leawood bonding

When you have a chipped tooth, or esthetic imperfections with the shape and color of your teeth, we could offer improvement in only one visit! With dental bonding and contouring, we can provide cosmetic restoration with a conservative approach. In today’s blog, your Leawood, KS, dentist talks about how we repair smiles with bonding and contouring, and why this only requires a single visit for optimal results.

When to Seek Treatment

When should you consider an appointment? With cosmetic treatments like these, we can correct imperfections with the color and shape of your teeth, so you can smile with confidence once again. If you have teeth stains, especially intrinsic ones that don’t respond to traditional whitening methods, we can help with bonding. The procedure also reshapes malformed or damaged teeth, lengthens worn down teeth, and helps close gaps and black triangle spaces between the teeth. With contouring, we can smooth away pits, grooves, and rough patches in the surfaces of your teeth. Our team can also dull sharp, pointed, or jagged portions of tooth structure, and correct the appearance of minor chips too. The same procedure can also reshape overly large teeth too.

The Dental Bonding Process

With the dental bonding procedure, our team can use the same composite resin employed as part of our tooth-colored fillings. The metal-free blend of acrylic and glass-like particles can be shaded to blend with your tooth, and is biocompatible bonding with the structure for years to come. The process involves numbing the tooth to keep you comfortable as we remove any decay and clean the surfaces. We then etch the tooth if necessary and place the material in several layers. Our team will then sculpt and mold the tooth, completing the procedure by polishing it thoroughly. In one visit, we transform your smile!

Dental Contouring

With dental contouring we take a very different approach. We don’t have to add new material to the tooth. Instead, our team will gently sand and buff the outer structures to reshape the tooth and address common cosmetic concerns in only one visit. In some cases, we conduct both procedures in the same visit, or could combine them with other treatments like teeth whitening or porcelain veneers for a smile makeover.

If you have any questions about how we diagnose and treat cosmetic concerns in only one visit, then contact our team today to learn more. We want to help you smile with confidence again!
