The smile is such an important part of who we are, our personalities, and a reflection of how we feel about ourselves. Yet, so many individuals are self-conscious about their teeth and often feel concerned or embarrassed over their appearance. Even minor cosmetic imperfections in the smile can have a major impact on self-esteem and the willingness to communicate freely with others. But when it comes to improving the look of the smile, cosmetic dentistry from a skilled team can help.
If you have aspects about your front teeth that you would like to improve, the talented team at Cosmetic Dental Associates in Houston, TX invites you to learn about the solution of dental bonding and contouring. Performed in our state-of-the-art practice by cosmetic dentists Dr. Matt Guerre and Dr. Spiker Davis, dental bonding and contouring is a quick procedure that can repair minor aesthetic flaws and deliver smile rejuvenation in a simple, convenient visit.
Overcome Several Types of Smile Imperfections
Dental bonding and contouring is the process of adding tooth-colored composite material to the teeth to improve their shape, size, color, length, and other cosmetic characteristics. Once attached, the bonding material and tooth structure are contoured and polished for a seamless finish that looks and feels like natural, beautiful tooth enamel.
Dental bonding and contouring from our Houston, TX cosmetic dentists may be a great cosmetic treatment option if you have smile concerns that include:
- Rough biting edges
- Discolored tooth enamel
- Minor spaces between teeth
- Short, narrow, or irregular teeth
- Cracked or fractured teeth
Tooth Reshaping for Smile Rejuvenation
Bonding and contouring at Cosmetic Dental Associates is typically performed in the front of the mouth and can be used to enhance the fronts, sides, backs, and biting edges of teeth. To begin the bonding and contouring procedure, cosmetic dentists Dr. Guerre and Dr. Davis clear the tooth surfaces of any plaque or bacteria and prime the teeth with a special solution. They then specifically select the color of composite material that matches your enamel shade. Once the material is applied to the tooth, our dentists use a curing light to harden the material and bond it to your teeth. This process is repeated in the affected areas, usually those falling within the smile zone. When the composite material is set, our skilled cosmetic dentists will reshape each tooth and bonding using advanced dental handpieces, taking special care to contour each tooth to replicate the anatomy and aesthetic qualities of natural teeth. The end result of dental bonding and contouring is a rejuvenated smile that looks and feels more uniform, balanced, and attractive.
