Bonding and Contouring

Perfecting Reno Smiles – in One Visit!

Think you’re too swamped for cosmetic dental repairs? We have some good news! We offer cosmetic dentistry solutions like cosmetic bonding and contouring that can beautify your smile – fast!

Beauty for Busy People

Everyone is busy these days. Between work, school involvement, after-school sports and extracurricular activities, and chores, there seems to be barely time to relax. Don’t we know it! When your schedule is hectic, finding time to see the dentist can be tough – especially if you are trying to make time for perfecting your smile.

Dr. Evans listens to and works with patients to create a treatment we call a “smile reshape or shape-up.” This is where we apply cosmetic bonding to your anterior teeth. They consist of six front teeth on both the upper and lower jaw. We recommend composite bonding to fill in voids, fix areas of misshapen teeth, and address discolorations. Contouring can also be used to remove sharp points or unwanted unevenness from your smile. What we love most about Reno cosmetic bonding and contouring is that there’s usually no anesthetic necessary, and results are:

  • Nearly instant
  • Quick
  • Amazing

Patients are always amazed, love the immediate improvement, and feel extremely gratified with their smile reshape makeover.

Who is Cosmetic Bonding and Contouring For?

Even small imperfections can change the way you feel about your smile. If:

  • Blemishes
  • Damage
  • Chips
  • Pits
  • Cracks
  • Unevenness
  • Rough edges
  • Crookedness
  • Gaps
  • Discoloration

are limiting your smile’s potential, but you really don’t want to invest the time and resources in porcelain veneers and crowns, cosmetic bonding and contouring might be just the solution you have been looking for. Because both contouring and bonding are completed directly on your teeth, right here in our comfortable office, there is no need to wait for a lab, no need for temporaries, and no return visit for placement. Just a perfect smile you can show off right away.

What is Cosmetic Bonding?

If you are reading this, we applaud your technical interest! We love it when our patients are as interested in dentistry as we are, but we’ll try to keep it simple:

  • The process of adding to tooth structure is called bonding
  • The practice of reshaping teeth by removing tooth structure is known as re-contouring

For bonding, Dr. Evans will use composite resin, the same material used for tooth-colored fillings, to close a gap or repair a chip. Bonding is tinted to match the existing tooth structure, so the restoration is seamless in an all-white smile. Bonding can also be used as a permanent teeth whitening solution. The bonding material is carefully shaded to your specifications, applied to the tooth in several thin layers, hardened or “cured” with a special light, and sculpted to look naturally pleasing. It takes an artist’s eye and unyielding attention to detail – but with Dr. Evans’ skill and experience, you can expect a completely transformed smile and fully functioning teeth, in one, simple, painless visit.

Caring for Your Cosmetic Bonding

Now that you have the smile of your dreams, keep it beautiful and healthy with continuing care from Dr. Evans and our Reno dental team. Because composite material can stain, it is important that you keep up with your professional hygiene and always make sure you are brushing and flossing regularly. Cosmetic bonding from Reno’s Wager Evans Dental is made to last, but proper care will ensure the long-term beauty of your smile.

I’ve been going to Wager Evans Dental for years now and have only great things to say about Dr. Evans and all the wonderful people who work there. They always clearly explain what to expect and why we’re doing it. Not only do they provide dental services but also education and tools for home at the same time. My dental health has improved as a result. Thanks so much to everyone at Wager Evans Dental!
