The Benefits of Dental Bonding and Contouring

Minor cosmetic concerns, such as uneven or chipped teeth, are common and can be caused by teeth grinding, accidents, and other factors. Though these aesthetic flaws may not impact your oral function, they can significantly affect how you feel about your smile. The skilled general dentists at ACE Dental of Belton are pleased to offer dental bonding and contouring, which is a conservative, cost-effective cosmetic treatment performed to enhance the size, shape, and color of teeth. Dental bonding and contouring uses tooth-colored composite material to repair chipped teeth, fill small gaps, mask discoloration, and other imperfections to create a contoured, even smile. If you have aesthetic concerns about your smile, reach out to our Belton, TX team and learn whether composite bonding can achieve your cosmetic goals.

Are You a Candidate for Composite Bonding?

Dental bonding and contouring with composite resin is an affordable solution that addresses minor cosmetic issues and does not involve the preparation of porcelain veneers or dental crowns. However, composite bonding is not as durable and may not last as long as porcelain restorations. When you visit ACE Dental of Belton, we'll discuss your goals and help you decide whether cosmetic bonding is right for you. You may be an ideal candidate for composite bonding if your smile is affected by:

  • Oddly shaped teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Uneven or short teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Small gaps between teeth

What Is the Treatment Process?

In many cases, we can complete a dental bonding and contouring procedure in a single dental visit. While patients often don't need a local anesthetic for teeth bonding, sedation services are available if you feel nervous during dental procedures. We'll begin the procedure by choosing the shade of composite resin material that best matches your enamel. Then, we'll expertly apply the material to your teeth and shape it to improve the size, width, and shape of each tooth. An LED light will cure (harden) the composite to your tooth. After we've placed the dental bonding, we'll shape and contour your teeth so they look and feel like a natural part of your smile.

Caring for Composite Dental Bonding

Following the procedure, you'll be free to go about your normal routine. Patients should care for composite-bonded teeth the same way they would normal teeth — with good oral hygiene habits. Given that composite bonding material can become stained or chipped, you should brush right after eating and avoid chewing on pens, ice, your fingernails, and other hard objects. Visiting ACE Dental of Belton for routine dental cleanings can minimize stain buildup on your composite bonding and enamel while enhancing the brightness of your smile. Bonding and contouring results can last up to ten years with proper care and attention.

Will Insurance Cover Bonding Services?

Composite dental bonding and contouring is a cosmetic dentistry service and, as such, may not be a covered insurance benefit. Even so, we'll carefully review your plan to help you get the most out of your coverage before calculating out-of-pocket expenses. To help patients achieve confident, beautiful smiles, ACE Dental of Belton accepts several affordable payment options and can help you choose a solution that fits your budget.
