Did you know that we have cosmetic treatment options that can improve the beauty of your smile in as little as one visit? In today’s blog, your Garland, TX, dentist will be discussing the benefits of bonding and contouring, and how we can use these options to address multiple issues with the shape and color of your teeth. Find out how these procedures can help you enjoy a more attractive smile in as little as one visit.
The Bonding Procedure
With dental bonding, we begin by removing any decay from the tooth. We then gently etch the surface of your tooth. The material we use is in the process is called composite resin, a metal-free blend of glass and acrylic compounds. We apply the material in several layers, with the etched portions of the tooth keeping the composite resin in place as we cure the material. During the curing process, the dentist will mold and sculpt the material. We can actually shade the composite resin to better match the color of your tooth. Once we complete the procedure, we polish the tooth for a more natural appearance. The entire visit only takes one visit.
Contouring Your Smile
With contouring, we don’t add anything to the tooth. Instead, we gently sand and buff the tooth to reshape it. Again, the procedure only takes one visit and we often perform a contouring treatment in the same visit as a bonding procedure. Both options provide a convenient and minimally-invasive solution to a number of common esthetic smile issues.
Benefits and Smile Makeover Options
Both options can address a wide array of cosmetic problems. With bonding, we can repair minor chips and cracks, lengthen worn down teeth, close gaps between teeth, and mask permanent teeth stains, the kinds of discoloration that may not respond to teeth whitening. With contouring, we can reshape the tooth and remove any pits or grooves in the tooth surface. Our team can also dull teeth that are overly-pointed. We often use these procedures as part of a smile makeover, combining them with other cosmetic treatments to transform the smile. If you have any questions about either of these cosmetic treatment options, or if you would like a consultation to see which options will best address you smile, then contact out team today.
