Cosmetic Bonding Restores Your Smile

Did you know that cosmetic dentistry can help repair teeth and mask esthetic imperfections in only one visit? With dental bonding and contouring, our team can offer one-visit cosmetic treatment for patients young and old. In today’s blog, your Shrewsbury, MA, dentist talks about the benefits of dental bonding and contouring.

Your First Consultation

When you have imperfections with your smile that make you feel embarrassed, don’t hide from the world. Instead, talk to our team about cosmetic dentistry. Along with treatments like teeth whitening and porcelain veneers, we can also offer treatments that provide major results in only one visit, so you leave with a transformed smile after a single sitting. For some, this provides a cost-effective way to improve the smile and address the concerns that have caused embarrassment in the past. To start, we will conduct a consultation, examining your smile to assess the factors behind your esthetic issues and to create a treatment plan to address them. With bonding and contouring, we can offer major improvement in just one visit!

The Dental Bonding Process

With dental bonding, our team will use composite resin to treat your esthetic concerns in one sitting. Composted resin is a material that contains no metal and that can be shaded to blend with your tooth. The material is safe for patients of all ages, and can be used to provide lifelike fillings too. For kids and adults alike, this can address common smile imperfections at once. The treatment process is a very simple one. Our team will start by numbing the tooth being treated and then gently removing any decay and cleaning the surfaces thoroughly. We then etch the surfaces so the composite resin can better cling to the tooth as the material cures. We prepare the composite resin and shade it to match your tooth. We apply the material in multiple layers and as we cure it beneath a light, we will sculpt and mold the tooth. The last step is to polish the tooth for a brighter appearance. In one visit, we can offer treatment for minor and extensive cosmetic concerns.

The Cosmetic Potential

If you have a chipped or cracked tooth, we can address minor damage with bonding. Treatment then prevents the onset of tooth decay and infection, so you avoid oral health issues and threats to your smile’s appearance and stability. Our team can also reshape malformed teeth and aid in the improvement of bite balance and chewing function too. The procedure can close embarrassing gaps between teeth, and even lengthen tooth structure that has been worn down by teeth grinding. If you have permanent teeth stains, the kind that typically don’t respond to teeth whitening treatments, we can mask them completely.

Dental Contouring

In the same visit as your bonding procedure, or in a separate one, we can offer another cosmetic treatment that provides results in only one visit. Dental contouring can address multiple concerns at once without the need of adding new material to the tooth. Instead, we will gently sand and buff the outer structure to address these concerns. For example, our team can smooth out any pits, grooves, and rough patches in the outer surfaces. We can also dull sharp, jagged, or pointed tooth structure too. The procedure can address overly large or misshapen teeth, and even correct the appearance of minor chips.

If you have any questions about cosmetic dentistry, or about bonding and contouring in particular, then please contact our team today. We look forward to addressing your questions and concerns, and to also scheduling a consultation to see which cosmetic treatments are right for you. Along with the ones discussed in this blog, we can also offer professional teeth whitening to brighten smiles by up to eight shades, or porcelain veneers to provide a makeover in as little as two visits.
