Aesthetic Recontouring/Bonding

Sometimes small changes to the appearance of your teeth can make a big difference to your overall smile. You might feel that your teeth need to be a more uniform shape or size, or have small fracture lines or gaps that need closing. Aesthetic recontouring or bonding are both minimally invasive techniques that we can use to enhance the appearance of your teeth.

Aesthetic Recontouring/Bonding Frequently Asked Questions

What is aesthetic recontouring?

Aesthetic recontouring is where we alter the size, length, shape or surface of a tooth by using special bonding materials which blend in to the form and colour of the tooth, or by minimal trimming.

Why have aesthetic recontouring?

Aesthetic recontouring is an alternative to more invasive cosmetic treatments such as crowns, veneers and braces. It uses a conservative approach to add balance and symmetry to your smile. Most aesthetic recontouring can be carried out in a single visit – you may not even need anesthesia.

Will aesthetic recontouring damage my teeth?

With aesthetic recontouring, we may remove tiny amounts of your tooth enamel to eliminate any imperfections or subtly change the shape of a tooth. It may be necessary to trim your tooth, but we would not enter the inner sensitive areas of a tooth to do this. Once the tooth has been reshaped, we will polish it to give you a smooth finish.

What problems can aesthetic recontouring treat?

Aesthetic recontouring is ideal if you have minor imperfections to your smile that you would like to improve. This might be:

  • • Small chips or breaks
  • • Bulges or pits in your tooth enamel
  • • Long, fang-like canines
  • • Irregular-shaped teeth

What is tooth bonding?

Tooth bonding is a way of covering or masking any small flaws in your teeth. By sculpting, shaping and colouring a special material bonded to the front of your teeth, we can create a flawless finish. In conjunction with recontouring, we are able to improve the appearance of your teeth vastly, and with minimal intervention.

How long does this treatment take?

The length of the treatment will depend on your individual case and how many teeth need aesthetic recontouring or bonding. Once we have a clear idea of what needs to be done, we will discuss your treatment plan and the number of appointments needed.
