What Is Dental Bonding and Contouring?

Our teeth show signs of wear and tear over time, just like vehicles. Maybe you trip and chip a tooth. Teeth can also become discolored for any number of reasons, such as an illness or medication. Our team offers bonding and contouring to improve small cosmetic flaws at our office in Allen, TX. A fast, effective cosmetic treatment, bonding and contouring uses a composite resin (also used for tooth-colored fillings) to mask discoloration, reduce gaps, or even change the shape of a tooth. For a great way to enhance your teeth, schedule an appointment to get more information about bonding and contouring at The Dentist of Allen.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding may be an excellent option if you're concerned about minor imperfections impacting the overall look of your smile. Some of the benefits of dental bonding at The Dentist Of Allen include:

  • Repairs minor aesthetic concerns, such as cracks, chips, and discoloration
  • Offers a lower-cost option versus more complex dental treatments, like crowns or veneers
  • Involves very little enamel reduction, protecting the normal tooth structure
  • Quick and comfortable procedure
  • Enhances tooth size, shape, and placement
  • Enhances the strength and stability of weakened or worn-out teeth
  • Produces lasting outcomes
  • Can help with self-esteem issues related to your smile's appearance

Dental bonding and contouring may treat gaps, chips, cracks, discoloration, short teeth, teeth shape, and other minor cosmetic flaws. Dental bonding and contouring is an affordable cosmetic dental treatment and can usually be done in one appointment. It does not require preparations like crowns or veneers, but it isn't as strong and usually doesn't last as many years. Dental bonding and contouring is ideal for minor cosmetic flaws, but if you want more extensive changes, a different cosmetic or restorative procedure may be better. During your appointment, Dr. Kim will listen to your needs and wants and then discuss your options.

What Should I Expect from A Bonding and Contouring Procedure?

Bonding and contouring can generally be done in one appointment at our office in Allen, TX. You should not need anesthesia, but sedation can be an option to cope with fear, anxiety, or a strong gag reflex. When you're comfortable, we will apply the composite resin to the areas of your teeth that need it. The bonding material will be set with a special light before more layers are added. Once the bonding process is done, we will shape and smooth the filling material and your natural enamel for an even appearance.

After your session, avoid staining drinks and foods for at least 48 hours. The bonding material can stain and chip so avoid chewing on hard objects, like ice or hard candy, and clean your teeth immediately after eating. Bonded teeth must be cleaned like regular teeth with regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash. Cleanings at The Dentist of Allen will help polish away stains from the composite resin. With good care, bonding and contouring can last up to a decade. Our team can help you determine if this procedure needs to be redone to maintain your results.

Will my insurance cover dental bonding?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure, so it's usually not paid by insurance. Our team can contact your insurance company to double check if it is covered; however, you will probably need to pay for the cost of the treatment on your own. In your consultation with Dr. Kim, he will discuss an estimate of cost and payment methods we take at The Dentist Of Allen.

How much does dental bonding cost?

The overall price of dental bonding varies from patient to patient depending on a number of factors. During your consult, our staff will listen to your concerns and assess your situation to create a personalized treatment plan. At that point, we’ll be able to provide a more accurate estimate of your total cost.

Is dental bonding painful?

No. Thanks to our modern equipment and experienced staff, the vast majority of our patients do not report feeling any pain or discomfort during their dental bonding treatment.
