With cosmetic dentistry, we use treatment to improve the beauty of your smile, which could also help bite function and oral health in many cases too. We have treatments to improve the shape of your teeth and correct cosmetic concerns in only one visit. In today’s blog, your Lake Orion, MI, dentist talks about our single-visit cosmetic treatments, from teeth whitening to dental bonding and contouring, and explains how these cosmetic treatments can address multiple imperfections in a one appointment!

Examining Your Smile

To begin, we will conduct a dental examination, so we can assess the cause and severity of your cosmetic imperfections, and create a treatment plan personalized for your smile. Every smile is unique, so we want to make sure your care is customized for your smile, ensuring lifelike results and a properly balanced bite too. In many cases, if you have multiple issues with the appearance of your smile, we could tackle them in one visit with dental bonding, or a combination of bonding and contouring.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding involves adding composite resin to the tooth to correct several issues with the shape and color of the teeth at once. The material is metal-free and safe from all ages. We can shade it to blend with the rest of your tooth structure and your smile as a whole, so it looks natural. The process involves numbing the tooth being treated and then removing any decay. We clean the tooth and then etch the surfaces. The composite resin is applied to the tooth and shaped as the material cures beneath a light. The last step is to polish the tooth for a brighter appearance.

Dental bonding can be used to mask permanent teeth stains that would otherwise resist teeth whitening, or film gaps between the teeth. Our team can use it to repair cracked and chipped teeth, lengthen worn down teeth, and address misshapen ones too. For some, this is a smile makeover in only one appointment!

Contouring in One Visit

In the same visit, our team would also contour the teeth, which involves addressing cosmetic imperfections by sanding and buffing away outer structure from the tooth. Our team can use contouring to smooth out grooves, rough patches, and pits in the outer surface. We can also reshape malformed or overly large teeth, and address the appearance of minor chips too. The procedure can also dull jagged, sharp, or pointed portions of tooth structure, all in one visit! You can obtain major improvements in your smile without the need for multiple visits to the office

Same Day Crowns

What if you have damage or issues with the shape of your tooth that are too severe for a bonding or contouring procedure? In these situations, we may need to create and place a crown. We can do so using holistic and lifelike materials, such as ceramic, which can be shaded to blend with your smile. Using CEREC technology, we can design, craft, and place your new crowns in only one appointment, so you leave with a restored tooth that blends with your smile. These can also aid in tooth replacement, acting as implant restorations, and we can create custom bridges in one visit too. You deserve results that look natural, and we can offer this with cosmetic dentistry.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening can remove stains too severe for whitening toothpastes or store-bought strips to handle. For many, we can offer this in one visit with our in-office procedure. With this teeth whitening option, our team will apply a protective covering to the lips and gums, and apply a bleaching gel to the teeth. We activate the gel with a special LED light, which then begins to break up and remove stains. In as little as one to two hours, you could have teeth several shades brighter.

If you want to obtain stunning results in one visit, then talk to our team. There is still time to see us before the holidays are here, and you can use your remaining 2023 dental benefits and health savings funds before they expire at midnight on December 31st.
