If you would like to correct problems with the shape of your teeth, options are available to build up your smile. By exploring dental bonding and contouring services, you can receive an improvement in as little as a single visit to our office. In today’s blog, your Garland, TX dentist discusses cosmetic repairs with dental bonding and contouring.
You may be surprised to learn how powerful a dental bonding treatment can be in transforming your smile. For problems with chipped teeth, lost height due to grinding, or extensive stains that do not respond to other whitening treatments, dental bonding can return the desired shape and color of a problem tooth. Using the same tooth-colored material that we place when removing a cavity, bonding places a composite resin on the surface of your tooth to build up its shape. A local anesthetic provides your comfort during this quick procedure that is completed in a single visit. By applying a special light to harden your resin, we can then sculpt the bonding agent to match your natural teeth.
Dental contouring complements bonding by taking a subtractive approach to reshaping teeth. Instead of adding material, we use special tools to remove imperfections and smooth out the surface of your teeth. If you have a tooth that is too long or has a jagged surface, this procedure can provide a more pleasing esthetic appearance. When correcting multiple teeth, we could perform this treatment at the same time as providing dental bonding. Gently sanding the surface of your tooth could also remove a minor chip from its top layer. Before performing any contouring action, we first take x-rays of each tooth to ensure that your enamel is thick enough. We will not remove surface enamel if we believe your tooth to be too thin.
We also offer contouring surfaces for gums that become uneven. With soft tissue sculpting, we apply a diode laser to straighten your gums painlessly with rapid recovery.
Additional Treatments For Improving Your Smile
When meeting to discuss options to enhance your smile, we could provide additional cosmetic treatments beyond bonding and contouring. For stains that appear in your enamel, we offer teeth-whitening solutions that return your bright, white natural smile. Porcelain veneers also offer a versatile solution for correcting multiple imperfections in a single treatment. A combination of these treatments could provide an entire smile makeover.
