Cosmetic Dental Bonding And Contouring

One-Appointment Bonding

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

It is often misunderstood why cosmetic dentistry procedures are habitually complicated and inconvenient for patients. However, this is not always the case. Dental bonding and contouring is considered a cosmetic dentistry procedure, yet it is a lot easier and quicker than most cosmetic procedures. It often produces amazing results and more beautiful smiles!

The office of Dr. Priti Naik wants you to be happy with your smile. If you have a chipped tooth or a slight misalignment that you believe affects your smile, dental bonding may be your solution. Dental bonding isn’t like most cosmetic procedures and may only consist of one appointment to our office. Cosmetic bonding and contouring can be an ideal method to repair, or radically improve, any imperfections in your smile.

Dental bonding is a relatively simple procedure that can produce big results! The procedure involves using dental composite, or resin to correct flaws in your teeth. Bonding can be used to correct discolored stains, large teeth gaps, and chipped or oddly shaped teeth. The procedure specifically entails the application of the liquid resin to the affected area, using a layering process. Once the layering of the resin is complete, sculpting tools are utilized to shape and subsequently polish the resin into perfect conformity.

Dental contouring is similar to dental bonding in the relative simplicity of the procedure and the use of the dental resin to fix imperfections. Contouring is often a typical procedure used to fix serrated or excessively pointed teeth, unevenly elongated teeth, and/or overlying teeth. Contouring involves mainly the smoothing over of the affected area. The procedure involves reshaping the shape of your teeth to perfect your smile. Contouring can even create other benefits like an easier ability to clean between teeth that were once overlapping. This type of cosmetic dentistry is very applicable to overall teeth/mouth health.

Cosmetic bonding is often a great option for patients looking for a quick, easy, and effective fix to their chipped or imperfect teeth. The liquid resin blends seamlessly with your normal teeth creating an outstanding smile that can lead to a fast growth in confidence.

Cosmetic bonding and contouring is often a much more affordable, and a more attractive alternative to more complex cosmetic dental procedures like porcelain veneers or replacement teeth. When it comes to dental bonding, the resin may eventually need touch ups. However, the benefits of the cheaper and simpler procedure can mean your smile can be greatly improved in just one visit to the office, compared to the potentially multifaceted replacement procedures that can tend to be more complex and intense.
