Tooth Bonding Services Can Offer More Than You Might Think

Because tooth bonding and contouring work only requires minimal changes to your tooth structure, you may worry that the improvements you see will be limited. Is this conservative procedure really going to give you a smile that you are eager to show off? At our Ankeny, IA dentist’s office, we have helped many people see exciting smile improvements from the tooth bonding procedure. We can do an evaluation to see how these changes might help you improve your smile, then walk you through what your treatment can involve. Because there is no need to design or place a custom restoration, this work can be completed in less time than you might think. It is possible for you to have your desired smile in as little as one appointment!

How Bonding And Contouring Treatments Deliver Big Changes With Conservative Work

Through slight changes to your tooth structure, we can make improvements to your smile by correcting issues with the shape, size, and color of any teeth that look unattractive or out of place. The contouring process lets us change a tooth’s shape, which can help reduce the size of a tooth or correct it if it looks uneven. The bonding process uses a composite resin substance that can bond with your enamel. When applied, it will effectively cover up damages, change the color of a tooth, and even add to the size of one that appears to be too small.

What Does Treatment Involve?

Before performing work on your smile, your dentist will perform a review of your smile and talk to you about what results you want from your cosmetic dental procedure. After this is done, we can determine what adjustments should be made to teeth to deliver those improvements. After carefully contouring a tooth, composite resin will be administered to its surface to change its color, hide any visible chips or cracks, or even to close a gap between teeth. The substance we use is biocompatible, which means it will bond to your enamel. At the end of your procedure, you can flash a smile that looks healthy and natural, and one that is now free of embarrassing flaws!

Reviewing Your Options For Cosmetic Improvements

While bonding and contouring work can deliver exciting results, this may not be the right treatment approach for you. If this is the case, we can review the benefits of other procedures performed at our office. For example, we can use porcelain veneers to change the appearance of your smile. While this approach takes more work, the restorations used in your treatment offer more durability. For patients who are fine with the shape and size of their teeth, but unhappy with teeth stains, we do offer professional whitening treatments.
