Questions and Answers

Question: Is it possible that I could choose either dental bonding or contouring for the same issue?

Answer: Generally speaking, one will provide you with better results than another. While you might be able to address a small chip with either bonding or contouring, for instance, there are multiple details to consider. We can help you figure out which solution is best.

Question: Is it usually challenging to determine which is better for a particular concern?

Answer: No! In most cases, it’s pretty cut and dry. This is because dental bonding is a cosmetic treatment that will allow you to fix problems with the addition of composite material, so you’ll need it when you need more tissue. Contouring takes tissue away, so you’ll require it when you have too much tissue or need something smoothed down.

Question: Is it possible to need both at the same time to make my smile look the way that I want?

Answer: Of course! Patients often worry that they cannot use both dental bonding and contouring but this is absolutely an option. Need to cover a blemish with bonding and shorten a long tooth with contouring? Done!
