A dental flaw can seem small in the abstract, but your reality can be a frustrating change to your smile. Some patients will come in for cosmetic dental treatment looking for help with a congenital issue. For instance, you may have an unusually small tooth, or one that is not the appropriate shape. Dental damage can also be a source of unwanted alteration. Bonding and contouring offer your dentist a method for making discreet, natural-looking changes to your smile by correcting these irritating dental flaws. If you have a question about how to best solve a particular cosmetic problem, a consultation to determine the right cosmetic dental treatment can help move you closer to your preferred appearance.
Preparing For A Dental Bonding And Contouring Treatment
Bonding and contouring offer big improvements with relatively little alteration. Bonding sees your dentist apply composite resin to a tooth’s surface in order to hide chips, cracks, or abnormalities that make the tooth stand out. This can even be a one-visit solution for covering a gap in your smile, by making a small tooth look to be larger. For uneven or unfortunately large teeth, contouring can make careful corrections by having portions of teeth safely shaved into a more appropriate shape and size.
Learning Your Cosmetic Dental Options
A cosmetic consultation is an opportunity to develop a greater appreciation for how your dentist can help your smile. Unlike a routine dental checkup, which emphasizes attention on your oral health needs, a cosmetic consultation allows you more time to focus on the appearance of your smile.
