If you are unhappy with the size or shape of your teeth, bonding and contouring could be a good option. Dr. Peter Ruggiero offers this minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in the comfortable offices of Cedar Dental, and his work can help you regain confidence in the look of your smile. Often, these procedures can be done in a single visit and without the use of anesthesia.


Bonding involves using a composite resin — color matched to your natural teeth — to change a tooth’s size, shape, or color. It can also be used to close large gaps. It is typically a short procedure, and it is one of the more cost-effective ways of improving your smile. The resin is also used for attaching porcelain veneers, so you can rest easy knowing that it is a strong adhesive, and that it is unlikely to chip or come out.


While bonding adds to your tooth, contouring removes part of your enamel. It can fix chipped teeth, improve damage caused by bruxism, and can reshape teeth you find to be too large. The procedure is minimally invasive and can typically be done in a single visit. If you are unhappy with the look of one or more of your teeth, contouring is an easy solution that could help you find confidence once again.
