What Is Dental Bonding and Contouring?

You can't always avoid accidents. You may take a bad fall and chip your tooth. It's also possible that a tooth can become discolored for a number of reasons, such as a medication or illness. Dr. Hal Kussick performs bonding and contouring to improve these small cosmetic flaws at his office in Seattle, WA. A fast, effective cosmetic treatment, bonding and contouring applies composite resin (also used for tooth-colored fillings) to cover discoloration, reduce gaps in your teeth, lengthen a tooth, or even improve the shape of a tooth. For an effective way to improve your teeth, schedule an appointment to get more information about bonding and contouring at Dental@888.

What Should I expect with dental bonding and contouring?

Bonding and contouring can treat chips, gaps, cracks, discoloration, short teeth, teeth shape, and more. Bonding and contouring is a more affordable cosmetic dental treatment that we can usually complete in a single visit. It also doesn't require preparations, like crowns or veneers; however, it is not as strong and usually does not last as many years. Bonding and contouring is best for minor cosmetic flaws so a different cosmetic or restorative procedure may be a better option if you want more extensive improvements.

We can perform this procedure in our office, and you shouldn't need anesthesia. Once ready, Dr. Kussick will apply the bonding material to the desired teeth with the help of one of his assistants. The bonding material has to set before adding more layers. After the layers of composite resin have cured, Dr. Kussick will contour and smooth both the resin and your natural enamel for an even-looking appearance.
