About Dental Bonding And Contouring

No matter how hard you try to avoid them, accidents happen. You could take a bad step, trip, and chip your tooth. It's also possible that a tooth can become discolored from an illness or medication. Our dental professionals offer dental bonding and contouring to fix these small cosmetic flaws at our office in Copperas Cove, TX. A fast, effective treatment, bonding and contouring uses composite resin (also used for tooth-colored fillings) to hide tooth discoloration, reduce spaces between gapped teeth, make a tooth longer, and even change a tooth's shape. If you want a great treatment to enhance your smile, schedule a consultation to learn more about bonding and contouring treatments at ACE Dental of Cove.

Best Candidates For Dental Bonding And Contouring

Dental bonding and contouring may help with gaps, chips, cracks, discoloration, tooth length, and other flaws. Bonding and contouring is an affordable cosmetic procedure and can normally be done in one visit. It does not require the prep work of crowns or veneers; however, it isn’t as strong and generally doesn’t last as many years. Dental bonding and contouring is ideal for minor flaws, but if you need bigger changes, a different cosmetic or restorative treatment may be a better option. At your consult, our dentists will listen to your needs and wants and then go over your best treatment options.

What To Expect With Dental Bonding And Contouring

Bonding and contouring will be generally done in one appointment at our office in Copperas Cove, TX. Anesthesia is not typically required, but nitrous oxide sedation can be discussed with one of our experienced dentists at your appointment for concerns, like anxiety or a strong gag reflex. Once you are comfortable, the dentist will apply the bonding material to the desired areas of your teeth with the help of one of their dental assistants. The resin will be set with a special light before more layers are added. Once the bonding process is set, the composite resin will be contoured and polished to blend with your natural teeth.

Recovery After Dental Bonding And Contouring 

After you've had dental bonding and contouring, it's important to remember that the composite resin can stain and chip so don’t bite hard objects, like ice, hard candy, pens, pencils, or your fingernails. Be sure to brush your teeth right after eating. Bonded teeth need to be cleaned just like natural teeth with regular brushing, flossing, and mouthwash. Dental cleanings at ACE Dental of Cove will help to polish away stains from the composite resin. With good care, dental bonding may last up to ten years. During your biannual dental exams, one of our dentists can help you decide if your cosmetic bonding and contouring procedure should be redone to maintain your appearance.

Will My Insurance Cover Dental Bonding And Contouring?

Dental bonding and contouring is an aesthetic procedure so it is generally not covered by insurance. Our team can contact your insurance company to confirm if it is covered, but you will probably pay out-of-pocket for this procedure. In your consultation with one of our knowledgeable dentists, they can discuss your estimated costs and payment methods we accept at ACE Dental of Cove.
