About Dental Bonding and Contouring

No matter how you try to protect your teeth, accidents can happen. A tooth can become chipped after a bad fall or discolored as a result of illness or a side effect from medication. To correct minor cosmetic flaws for patients in Bay City, MI, Dr. Robert M. Taylor III offers dental bonding and contouring. An effective and quick treatment, bonding and contouring uses composite resin (the same material used for tooth-colored fillings) to mask discoloration, reduce gaps in your teeth, lengthen a tooth, or even change a tooth's shape. If you want a great way to improve the appearance of your smile, make an appointment to learn more about bonding and contouring at Robert M. Taylor III, DDS
