Dental Bonding, Also Known as Cosmetic Contouring & What it Can Do for Your Smile

Dental bonding is the cosmetic practice of using the same substance used in tooth-colored fillings to correct smile deficiencies. Cosmetic contouring is something Dr. Mighion can leverage as an affordable cosmetic dental procedure to correct smile deficiencies in a variety of ways.

Cosmetic Contouring / Dental Bonding:

Do you have a gap between your two front teeth? Cosmetic contouring could be one option to consider for closing that gap. It is sometimes used to re-build a tooth that has a small chip. Some cosmetic dentists use dental bonding to cover a tooth that has a deep stain, such as tetracycline stains. Teeth whitening, dental veneers, and other options might also be something to consider but dental bonding is a highly versatile cosmetic dentistry option that can make a marked difference in the appearance of your smile.

Cosmetic bonding material is also used to help with other areas, such as with dental veneer bonding to the front of teeth, as part of the process of attaching dental crowns and fixed dental bridges.  It is bio-compatible and available in any shade so that it blends perfectly with your smile.

Keep in mind that with dental bonding used cosmetically, retouching may be necessary from time to time as staining can occur.

We also offer smile makeovers where we restore smiles filled with silver amalgam fillings using dental bonding material to restore your smile and make your new white fillings seamless. Check our smile gallery to view before and after photos of dental bonding and other cosmetic procedures.
