Using A Bonding And Contouring Treatment To Fix Smile Flaws

Patients looking for a solution to common, but frustrating, smile flaws, can be pleasantly surprised that improvement can come from a single cosmetic dental treatment. In fact, in many cases only one trip to the dentist is needed to see the results you want. A dental bonding and contouring procedure can help address flawed teeth, and increase the overall quality of your smile. Superficial dental damage can be corrected, and flaws with the shape or size of a tooth can be targeted. Bonding can even correct forms of discoloration that a professional whitening treatment will not be able to help with.

Enjoy Cosmetic Improvements In One Visit

In a case where a patient needs work done on several teeth, a bonding and contouring procedure might call for a follow-up visit. However, in many cases, because no lab-made restorations are required in the process, bonding and contouring can often be completed in one appointment. Your dentist will adjust the size of your tooth, and any unevenness, through careful contouring. Bonding involves the application of composite resin to hide damages, improve tooth color, and even make a tooth appear larger.

Other Ways Your Dentist Can Provide You With Positive Cosmetic Changes

You have more options available to you than a dental bonding and contouring treatment, and you can discuss these with your dentist. Patients who are happy with the shape and condition of their teeth, but bothered by their color, can elect to have a professional whitening treatment performed. Having porcelain veneers placed can be more costly, and call for a longer waiting period to have the final results, but your veneers can offer better resilience than the resin used for a bonding treatment.
