Cosmetic Teeth Contouring, Bonding and Reshaping
Cosmetic contouring and bonding are dental treatment which are used to improve the appearance of teeth that are crooked, chipped, cracked/fractured, pointy or worn out.
Composite dental bonding is a procedure in which plastic resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape, then trimmed and polished for a natural appearance. This is suitable for open areas like gaps, chipped teeth, or areas that need an increase in tooth surface, such as worn out teeth. Composite bonding can be used in these areas to increase tooth length without any damage to the underlying tooth. Read more about dental bonding here.
Minor cosmetic contouring and polishing is a reshaping procedure to smooth out minor crooked, chipped, fractured or pointy teeth. The thickness of your tooth enamel will need to be considered before use of this procedure as it involves re-sculpting of your existing teeth.

Both treatments are relatively quick processes done within a day, with minimal discomfort, however the smallest of changes to your teeth can make a big impact on your smile.
For some patients either contouring or bonding is recommended after they have had some orthodontic treatment, or combined with teeth whitening to provide a great smile makeover.
