Cosmetic Treatment To Repair Your Teeth

rowlett cosmetic dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry offers much more than just teeth whitening. We can also use cosmetic dentistry to repair damaged teeth and mask imperfections with the color and shape of a tooth. In today’s blog, your Rowlett, TX, dentist talks about repairing teeth with dental bonding and contouring.

Your First Consultation

Everything starts with an initial cosmetic consultation, in which we will talk to you about your concerns with your smile and possible solutions. We then examine your smile to assess the cause and extent of these cosmetic imperfections, so we can create a personalized treatment plan to offer improvement, often in as little as one visit. For many patients, we can offer bonding and contouring, which can address a host of cosmetic concerns in only one visit, so you live with a transformed smile.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding provides significant improvement for smiles using only composite resin, a metal-free material, is also used to create dental fillings. The material is safe for all ages, biocompatible, and can be shaded to blend with the tooth and surrounding ones too. The treatment involves numbing the tooth and then cleaning it and etching the surface. Next, we place the prepared material in several layers, and sculpt the tooth as the composite resin cures beneath a light. The last step is to polish the tooth for a brighter appearance.

With bonding, we can mask permanent teeth stains that could resist traditional whitening treatments, or even close gaps between the teeth. We can repair cracks or chips, treat tooth decay, lengthen worn down teeth, and help improve overall bite balance too. All in a single visit!

Dental Contouring

In the same visit, we can also complete a contouring procedure, in which we sand and buff the outer structures to correct cosmetic imperfections instead of adding new material to the tooth. With the contouring process, we can correct the appearance of minor chips, or with overly large or misshapen teeth, and smooth out pits, grooves, or rough patches in the outer structure. Our team can also correct jagged, sharp, or pointed portions of tooth structure too. Our team could also combine this with other cosmetic treatments for a smile makeover, such as teeth whitening or even porcelain veneers.

If you have any questions about cosmetic dentistry, or if you have cosmetic issues you want to see corrected, then contact our team to see if bonding and contouring is right for you. We’re ready to help you safeguard the beauty of your smile, so you can show off your pearly whites without hesitation.
