If you would like to start summer with a bright and beautiful smile, then you may benefit from cosmetic dentistry. In today’s blog, your Garland, TX, dentist will talk about how we approach cosmetic care, and what options we can employee to not only remove teeth stains, but reshape the entire smile in as little as one visit.
Two Teeth Whitening Procedures
The process starts with a cosmetic consultation. During this procedure we carefully examine your smile with advanced digital technology, which allows us to identify the cause and assess the severity of your esthetic concerns. We also talk about your smile goals. Once we create your treatment plan, we will begin the process of improving smile beauty, often in one visit.
For example, if you have stained teeth, we have two different professional options. Both offer dramatic results that last for months to come, and help reduce the risk of tooth sensitivity. With our in-office option, we apply a special gel to the teeth and then activate it with a light, brightening teeth by multiple shades in one visit. For more severe staining, we could send you home with custom plastic trays and a bleaching gel. At home, you simply fill the trays with gel and wear them for between 30 and 45 minutes a day, with optimal results available after about a week!
Bonding and Contouring
For transforming smiles in one visit, we could also discuss bonding and contouring. Both can be done in the same visit, or in separate ones combined with other esthetic treatments. With bonding, we apply a special composite resin to the tooth. Metal-free, the material can be color-matched to blend with your smile. We then cure the material under a light and shape the tooth, before polishing it thoroughly. Bonding can repair minor chips and cracks, lengthen worn down teeth, and fill gaps between the teeth. The process also masks permanent teeth stains! With contouring, we sand and buff the outer structure to address minor chips, remove pits, grooves, and rough patches, and dull sharp or pointed teeth. We can also reshape overly large or misshapen teeth as well.
With porcelain veneers, we place thin restorations onto the front-facing sides of each tooth. The restorations instantly transform the beauty of each tooth, masking stains, closing gaps, and reshaping them. We also correct the appearance of minor misalignment too!
