What Is Dental Bonding And Contouring?
Our dentists specialize in transforming teeth that are cosmetically flawed, such as gaps, minor chips and discoloration. Much like a sculptor molding clay into beautiful form, the dental bonding process begins with our dentist carefully applying dental resin directly to your tooth and skillfully shaping it into the desired result. Once perfected, this resin is cured using UV light for a lasting solution – giving you a stunning smile.
Afterward, your new tooth is carefully crafted and refined to blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile. The entire process takes less than an hour per tooth and it does not require any invasive treatments or procedures; making it a perfect choice for anyone looking to improve their pearly whites without surgery.
Much like bonding, contouring is created to provide a person with enhanced aesthetics of their smile without making drastic alterations to the tooth structure. During this treatment, our dentist will delicately reshape some enamel from your teeth in order to diminish dental issues such as misaligned incisors, jagged edges, minor chips and pointed bicuspids (frequently known as “vampire teeth”).

Grasping How Bonding Works
A single visit to ACE Dental of Texas is all it takes for dental bonding – no waiting around required. The entire process typically requires between 30-60 minutes, starting with a thorough cleaning. Our friendly team will make sure that you leave feeling confident in your own smile again.
To ensure the dental resin clings securely, your teeth will be brushed with a special solution to slightly roughen the enamel. Afterwards, one of our experienced doctors will choose a shade of resin that matches your tooth’s color and meticulously apply it onto each surface.
To restore the look of your tooth, expert dental tools are used to shape and size a special resin material. After the molded resin is hardened with UV light, it will be further refined for a more natural appearance. To complete this process, the bonded tooth will then be buffed and polished until it looks picture perfect.
Common Issues Treated By Dental Bonding & Contouring
Does your smile have various aesthetic issues but no oral health problems such as periodontal illness, cavities, or major orthodontic difficulties? If so, you could be a perfect candidate for dental bonding.
Dental bonding provides a quick solution for various cosmetic issues, including gaps between teeth, misshapen and small teeth, minor chipping of enamel, and even severe discoloration that whitening cannot attend to.
Furthermore, when combined with enameloplasty (shaping & contouring), it can help correct uneven or crooked teeth – giving you the beautiful straight smile that you have always wanted. However, please note that dental bonding should not be used in case of cavities or other oral health concerns nor major orthodontic problems such as multiple misaligned teeth or jaw malpositioning.
