Bonding & Contouring

Minimally Invasive Smile Improvement

Your smile dominates most of your facial features when it comes to drawing attention, so when you aren’t entirely proud of its appearance, the impact on your self-confidence can be dramatic. Fortunately for many patients, improving your smile’s appearance doesn’t have to be a cumbersome process. With cosmetic bonding and contouring, we can often produce substantial smile improvement results while minimizing how much of your tooth structure has to be altered. Combining lifelike cosmetic improvement with minimal or no changes to your teeth means you can enjoy a more attractive and confident smile without negatively impacting your long-term oral health.

How Bonding & Contouring Work

Tooth bonding involves the use of advanced, tooth-colored composite resin that is made from biocompatible acrylic and quartz particles. The resin, which is customized to match your tooth’s appearance, can be applied to any area of your tooth’s surface to conceal discoloration or bolster tooth structure that has been worn down. Bonding can also be used for visible gaps between teeth, minor cracks and chips, and to create tooth-colored fillings to treat cavities.

By contrast, contouring is the process of changing the shape of a tooth, smoothing a rough surface area, or eliminating jagged edges by gently re-sculpting the tooth’s outer enamel. Bonding and contouring are separate procedures, but are often performed together for optimal results, especially if you have multiple concerns with the size, shape, and alignment of your teeth.
