When you have several cosmetic concerns with the appearance of your smile, you may benefit from seeing us for cosmetic treatment. Often, we can use treatments like bonding and contouring to provide major transformation in only one visit. In today’s blog, your Kansas City, MO, dentist talks about the benefits of bonding and contouring.
The Dental Bonding Procedure
Dental bonding can offer major smile improvement in only one sitting. To begin, we will carefully examine your smile to assess the cause and extent of your cosmetic concerns. We then numb the tooth and remove any decay. We clean the tooth and etch the surfaces before we place the composite resin material. We also use this in our tooth-colored fillings, which provide lifelike repair for cavities. We apply the material in several layers and then as the composite resin cures beneath a light. We will sculpt and mold the tooth. Finally, we polish the tooth for a brighter appearance! In one visit, we offer a more attractive smile.
The Cosmetic Benefits
Dental bonding can be used to mask permanent teeth stains, the kind that could otherwise resist traditional teeth whitening treatments., We also fill unsightly gaps between the teeth and add length to teeth worn down by grinding and clenching. The procedure can reshape malformed teeth and also provide repair for minor chips or cracks too. For many, this could mean major improvement in just one sitting.
Contouring Your Teeth
In the same visit, our team could also contour the teeth. With dental contouring, we don’t add new material to the tooth. Instead, we will gently sand and buff the outer structure to offer a more attractive appearance, correcting minor issues in one sitting. For example, we can improve the appearance of a minor chip and reshape overly large or misshapen teeth too. The procedure can smooth out pits, grooves, and rough patches in the outer surface. Contouring can dull sharp, pointed, or jagged tooth structures too. For a smile makeover, we could whiten your teeth before we conduct these cosmetic procedures, so your new results blend with your brightest smile.
