One uneven tooth is enough to interfere with your appearance in a way that makes you self-conscious when you smile, speak, or do anything that might let people glimpse your flaw. While a conspicuous dental problem can make you uncomfortable with your appearance, you should know that cosmetic dental work can ensure that your problem is effectively addressed. At our Prairie Village, KS dental office, we can arrange the appropriate cosmetic treatment to effectively change the shape and size of a tooth. Dental bonding and contouring work is capable of changing your tooth by hiding past damage, or by making corrections to a tooth that has congenital issues. This work can be discreet, it can require little change to your tooth structure, and it can be completed in less time than you might think possible!
Do You Have A Damaged Or Misshapen Tooth Affecting Your Smile?
All it takes is one conspicuous tooth flaw to make you concerned about the quality of your smile. When you feel uncomfortable with the way you look, it can change the way you behave by making you self-conscious, and uncomfortable with smiling. You should not feel like you have to “hide” your smile from the world. If you have an issue with dental damage, or if a tooth just appears unattractive or out of place, the right procedure can fully resolve the matter.
Carefully Correcting Your Appearance Through Bonding And Contouring Work
Dental bonding and contouring work can make changes to your tooth’s appearance without using a permanent restoration. What happens instead is that after carefully examining your tooth, your dentist can figure out how to provide improvements by contouring the tooth to improve its shape, and by using a special resin material to further improve its appearance. Contouring can hide minor chips and cracks, and it can be done in order to make a jagged tooth stand out less. When the resin material is applied, it can cover up discoloration, hide problems with the shape of a tooth, and even make it appear larger.
Would A Different Cosmetic Treatment Be More Beneficial For Your Appearance?
Bonding and contouring can be effective in many circumstances, but you should know that there are other procedures that are available to you! While it can take longer to have porcelain veneers crafted and placed on teeth, the restorations used can offer superior durability. If your concern is less about the shape and condition of individual teeth, and more about the way your teeth are aligned, we can discuss an adjustment with MTM Clear Aligners.
