Cosmetic and Contouring SmileSay goodbye to little chips, cracks and discolorations in your smile.

When people think about cosmetic dentistry they often think about dental veneers, implants, and even crowns, but did you know that there are fast, easy, and inexpensive options that can help fix more minor dental flaws in just a single dental visit? If you didn’t know about this, it’s time you did. Our York, PA, dentist Dr. Robert Hoffmaster is here to tell you how dental bonding and cosmetic contouring could enhance your smile.

While dental bonding and cosmetic contouring may not be a cosmetic dental treatment with which you are familiar, it could just end up being the fast, easy and inexpensive option you’ve been looking for. Cosmetic contouring is where our York, PA, general dentist shaves off small amounts of enamel to help reshape and alter the size or appearance of a tooth. Since very little enamel is removed it is completely painless and non-invasive and can be great for buffing away pits, chips, worn edges, and other minor issues.

Dental bonding is another non-invasive cosmetic technique that is often combined with cosmetic contouring to improve the look of a tooth. Bonding uses a tooth-colored resin that is applied and shaped over small imperfections in a tooth to hide them and to enhance the size, shape, or color of a tooth. Bonding is a great way to hide small chips and cracks, discolorations, pits and grooves, and even small gaps between teeth. Teeth that might look smaller than the rest may also be able to be shaped by bonding so your smile looks more symmetrical.

People love cosmetic contouring and bonding because it’s fast and painless, plus it can usually be performed in just one visit.
