Artistic Smile Improvement with Bonding & Contouring
Cosmetic dentistry has two main goals – to improve your smile’s esthetic appeal, and to help support as much of your natural tooth structure as possible. To that end, tooth bonding and contouring are often the best choices. With a highly experienced and artistic eye, Dr. Johnson-G’Sell can correct a multitude of cosmetic issues by creating a beautiful, blemish-free smile with minimal alterations to your teeth.
Maximum Results with Minimal Alteration
Tooth bonding describes placing tooth-colored composite resin on the surface of a tooth to improve its color, size, shape, or spacing. Dr. Johnson-G’Sell will custom tint the resin to match your tooth’s unique color and shade, then place the resin on the tooth, sculpt it to match the tooth’s ideal contour, and cure the resin so that it remains durably in place for years to come.
For teeth that have jagged or protruding edges, rough areas of tooth enamel, or that seem too large, Dr. Johnson-G’Sell may be able to improve their appearance by lightly sculpting the area. Tooth contouring focuses on gently reshaping the tooth so that it fits more appropriately with the rest of your smile.
