About Dental Bonds and Contour
For a few cosmetic concerns, such as stained teeth with breaks, dental bonding and contouring at DentalWorks - Winston Salem in Winston Salem, NC offers a more smooth and gorgeous smile. Fixing the teeth with dental bonding is one of the quickest cosmetic dental procedures at DentalWorks - Winston Salem by our dentists that incorporates a resin solution to mask subtle aesthetic irregularities. The resin substance is a natural appearing match to the real teeth so it is almost entirely invisible. This treatment is also used to create a tooth appearance that looks longer. This aesthetic procedure closes together small gaps between the teeth, and reshapes the edges for a straight and natural look producing a high-quality smile.
What to Expect
Dental contouring and bonding takes place in DentalWorks - Winston Salem's dental practice and is typically pain-free thus there is no need for numbing or sedation. To make the tooth and make it applicable for proper bonding, our dentists will engrave the top layer of the tooth and put on a special gel. Prior to application, the resin is prepared to mimic the patient's current tooth whiteness and then gently painted onto the surface. A special ray of light is aimed at the teeth to harden and cure the resin until the resin fully covers the treatment area. During the final step in this process, our dentists will buff and smooth the tooth's surface to ensure the bonded teeth are level. The unbonded teeth may also be polished with special instruments to remove sharp edges.
Clients at DentalWorks - Winston Salem may discover that their finished sealed and polished bonded teeth feel different at first, but patients eventually get used to how they look and feel. To take care of dental bonding, each patient should make regular dental visits with our dentists. Proceeding your bonding and contouring procedure, patients should avoid dark liquids and staining foods, as well as smoking and grinding their teeth to avoid wear. With good care, bonding and contouring can last up to a decade before another bonding and contouring treatment is needed.
Aesthetic dental bonding may be recommended to repair a fragmented and unsightly tooth. Due to the fact that this is a procedure that is considered an aesthetic enhancement, dental benefits might not cover the fees. If dental bonding is in fact needed to repair the teeth, dental coverage may cover some of the cost. Our insurance managers at DentalWorks - Winston Salem will contact each patient's claims department to determine the liability for payment. If the expenses are higher than what the patient can afford, our dentists at DentalWorks - Winston Salem can assist by offering convenient billing options.
