New Year Tooth Bonding and ContouringDo you want to ring in the new year with a more beautiful smile? Are you tired of feeling insecure because of noticeable imperfections in your smile? Worried that all cosmetic improvements take months or even years to complete? If so, think again. It’s time to stop trying to hide your teeth problems and to learn how your cosmetic dentist can help, instead. Treatments like tooth bonding and contouring can help to quickly enhance your smile’s natural beauty, allowing you to start your next season on a much brighter note, ready show off your gorgeous new smile.

What Is Cosmetic Bonding?

Bonding is a minimally invasive procedure, one which can address a number of esthetic concerns. From small chips or cracks, to permanent staining that whitening alone cannot address, to small gaps between two teeth and oddly shaped or too-small teeth, bonding can be used to correct many common problems.

First, the dentist applies a composite resin material to the teeth. He or she will then carefully sculpt the material until imperfections have been hidden and a more symmetrical, unified-looking smile has been created. The material is then hardened using a special light, and polished so that it closely matches your natural teeth’s sheen. This helps create a seamless enhancement, so people won’t notice your dental work. They’ll only see your lovely smile!

Perhaps best of all, tooth bonding is one of the fastest and most affordable forms of cosmetic treatment available, making it ideal for anyone with limited time or funds available for treatment. In most cases bonding can be completed in less than an hour, and provides durable enhancements.

How Does Contouring Help?

Contouring is similar, in that it can be completed quickly in-office, and it relies on the dentist’s own artistry. By gently filing away portions of the teeth that are disproportionally large, the dentist can use contouring to create a much more uniform smile.
