Bonding and contouring is a cosmetic dental procedure that may be used to correct natural flaws in teeth, repair chipped teeth, protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede, close gaps or change the shape of teeth.
Bonding will cover the flaw by applying a thin coating of a composite material on the tooth. After this, the dentist will shape it to provide a pleasing result that will blend with your tooth anatomy and color. A high-intensity light then hardens the plastic, and the surface is finely polished so the tooth looks natural.
