit over the front portion of your teeth. They are semi-translucent, meaning that light passes through them in a manner very similar to your normal tooth structure.
Problems That Dental Veneers Can Treat
- chipped teeth
- cracked teeth
- teeth gaps
- crooked/overlapping teeth
- deeply stained teeth
Ideal Candidate for Porcelain Veneers
The best candidate for porcelain veneers are those that suffer from any of the above dental issues. They should be in overall good health and not suffer from any serious dental problems that require restorative care. In some cases, a patient may be suffering from serious chips, cracks , malocclusion or misalignment. In these cases, other traditional restorative treatments such as dental crowns or orthodontics would be better suited to treat the needs of the patient. Dr. Alexandre Kostirko will discuss all options at length during your initial consultation.
Why Are Porcelain Veneers Considered Instant Orthodontics
The reason that porcelain veneers are referred to as instant orthodontics is because the results are as dramatic as orthodontic treatment. The advantage being that there are no brackets, wires or bands involved in the treatment and porcelain veneers can be placed in 2-3 visits.
