irving dental bonding

Did you know that we have a cosmetic treatment that can offer a more attractive smile in only one visit? With dental bonding, we can use the same material as our fillings to offer lifelike repair. In today’s blog, your Irving, TX, dentist talks about how dental bonding can boost smile beauty in only one sitting.

The Dental Bonding Procedure

The procedure only takes one visit to complete, so you leave with a more attractive smile after one sitting! The procedure employs the same composite resin we use to treat fillings, a metal-free blend of glass-like and acrylic-like particles that we shade to blend with the tooth. Our team starts by numbing the tooth to ensure you’re comfortable as we remove any decay, clean the tooth, and then etch the outer surfaces. We apply the prepared composite resin in several layers, sculpting and molding it as the composite resin cures beneath a light. The last step is to polish the tooth for a brighter and more attractive appearance.

The Cosmetic Benefits

The procedure can be used to repair cracked, chipped, or broken tooth structure. We can use bonding to close embarrassing gaps between the teeth, and to correct misshapen teeth too. Our team could also mask the permanent teeth stains that resist teeth whitening, and also improve overall bite balance too, keeping complications like TMJ disorder and bruxism at bay. If teeth grinding has worn-down outer structure, we can repair it with dental bonding too! In a single visit, we can offer stunning results for your smile.

What About Dental Contouring?

Our team could also use another noninvasive cosmetic treatment to offer major results in only one visit. Contouring involves gently sanding and buffing the outer structure. We correct cosmetic concerns without the need for adding structure to the teeth! Instead, we can use contouring to address malformed teeth, reshape overly large ones, and also smooth out grooves, pits, and rough patches in the outer structure. Our team could also dull sharp, pointed, or even jagged portions of outer tooth structure. These treatments could be used individually, together, or with treatments like teeth whitening and porcelain veneers for a smile makeover.

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 want to help you smile with confidence once again, and can address an array of common cosmetic imperfections in a single visit!
