About Dental Bonds and Contour

For some cosmetic imperfections, like discoloration and chipped teeth, dental bonding and contouring at Creek Crossing Dental Care and Orthodontics in Mesquite, TX can provide a more vibrant and appealing smile. Dental bonding is one of the most effective cosmetic dental treatments at Creek Crossing Dental Care and Orthodontics by our dentists that places a liquid resin to hide decay and imperfections. The bonding material is colored to match the real teeth so it looks invisible. This type of cosmetic dentistry can also be used to make the teeth look longer. This cosmetic enhancement closes in small spaces between the teeth, and polishes the edges for an even, natural appearance creating a high-quality smile.

What to Expect

Dental reshaping and bonding is performed in Creek Crossing Dental Care and Orthodontics's in-house treatment room and is usually pain-free so it does not require general anesthesia. To prepare the tooth and get it ready for long-term bonding, our dentists will etch the top enamel of the tooth and paint on a conditioning gel. Before it is applied, the resin is made to match the patient's natural tooth color and then slowly painted onto the enamel. A special light is used to harden and set the resin until the substance completely covers the treated area. After this process, our dentists will smooth the surface of the tooth to double check the bonded teeth are uniform. The natural teeth can also be buffed with buffing instruments to take away sharp edges.

Treatment Aftercare

Patients at Creek Crossing Dental Care and Orthodontics may find that their freshly bonded and contoured teeth feel foreign at first, but patients gradually get used to the way they feel. To maintain the tight fitting of dental bonding, our patients should schedule yearly dental check-ups with our dentists. Following your bonding treatment, patients will be asked to avoid food and drink that can stain the teeth, as well as tobacco products and wear and tear on the teeth. With a proactive dental care approach, aesthetic dental bonding can last about 10 years before another bonding procedure is needed.

Insurance Coverage

Bonding and contouring may be suggested to fix a broken tooth. But because this is a treatment that is cosmetic by nature, dental coverage may or may not cover the cost. If this treatment is recommended to fix the teeth, coverage may be applied. Our billing staff at Creek Crossing Dental Care and Orthodontics will call each patient's provider to confirm the out-of-pocket expenses. If benefits cannot be used, our dentists at Creek Crossing Dental Care and Orthodontics offer affordable financing options.
