About Dental Bonds and Contour
For a few cosmetic imperfections, such as stained teeth with breaks, dental bonding and contouring at Westgrove Dental Care in Carrollton, TX offers a more smooth and gorgeous smile. Fixing the teeth with dental bonding is one of the most effective cosmetic dental procedures at Westgrove Dental Care by our dentists that incorporates a resin solution to hide subtle aesthetic irregularities. The resin substance is a natural appearing match to the real teeth so it is almost entirely invisible. This type of cosmetic dentistry is also used to create a tooth appearance that looks longer. This aesthetic procedure closes together small gaps between the teeth, and polishes the edges for a straight and natural look producing a high-quality smile.
What to Expect
Dental contouring and bonding takes place in Westgrove Dental Care's dental practice and is typically pain-free thus there is no need for numbing or sedation. To make the tooth and make it applicable for proper bonding, our dentists will etch the top layer of the tooth and put on a special gel. Prior to application, the resin is prepared to mimic the patient's current tooth whiteness and then slowly painted onto the surface. A special ray of light is aimed at the teeth to harden and cure the resin until the resin fully covers the treatment area. During the final step in this process, our dentists will buff and smooth the tooth's surface to double check the bonded teeth are level. The unbonded teeth may also be polished with buffing instruments to remove sharp edges.
Clients at Westgrove Dental Care may discover that their finished sealed and polished bonded teeth feel foreign at first, but patients eventually get used to how they look and feel. To take care of dental bonding, each patient should make yearly dental visits with our dentists. Proceeding your bonding and contouring procedure, patients will be asked to avoid dark liquids and staining foods, as well as smoking and grinding their teeth to avoid wear. With good care, bonding and contouring can last about 10 years before another bonding and contouring treatment is needed.
Aesthetic dental bonding may be recommended to repair a fragmented and unsightly tooth. Due to the fact that this is a procedure that is considered an aesthetic enhancement, dental benefits might not cover the fees. If dental bonding is in fact needed to repair the teeth, dental coverage may cover some of the cost. Our insurance managers at Westgrove Dental Care will contact each patient's claims department to determine the liability for payment. If the expenses are higher than what the patient can afford, our dentists at Westgrove Dental Care can assist by offering convenient billing options.
