cracked toothYour smile is one of your greatest assets. Not only does it help you achieve routine tasks such as biting, chewing, and eating, but a vibrant smile is often indicative with proper oral health practices and a greater zest for life. Indeed, your oral health is of the utmost importance to take care of and consider, but that does not mean that surface-level blemishes are issues that have to go by untreated. In today’s blog, your Leawood, KS dentist discusses the influence of surface-level chips and cracks on your oral appearance and shares how bonding and contouring can help.

Dealing with a Chip or Crack?

Smile blemishes are the biggest detriment to an otherwise perfect smile, and for many, they may be just enough to prevent a person from attending social events or revealing their authentic smile. Moreover, dissatisfaction with one’s own smile has been shown to contribute to greater levels of melancholy and depression. As such, our team highly recommends that once you have your oral health under control, seeking cosmetic care can help.

Cosmetic dental care consists of any treatment that aims to address surface-level blemishes such as chips, stains, cracks, gaps, and more. Though stains may be the most common of blemishes, that does not mean they are the only concerns to worry about. As a matter of fact, cracks and chips can detract even more from your grin. Fortunately, dental bonding and contouring can help.

You see, bonding and contouring is a form of cosmetic dentistry that addresses chips, cracks, and even gaps by applying a composite resin material to the affected site, then curing the material. To learn more about this process and how our team can help, give our office a call today.

The Science of Composite Resin

When you come in for your cosmetic treatment, our team will take care to properly assess your smile and your needs. To begin, we will apply a composite resin material to the affected site and shape or contour it to satisfaction. In other words, we will smooth out the material and apply it as needed until the affected area is virtually seamless. After this, we will cure the material using a special light, which causes it to solidify permanently. And that is it! Contact our team to learn more today.

Providing a Seamless Finish

Dental bonding and contouring is renowned for its lifelike benefits, as the composite resin material is designed in such a manner that it can be shade-matched to the natural hue of your grin. This means that, from a distance, most people will not even be able to tell you received treatment at all!
