Bonding/Contouring

Cosmetic Tooth Bonding and Contouring

The dual goals of cosmetic dentistry are to improve the look of your smile while simultaneously preserving the integrity of your healthy, natural teeth and oral tissues. To this end, issues like chipped, worn, slightly misshapen, and oddly spaced teeth can often be corrected with minimally invasive procedures that require little or no tooth alteration. Cosmetic tooth bonding and contouring are popular for their dramatic results and equally nondramatic procedures. Bonding a tooth means using tooth-colored composite resin to change its shape, size, or color, while contouring describes lightly sculpting the tooth’s surface to improve its overall contour.

If you want to improve your smile in the most conservative manner possible, then bonding and contouring may be your ideal option. To learn more, schedule a consultation by calling our dental office in Del Mar, California, today at 858-755-0187.
