Cosmetic Contouring

This is a simple procedure in which small corrections are made to your teeth to level uneven smile lines. Front teeth that are worn, pointed, or chipped can be re-shaped with a disc.   Bonding is used in some cases to reshape single teeth, close very small gaps and repair any slight defects, such as chipped teeth. The composite is chosen to match the colour translucency and consistency of your natural teeth and is then moulded to the desired shape, before being set with an ultra violet light. This is carried out over one appointment and is very effective. For those who have severe discoloration to their teeth and where whitening has not provided the anticipated result, i.e. through tetracycline staining, porcelain veneers then becomes the only other option for whitening your teeth. However, the results have been very impressive.
