Smile Upgrades with Bonding and Contouring

The structure of your teeth is what gives them power and durability. Your teeth extend far beneath your gum line and connect with your jawbone. Even teeth that function great and are healthy can sometimes need a little help to look their best. If you’ve got some slight tweaks you’d like to make to your smile to help it look amazing, then there are cosmetic options available for you. Cosmetic options like bonding and contouring are noninvasive. They don’t require you to overhaul the healthy structure of your teeth. They can be completed simply in one office visit.

Upgrade Your Smile’s Appearance with Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a conservative cosmetic treatment that can make small adjustments to the shape and appearance of your smile. Dental bonding is completed using a composite dental resin that is designed to match the appearance of your natural teeth. It’s also an additive procedure, during which your dentist will use dental resin to fill out your teeth or add volume to them. If you’ve got a tooth that is noticeably smaller than your other teeth, bonding may be able to add a little length or volume to the tooth. If your tooth has a crack or chip in it, again, bonding can create a more uniform appearance.

Dental Contouring Will Gently Shape Your Teeth

Dental contouring is associated with dental bonding because it is essentially the opposite treatment. During dental contouring, your dentist will gently shape your existing tooth enamel to improve the appearance of your smile. If you have a tooth that is noticeably larger than your other teeth, dental contouring can help. If a jagged tooth edge is sticking out and causing you discomfort, dental contouring can round it off. Any rough surfaces can be smoothed out with dental contouring.

Bonding and Contouring Are Minimal and Comfortable

Both dental bonding and contouring are simple, conservative cosmetic treatments. That being the case, it’s likely that you won’t even need local anesthesia during the procedure. Most bonding and contouring procedures can be completed during one office visit. This is also an inexpensive fix for some of the most common smile blemishes, and furthermore, it doesn’t require surgery or an extended treatment timetable. You may be surprised by what bonding and contouring can do for you.
