Cosmetic contouring and bonding is an affordable, efficient, and minimally invasive way to reshape damaged teeth. The contouring process, which, like bonding, can often be completed in a single visit and involves gently removing the enamel layer of the damaged tooth, which is then gently reshaped. Cosmetic dental contouring can fix teeth that are too long, too short, misaligned, or crooked (significant spacing, bite, or alignment problems may require orthodontic treatment).

Cosmetic bonding can be used in conjunction with contouring, or as a stand-alone treatment for mild to moderate chips, cracks, stains, and discolorations. A resin material made of a combination of glass, plastic, or porcelain is bonded onto the surface of the tooth. Bonding can drastically improve the function and cosmetic appearance of your teeth, making them whiter, straighter and more symmetrical, without the need to invest in more expensive and time-consuming dental treatments. With proper at home oral hygiene care and regular visits to the dentist for check-ups and professional dental cleanings, bonding, and cosmetic contouring can deliver lasting results.
