Tooth-Colored Composite Resin
There are almost countless blemishes and combinations of blemishes that could affect a tooth’s appearance. Fortunately, many of them can be addressed with conservative, tooth-colored composite resin, which is tinted according to your tooth’s unique color. Known as tooth bonding, the cosmetic procedure describes applying the resin to the surface of your tooth in the affected area, then sculpting and polishing the resin to blend in almost seamlessly with your tooth. Cosmetic bonding is often recommended for a variety of issues, including chipped, unevenly spaced, worn down, and lightly cracked teeth, to name just a few.
Artistic Tooth Sculpting
When a tooth needs some of its structure reshaped rather than bolstered with bonding, Dr. Bailey can suggest tooth contouring, which is the gentle sculpting of your tooth’s outer layer. Contouring is the complement to tooth bonding, and both procedures may be performed together to completely improve your smile’s symmetry and uniformity. For optimal comfort and results, we may be able to use advanced laser technology to contour your tooth, creating more precise results in much less time.
