What Is Dental Bonding and Contouring?
If you have a minor cosmetic flaw, you may not feel as confident about the appearance of your teeth and smile. To create a more balanced look in the smile zone, we offer a procedure called dental bonding and contouring to repair issues such as small chips in the teeth, minor gaps in the teeth, or even tooth discoloration. Our skilled dentist at Made Ya Smile uses tooth-colored composite material to match the rest of your teeth while improving the tooth's size, shape, and color. If you are in the Missouri City, TX area and would like to learn more about this type of treatment, schedule an appointment for a custom consultation.

Who Is a Candidate for Dental Bonding?
Our dentist is excited to offer excellent dental care for all patients who could benefit from a dental bonding and contouring procedure. This treatment is ideal for patients as it does not require much preparation time, unlike crowns or veneers. Made Ya Smile uses composite tooth-colored material on the sides, front, back, or edges of a tooth in order to restore the form and function. This can be a cost-effective alternative to extensive treatments such as porcelain veneers but typically does not offer the same amount of durability. During your consultation, our dentist can help you learn if bonding and contouring meet your requirements or if you need a different solution. Bonding and contouring is a simple treatment that can be completed in a single appointment with Made Ya Smile. This procedure may be ideal if you have concerns such as minor:
- Tooth discoloration
- Gapped teeth
- Uneven edges in the teeth
- Chipped or fractured teeth
- Misshapen or narrow teeth
What Is the Dental Bonding and Contouring Process?
As a cosmetic procedure, dental bonding and contouring can correct different dental concerns for people of every age. While dental anesthetic typically is not required, our dentist may offer sedation dentistry options if you are nervous about the procedure or have a strong gag reflex. Made Ya Smile will begin by cleaning and treating the teeth with a special liquid material. Then we will add a composite resin that matches the color of your tooth enamel for a seamless look. This will be sculpted into the right shape, then hardened with a curing light. Finally, our dentist will polish the final bonding for a natural look and excellent result.
How Can I Care for My Bonded Teeth?
Dental bonding and contouring by Made Ya Smile is an effective, non-invasive treatment that doesn't have a long recovery phase. Patients can return to their day as normal with more confidence in the smile.

Avoid chewing or biting down on pens, fingernails, or other hard objects to avoid breaking or damaging your restorations. Routine examinations and cleaning appointments will allow our dentist to stay up-to-date on your progress and let you know if the bonding ever needs to be repaired. When cared for properly, dental bonding and contouring and last for up to ten years.
