About Dental Bonding

Teeth can get chipped or cracked accidentally or while playing sports. Or, they may be irregularly spaced, misshapen, or discolored for any number of reasons. Fortunately, these problems can be resolved with cosmetic bonding or contouring, two processes which can reshape teeth to create a more beautiful smile.

With dental bonding, your dentist applies tooth-colored composite resin to teeth to add more structure and fill spaces and chips. The material bonds to the existing tooth and is then molded into the desired shape. A bonding is considered a temporary restoration, but it generally lasts for several years. Many patients choose bonding as a precursor to porcelain veneers.

With contouring, a special tool is used to reshape teeth by removing small amounts of existing tooth enamel. Through contouring, your dentist can change a tooth’s shape or length or soften the edges of sharp or jagged teeth.

Usually, dental bonding and contouring can be completed in one visit. Often, our cosmetic dentists perform bonding and contouring together for optimal outcome. We can help you evaluate which technique is best for you, taking into consideration the overall health of your teeth and your esthetic goals.

Please contact us at our dental office if you’d like to schedule a consultation or learn more about dental bonding and contouring.
