About Dental Bonds and Contour
For certain cosmetic problems, such as cracks, stains, and chips, dental bonding and contouring at DentalWorks - Lakeside in Sterling Heights, MI offers a more beautiful and healthy smile. Fixing the teeth with dental bonding is one of the easiest cosmetic dental procedures at DentalWorks - Lakeside by our dentists that uses a resin solution to cover subtle aesthetic irregularities. The resin substance is a natural appearing match to the real teeth so it appears invisible. Dental bonding is also used to create a tooth appearance that looks longer. This aesthetic procedure fills in small gaps between the teeth, and smoothes the edges for a straight and natural look resulting in high-quality smile.
What to Expect
Dental bonding takes place in DentalWorks - Lakeside's dental office and is generally pain-free thus there is no need for sedation. To prep the tooth and make it applicable for effective bonding, our dentists will scrape the top surface of the tooth and apply a special gel. Prior to application, the resin is created to mimic the patient's current tooth shade and then carefully painted onto the surface. A special ray of light is applied to harden and cure the resin until it fully covers the treatment area. During the final step in this process, our dentists will polish and buff the tooth's surface to make certain the bonded teeth are even. The unbonded teeth may also be contoured and polished with polishing instruments to remove sharp edges.
Individuals at DentalWorks - Lakeside may discover that their newly sealed and polished bonded teeth feel funny at first, but patients eventually get used to the new addition to their smile. To prolong the lift of dental bonding, each patient should attend ongoing dental visits with our dentists. After your bonding and contouring procedure, patients will need to avoid staining foods and drinks, as well as smoking and teeth grinding. With good care, this cosmetic treatment can last for a number of years before an additional treatment is needed.
Dental bonding may be needed to repair a chipped or discolored tooth. Due to the fact that this is a cosmetic treatment, dental insurance might not cover the expense. If dental bonding is suggested to repair the teeth, insurance may apply. Our staff at DentalWorks - Lakeside will contact each patient's insurance company to determine the coverage and overall fees. If insurance does not apply, our dentists at DentalWorks - Lakeside are proud to offer convenient payment options.
