Dental Bonding Improves Teeth In One Visit

cleveland dental bonding

Did you know that we have cosmetic dental treatments that could offer stunning results in only one visit? In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist talks about dental bonding, and how we can use this procedure to offer improvements in the shape and color of the teeth, all in a single sitting.

The Initial Visit

To get started, we want to see you for an intimal visit. During this appointment, we will talk about your smile, particularly your concerns and what results you would like to see. Next, our team will take a close look at your smile with advanced digital imaging, including digital x-rays and intraoral cameras. The exam enables our team to assess the cause and extent of your cosmetic concerns, so we can choose the most appropriate treatment option. For some, this could mean major transformation in only one visit!

Dental Bonding

The dental bonding procedure actually uses the same composite resin our tooth-colored fillings do. This material is metal-free, safe for all ages, and can be color matched to blend with the tooth. We first numb the tooth and remove all decay present, and then clean and etch the surfaces. We prepare and place the material in several layers. Our team will next sculpt and mold the tooth as we cure the composite resin beneath a special LED light. The last step is to polish the tooth for a brighter appearance.

In one visit, we can mask permanent teeth stains that may not otherwise respond to teeth whitening. We also close embarrassing gaps between the teeth, and repair minor chips and cracks as well. We can reshape malformed teeth and lengthen the ones worn down by teeth grinding. Treatment could also be combined with teeth whitening to match your brightest smile!

What About Contouring?

In the same sitting, we could also address minor esthetic issues with contouring, in which we don’t add to the tooth, but instead buff and sand the outer structure. The procedure only takes a few minutes, and could be used to improve overall bite balance and chewing function, and dull sharp, pointed, or jagged portions of tooth structure. Our team could also smooth rough patches, pits, and grooves in the outer structure. The procedure also reshapes minor chips and could address overly large or misshapen teeth.

If you have any questions about dental bonding or contouring, then contact our team today to learn more. We want to transform your smile!
