About Dental Bonds and Contour
For a few cosmetic irregularities, like stained teeth with breaks, dental bonding and contouring at DentalWorks - Leland in Leland, NC can provide a more smooth and gorgeous smile. Dental bonding is one of the more popular cosmetic dental treatments at DentalWorks - Leland by our dentists that incorporates a liquid resin to disguise decay and imperfections. The bonding material is colored to match the real teeth so it is almost entirely invisible. Aesthetic dental bonding can also be used to make the teeth look longer. This cosmetic enhancement closes together small spaces between the teeth, and shapes and smoothes the edges for an even, natural appearance producing a high-quality smile.
What to Expect
Dental contouring and bonding is performed in DentalWorks - Leland's dental practice and is typically pain-free so it does not require numbing or sedation. To make the tooth and get it ready for proper bonding, our dentists will score the top layer of the tooth and put on a conditioning gel. Before it is applied, the resin is prepared to match the patient's natural tooth whiteness and then precisely painted onto the enamel. A special light is aimed at the teeth to harden and set the resin until the resin completely covers the treated area. After this process, our dentists will buff and smooth the surface of the tooth to guarantee the bonded teeth are level. The natural teeth can also be polished with smoothing instruments to take away sharp edges.
Clients at DentalWorks - Leland may find that their finished bonded and contoured teeth feel abnormal at first, but patients gradually get used to how they look and feel. To take care of dental bonding, our patients should make routine dental check-ups with our dentists. Proceeding your bonding treatment, patients should try hard to avoid dark liquids and staining foods, as well as tobacco products and grinding their teeth to avoid wear. With a proactive dental care approach, bonding and contouring can last a long while before another bonding and contouring treatment is needed.
Aesthetic dental bonding may be recommended to fix a fragmented and unsightly tooth. But because this is a procedure that is considered an aesthetic enhancement, dental benefits may or may not cover the fees. If this treatment is in fact needed to fix the teeth, dental coverage may cover some of the cost. Our insurance managers at DentalWorks - Leland will call each patient's claims department to confirm the liability for payment. If the expenses are higher than what the patient can afford, our dentists at DentalWorks - Leland can assist by offering affordable billing options.
