What Questions Should You Ask About Bonding And Contouring?

If you often catch yourself staring at a part of your smile that makes you self-conscious, cosmetic dental work can be of interest to you. Cosmetic treatments can help people with major smile flaws, but a procedure can also be ideal for relatively minor flaws that seem to attract more attention than you would prefer. At our Ankeny, IA dental practice, we have experience restoring and revitalizing smiles through dental bonding and contouring. Teeth that look unattractive because of their shape, size, or color can be carefully improved through contouring work, and by applying a durable composite resin material to their surfaces. In as little as one appointment, you can finally be free of the problems that have made you uncomfortable with your appearance!

Bonding And Contouring Procedures Lead To Big Changes With Minimal Change To Your Tooth Structure

While the results of bonding and contouring treatments can be striking, the actual process of restoring your smile can be more conservative than you expect. This approach to cosmetic care will not require the creation and placement of any restorations. Because of this, the time of your treatment can be reduced, and the changes to your tooth structure can be minimized. Your contouring treatment will see your dentist carefully remove excess enamel in order to make desirable changes to a tooth’s shape. Bonding treatments use biocompatible composite resin to cover flaws that currently affect the way you look. Depending on the number of teeth you want to restore, this work can be complete in just a single visit.

How Can A Bonding And Contouring Procedure Change Your Smile?

Bonding and contouring work can be beneficial in many different circumstances. Through contouring, we can correct the shape of teeth that appear sharp, uneven, or otherwise misshapen. This work is also beneficial for people who have teeth that appear to be too large. Bonding treatments hide damages like chips and cracks, restore the color of enamel, and add size to smaller teeth. Because this treatment can help in so many different situations, many people who want cosmetic work can have their desired improvements made through this one procedure.

Is This The Right Cosmetic Procedure For You?

While bonding and contouring work is effective in many different situations, it is not the only cosmetic treatment that we provide our patients. For people who feel uncomfortable with the way teeth stains are affecting their smile, we can arrange a professional teeth whitening treatment. We also provide porcelain veneers to help cover up superficial flaws that affect teeth. Veneers are placed over the front of teeth in order to hide damages and naturally occurring flaws. Their custom designs help patients address all of their cosmetic concerns, and the porcelain material used for their construction ensure that you can show off your improved smile for many years!
