Dental Bonding Repairs Your Teeth In One Visit

katy tx dental bonding

We recently talked about teeth whitening, and how we can tackle serious discoloration with dramatic results. But what if you also have cosmetic concerns with the shape of your teeth or with gaps between them? To address these concerns in as little as one visit, your Katy, TX, dentist could offer dental bonding.

Getting Started

First, we want to take a close look at your smile with a cosmetic consultation. Using digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, we will gather detailed images to assess the cause and extent of your cosmetic concerns. We can then choose the best treatment options to enhance your smile’s beauty, often in only one visit!

The Bonding Procedure

The dental bonding procedure helps address common cosmetic concerns with composite resin, the same material we use in our metal-free and tooth-colored dental fillings. This blend of glass-like and acrylic particles can be shaded to blend with your tooth and look natural. Placement is simple. We will numb the tooth to keep you comfortable as we remove any decay and clean it. We then gently etch the outer surface and apply the composite resin material in several layers. Next, we sculpt and mold the tooth as the material cures beneath a special light. The last step is to polish the tooth for a brighter appearance.

Cosmetic Benefits

Our team could use bonding to mask permanent teeth stains, the type that may not respond to teeth whitening. We could also close unsightly gaps between the teeth, and length the structure worn down by teeth grinding. We can repair minor cracks and chips and also correct misshapen teeth too. For many, we can offer dramatic improvement for their smiles!

Contouring

In the same visit, or a separate one, we can correct some cosmetic concerns with contouring. Instead of applying new material to the tooth, we will gently sand and buff away outer structure to boost the overall esthetics. We can use this to smooth out rough patches, grooves, and pits in the outer surfaces. Our team can correct overly large teeth too, and repair minor chips. We can also use the procedure to dull pointed, sharp, or jagged tooth structure.

If you have any questions about how we transform the beauty of your smile in only one appointment, then contact our team today to learn more. We want to make sure your smile shines in 2023 and beyond!
