Improving Smile Beauty In Only One Visit

virginia beach dental bondingDid you know that we can offer two unique cosmetic treatments that can improve the beauty of your smile in only one visit? With bonding and contouring, we can offer major transformation for multiple cosmetic imperfections at once. In today’s blog, your Virginia Beach, VA, dentist looks at boosting smile beauty in a single visit.

Starting With a Cosmetic Consultation

The first step for a stunning summer smile is to schedule a visit for a cosmetic consultation. During your visit, we will sit you down and talk about your concerns regarding your smile and we will ask about your oral hygiene habits. We then examine the teeth with digital imaging technology to assess the cause and extent of your esthetic imperfections. With this option, we can create a treatment plan to offer major results, sometimes in as little as one visit with bonding and contouring!

Dental Bonding

The bonding procedure involves applying a composite resin to your teeth to correct cosmetic issues. This is the same metal-free material we use for our tooth-colored dental fillings. The material contains no metal and is a blend of glass-like and acrylic particles, which can be color-matched to blend with your tooth and your smile as a whole. The placement takes only one visit, as we clean the tooth, numb it, and etch it. We then apply the prepared composite resin in several layers, and mold the tooth as the material cures beneath a light. The last step is to polish it for a brighter smile.

In one visit, we can fill gaps and unsightly black triangle spaces between teeth, and even mask teeth stains that whitening alone cannot address. Our team can repair chipped or broken teeth, and even lengthen teeth worn down by bruxism too. For some, this is essentially a smile makeover in only one appointment!

Dental Contouring

Cosmetic contouring takes a very different approach. Our team won’t need to add new material to the tooth. Instead, we will gently and buff the outer structure to address the imperfections in your smile. For example, we can correct the appearance of minor chips, and address overly large or malformed teeth. The procedure can smooth away rough matches, pits, and grooves in the tooth, and also dull sharp, jagged or pointed portions of the structure. We can combine these with bonding too!
