Is a jagged tooth sticking out in your smile? Many people have issues with teeth that are naturally misshapen, and others will be bothered by the appearance of a tooth that looks jagged after an injury. One tooth that stands out from its neighbors can attract unwanted attention. It can also stop you from showing off a symmetrical smile, leaving you self-conscious about your appearance. To fix this issue, our Corona, CA dentist’s office can recommend tooth bonding and contouring treatment. This cosmetic dental procedure takes a conservative approach to changing a tooth’s shape and size. With careful modifications, your tooth can have its size and shape corrected so that it no longer appears jagged or uneven. Because this work does not make the placement of a custom restoration necessary, it can fit into a single procedure!

One Jagged Tooth Can Hurt Your Smile

One tooth can create significant problems for you if it stands out when you smile and speak. If you have a tooth with a jagged or uneven shape, it can make you uncomfortable with your appearance because it can draw excess attention for its differences from its neighbors. Because smile symmetry is an important factor when gauging a person’s smile, knowing you have one tooth that stands out can hurt your overall confidence.

Bonding Treatments Deliver Improvements With Conservative Changes To Your Tooth Structure

Through tooth bonding and contouring services, your dentist can carefully correct issues with the way teeth look while making minimal changes to its structure. After treatment to contour the tooth, its jagged appearance can be corrected. The bonding treatment process involves the application of composite resin to the surface of the tooth to hide blemishes, problems with size and shape, and even issues with spacing between neighboring teeth.

What Else Can You Do To Restore A Jagged Tooth?

We also have the option of restoring a jagged tooth’s appearance through the placement of a porcelain veneer to improve how it looks. With a custom veneer made and placed, we can ensure that the tooth fits in with your overall smile. We can also recommend treatment with a dental crown. This involves more change to your tooth structure, but it also leads to more improvements for your bite function.
