About Dental Bonds and Contour
For certain cosmetic concerns, like cracks, stains, and chips, dental bonding and contouring at Meadows Dental Care in Austin, TX can provide a more beautiful and healthy smile. Dental bonding is one of the quickest cosmetic dental treatments at Meadows Dental Care by our dentists that uses a liquid resin to mask decay and imperfections. The bonding material is colored to match the real teeth so it appears invisible. This treatment can also be used to make the teeth look longer. This cosmetic enhancement fills in small spaces between the teeth, and reshapes the edges for an even, natural appearance resulting in high-quality smile.
What to Expect
Dental bonding is performed in Meadows Dental Care's dental office and is generally pain-free so it does not require sedation. To prep the tooth and get it ready for effective bonding, our dentists will engrave the top surface of the tooth and apply a conditioning gel. Before it is applied, the resin is created to match the patient's natural tooth shade and then gently painted onto the enamel. A special light is applied to harden and set the resin until it completely covers the treated area. After this process, our dentists will polish and buff the surface of the tooth to ensure the bonded teeth are even. The natural teeth can also be contoured and polished with special instruments to take away sharp edges.
Individuals at Meadows Dental Care may find that their newly bonded and contoured teeth feel different at first, but patients gradually get used to the new addition to their smile. To prolong the lift of dental bonding, our patients should attend regular dental check-ups with our dentists. After your bonding treatment, patients should avoid staining foods and drinks, as well as tobacco products and teeth grinding. With a proactive dental care approach, this cosmetic treatment can last up to a decade before an additional treatment is needed.
Dental bonding may be needed to fix a chipped or discolored tooth. But because this is a cosmetic treatment, dental insurance may or may not cover the expense. If this treatment is suggested to fix the teeth, insurance may apply. Our staff at Meadows Dental Care will call each patient's insurance company to confirm the coverage and overall fees. If insurance does not apply, our dentists at Meadows Dental Care are proud to offer affordable payment options.
