What to Expect
Dental contouring and bonding is performed in DentalWorks - Garfield'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 engrave 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 gently 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 ensure the bonded teeth are level. The natural teeth can also be polished with special instruments to take away sharp edges.
Clients at DentalWorks - Garfield may find that their finished bonded and contoured teeth feel different at first, but patients gradually get used to how they look and feel. To take care of dental bonding, our patients should make regular dental check-ups with our dentists. Proceeding your bonding treatment, patients should 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 up to a decade 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 - Garfield 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 - Garfield can assist by offering affordable billing options.
