Dental Bonding Corrects Teeth In One Visit

In our last blog, we discussed how teeth whitening helps brighten smiles. But what if you also have issues with gaps between teeth or misshapen ones, or even damaged teeth? We can offer cosmetic improvement in only one visit to address these! In today’s blog, your Sheridan, WY, dentist talks about correcting teeth in one visit with bonding and contouring.

Cosmetic Repair

How does a dental bonding procedure work? The process is very similar to placing a filling and in fact, uses the same material! Composite resin is a unique blend of glass-like and acrylic particles, metal-free and able to be color matched to blend with your smile. We begin by numbing your tooth and then removing any decay. We then clean the tooth and etch the surface. The composite resin is then prepared and placed in several layers. As we sculpt and mold your tooth, we cure the material beneath a special light. The last step is to polish the tooth for a brighter appearance and a smoother finish. In one visit, we can address your cosmetic concerns!

The Cosmetic Results

Dental bonding can be used to repair minor chips and cracks, or add length to teeth worn down by bruxism (teeth grinding). We can reshape malformed or misshapen teeth too, and even close embarrassing gaps between the teeth. Dental bonding can mask permanent teeth stains, the kind that may not respond to teeth whitening. For many, this offers a smile transformation, so you obtain stunning results in only one visit.

Dental Contouring

Along with dental bonding, we could use another cosmetic treatment to improve smiles in only one visit. Contouring doesn’t involve adding to your teeth, but instead gently sanding and buffing them to correct minor esthetic concerns. For example, we could use them to smooth our grooves, rough patches, and pits in the tooth surface, or to address minor chips. We can also correct pointed, jagged, or sharp portions, and address overly large or misshapen teeth too. We could use one or both of these procedures in the same visit, and for a true smile makeover, we could combine them with other cosmetic treatments, such as porcelain veneers or professional teeth whitening.

If you have any questions about dental bonding and contouring, or about any of our other cosmetic treatment options, then contact our team today to learn more. Make 2023 the year you obtain the smile of your dreams!
