Dental Bonding Means Cosmetic Care In One Visit

When your smile has multiple cosmetic issues with the shape and color, then we could use a single procedure to offer major improvement in one appointment. Dental bonding can transform your smile and offer a solution for multiple imperfections at once. In today’s blog, your Sheridan, WY, dentist talks about dental bonding and cosmetic contouring.

The Cosmetic Procedure

The dental bonding procedure actually uses the same composite resin material as our tooth-colored dental fillings. The material is metal-free and safe for all ages. To begin, we will numb the tooth receiving treatment and then if needed, remove any decay and clean the surfaces. We also etch the surfaces before applying the composite resin, which we shade to blend with your smile seamlessly. The composite resin is applied in several layers, and we sculpt the material as it cures beneath a special light. The last step involves polishing the tooth for a brighter appearance.

The Esthetic Benefits

Dental bonding can offer a full array of cosmetic improvements for your smile. For example, we can mask permanent teeth stains that may not respond to teeth whitening treatments. Our team can also close embarrassing gaps between teeth, or use bonding to repair minor chips and cracks. We can lengthen teeth worn down by bruxism, and also correct misshapen ones too. We could whiten the teeth beforehand so your results match your brightest possible smile as well.

Tooth Contouring

Our team could also contour the teeth in the same visit, which also addresses multiple cosmetic imperfections but without adding new material to the tooth. Instead, we gently buff and sand away outer structure to correct these issues. For example, we can improve the appearance of minor chips or smooth out pits, grooves, and rough patches in the outer structure. Our team can dull portions of structure that are sharp, pointed, or jagged, and also correct malformed or misshapen teeth too. We could use both bonding and contouring in the same sitting, and again, combining them with other cosmetic treatments to offer a smile makeover.

If you have any questions about how we use cosmetic dentistry to help you smile with confidence again, or if you’re ready to schedule a comprehensive consultation and see which is right for your smile, then contact our team today to learn more. We want you to never hesitate to show off your smile, and often these improvements can help the health and function of the smile too.
