How Does This Compare To Other Cosmetic Solutions?
Modern cosmetic dentistry comes in many forms: whitening, veneers, and bonding and contouring. It can be overwhelming to decide what the right solution is for you. There is no one-size-fits-all technique for your problems, so it is important to be well-informed of your choices. Veneers go over the tooth and function as a cover, giving the appearance of a bright, healthy smile. Professional whitening lifts stains from your enamel, but the downside is that not all teeth respond well to whitening or achieve the desired effect. Bonding and contouring are methods used to create a symmetrical-looking smile. This can correct chipped or damaged teeth or change the shape of teeth that do not fit well in your smile line.
Bonding your tooth is the process of taking a resin material and adhering it to the tooth. This helps improve the appearance of chipped or cracked teeth. This is a great solution if you are looking for something that will blend in naturally with your teeth.
Contouring is a solution for people who dislike the shape or size of their teeth. Whether you have large, jagged, or rough patches on your teeth, shaving them down can help with this insecurity. The dentist will resize your teeth by shaving down a small portion of your enamel until the desired effect is reached.
The benefit of this solution rather than veneers or tooth whitening is that this is less invasive. You can choose to get both contouring and bonding done, or just one of these procedures done.
What Does Aftercare Look Like?
It is important to note that this is not a replacement for dental hygiene. Even though your smile may look better, that does not necessarily mean that you are healthy. Following this procedure, be sure to maintain a regular oral hygiene routine and continue seeing your dentist twice a year. Contouring is a permanent solution and will last a lifetime. Resin material bonded to your tooth can be long-lasting so long as you take care of your oral health. If the material falls off, the dentist can re-seal this with a new one if needed or necessary
