You might like what you’ve learned about dental bonding thus far. Do you feel like an absolute expert on the topic yet, though? If you’re shaking your head “no” from side to side, then we know you probably have lots and lots of remaining questions about this treatment. That’s perfectly wonderful! Of course, we encourage you to see us at our Ankeny, IA practice, so you can ask all of the things that apply to your smile. For now, though, we want to offer you some answers to things we hear about all the time, so you’re one step closer to mastering the subject and feeling like you’re ready to improve your grin!
Question: Should I Whiten Before Or After Bonding?
You should usually whiten your smile before bonding. Our teeth whitening is not going to be able to bleach the composite used for dental bonding. So, if you were to bond and then whiten, you would be left with a very obvious bonded area. If you whiten first, we can match the composite to your new tooth shade for a beautiful finish.
Question: Can I Bond And Contour Together?
Yes, of course. You can choose dental bonding now and contouring later. You can select bonding now even if you’ve already received contouring. You can even select both to address different concerns that you’re experiencing with your smile. Talk with us about your different treatment plan options for cosmetic care.
Question: Will Bonding Feel Okay During The Process?
It will. The dental bonding procedure is a gentle one that you will hardly notice. It’s quick and it’s efficient and it feels A-OK.
Question: Can Bonding Really Offer Natural Looking Results?
Dental bonding really can provide you with a beautiful, natural-looking result for your smile. Remember that this process is not a universal one. Our team provides a customized procedure in which we are mindful about every last detail, from the color of the composite to the precise sculpting of the material to ensuring the changes blend beautifully with your grin!
