Did you know that with composite bonding we can actually transform your smile’s appearance in only one visit? Whether you have permanent teeth stains or misshapen teeth, we can offer a transformation in only one sitting. In today’s blog, your Kansas City, MO, dentist will explain how we improve your smile in such a short amount of time!
The Composite Bonding Procedure
The procedure only takes one visit to complete. We begin by administering a local anesthetic to ensure you feel comfortable throughout the process. Next, we remove any decay and clean the tooth. We may also etch the surface too. The composite resin material is then prepared, a metal-fee blend of glass and acrylic particles that we color-match to blend with the tooth structure. We apply the material in several layers, and then sculpt and mold the tooth as the composite resin cures under a light. Finally, we polish the tooth for a more attractive appearance.
We could use dental bonding to repair minor chips and cracks, and to add length to teeth worn down by teeth grinding. Our team could also use the procedure to close gaps and black triangle spaces between the teeth. Permanent teeth stains, the kind that form beneath the enamel and may not respond to teeth whitening, could be masked instantly. Our team also reshapes malformed teeth too. In only one sitting, we instantly improve the beauty of your smile!
In the same sitting, we could also address minor esthetic issues with contouring. Instead of adding unique materials to the tooth, we actually sand and buff away outer structure. The process allows us to correct very minor chips, reshape malformed teeth, and fix overly large ones too. We can smooth out any pits, grooves, and rough patches in the teeth too.
We could also combine these with other cosmetic treatments for a smile makeover! We may whiten the teeth beforehand, so your repairs match your brightest possible smile. Our team could also use porcelain veneers for the front facing teeth, and reserve bonding and contouring for the rear and side teeth. If you have any questions about our cosmetic treatments, or if you would like a consultation to see which treatments are best for your smile, then contact our team today!
