Bonding Means Cosmetic Improvement In One Visit

Dental bonding is a unique cosmetic treatment that enables our team to treat a variety of issues in one visit. We can change the shape and shade of your teeth, so you can smile with confidence. In today’s blog, your El Paso, TX, dentist talk about how our bonding procedure can offer cosmetic improvement in a single sitting.

Your Cosmetic Consultation

To begin, we want to see you to talk about your esthetic concerns. Our team then examines your smile to assess the cause and extent of your esthetic issues. From there, we can create a treatment plan to address these concerns and offer a more attractive smile. We have a comprehensive array of cosmetic treatments, from professional teeth whitening to gum contouring and even lifelike porcelain veneers. But with dental bonding, we can offer major improvements in only one visit.

Dental Bonding

To begin, we will gently numb the tooth and remove any decay from the tooth too. We will etch the surface to help the material better adhere to the tooth as it cures. We then apply the composite resin to the tooth. This is the same metal-free material we use in our tooth-colored dental fillings, which can be shaded to blend with the tooth and look natural. As we cure the composite resin under a light, we sculpt and mold the tooth. Finally, we polish it for a brighter appearance.

In one visit, we can repair cracked and chipped teeth. Dental bonding can lengthen worn down teeth and also close unsightly gaps between the teeth too. The procedure can also correct misshapen teeth too.

Dental Contouring

In the same appointment, we could also offer dental contouring, which again improves smile beauty in a single appointment. Instead of adding new materials to the tooth, our team will gently sand and buff away small sections of outer structure to offer major improvement. For example, we can correct the appearance of minor chips, and smooth our grooves, pits, and rough patches in the outer structure. Our team could use the procedure to address sharp, jagged, or pointed tooth structure, and to address overly large or misshapen teeth too.

If you have any questions about our approach to cosmetic dentistry, or about dental bonding and contouring in particular, then contact our team today to learn more. We’re ready to offer major improvement for the beauty of your smile.
