Did you know we have two different cosmetic treatments that can repair and reshape smiles in only one visit? Dental bonding and contouring are effective and minimally invasive cosmetic treatments, which can make major changes to your smile’s beauty. In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist talks about dental bonding and cosmetic contouring.
Dental bonding can reshape the teeth, and employs the same composite resin that we use in our tooth-colored dental fillings. The placement process only takes one visit to complete, and we can tackle multiple cosmetic concerns. Our team simply numbs the tooth and removes any decay. We etch the outer surface and apply the composite resin in multiple layers. We shade the material so it blends with the tooth and surrounding teeth. As we cure the material underneath a special light, we will sculpt and mold the tooth. Finally, we polish it thoroughly.
Our team can use dental bonding to mask the permanent teeth stains that could resist traditional teeth whitening, or to correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you have a straighter looking smile without braces. The procedure can reshape malformed teeth, close gaps between teeth, and lengthen worn down structure too. The procedure can also repair minor cracks and chips too.
Dental contouring is done in the same visit, but uses a different approach. We don’t add new materials to the tooth, instead we sand and buff away outer tooth structure to reshape the smile. The procedure could be used to smooth out rough patches, pits, or grooves in the outer structure. We could also correct sharp, pointed, or jagged portions of structure, or correct the appearance of minor chips. The procedure can correct misshapen or overly large teeth too.
Starting Your Treatments
If you want to see major changes to your smile this summer, then give us a call. We will ask you about your concerns and then take a close look at your smile to assess the cause and severity of your cosmetic concerns. Next, we create a treatment plan that corrects these concerns, possibly in as little as one visit. A smile that makes you feel great and inspires confidence is possible. In addition, addressing issues like dental misalignment could help reduce the risk of complications like tooth decay and dental infection.
