Cosmetic dental work has helped many people go from embarrassed to thrilled with their smile. If you have a problem with the way your teeth currently look, you may be interested to know more about cosmetic treatment, and what your dentist can do to help you. What you might find is that the improvements you want to see are more readily available than you might expect. Your Dallas, TX dentist can use a bonding and contouring treatment to carefully correct issues with the shape, size, and color of teeth that look unattractive. In as little as a single appointment, you may be ready to show off dramatic cosmetic changes!
Addressing Issues With Teeth That Are Discolored, Misshapen, Or Otherwise Flawed
If you want to correct problems with dental discoloration, you may have looked into a store bought whitening treatment, or even talked with your dentist about a professional teeth whitening. If you are more concerned with the shape, size, or alignment of certain teeth, results may seem harder to attain. Through careful bonding and contouring work, your dentist can actually fix these problems without using a permanent lab-made restoration, which means the improvements can be accomplished more easily than you expect.
Carefully Improving The Look Of Teeth During A Cosmetic Treatment
During bonding and contouring work, your dentist will take care to make precise improvements to teeth that look unattractive. Contouring involves reshaping a tooth by carefully removing enamel. At the end of this work, an oversized tooth can fit in with your smile, and a jagged tooth can be even. Bonding involves the placing of a special resin on teeth – this material can improve the color, shape, or size of teeth that stand out for the wrong reasons. In some cases, a bonding treatment can even close a smile gap.
A Different Approach May Be Needed For Oral Health Issues
Some problems with your appearance are also problems with your oral health. If you have a problem with a tooth that looks unattractive because of its poor condition, or because of a dental injury, your dentist may use a dental crown. This can result in functional improvements, as well as a positive change in your appearance.
