Bonding: Cosmetic Improvement In Only One Visit

virginia beach bondingWhen you have issues with the beauty of your smile, which could range from unsightly teeth stains to misshapen teeth, we could potentially address them in only one visit using dental bonding. In today’s blog, your Virginia Beach, VA, dentist talks about how we boost smile beauty in one sitting with composite resin.

The Esthetic Imperfections Bonding Addressing

Dental bonding involves applying a composite resin to the outside of your teeth to mask common cosmetic imperfections. For example, our team can address teeth stains too severe to be addressed with traditional teeth whitening procedures. We can also close embarrassing gaps between your teeth, and reshape malformed teeth too. In one sitting, we can repair minor cracks and chips, and lengthen tooth structure worn down by teeth grinding. For many, this could provide a smile makeover in only one visit!

The Dental Bonding Process

We will begin by examining your smile to assess the cause and severity of your cosmetic issues. If bonding is the right choice for you, we will numb the teeth being treated with a local anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the procedure. We then prepare the composite resin, a metal-free blend that can be shaded to match the rest of the tooth structure, and your overall smile too. We may etch the outer surface and apply the material in several layers. As we cure the tooth under a light, we will sculpt and mold it. The last step is to polish the tooth, which offers a more attractive appearance. In one visit, we can make your smile shine!

Contouring Your Teeth

In the same visit, we can also address more minor esthetic issues with contouring. Instead of adding to the tooth, we gently sand and sculpt the outer structure to address esthetic issues. For example, we can smooth out pits, grooves, and rough patches in the tooth structure. Our team can also correct sharp, jagged, or pointed tooth structures. We can address overly large or misshapen teeth, and even correct the appearance of very minor chips.
