"Dr. Olson was very informative as well as his hygienist Jennifer. I was escorted to the Panoramic Ultrasound machine by Tia, and may I add she was very sweet and patient. I will say the hubby approved this office, lol we will be back."- L. / Google / Apr 24, 2021
"I’ve been going here for years, and the care has not changed once. It’s been great every single time. I don’t have any issues with my teeth, so I’m usually in and out with my cleaning. Even waiting to be called back has never been very long, but it’s gotten even faster over the years. Everyone is very friendly, both on the phone and in person. It is always very clean, and they require masks and temperature checks for Covid. I’ve never had them tell me I need anything but my cleaning, and having my wisdom teeth out. Even with my wisdom teeth, I’ve never felt pressured to schedule, just advised it’s recommended and given a breakdown of the costs. My insurance covers most of the cleanings, and the most I’ve ever paid for a visit is $30. My mom also comes here and loves the care and low price. They do occasionally ask her if she wants Lumineers, but she’s never been pressed about it. Overall great place!"- J.B. / Yelp / Apr 09, 2021

Who Is a Candidate for Dental Bonding?
Candidates for dental bonding and contouring have healthy teeth with cosmetic flaws that can be tweaked with tooth-colored resin. With our dedicated bonding and contouring dental techniques, we can transform your minor imperfections into a dazzling smile on:
- The front, back, and sides of the teeth
- Gaps in the teeth
- Light discoloration
- The length and/or shape of the tooth
If you are a candidate for bonding and contouring, you will have healthy teeth on the inside with minimal work to be done to get the outcome you want.
What Is the Dental Bonding and Contouring Process?
We evaluate the health of your teeth. We can then work together to determine the right treatment path for your teeth. Because the materials and techniques do not require a lot of time or numbing, you can have dental bonding and contouring performed in one office visit. We will not recommend this dental service if you do not qualify for it. This dental service is not for teeth that require a crown because it would not do well without what the full-coverage porcelain or ceramic restoration can offer. We will match the shade of resin to the natural color of your teeth. The tooth will be sterilized before the resin is applied to the surface area of your tooth. With special dental instruments, your dentist will reshape the resin and level the exterior to achieve proper tooth anatomy. The final steps include setting the tooth with a curing light to harden it and then polishing the tooth for a smooth look and feel.
How Can I Care for My Bonded Teeth?
You will see immediate results with bonding and contouring at Made Ya Smile Dental in Kingwood, TX. If you take really great care of your teeth, then your dental resin will show age years down the road when it will need to be replaced.
Is Dental Bonding Covered by Insurance?
Dental bonding and contouring are both cosmetic services that are usually not covered by dental insurance. We can have a member of our billing department reach out to your provider to see what is applicable to your plan. You can pay with a credit card or ask about financing options you can apply to borrow the money through CareCredit®.
