Composite Resin Transforms Your Teeth

Tooth bonding is a process in which your cosmetic dentist applies tooth-colored composite resin to the surface of your tooth. Tooth contouring is the second step, in which your dentist will carefully and gently sculpt and smooth the bonded composite resin until they’ve achieved a natural-looking result, without altering your teeth’s natural structure.

This treatment can address issues like:

  • Severe staining
  • Chipped, fractured, or slightly cracked teeth
  • Diastema, or a gap between two teeth
  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • And more

Teeth Bonding and Contouring FAQs

How is it that this procedure can be done so quickly?

Dental bonding and contouring is a one-visit way to upgrade your smile. It takes such a short amount of time because the composite resin dries quickly when exposed to a special UV light. Then, it often takes only a few minutes for our dentist to shape the resin into the shape of a natural tooth.

Will people be able to tell I’ve had my teeth bonded?

In general, no one will know that you’ve had any work done. We can even match the resin to the color of your surrounding teeth for the most natural look – or use the resin to conceal stains on certain teeth, without having to grind away your enamel.

Does teeth bonding and contouring require sedation?
Preserving your healthy tooth structure is just as important as perfecting your smile. For some cosmetic blemishes, dental bonding and contouring is minimally invasive, but provides highly effective results in as little as one office visit, and sedation is not necessary.
