If you have issues with more than just teeth stains, but the shape of your teeth, then you may need cosmetic care with bonding and contouring. With these treatment options, your Newhall, CA, dentist can actually improve the overall health and beauty of your smile in only one visit!
With dental bonding, we repair and restore teeth in only one sitting. Instead of using metal material or restorations, we use a metal-free composite resin. In fact, the same material makes our tooth-colored dental fillings possible too. We prepare the material and then tint it to blend with the rest of your tooth. We then remove decay from the tooth, and clean and dry it. We may also etch the surfaces. We apply the material in several layers, and then as we cure the composite resin under a light, we sculpt and mold the tooth. The final step involves polishing it for a more natural appearance.
In one visit, we can mask permanent teeth stains that are resistant to teeth whitening treatments. We also repair minor chips and cracks, and even provide length to teeth worn down due to injury or teeth grinding. Our team can also remove spaces or black triangle areas in between the teeth too.
The contouring process takes a very different approach, bit also only takes one visit to complete. In fact, we may perform this in the same sitting as your bonding procedure! We gently sand and buff away outer structure to help protect common esthetic issues. For example, we can reshape overly large or misshapen teeth, repair very minor chips, and even dull sharp or pointed teeth too. Our team also has a chance to remove any pits, grooves, or rough patches in the surfaces of the teeth.
We may also combine these other treatments to offer a smile makeover. For example, we can whiten the teeth beforehand to ensure your repair match your brightest smile. We can also reserve veneers for the front-facing teeth, since they offer the most lifelike appearance possible.
