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®.
