Cosmetic Restoration With Dental Bonding

woodland hills dental bondingTeeth whitening isn’t the only cosmetic treatment available for your smile. What if you have issues like misshapen or damaged teeth? We can offer cosmetic restoration in only one visit with dental bonding! In today’s blog, your Woodland Hills, CA, dentist talks about how we improve smile beauty with dental bonding in only one visit!

The Bonding Procedure

How does the bonding procedure work? The entire process only takes one sitting! To get started, our team will carefully examine the tooth to plan the procedure in detail. We will offer a local numbing agent to ensure your comfort as we remove any decay and clean the tooth. Next, our team will prepare the bonding material, known as composite resin, a blend of acrylic-like and glass-like particles that can be shaded to blend with your tooth. We then apply this in multiple layers and will shape your tooth to ensure proper appearance and balance as the composite resin cures beneath a light. The last step is to polish the tooth to provide a more lifelike appearance.

The Cosmetic Benefits

Our team can use the material to mask permanent teeth stains that might otherwise resist traditional teeth whitening treatments. We can also repair cracked or chipped teeth, and reshape malformed structures as well. The procedure can also lengthen worn down portions of the teeth and improve overall bite balance too. We can even fill unsightly gaps between the teeth! For some, this could provide a smile makeover in only one visit. But our team can also combine this with another cosmetic treatment, which can also be done in a single visit: dental contouring.

Dental Contouring

With dental contouring, our team will correct minor cosmetic issues by gently sanding and buffing away portions of outer structures. This can be done alongside bonding or in a separate visit. The procedure enables our team to smooth away pits, grooves, and rough patches in the outer structure. We could also correct issues like sharp, jagged or pointed portions of your smile. The procedure also helps by correcting the appearance of minor chips and by addressing overly large teeth too. For a true smile makeover, we can also combine these with other cosmetic treatments, such as professional teeth whitening or porcelain veneers.
