Tooth Bonding & Contouring in Wilmington


Not everyone who has tooth damage or staining needs porcelain veneers. Some cosmetic issues can be addressed with the simple artistry of dental bonding & contouring. When teeth are uneven, chipped, broken or damaged in some other way, dental bonding allows us to reshape and repair using a carefully blended tooth colored resin. Very little of the original tooth structure is removed, yet bonding can quickly create a more aesthetically pleasing and vibrant look. Bonding is so painless that it usually requires no anesthesia and it is relatively inexpensive.

After color matching the resin bonding material to your natural teeth, it is applied in multiple coats. These coats are sculpted and shaped to provide an attractive, natural-looking result. A high-intensity light hardens the plastic. Finally, the surface is brought to an elegant polish. Your smile will look just the way nature intended!

Another simple treatment that can instantly make a dramatic difference in your smile is tooth contouring. Tooth contouring is perfect for anyone who has an uneven tooth line, overly prominent canines, long or disproportionate front teeth or worn teeth that are out of proportion to your other teeth. It can also be used to quickly buff out chips and cracks.
