When you have cosmetic issues related to more than just the color of your teeth, you may need dental bonding and contouring. These two procedures help reshape and transform your teeth, and can do so in just one visit! In today’s blog, your Olathe, KS, dentists will talk about how we correct cosmetic blemishes in only one sitting!
Diagnosing Your Cosmetic Issues
First, we need to sit down for a cosmetic consultation. We want to hear what bothers you about your smile, and what helps you have for your teeth and gums. Next, we will perform a detailed exam using advanced digital technology, so we can understand the causes of these concerns and assess their severity. The next step is to plan your treatment. For some, we could offer a makeover that combines multiple cosmetic and even restorative treatments. However, for others a smile makeover is possible in only visit using dental bonding and contouring!
The procedure begins with the dentist administering a numbing agent. Next, we remove any decay from the tooth and may gently etch the outer surfaces. We prepare and place the composite resin material employed in the procedure. We apply it in several layers, and then the dentist shapes and molds the tooth. The composite resin is also used in our tooth-colored fillings, as the material is metal-free and can be shaded to match the color of surrounding tooth structure. The final step involves curing the material and then polishing the tooth for a more attractive appearance. The procedure is often used to repair minor chips and cracks, lengthen worn down teeth, and close exposed gaps between teeth, including black triangle spaces. The procedure could also mask permanent teeth stains as well, and reshape malformed teeth!
In the same visit, our team could also contour the teeth to address minor esthetic issues. The procedure involves gently sanding and buffing away outer structure instead of adding material to the tooth. The procedure could be used to reshape sharp or pointed teeth. Smooth jagged edges, and reshape malformed teeth. We could asp repair minor chips too, and remove rough patches, pits, and grooves in the outer structure too. If you have any questions about how bonding and contouring can help improve your smile, then please contact our team today. We would love to set up a cosmetic consultation and help you enjoy an improved smile in only one visit!
