What Is Dental Bonding and Contouring?
Bonding and contouring are cosmetic dentistry treatments in Roseville, CA offered by Dr. Binon and his dental staff. Dental professionals primarily use bonding to repair cracked, chipped, and broken teeth. Dental contouring is the process of reshaping your teeth if they're misaligned. Here is a brief summary of what the procedures provide:
- Smooth out teeth with jagged edges
- Lengthen or shorten teeth
- Fill in cracked or chipped teeth
- Fix discolored teeth that don't respond to whitening treatments
- Realign crooked teeth
If you want to conceal cracks or chips in your teeth, dentists can apply a composite resin and bonding agent to smooth out the uneven surfaces caused by broken or chipped teeth. Dentists remove a slight amount of enamel on the affected teeth then place the resin and bonding agent on the area.
After placement, dentists can sculpt the area to look like a natural tooth. Dental bonding is a pain-free, cost-effective treatment to restore a natural-looking smile.
If you want to lengthen a tooth that is too short or shorten a tooth that is too long, dentists use contouring to smooth out a tooth's shape. Some dentists use a specialized drill to grind small amounts of a tooth while simultaneously maintaining most of its tissue, aesthetics and functionality.
Other dentists use a laser to remove a precise amount of enamel on an affected tooth. Once the procedure is complete, the dentist will check the alignment of your bite to ensure your teeth are aligned properly.
Both procedures are simple, straightforward, and non-evasive. You also don't need anesthesia during the procedure and won't require pain medication after the procedure. Additionally, both treatments are permanent — so you will not need more treatments in the future to reshape your teeth.
