Cosmetic Dental Bonding and Contouring in San Diego

you’ve just resigned yourself to living with your flawed smile because you think cosmetic dentistry is just for famous people with tons of money. Well, you may be surprised and pleased to learn that improving your smile can actually be very simple and affordable. You don’t always need a full set of custom veneers to get the smile you want. In many cases, it’s as quick and easy as having some cosmetic bonding and/or dental contouring work done. Bonding and contouring are great options if you have teeth with irregular edges or just have some small problems with a single tooth or a few teeth.


Dental bonding involves adding a strong composite resin to build up the existing tooth, filling in any chips and sculpting a perfect tooth. This composite is carefully made to perfectly match the shade of your teeth, so it blends in seamlessly. It is very durable and becomes part of your tooth for all purposes. In many situations, bonding can be a fast, low-cost alternative to veneers.


While bonding adds material to the existing tooth, contouring involves carefully shaping the existing tooth by removing small amounts of the tooth, usually around the edges. This can help create a more even smile and can get rid of the appearance of chipped or worn teeth. Bonding and contouring are often offered in conjunction, working together to improve your smile and perfect each individual flawed tooth.
