Reshape Your Teeth, Conceal Blemishes, and Transform Your Smile
Dental bonding and contouring are two related procedures. With minimal alteration to your teeth, Dr. Dooley can correct numerous cosmetic flaws to give you a younger, brighter smile.
About Dental Bonding and Contouring
Dr. Dooley can perform dental bonding and contouring in conjunction with one another, although the two procedures are designed to achieve different results. During bonding, he will build up your teeth using tooth-colored composite resin. This material is available in many shades, so he can select one that is virtually identical to your dental enamel. He will apply the material to your teeth, using a skilled hand and artistic eye, to mask small blemishes, reshape your teeth, and achieve a natural look.
With dental contouring, Dr. Dooley will remove a small amount of dental material to reshape or resize your teeth. He will always remove as little enamel as possible, while still providing stunning results. Contouring does not affect the deeper layers of your teeth, so it is safe and does not weaken the structure of your tooth.
Are You a Candidate for Bonding and Contouring?
Dental contouring is a great solution if you have unusually large teeth, unusually shaped or pointed teeth, or teeth with uneven edges. Because contouring does involve enamel removal, if you have suffered significant enamel erosion, you may not be a good candidate for this procedure.
Dental bonding can be a great option for any of the following cosmetic flaws:
- Chipped teeth
- Eroded or unusually small teeth
- Small spaces between teeth
- Stubborn stains
- Slightly crooked teeth that do not require full orthodontic treatment
Dr. Dooley will carefully examine your teeth, and you will discuss your treatment goals. Through this process, he will determine whether bonding and/or contouring is a good option for you.
The Benefits of Treatment
Because dental bonding and contouring can achieve such diverse results, the two procedures can have a transformative effect on your smile and overall appearance. Affordable bonding and contouring can help you look younger and healthier, and they can increase your self-confidence. After treatment, you may be more ready than ever before to share your smile with those around you.
