Hiding Dental Flaws Through Tooth Bonding

People often feel self-conscious about flaws that are visible when they smile, even if these flaws are relatively minor. Even if you are “mostly” happy with the way you look, that one issue can make it hard for you to feel as confident as you would like. Fortunately, treatment for blemishes, enamel damage, and other concerns can take less time than you expect while also requiring fewer changes to your tooth structure. At our Ankeny, IA dentist’s office, we can recommend that you look into tooth bonding and contouring services. These approaches to cosmetic dental work remove the need to create and place restorations, and can often be finished after just one appointment.

What Makes You Self-Conscious About Your Smile?

Are you worried that people are fixating on a broken, misshapen, or poorly aligned tooth in your otherwise flawless smile? Has wear and tear affected your enamel in a way that ages you, or has this problem made your smile less symmetrical? Problems with the shape, size, and color of teeth can draw unwanted attention. Even if you just have concerns about a single tooth, that tooth can become a point people fixate on, making it loom larger than it should. Fortunately, these issues can be addressed through conservative cosmetic dental services that preserve more of your tooth structure and only require as little as one appointment.

Scheduling Your Tooth Bonding Treatment

Through tooth bonding treatment, we can take on specific issues with the way you look that can make you uncomfortable with your overall appearance. The procedure we perform can make changes by contouring the tooth, changing its shape and size so that it is a better fit for your smile. We can also provide bonding services that use composite resin to make cosmetic improvements. This substance becomes permanently affixed to your enamel, which it can brighten, make larger, and restore by hiding flaws.

What Else Can You Do To Restore Your Tooth Shape And Size?

There are other procedures that can target flawed teeth and improve their appearance. The placement of porcelain veneers can take longer, and it demands more involved changes to the shape and size of teeth being restored. With that said, this is an approach to care that can be easier to preserve, as these restorations provide greater durability. If there are concerns about a tooth’s health as well as its appearance, or if it fails to provide support for your bite function, we can restore it with a custom dental crown.
