Cosmetic Dental bonding
This direct restoration involves the application of a filing material to the affected tooth or teeth. In many cases of minor cosmetic imperfections, such as gaps, cracks, chips or slightly misshapen teeth, dental bonding can meet a patient’s needs. It is shaped as needed for a natural appearance and excess resin is removed at which point the bonding material is cured (hardened with a special dental light). Once the restoration has hardened it is polished for a natural appearance. The down-side of dental bonding, compared with a porcelain veneer or crown, is that the bonding material attracts staining and is not as resistant to chipping.
Gum lifting and re-contouring
A gummy smile, where gums intrude onto the front surfaces of the teeth, can make teeth look unhealthy and smaller than they actually are. This can be corrected through laser gum treatment. Unwanted gum tissue is quickly and safely removed without affecting the teeth, creating a more balanced smile.
