Bonding and recontouring are dental procedures used to treat discoloration and chipped teeth in order to restore the natural look of the smile.
At Sycamore Creek Dental, these procedures help patients fix minor flaws in the smile as well as strengthen weakened areas in teeth.
Similar to composite fillings, dental bonding is a same-day treatment that repairs the natural look of teeth by filling minor holes and cracks with a tooth-colored resin substance. This cosmetic procedure fixes irregularities in the teeth and makes the seal invisible – resulting in a flawless smile. Dental bonding can also be used to fill gaps in teeth.
Ideal for reshaping teeth that have been damaged or look too long, dental recontouring helps patients achieve a uniform smile quickly. Typically completed in one visit, this painless procedure can also improve your dental health by removing crevices or overlaps between teeth where food and bacteria become trapped. In many cases, recontouring is often used along with other cosmetic treatments such as bonding and veneers.
Do I Need Bonding or Recontouring?
Bonding and recontouring are optional cosmetic procedures that can be performed if a patient is unhappy with the look of their smile. The ideal candidates for these procedures are individuals with:
- Chipped teeth
- Irregular or uneven teeth
- Sharp, long, or short canines
Speaking with your dentist about your goals will help determine which of these cosmetic treatment options is right for you.
