What Is Dental Bonding and Contouring?
There are times when accidents cannot be avoided. You may trip over something and chip a tooth. Sometimes a tooth can get discolored for any number of reasons, such as an illness or medication. Dr. Catherine Young and Dr. Jared Young offer dental bonding and contouring to improve certain cosmetic flaws. This quick, effective treatment uses composite resin, which is the same material used for tooth-colored fillings, to mask tooth discoloration, reduce gaps in your teeth, lengthen a tooth, or even change a tooth's shape. For an effective treatment to enhance your smile, schedule an appointment to get more information about dental bonding and contouring at Bright Young Smiles in Lighthouse Point, FL.

What to Expect from Dental Bonding and Contouring
Dental bonding and contouring is typically done during one visit to our office in Lighthouse Point, FL. You shouldn't need anesthesia, but options for sedation may be discussed during your appointment for issues, like anxiety or a strong gag reflex. Once you're ready, we will apply the bonding material to the necessary areas of your teeth. The bonding material will be hardened before more layers are added. Once the layers of composite resin are set, we will contour and smooth the material and your natural teeth for an even appearance. Following treatment, you should avoid staining foods and drinks for two days. Bonded and contoured teeth should be cared for just like natural teeth with daily flossing, brushing, and mouthwash. With good care, dental bonding can last up to ten years.
