Cosmetic dental work can be more conservative than you anticipate. Even if you want to make several changes to the appearances of teeth, Dr. Browne can work with you to fit your changes into as little as one appointment! We can provide timely care that limits work done to your tooth structure through tooth bonding and contouring. These treatments work together to reshape, restore, and resize teeth as needed. The bonding process even gives us the means to take on forms of discoloration that teeth whitening agents are less effective at treating.
Tooth bonding and tooth contouring work can be performed together to make desired changes to the way you look. Because we can use these services to make meaningful and lasting improvements without the need for permanent restorations, we can shorten treatment times and preserve more of your healthy tooth structure!
- Tooth contouring is a practice of carefully reshaping and resizing teeth through the removal of excess enamel. This work can help when you have teeth that appear jagged or uneven, or when certain teeth stand out due to their larger sizes.
- The tooth bonding treatment process relies on a composite resin material to correct flaws that you would like to hide. Rather than modify a tooth with a permanent dental crown or porcelain veneer, we apply a resin material that hardens upon application. This work can brighten tooth structure, hide chips and cracks, and improve upon tooth shape and size as needed.
Through careful bonding and contouring work, our practice can improve how you look when you smile while minimizing the overall changes to your tooth structure. We are happy to help you learn how these and other cosmetic services can give you the smile you want to show off. To find out more, call our Prairie Village, KS dental office at (913) 901-8585.
