About Dental Bonds and Contour
For some cosmetic irregularities, like discoloration and chipped teeth, dental bonding and contouring at Family First Dental Care in Plano, TX can provide a more vibrant and appealing smile. Dental bonding is one of the more popular cosmetic dental treatments at Family First Dental Care by our dentists that places a liquid resin to disguise decay and imperfections. The bonding material is colored to match the real teeth so it looks invisible. Aesthetic dental bonding can also be used to make the teeth look longer. This cosmetic enhancement closes in small spaces between the teeth, and shapes and smoothes the edges for an even, natural appearance creating a high-quality smile.

What to Expect
Dental reshaping and bonding is performed in Family First Dental Care's in-house treatment room and is usually pain-free so it does not require general anesthesia. To prepare the tooth and get it ready for long-term bonding, our dentists will score the top enamel of the tooth and paint on a conditioning gel. Before it is applied, the resin is made to match the patient's natural tooth color and then precisely painted onto the enamel. A special light is used to harden and set the resin until the substance completely covers the treated area. After this process, our dentists will smooth the surface of the tooth to guarantee the bonded teeth are uniform. The natural teeth can also be buffed with smoothing instruments to take away sharp edges.
Patients at Family First Dental Care may find that their freshly bonded and contoured teeth feel abnormal at first, but patients gradually get used to the way they feel. To maintain the tight fitting of dental bonding, our patients should schedule routine dental check-ups with our dentists. Following your bonding treatment, patients should try hard to avoid food and drink that can stain the teeth, as well as tobacco products and wear and tear on the teeth. With a proactive dental care approach, aesthetic dental bonding can last a long while before another bonding procedure is needed.
Bonding and contouring may be suggested to fix a broken tooth. But because this is a treatment that is cosmetic by nature, dental coverage may or may not cover the cost. If this treatment is recommended to fix the teeth, coverage may be applied. Our billing staff at Family First Dental Care will call each patient's provider to confirm the out-of-pocket expenses. If benefits cannot be used, our dentists at Family First Dental Care offer affordable financing options.
