What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a specialized cosmetic procedure that uses a dental resin to reshape the teeth. Dr. Overmyer uses advanced resins to fill in gaps and chips in teeth, reshape them, or address issues with color and staining.

The procedure is fast, convenient, and totally non-invasive. The first step is to “etch” the teeth that will be treated. This helps the resin adhere properly to the tooth. Then, the teeth are painted with a special liquid, which helps the resin stick to the tooth.

Next, dental resin is applied directly to each tooth which will be treated. Dr. Overmyer will shape and form this resin to fill in imperfections and cosmetic issues with each of your teeth. After the tooth has been properly shaped, a UV light is used to cure the resin, permanently. This process hardens the resin, providing a durable and long-lasting tooth restoration.

What is Dental Contouring?

Dental contouring is often used in conjunction with dental bonding. Dental contouring is used to remove minimal amounts of enamel from the teeth. This can be done with a dental drill. Dental contouring allows teeth to be shaped for a more attractive look.

Together, dental bonding and contouring allow for a totally comprehensive smile restoration. Existing teeth can be reshaped, and material can be added to smaller or damaged teeth, resulting in a perfect smile.

What Cosmetic Issues Can Be Treated With Bonding And Contouring?

Dental bonding and contouring typically only treats mild cosmetic issues, such as:

  • Chipped Teeth
  • Dicolored Teeth
  • Small gaps in teeth
  • Misshapen or overlapping teeth
  • Irregularly shaped or small teeth

For more severe issues, treatments like Invisalign or veneers may be required.

The Benefits Of Bonding And Contouring

Bonding and contouring have many benefits, when compared to other cosmetic dentistry procedures. Here are just a few of them.

  • Non-invasive – Bonding and contouring does not require any expensive or risky surgery and is totally non-invasive.
  • Fast treatment times – Treatment times can be as low as 30 minutes for each tooth, so you don’t have to worry about spending too much time in the dentist’s chair.
  • Instant results – Unlike veneers and crowns, you don’t have to wait several weeks to get the smile of your dreams!
  • Affordable – Bonding and contouring is typically cheaper than most alternative cosmetic procedures, like cosmetic crowns or porcelain veneers.
