When a tooth has issues that need more than just teeth whitening, we could offer a stunning improvement in one visit with bonding and contouring. In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist talks about how we can plan and implement major cosmetic changes in only a single visit with these treatment options.
When to Seek Cosmetic Treatment
When should you consider seeking treatment? We believe everyone should feel proud of their smile, and never hesitate to show off when they laugh or pose for a picture. If you have issues with the shape and color of your teeth, then consider a cosmetic consultation. Our team will take a close look at your smile with advanced imaging technology to assess the cause and extent of your esthetic issues. We can then create a treatment plan to correct them, often in as little as one visit!
We use dental bonding to correct a wide array of cosmetic issues. For example, this can close gaps between the teeth, mask permanent teeth stains that resist teeth whitening, and even lengthen teeth worn down by grinding or clenching. Our team can also repair minor chips and cracks and reshaped malformed teeth too. Treatment begins with our team numbing the tooth before we remove any decay and gently etch the surface. We then apply a composite resin material in several layers. This metal-free material can be color-matched to blend with the tooth. As we cure the material under a light, we will sculpt and mold the composite resin. The last step is to polish the tooth for a brighter appearance!
Our team can also contour the teeth. The contouring process means that our team will gently sand and buff the outer structure to reshape the teeth and correct esthetic issues. For example, we can remove pits, grooves, and rough patches in the outer structure. We can also address very minor chips, correctly large teeth, and even dull overly sharp, jagged, or pointed teeth too. Major improvements can be made in one visit, and we can often complete both bonding and contouring in the same sitting. For a smile makeover, we could combine them with professional teeth whitening or porcelain veneers. If you have any questions about our approach to cosmetic dentistry, then contact our team today to learn more.
