Understanding The Basics

What Is Bonding, Shaping & Contouring?

Dental bonding is the process of using a special composite resin to reshape and restore your teeth. In this process, the resin is applied directly to your tooth, and then is reshaped by Dr. Tuan Vo to restore the shape, color, and structure of your tooth and improve your smile. Dental bonding can be used to treat almost any cosmetic dental issue.

Shaping & contouring, also known as “enameloplasty” is typically paired with dental bonding. In this process, Dr. Vo will gently buff away a thin layer of enamel from some of your teeth. This is done to correct imperfections like slight chips, pointed teeth, and uneven teeth. Along with bonding, shaping & contouring can completely restore your smile.

What To Expect

from the process

The dental bonding process takes only 30-60 minutes per tooth, so you can often have more than one tooth restored in a single appointment. Dr. Vo will begin by cleaning the tooth and roughening it with an acid solution. This ensures the resin can get a tight hold on your enamel. Then, he will select and apply a tooth-colored composite resin to your tooth, and shape it with special dental tools. 

Once the overall shape is correct, it will be hardened with a UV light, and then trimmed with a drill to refine the shape and provide you with a natural-looking tooth. If you’re having more than one tooth treated in a single appointment, this process will be repeated.

Shaping & contouring can usually be done alongside bonding, since it usually takes less than 30 minutes. Dr. Vo will gently buff away a very thin layer of enamel from each tooth that requires correction, leaving you with a more even and pleasing smile.

The benefits of bonding, shaping & contouring

First, these procedures are very affordable, particularly compared to other treatments like veneers. If you want to restore your smile but are on a budget, bonding, shaping & contouring may be right for you. 

Both procedures are also non-invasive, and usually do not even require the use of any numbing needles. If you would like to restore your smile but are uncomfortable with the idea of invasive cosmetic treatment, bonding, shaping & contouring are right for you.
You’ll get long-lasting results, too. Dental bonding lasts for between 3-10 years depending on how well you care for your teeth, and any chipped or dislodged bonding material can be easily replaced by Dr. Tuan Vo, so you can maintain a beautiful smile for years and decades to come.

For all of these reasons, dental bonding from Dr. Tuan Vo at AT Dental Care is a great option if you’re interested in cosmetic dentistry in San Jose, Silver Creek, or Evergreen. Contact us online to schedule an appointment with Dr. Vo, and see if this treatment is right for you.
