Do You Need Smile Improvement?

These unique cosmetic treatments address a wide array of esthetic concerns, including problems with the shape, position, and color of the teeth. If you have issues with the appearance of your smile, then contact our team to schedule an appointment., We will sit you down and discuss your smile goals, and then we will examine your teeth with advanced technology. This allows our team to assess the cause and severity of your cosmetic issues, and create a personalized treatment plan to improve the beauty of your teeth. In many situations, we may use bonding and contouring to improve the beauty of the teeth in just one visit!

Dental Bonding

With this option, our team uses composite resin to repair them. The composite resin material is a blend of glass and acrylic that contains no metal and can be shaded to match the color of surrounding teeth. Treatment involves cleaning the tooth and removing any tooth decay. We apply the composite resin in several layers. As we cure the material with a light, we can sculpt and mold the teeth. Finally, we polish the tooth for a more natural-looking appearance. Treatment could be used to repair minor chips and cracks, or to lengthen teeth worn-down by teeth grinding. We close unsightly gaps between the teeth, and can reshape malformed teeth as well.

Dental Contouring

In the same visit, we could also contour your teeth. The procedure involves our team sanding and buffing away small sections of outer structure to address a wide array of esthetic issues and restorative concerns. For example, we can remove any embarrassing pits or grooves in the surfaces. We can reshape overly large or misshapen teeth, and address minor chips too. We can also dull overly sharp or pointed teeth in one sitting too. If you have any questions about either of these cosmetic treatments, or about our teeth whitening or porcelain veneers options, then please contact our team today.
