Smile Touchups that Preserve Healthy Teeth

If you have one or more teeth that are lightly chipped or cracked, or that have jagged edges and overlap other teeth, then bonding and contouring may offer a conservative solution for improving your smile. Tooth bonding means building up tooth structure using tooth-colored composite resin. Tooth contouring describes carefully sculpting or smoothing the outer layers of a tooth for a more cosmetically appealing size, shape, and texture.

A More Conservative Option

Aside from improving your smile quickly, one of the main benefits of bonding and contouring is that they produce minimal alterations to your teeth. This allows you to preserve a maximum amount of your healthy tooth structure, which improves their long-term health and integrity. For some patients, bonding and contouring can offer a more conservative alternative to more complex improvements, such as porcelain veneers.
