An Easier Way to Improve Your Smile

Your smile is unique, so improving it can’t be a one-size-fits-all process. However, the goals of cosmetic smile improvement are always the same – to optimize your smile’s natural beauty while preserving your healthy, natural tooth structure. Cosmetic tooth bonding and contouring are often recommended for a variety of smile concerns because they can maximize your ability to accomplish both goals. For example, bonding a means using tooth-colored composite resin to build up or conceal a blemished part of your tooth, while contouring involves gently reshaping a small portion of your tooth enamel. Both procedures can offer maximum results while requiring little or no changes to your teeth.

How Bonding and Contouring Are Performed

The tooth-colored composite resin used for tooth bonding is comprised of biocompatible acrylic and quartz-like particles. The resin can be bonded securely to your tooth structure, as well as custom-tinted to match the tooth’s specific color and shade. After your dentist places, sculpts, hardens, and polishes the resin, your tooth will once again be free of blemishes. To contour a tooth, we’ll carefully sculpt a small part of the tooth that’s jutting over another tooth, or that is jagged due to a minor chip or fracture. We’ll take care to sculpt only the amount of tooth enamel necessary to correct your tooth’s appearance, ensuring the tooth retains its optimal health and strength.
