Is Tooth Bonding The Right Cosmetic Procedure For You?

Your smile can be healthy and still be less attractive than you like. Problems with discoloration, misshapen teeth, and poor alignment can affect your confidence negatively, making you noticeably uncomfortable with your appearance. At our Virginia Beach, VA dentist’s office, patients who want to do something about these concerns can learn about cosmetic dentistry, which offers several treatment approaches. One treatment approach is a tooth bonding and contouring procedure. Patients who choose this approach can look forward to a smile that is no longer hurt by teeth that appear out of place because of their shape, size, condition, or color!

Identifying Smile Changes You Would Like To Make

There is no single cause for concern that makes a person interested in cosmetic dental work. Some patients come in to discuss how they can fix problems with teeth that stand out when they smile because of their position, their shape and size, or because of visible damage or poor health. Others will feel unhappy because their smile seems asymmetrical, or because teeth stains have left them looking older and less healthy. Our practice provides services that can help with these different issues. Often, a single procedure can end up helping with more than one problem, making care more convenient than they expect.

Arranging Tooth Bonding And Contouring Treatment

Tooth bonding and contouring work changes the shape, size, and color of any teeth that stand out when you smile. The contouring process can be performed on jagged teeth, or those that are too large. The tooth bonding process involves an application of a resin substance that imitates healthy enamel. When applied, it can make a tooth appear larger, improve its shape, hide damage, and even change its color! Depending on how many teeth you want worked on, this is a process that we may be able to complete in as little as one appointment!

We Can Explore All Of Your Options For Cosmetic Treatment

There are multiple approaches we can recommend, based on the current condition of someone’s smile. We can use porcelain veneers to change the shape, size, and color of someone’s teeth. Veneers are thin restorations that we adhere to the front surfaces of teeth so that we can cover embarrassing flaws. For people who are bothered by poorly aligned teeth but uncomfortable with traditional orthodontic work, we can recommend Invisalign treatment. You will use a series of clear aligners instead of fixed metal braces to straighten teeth, close gaps, and fix visible overlaps.
