Cosmetic smile improvement is about more than just making your smile more attractive; the preservation of your healthy tooth structure is equally important. For many cosmetic blemishes, tooth bonding and contouring can offer minimally invasive but highly effective results. Tooth bonding, which describes applying tooth-colored composite resin to your tooth, can address concerns such as severe tooth staining, chipped or slightly cracked teeth, excessive spaces between teeth, and more. By contrast, contouring means gently sculpting a tooth to correct rough areas, jagged and overlapping edges, and more. Both bonding and contouring allow your dentist to improve your smile’s appearance without significantly altering your teeth’s natural structures.

The Benefits of Bonding and Contouring

Tooth bonding and contouring are highly effective cosmetic procedures, but their benefits extend beyond their ability to improve cosmetic blemishes. By minimizing the amount of work needed to fix your smile, bonding and contouring can help you preserve your smile’s natural beauty and prolong your overall dental health.
