Bonding and Cosmetic Contouring Dental ConsultationHave you put off improving your smile because you assumed it would require extensive dental work? Although some issues do require complicated procedures, many minor flaws can be corrected with a simple treatment known as bonding and cosmetic contouring. Naperville, IL, cosmetic dentist Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi of Advance Family Dental Care provides the treatments and procedures you need to keep your smile healthy and attractive.

What happens during bonding and cosmetic contouring?

During the contouring phase of the treatment, your Naperville dentist uses a sanding drill or laser to remove tiny areas of your tooth enamel. Contouring improves small imperfections and can also be used to change the length or shape of teeth. The treatment is painless and requires no anesthesia.

After your dentist contours your teeth, bonding may be used to enhance their appearance. During the treatment, he applies a small amount of a putty-like material called composite resin to your teeth. Composite resin can be manipulated into any shape needed, yet bonds to the teeth when it's hardened with a curing light.

Can bonding and cosmetic contouring improve my smile?

Your dentist may recommend the treatment if:

  • You have chips at the bottom of your teeth. In many cases, you may only need contouring to smooth away small chips. If the chips are a little larger, bonding may be used to fill them in.
  • Your teeth are a little bumpy. Teeth aren't always perfectly smooth. If you have noticeable bumps or pits in your teeth, contouring and bonding offer a simple way to improve your smile.
  • The edges of your teeth overlap. Overlapping edges not only affect your appearance but also trap cavity-causing plaque. Cosmetic contouring removes the edges in seconds.
  • Your teeth are crooked. Although you'll need braces if you have an orthodontic issue, cosmetic contouring and bonding is an excellent solution of one or two teeth are crooked or unusually shaped.
  • One of your teeth is longer than the others. Contouring can help shorten teeth are too long.
  • Your bite has changed. Your teeth can move as you grow older, which can affect the way your teeth fit together. If your problem is minor, your dentist can use contouring to improve your bite.

Do you want to reshape one or more problem teeth? If so, dental contouring could be the answer.cosmetic contouring

We know that everyone has different needs and goals when it comes to getting the smile they want. If you thought there wasn’t a simple option out there that would improve the overall shape or size of a tooth then our Naperville, IL, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi, is here to set the record straight.

What is cosmetic contouring?

Do you have canines that are a bit too sharp and pointy? Do you have a tooth that is a bit shorter or uneven compared to the rest of your smile? If so, then you may be looking for a simple cosmetic tweak that will reshape the tooth. This is where cosmetic contouring comes in.

By shaving off very small amounts of enamel our Naperville dentist can easily make subtle yet necessary changes to your teeth to get a more symmetrical appearance. While cosmetic contouring isn’t designed to address more serious chips or other issues it can be a great, easy method for buffing away minor problem areas.

What can cosmetic contouring do for my smile?

Cosmetic contouring can improve subtle cracks, chips, overlaps and crowding. It can also be a great way to smooth away small pits in the surface of a tooth. If you are looking for cosmetic dentistry that is a bit more conservative than other options out there then this method may be the best option for you.

Of course, you will have to come in for a consultation to determine whether the changes you want to make can be done with cosmetic contouring. After all, there are limitations when it comes to this treatment; fortunately, if cosmetic contouring isn’t the best approach there are other wonderful cosmetic options that could give your smile the boost it needs.

Is cosmetic contouring painful?

Since this procedure is completely non-invasive it means that it can be done painlessly. While enamel is durable there are no nerves in this hard, outer surface of the tooth, which means that you won’t feel a thing. After all, we are only removing a couple millimeters of enamel. This can even be performed right here during your next routine cleaning, making it more than convenient to get the results you want when you want them.
