Teeth whitening treatments are not the only option we offer to boost smile beauty. With dental bonding and cosmetic contouring, our team can offer major smile improvement in only one visit. In today’s blog, your Katy, TX, dentist talks about the benefits of dental bonding and contouring.
Improvement In One Visit
Dental bonding involves repairing teeth with composite resin, a unique blend of glass and acrylic-like particles that can be shaded to blend with your smiles seamlessly. The placement process involves numbing your tooth so you’re comfortable as we remove any decay and clean and etch the outer surface. We then apply the prepared material in several layers, sculpting and molding the tooth as we do. Finally, we cure the composite resin under a special light. The last step is polishing the tooth for a brighter appearance.
The bonding procedure can be used to mask teeth stains, repair cracked, broken, or chipped teeth, and closing embarrassing gaps between the teeth. Our team could also lengthen worn down tooth structure and reshape malformed teeth too. For some, this could tackle multiple cosmetic concerns at once!
We don’t just use lifelike composite resin in our bonding procedures either. Our team can also employ them to treat tooth decay, offering a filling that is metal-free and that blends with the smile. The material is also safe for all ages, from kids to adults, and provides biocompatible treatment that bonds with the tooth and can last for years to come. Again, the placement only takes one visit, and prevents your decay from becoming an infection that threatens smile stability!
Contouring Your Teeth
In the same visit, we can also contour your teeth to address minor esthetic issues with the surface and shape of your teeth. The process involves gently sanding and buffing the outer structure to correct these cosmetic issues. For example our team can smooth out rough patches, pits, and grooves in the tooth structure. We can also correct misshapen teeth and dull sharp, pointed, and jagged tooth structure. The procedure can also address the appearance of minor chips, and reshape overly large or malformed teeth too.
If you have any questions about cosmetic dentistry, or if you want to find out if these procedures are right for you, then please reach out to our team today to learn more. We want to help you obtain an attractive smile that makes you feel comfortable.
