If cosmetic smile improvements seem out of reach, a person who is interested in treatment may decide that it is not even worth mentioning to their dentist. The trouble with this feeling is that your goals may be easier to attain than you realize. At our Ankeny, IA dentist’s office, we can provide stunning results with conservative cosmetic work that can occur without the need for permanent restorations. For example, we can provide tooth bonding and contouring work that improves on the shape, size, and color of teeth without capping them with veneers or crowns. For many, this work is something we can complete in as little as one visit! Before proceeding with any treatment option, we can provide a review of your oral health to determine if there are any issues that might require our attention. The good news is that restorative work can make desirable changes to the way you look as well as to your dental function and health.
Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be Less Intimidating Than You Realize
Even minor dental issues can draw the attention of people, so issues with misshapen, damaged, discolored, or poorly positioned teeth can have an outsized effect on your overall appearance. Through cosmetic dentistry, there are many smile flaws that we can address. What may surprise you is how one procedure can address multiple issues at one time, leading to dramatic improvements in a short period. One option we offer is treatment through tooth bonding and contouring work. Depending on the number of teeth that you ultimately hope to restore, this is something that can give you all of your improvements in as little as one appointment at our office.
Pursuing Treatment To Restore Damaged Or Misshapen Teeth
Through bonding and contouring services, we are able to respond to problems with teeth that appear out of place due to their shape, size, or color. The contouring process is an effective means of reducing the size of teeth that seem too large for your smile, and for those that look jagged or uneven. Through your bonding procedure, we can hide blemishes, cover damages, and generally make your smile more attractive through a careful application of a resin material that is applied directly to your enamel.
When Is It Necessary To Restore An Unsightly Tooth With A Crown?
There are some occasions where a dental crown should be placed to restore an unsightly tooth. This will address problems with its appearance, but it also offers support for a vulnerable tooth and improves your bite function.
