About Cosmetic Dental Bonding

At Trusted Dental Care, we want all patients to enjoy a confident, attractive smile. But in some cases, minor chips or other cosmetic flaws leave some individuals feeling less than satisfied over the appearance of their grin. Talented general dentist Dr. Fesaha Gebrehiwot performs cosmetic bonding and contouring to fix small imperfections on teeth that show within the smile zone. A natural-looking and quick cosmetic treatment, cosmetic dental bonding and contouring uses composite resin to mask tooth discoloration, reduce spaces between gapped teeth, lengthen a tooth, and even change the shape of a tooth. If you want a quick, simple treatment to improve the appearance of your smile, make an appointment to learn more about cosmetic bonding and contouring at Trusted Dental Care in Wylie, TX.

Is Bonding Right for You?

Dental bonding and contouring can improve cracks, chips, gaps, tooth length, discoloration, and other minor cosmetic flaws and is safe for patients of all ages. Performed with tooth-colored composite resin, bonding and contouring is a cost-effective cosmetic procedure and can often be completed in a single visit. It also does not require the prep work of veneers or crowns; however, it is not as strong and usually does not last as many years. While cosmetic bonding and contouring is often ideal for minor cosmetic flaws, another cosmetic or restorative procedure may be a better option if you require more extensive improvements. During your appointment, Dr. G. will listen to your needs and concerns and then discuss your best treatment options.

The Dental Bonding Procedure

In most cases, dental bonding and contouring is a quick, easy, single-visit procedure performed at our modern office in Wylie, TX. You should not need anesthesia for this treatment; however, please let our team know if you feel nervous or anxious about receiving dental care. Once you are comfortable, Dr. G. will select a shade of composite resin that matches the color of your enamel and precisely apply it to the areas in need. The composite resin will be sculpted to look like a natural part of your tooth and hardened with a special curing light. When the material is set, Dr. G. will shape and smooth both the composite and your natural teeth for a beautiful, seamless appearance.

After Cosmetic Dental Bonding

To protect the integrity and appearance of your dental bonding, we suggest that you avoid biting down on hard objects like ice cubes, pens, and fingernails, and clean your teeth as soon as possible after eating. Bonding can last for several years and should be cared for like natural teeth, with daily flossing, brushing, and mouthwash. Professional dental cleanings at Trusted Dental Care can help to polish away stains from the composite resin and help keep your smile looking and feeling its best. During your dental exams, Dr. G. will monitor your composite bonding and let you know if touch-ups to maintain your smile are needed over the years.

Insurance Coverage

Dental bonding and contouring is typically an aesthetic treatment and may not be covered by your dental insurance. Nevertheless, we will contact your dental insurance company to learn about your benefits and prepare an estimate for any personal expenses. To make your family's treatment stress-free and affordable, Trusted Dental Care is pleased to offer flexible payment options and can provide information on low-cost financing plans.
