Dental bonding is the use of composite dental resin to repair damaged teeth quickly. Most bonding procedures can be completed in just one office visit.
First, a resin that matches the color of your teeth is selected and your tooth is prepared for application. Then the resin is used to repair chips, fill in gaps, lengthen a short tooth or cover severe discoloration that will not respond to whitening.
An ultraviolet light hardens the resin and then the application is buffed and polished until the texture matches that of your other teeth.
Complete Smile Makeover is unique in that it varies depending on each patient. Because full mouth reconstruction is a series of procedures, recovery time, results, and procedure length will all vary depending on the quantity of procedures in total. Some common dental procedures performed during full mouth reconstruction include dental implants, dental crowns, dental bridges, fillings, and porcelain inlays / and onlays. Additionally, porcelain veneers, dental bonding and clear braces such as Invisalign® may also be used during full mouth reconstruction.
Whitening, also known as bleaching, is the procedure used to brighten teeth. There are two different ways to achieve a desired whiter smile, In-Office Bleaching and At-Home Bleaching.
In-Office Bleaching usually requires only one office visit. A protective gel or a rubber shield is placed over the gums to protect the soft tissue. A bleaching agent containing carbamide peroxide is applied to the teeth, and a laser light is then used to enhance the action of the whitening agent .
