Bonding and Contouring

If chips, gaps, discolored and misshapen teeth limit your smile’s potential, cosmetic bonding and contouring offer a fast, effective solution. With bonding and contouring, Dr. Evans quickly corrects these flaws to deliver a more pleasing overall appearance. We understand your schedule can be hectic and finding time to see the dentist can be tough. Fortunately, cosmetic bonding and contouring are both minimally invasive cosmetic procedures that can be completed in just one visit.

What is Cosmetic Bonding?

The process of adding to tooth structure is called bonding. We refer to the practice of reshaping teeth by removing tooth structure as re-contouring. Usually, bonding and contouring occur during one appointment and may be performed separately or in conjunction with one another. For bonding, Dr. Evans will use composite resin, the same material used for all-white 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 material will be applied to the tooth in several thin layers. Dr. Evans will then use a special light to cure the composite bonding material and sculpt the tooth. In one visit, we can completely transform the appearance of your teeth and restore full function to your smile.

Caring for Your Cosmetic Bonding

When you receive the cosmetic bonding, Dr. Evans and his team at Wager Evans Dental will go over all aftercare with you. Cosmetic bonding can become discolored if not taken care of properly and it is important to always make sure you are brushing and flossing regularly. Keep a relationship with Dr. Evans by making your regular dental hygiene appointments and ensure the cosmetic bonding will last.
