    • Emmy, thank you so much for asking and taking the time to look. Yes…..this really does work, BUT…….trust me, this is NOT the way you want to go if you’re 13 years old. I understand how you probably feel when thinking about braces; my older daughter is 14 years old and had her braces finished just a couple years ago, and she really didn’t like it. BUT, here are the issues with doing veneers/”instant braces” like this:

        Veneers do require some drilling on your teeth
        They’re MUCH more expensive
        They’ll have to be redone later in your life because nothing lasts forever
        Because you’re still growing up, there will be a lot of changes in your mouth that would end up making the veneers not look so good when you’re just 5-6 years older than you are.

      I’m sorry to have to disappoint you, but you really do NOT want to do porcelain veneers until you’re quite a bit older, and even then, Six-Month Braces is usually a better or as-good-as option. And I say that even though I love doing Smile Makeovers with Porcelain Veneers!

      Now, if you happen to be in the Charlotte, NC area, there are many great orthodontists who can make your experiences with braces a lot better than you think. The Orthodontists who treated both my wife and my older daughter (and they’ll get to treat my younger daughter when she’s old enough, too), are Drs. Marc Allen and Michael Webb. Great guys, a lot of fun, and they do a wonderful job. If you go see them, tell them I said Hi, ok?

  3. Just a quick comment on this blog post: it kind of amazes me how popular the idea of “Instant Braces” is when it comes to straightening teeth, but clearly it is of major interest – this post was made back in December of 2008, but it has been one of THE most popular posts on my entire blog since then!

    Porcelain veneers are a great option for straightening teeth IMO when a patient is also unhappy with the overall appearance of the teeth themselves. When the teeth look great but are just a bit crooked, then Six-Month Braces really does work much better, is less expensive, and doesn’t require eventual replacement.
