Could Bonding/Contouring Improve Smile Beauty?

Teeth whitening isn’t the only option we have to improve your smile’s appearance. Our cosmetic treatment options also include bonding and contouring. In only one visit, our team can address issues with the shape and color of your teeth. In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist talks about cosmetic dentistry.

Assessing Your Smile

First, we need to take a close look at your smile. The initial dental exam is a chance for us to understand the cause and extent of your cosmetic issues. We then create a treatment plan to correct these concerns, so you can smile with confidence. For some, we could complete treatment in one visit with dental bonding and contouring. Often, addressing concerns like damaged teeth can provide health benefits too, keeping your smile free of tooth decay and dental infection. When you have cosmetic concerns with the appearance of your teeth, then please schedule a consultation with our team. We’ll find out if you benefit from bonding and contouring.

Dental Bonding

With dental bonding, our team will repair teeth and correct common cosmetic issues in only one visit. To begin, we will clean the teeth and remove any decay. We then etch the surface and apply the bonding material. We use the same composite resin that is employed as part of our tooth-colored dental fillings. This blend of acrylic and quartz-like particles can be shaded to blend with your smile and look natural. We then apply the material in several layers and sculpt it as the composite resin cures beneath a light. Finally, we polish the teeth for a brighter and more attractive appearance.

Dental bonding can mask permanent teeth stains, the kind that could resist traditional whitening treatments. We also fill in the unsightly gaps between the teeth, and lengthen the ones worn down by teeth grinding. Our team can repair minor cracks and chips too, and reshape malformed teeth too.

Dental Contouring

In the same sitting or in a separate visit, we could also correct esthetic concerns with dental contouring. The procedure involves gently sanding and buffing the outer structure to correct cosmetic concerns. For example, we can smooth out rough oaths, pits, and grooves in the outer surface, and correct sharp, pointed or jagged portions of structure. Our team can also correct the appearance of minor chips, and address overly large or misshapen teeth too.
