Can A Bonding Procedure Change A Tooth’s Size?

A single tooth that stands out in your smile can hurt your facial symmetry, making you feel less confident in the way you look. Sometimes, problems occur after an injury, or because of gradual wear and tear that affects the shape and size of some teeth. However, your issues may be with a tooth that naturally appears out of place because it is not the right size. What you may not realize is that a conservative cosmetic dental procedure may be all that you need to address this issue. With a tooth bonding procedure performed at our Rochester, MN dentist’s office, we can change the shape and size of a tooth that is an outlier in your smile, making it a proper fit in order to improve your facial symmetry and raise your confidence!

Are You Embarrassed By A Tooth That Doesn’t Fit In With Your Smile?

A minor but conspicuous dental flaws can be enough to rob you of confidence in the way you look. Symmetry is an important quality for your smile. If something differs on one side from the other, it can have an overall negative effect, even if the issue itself is minor. Fortunately, one of the services provided through cosmetic dentistry is treatment to address trouble with tooth shape, size, and color that might be throwing off your smile symmetry.

Undergoing A Tooth Bonding Procedure

The tooth bonding procedure is a conservative treatment option, one that does not require the making or the placement of a permanent restoration on your tooth. Instead, we use a biocompatible resin material to cover the tooth and correct issues with its shape, its size, or – if necessary – its color. When this work is complete, the tooth can appear to be a good match with its neighbors, no longer standing out or drawing unwanted attention!

Other Cosmetic Flaws We Can Address Through Treatment

While bonding treatment can be effective under many circumstances, it is not the only service that we can provide to patients who want a better smile. We also offer treatment with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers can take more time to place, and they can require more changes to your tooth structure. With that said, veneers offer more durability, which means you can have an easier time preserving your smile improvements. You also have the option of changing your appearance with a custom same-day dental crown. Because undersized teeth sometimes hurt a person’s bite function, crowns can be placed on them in order to correct trouble with your bite as well as your appearance.
