An Overview of Cosmetic Tooth Bonding and Contouring

If your teeth have minor imperfections, like chips, slight overlapping, or cracks, then crowns and veneers aren’t the only options. Cosmetic tooth bonding and contouring are simple, safe, and effective solutions for these small problems. Here is an overview of these procedures.

  • Cosmetic Bonding

During cosmetic bonding, a tooth-colored resin is applied to your teeth and shaped according to the desired outcome—filling cracks and chips and covering discoloration. Your dentist will match a particular resin to the exact shade of your tooth. The resin is then hardened with ultraviolet light, making the finish permanent. Finally, your dentist will polish the resin to replicate your teeth’s natural gleam. Dental bonding is affordable, painless, and typically takes under an hour.

  • Contouring

Tooth contouring is a simple procedure. Your dentist will take x-rays of the teeth to determine whether or not the tooth is suitable for the procedure. After marking the excess dental material with a pencil, your dentist will then file the parts of the tooth that need reshaping. Although your dentist will be wearing away parts of your teeth, this procedure generally does not require anesthesia and causes only slight discomfort.

  • The Benefits of Bonding and Contouring

Bonding and contouring allow people to change small aspects of their smile without spending money and time installing more drastic solutions such as veneers or crowns. These procedures still result in a great smile in a quicker and more cost-efficient way.

Manhattan Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Michael J. Wei Providing Lumineers

Manhattan Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Michael J. Wei is repairing teeth and providing smile makeovers to New York City area patients who have chipped or misaligned teeth.

“Lumineers” by Cerinate are a popular way to permanently repair chipped, damaged or misaligned teeth and provide patients with a complete “smile makeover” that makes them look and feel great.

Similar to porcelain veneers, Lumineers are porcelain “shells” that Dr. Wei adheres to the front of teeth to repair them. The advantage of Lumineers by Cerinate over porcelain veneers is they are a non-invasive and pain-free option to porcelain veneers. Lumineers give patients the same fantastic, natural-looking smile by repairing and/or straightening your teeth and with proper care, they can last a lifetime.

“Your lumineers will be designed to improve your smile, as well as your overall appearance,” stated Dr. Michael J. Wei.  “If you’ve fallen in love with smiles in magazines, bring the photos to your visit and we’ll help you design the perfect smile for you. I consider your existing teeth and your facial features such as your smile and face shape and skin tone when designing the perfect lumineers for you.”

Lumineers are a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment for correcting problems such as:

* Chipped and damaged teeth

* Misalignment of teeth

* Prominent canines (fangs)

* Bad bite

* Cavities

* Whitening stained teeth

Questions to Ask Your New Dentist on a First Visit

Regular visits to the dentist are the first step toward good oral hygiene. To best maintain your oral health, find a skilled dentist that offers you reassurance and comprehensive treatment. Here are a few questions to ask your new dentist to ensure you have a good fit:

  • Are you experienced?

Ask how long the dentist has been practicing and where they got their certifications. A long-time dentist may have a lot of experience, but a newer dentist will have a better grasp of the latest dental health advancements. Have your dentist explain their experience and how they keep up-to-date.

  • What anesthetics do you use?

Many dentists’ offices offer sedation to calm patients’ fears during visits. If sedation is something you’re interested in, then talk to your dentist about it. Otherwise, discuss the dentist’s usual procedure for anesthesia to make sure you’re comfortable.

  • What are my options for emergency care?

In the event that your dentist’s office is unavailable, have the dentist make a recommendation for emergency dental services. Find out what your options are so that you can be prepared in an emergency.

  • How can I improve my dental health?

Ask your dentist for advice on proper brushing, flossing, and rinsing, and other dental procedures that would benefit your dental health. Request other recommendations for healthy maintenance and if there are specific signs that signify improved oral hygiene.
