Bonding Means Cosmetic Improvement In Only One Visit

Dental bonding and contouring are cosmetic treatments that can take on multiple esthetic concerns at once, and in addition, can do so in only one visit! You could enjoy major improvement without the need for several visits. In today’s blog, Your Fort Bliss, TX, dentist talks about cosmetic improvement in only one sitting with bonding and contouring.

The Dental Bonding Process

With dental bonding, we will begin by numbing the tooth to ensure you’re comfortable as we remove any decay and thoroughly clean the tooth. We may etch the surfaces as well. We then prepare the composite resin material, which is a metal-free blend of acrylic-like and glass-like particles that can be shaded to blend with the rest of the tooth and the smile as a whole. We then apply it in several layers and shape the tooth as the composite resin cures beneath a light. The last step is to polish the tooth for a brighter appearance. The entire process only takes one sitting!

Contouring Your Smile

In the same visit or a separate one, we can take on minor cosmetic issues with the contouring procedure. With dental contouring, we don’t add new materials to the tooth. Instead, our team will gently sand and buff away small portions of outer structure to reshape the teeth and address common cosmetic complaints.

The Cosmetic Benefits

With dental bonding, we can mask permanent teeth stains that could otherwise resist teeth whitening, close gaps between teeth, and even hide black triangle spaces too. Placement could address malformed teeth and lengthen structures worn down by bruxism (teeth grinding). We can also repair minor chips and cracks too! With contouring, our team can smooth away pits, grooves, and rough patches in the outer surfaces. We can dull sharp, jagged, or pointed portions of the teeth, and even address the appearance of minor chips. The procedure can reshape overly large or malformed teeth too!

For many, these can offer a smile makeover in only one visit. If you have any questions about this experience, or if you want to see if they can help your smile shine, then contact our team today for a cosmetic consultation. Our team will examine your smile with advanced imaging technology so we can make a diagnosis and plan treatment to offer improved smile beauty. For many, bonding and contouring, and possibly the assistance of professional whitening, can help you smile with confidence again!
