We recently talked about teeth whitening and how we remove stains from your smile. But what if you also have issues with the shape of your teeth, or with gaps between them? In today’s blog, your Newhall, CA, dentist talks about how we transform your smile with bonding, only taking one visit to complete!
The procedure uses a material known as composite resin. This material blends glass-like and acrylic particles to create a metal-free substance that is durable and long-lasting. We can also shade the material to blend with the rest of the tooth structure and the smile as a whole. This is why we use this for our tooth-colored dental fillings too. With this material, we can mask permanent teeth stains, close embarrassing gaps between the teeth, and repair minor chips and cracks. We also lengthen worn down teeth and reshape malformed ones too!
The dental bonding procedure starts with the dentist examining your smile to assess the severity of your esthetic issues. We then choose the most appropriate treatment options, and create a plan tailored to your smile specifically. To ensure the entire process is a comfortable one, we start by administering a local anesthetic, and then gently clean the tooth and etch the surfaces. We prepare and apply the composite resin in several layers, sculpting and molding the tooth as we do. A light is then used to cure the tooth and we gently polish it too, offering a brighter and more lifelike appearance. The entire process only takes one visit, and can address multiple esthetic issues at once.
In the same visit or a separate one, we could also contour your teeth too! With this option we don’t add new materials to a tooth, instead we gently sand and buff the outer structure to correct common cosmetic issues. For example, we can repair minor chips, reshape overly large teeth, and dull sharp, pointed, or jagged portions of structure. Our team could also smooth out rough patches, grooves, and pits. For a smile makeover, we could combine these procedures with professional teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, clear aligners, and more. If you have any questions about how we transform the beauty of a smile in one visit, then contact our team today to learn more. We would love to help boost the beauty of your smile in 2022.
