Tooth Bonding & Cosmetic Contouring
Cosmetic Contouring and dental tooth bonding are techniques that are used to alter the shape of worn or chipped teeth to reestablish harmony, balance and beauty to a smile. Dental bonding is an effective tool that Dr. Moreau utilizes to repair damaged teeth or enhance a smile.
Dental Tooth Bonding
Dental bonding is a simple procedure generally completed in a one visit where Dr. Moreau uses the highest quality composite material to create a more pleasing contour to teeth and improve the smile. While the results can be quite dramatic and highly aesthetic, tooth bonding may require more frequent touch-ups or replacements as compared to porcelain veneers. Tooth bonding may be used to:
- restore worn, chipped, broken, discolored, stained, yellow, crooked, misshaped teeth
- close spaces between teeth
- protect teeth from decay
Cosmetic Contouring is a procedure that Dr. Moreau frequently uses to the slightly reshape teeth so as to create a more pleasing contour and smile. It is a minor procedure that can have dramatic effects on the beauty of a smile. Sometimes Dr. Moreau will combine aesthetic tooth reshaping along with dental bonding to create the desired effect.
Dental Bonding, Cosmetic Contouring, Porcelain Crowns or Veneers?
Although cosmetic contouring and dental bonding can be completed in a single visit, sometimes the dental situation or patient desired effect requires more permanent treatment. At that point dental crowns or veneers might be considered for their longevity, durability and beauty.
