leawood bonding and contouring

Did you know that we have unique treatments that can offer restorative repair in one visit with cosmetic results? We can do that with dental bonding and cosmetic contouring! In today’s blog, your Leawood, KS, dentist talks about how we restore smiles in one appointment with bonding and contouring.

When to See Our Team

Do you have esthetic issues with your smile that make you feel embarrassed? Instead of hiding your smile from the world, why not seek cosmetic treatment to improve the appearance of your smile? With a cosmetic consultation, we will carefully examine your smile to assess the cause and severity of your esthetic issues, so we can create a treatment plan to address these concerns. For many, we can offer major cosmetic improvement in only one visit using dental bonding and contouring.

Dental Bonding

The dental bonding procedure can repair teeth using the same composite resin that makes up our tooth-colored dental fillings. The material blends acrylic-like and glass-like materials, containing no metals. This is safe for all ages, and can bond with the tooth and be shaded to blend with the tooth and offer a lifelike appearance. The placement process only takes one visit. We start by numbing the tooth to keep you comfortable as we remove any decay and clean the tooth. We then etch the outer surface and apply the composite resin in several layers, sculpting it as the material cures beneath a light. The last step is to polish the tooth.

With the procedure, our team can mask the permanent teeth stains that would otherwise resist teeth whitening, and lengthen worn down teeth. We can repair minor cracks and chips, and also close embarrassing gaps between the teeth. In a single visit, we can correct the appearance of multiple teeth!

Cosmetic Contouring

We also have dental contouring, which can also address multiple esthetic issues in a single visit, but instead of adding to the tooth, we will gently sand or buff away outer structures to address common cosmetic complaints. For example, we can reshape overly large teeth, and correct the appearance of minor chips and breakage. Our team can also smooth out grooves, pits, and rough patches in the outer surface. If you have sharp, pointed, or jagged portions of your teeth, we can dull these.

If you have any questions about how we transform smiles with dental bonding and contouring, or if you would like to start your treatment now, then contact our team.
