Contouring or enamel bonding is one of the most effective and affordable treatments we offer. The treatment involves using white composite filling material to enhance and change the shape and size of the teeth.
The treatment is painless and can be completed in one appointment. Contouring is not harmful to your own teeth as it is non invasive and is a fully reversible treatment. The treatment involves bonding composite filling material to the surface of your teeth which is then shaped and highly polished.
The results are very impressive and look so natural as the composite blends seamlessly with your own teeth. We can focus on just one or two teeth or do a full smile makeover. Composite bonding also provides a great finishing touch following other treatments such as orthodontics.
We recommend whitening the teeth before contouring to give the best results. This can be done with Zoom! In clinic whitening or with a home whitening kit. Your dentist will discuss the options with you. All our dentists are highly skilled and experienced so you will be guaranteed to leave with a Hollywood smile!
Composite bonding can treat a range of dental issues including:
Chipped or broken teeth
Gaps between teeth
Discoloured or white marked teeth
Poorly shaped teeth
Small short teeth
