Dental Bonding and Contouring in Helena, MT

Accidents are an inevitable part of life, and sometimes they can impact our smiles. Imagine, for instance, tripping and chipping a tooth, or finding your tooth discolored due to an illness or medication. In Helena, MT, Dr. Sean Melton offers a cutting-edge solution: laser-assisted dental bonding and contouring using Nd:YAG wavelength technology. This advanced procedure performed at Melton Dental efficiently tackles various cosmetic concerns. The process involves the application of composite resin, the same material used in tooth-colored fillings, to effectively conceal stains, bridge gaps, lengthen teeth, or alter their shape. It's a fast and effective way to boost your smile's appearance. Consider scheduling a visit to learn more about how laser-assisted dental bonding and contouring can transform your smile at Melton Dental.

Dental bonding and contouring can usually be done in one appointment at our office in Helena, MT. You should not need any anesthesia, but options for sedation can be reviewed with Dr. Melton during your appointment if you have any anxiety or a strong gag reflex. As soon as you're comfortable, Dr. Melton will begin applying the composite resin to the needed teeth with the help of one of his dental assistants. The bonding material will be hardened with a special light before more layers are added. After the layers of composite resin are complete, Dr. Melton will contour and polish the composite resin and your natural teeth for an even finish.

At Melton Dental, dental bonding and contouring could offer an array of benefits for Helena, MT individuals hoping to enhance the look and use of their teeth. These benefits include:

How long do the results of dental bonding last?

Dental bonding and contouring can last many years if patients maintain good oral hygiene and have healthy teeth and gums. We recommend brushing and flossing daily in addition to coming back for a full dental examination and cleaning every six months. Patients can also avoid chewing on hard or sticky foods as well as any activity that can damage the teeth.

Is dental contouring painful?

The specialists at Melton Dental are trained to administer local anesthetics before most dental procedures. Depending on the extent of contouring, procedures can be extremely comfortable and not cause any pain at all. If you are concerned about pain, ask us about how we prepare for dental bonding and contouring to ensure that you are at ease before the procedure begins.

Does dental bonding look natural?

Yes, it does! Dental bonding is one of our patients' most natural-looking cosmetic dental options. This is because we take the time to match the color of your teeth with that of the dental materials. Our experienced dentists in Helena, MT, primarily focus on creating beautiful and natural smiles that last for life.

Dental bonding and contouring is a wonderful option if you would like to improve minor flaws in your teeth without the expense and time of other cosmetic procedures.
