About Dental Bonds and Contour
For some cosmetic issues, such as discoloration and chipped teeth, dental bonding and contouring at Eagle Point Dental Care in McKinney, TX offers a more vibrant and appealing smile. Fixing the teeth with dental bonding is one of the fastest cosmetic dental procedures at Eagle Point Dental Care by our dentists that places a resin solution to seal subtle aesthetic irregularities. The resin substance is a natural appearing match to the real teeth so it looks invisible. This cosmetic procedure is also used to create a tooth appearance that looks longer. This aesthetic procedure closes in small gaps between the teeth, and recontours the edges for a straight and natural look creating a high-quality smile.
What to Expect
Dental reshaping and bonding takes place in Eagle Point Dental Care's in-house treatment room and is usually pain-free thus there is no need for general anesthesia. To prepare the tooth and make it applicable for long-term bonding, our dentists will roughen the top enamel of the tooth and paint on a special gel. Prior to application, the resin is made to mimic the patient's current tooth color and then delicately painted onto the surface. A special ray of light is used to harden and cure the resin until the substance fully covers the treatment area. During the final step in this process, our dentists will smooth the tooth's surface to make sure the bonded teeth are uniform. The unbonded teeth may also be buffed with dental instruments to remove sharp edges.
Patients at Eagle Point Dental Care may discover that their freshly sealed and polished bonded teeth feel weird at first, but patients eventually get used to the way they feel. To maintain the tight fitting of dental bonding, each patient should schedule consistent dental visits with our dentists. Following your bonding and contouring procedure, patients need to avoid food and drink that can stain the teeth, as well as smoking and wear and tear on the teeth. With good care, aesthetic dental bonding can last between 3 - 10 years before another bonding procedure is needed.
Bonding and contouring may be suggested to repair a broken tooth. Due to the fact that this is a treatment that is cosmetic by nature, dental coverage might not cover the cost. If dental bonding is recommended to repair the teeth, coverage may be applied. Our billing staff at Eagle Point Dental Care will contact each patient's provider to determine the out-of-pocket expenses. If benefits cannot be used, our dentists at Eagle Point Dental Care offer convenient financing options.
