Don’t let an imperfect smile steal your confidence and dreams. Studies show, people with an attractive smile are considered friendlier, more intelligent, and more successful. If your front teeth are oddly spaced, chipped, or misshapen, cosmetic bonding or contouring can reshape them for a beautiful smile. Bonding adds more structure to teeth to fill spaces and chips, while contouring reshapes existing tooth enamel, softening the edges of sharp or jagged teeth.
Often, we perform bonding and contouring together for optimal outcome. If Dr. Maria Cardenas is contouring a tooth, she will use a special tool to reshape the tooth’s edge.
