Tooth Bonding/Contouring

Reshape Your Teeth with Bonding/Contouring

Tooth bonding and contouring describe two different but closely-related cosmetic dental procedures. Bonding involves tooth-colored composite resin, which is attached (or “bonded”) to a tooth’s surface. The resin is sculpted, hardened, and polished to create a highly-realistic, esthetically-pleasing finish.

By contrast, contouring describes gently reshaping a tooth by sculpting a small amount of its outer enamel. Whether performed separately or together, tooth bonding and contouring can create a new look for your smile with minimal changes to your natural tooth structure.

The Advantages of Tooth Bonding/Contouring

  • Bonding and contouring are designed to achieve major results with minor tooth alteration, which means you can improve your smile AND preserve as much of your natural tooth structure as possible.
  • Bonding and contouring are able to address a variety of different cosmetic dental issues, including stains and discoloration, chipped or jagged edges, and teeth that appear too large or too small.
  • The composite resin used for tooth bonding can also be used to fix a tooth (resin is the material used for tooth-colored fillings).
  • In many cases, tooth bonding and contouring can provide a less invasive alternative to porcelain veneers or cosmetic dental crowns.
