Dr. Han offers a variety of options so that you can decide which cosmetic dental treatments are right for you.

Tooth Bonding

Tooth bonding offers a great solution for patients that need restoration of oral health problems that include tooth decay, tooth stains, minor gaps between teeth, and to correct crooked teeth. As part of tooth bonding treatment, Dr. Han applies a thin layer of resin to the front surface of your teeth. Dr. Han will then bond, sculpt, color, and shape to the resin to improve the appearance of your smile. Once Dr. Han has perfectly sculpted the resin into position, he will cure the resin using a high-intensity light. The surface of your new smile is then polished, and you’re ready to go!

Dental bonding ranks as one of the most affordable cosmetic dental procedures, and offers a great looking, long-lasting impact on the state of any smile. Unlike dental veneers or implants that require multiple visits to place, tooth bonding can be completed in just one visit to our Tigard cosmetic dental office unless multiple teeth require restoration. Dental bonding typically takes between 30 to 60 minutes per tooth to complete.

Tooth Contouring and Reshaping

This cosmetic dentistry treatment offers patients an instant and painless way to correct the shape of their smile. Tooth contouring and reshaping can correct crooked, cracked or overlapping teeth in just one visit. This procedure can alter the length, shape, or alter the position of your teeth.

Contouring is used with bonding to correct bite problems, and imperfections are carefully eliminated through sculpting with a sanding drill or laser. Your teeth are then smoothed and polished. Tooth contouring can even be an alternative treatment option for patients needing braces under the right circumstances.

If you desire a smile that appears less crowded, lack chips and cracks, of has decreased overlaps, you should talk to Dr.Han about whether tooth contouring is right for you. Just one treatment can make a huge difference about the way you feel about the appearance of your smile. As an experienced Tigard cosmetic dentist, Dr. Han prides himself on providing patients with a smile that makes other the envious. Your teeth do need to be healthy enough for tooth contouring to work.

Veneers may be a desirable option if you want to improve the look of your teeth. If your teeth don’t show extensive damage or decay, veneers can perfect your smile without cutting away any of your teeth for crowns.

Veneers are similar to artificial fingernails in that they are made of a durable material like resin or ceramic. These thin pieces are bonded to the front of your teeth, and are generally used to improve the overall look of your teeth, especially if you have teeth that are uneven, chipped, stained or crooked.

Veneers can be completed in about three dental visits. The first one involves a consultation with Dr. Han. During the second appointment, Dr. Han will need to take off a small part of enamel from your teeth. We will also need to take an impression of your teeth to send to the lab where your veneers will be made.
