Bonding & Contouring

Dental Bonding

Bonding is one of the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental procedures we offer. By using tooth-colored material, known as composite resin, Dr. Foster is able to restore your tooth to its natural appearance. The application of composite resin takes just a single visit but can last for years. It is applied in liquid form over the affected tooth and then cured with a special light.

As a general rule, single tooth cosmetic bonding procedures can be performed on the same day as your dental visit. For more complex bonding, you may need to return for a second office visit.

Dental Contouring

Contouring can help those who have healthy teeth, but want to perfect their smile. Our contouring methods can repair the look of your smile by reshaping crooked, chipped, or irregularly shaped teeth.

First, Dr. Foster will take X-rays to determine if your teeth are strong enough to withstand reshaping. Because the procedure requires the reduction of enamel, it is important that there is enough healthy enamel left after shaping to protect against tooth sensitivity.
