Making Lasting Changes Through Tooth Bonding

Will the right cosmetic dental treatment for you require more time, or more changes, than you feel comfortable with, or can you see the improvements you want through conservative care? Many people who fear that the former is the case can find that the latter is actually possible. At our Ankeny, IA dentist’s office, we can recommend tooth bonding treatment to hide many different problems with the way you look. That can mean changing the shape or size of a flawed tooth, correcting its color, or even hiding a small gap or overlap. This approach does not require permanent restorations, so it can be completed in as little as one visit.

Can You Really Target Smile Flaws Without Placing Restorations?

There are several approaches to treatment we can take when you want to change the shape, size, or color of certain teeth that stand out for the wrong reasons when you smile and speak. In some of those approaches, it is necessary for us to craft permanent restorations—we can use dental crowns to protect vulnerable teeth, or we can hide problems with porcelain veneers. However, these kind of approaches are not needed in every situation. For patients who are candidates for tooth bonding and contouring work, we can take on many different flaws while only making minimal changes to tooth structure, and without the need to place permanent restorations.

Arranging Your Tooth Bonding And Contouring Procedure

Your tooth bonding and contouring treatment can help you make significant overall changes to the way you look. The bonding process relies on a composite resin that we administer directly to your enamel. The contouring process will reshape a tooth or reduce its size. These services can work together to make dramatic changes that still only require minimal actual changes to your enamel.

Looking Into All Of Your Treatment Options

Because you have other options for treatment, we can make sure that you enjoy the service that truly fits what you want. For example, we can recommend treatment with porcelain veneers to improve your smile, as they can provide more durability. If we find that you have teeth that are in poor health or not effectively supporting your bite, we can recommend that they be capped with dental crowns, which can provide cosmetic as well as oral health support.
