When you have one or more imperfections with the beauty of your smile, you could benefit from cosmetic treatment. With our cosmetic treatments, we can help address these, and using bonding and contouring, we could do so in one visit. In today’s blog, your Garland, TX, dentist talks about how we improve your smile’s appearance!
Common Dental Imperfections
We often help people with dental discoloration, including stains too severe to be treated with the usual store bought options. We can also help people with exposed gaps between their teeth, or with teeth that have been worn down by teeth grinding. These cosmetic treatments also close gaps between teeth, repair cracked or chipped teeth, and reshape malformed or overly large teeth. We also correct sharp, pointed, or jagged teeth, and smooth out rough patches, grooves, and pits in the surfaces. For many, this could essentially offer a smile makeover in only one sitting! To find out which treatment is right for you, then schedule a dental exam so we can take a close look at your smile and assess these cosmetic issues, creating a treatment plan that is tailored to you.
The Dental Bonding Process
The dental bonding procedure involves adding new structure to the tooth in the form of composite resin. We use the same material in our metal-free and lifelike dental fillings. Blending glass and acrylic-like particles, this material can be color-matched to blend with surrounding structure. After we administer a numbing agent, we will clean the tooth and gently etch the surface. We then apply the material in several layers, molding the tooth as we cure the composite resin under a light. The last step is to polish the tooth thoroughly. In one visit, we can transform a tooth!
Dental Contouring and More
We could also contour the teeth in the same sitting. This doesn’t involve adding new structure to the tooth. Instead, we gently sand and buff the outer structure to correct minor esthetic concerns. We could combine these procedures with teeth whitening, removing stains and ensure your new treatments match your brightest smiles. We could also discuss porcelain veneers and clear aligners, addressing more severe esthetic issues. If you have any questions about this process, or about our cosmetic treatment options, then contact our team today to learn more. We look forward to helping you enjoy a beautiful smile in 2022!
