About Dental Bonds and Contour
For a few cosmetic problems, like stained teeth with breaks, dental bonding and contouring at DentalWorks - Beaver Valley in Monaca, PA can provide a more smooth and gorgeous smile. Dental bonding is one of the easiest cosmetic dental treatments at DentalWorks - Beaver Valley by our dentists that incorporates a liquid resin to cover decay and imperfections. The bonding material is colored to match the real teeth so it is almost entirely invisible. Dental bonding can also be used to make the teeth look longer. This cosmetic enhancement closes together small spaces between the teeth, and smoothes the edges for an even, natural appearance producing a high-quality smile.
What to Expect
Dental contouring and bonding is performed in DentalWorks - Beaver Valley's dental practice and is typically pain-free so it does not require numbing or sedation. To make the tooth and get it ready for proper bonding, our dentists will scrape the top layer of the tooth and put on a conditioning gel. Before it is applied, the resin is prepared to match the patient's natural tooth whiteness and then carefully painted onto the enamel. A special light is aimed at the teeth to harden and set the resin until the resin completely covers the treated area. After this process, our dentists will buff and smooth the surface of the tooth to make certain the bonded teeth are level. The natural teeth can also be polished with polishing instruments to take away sharp edges.
Clients at DentalWorks - Beaver Valley may find that their finished bonded and contoured teeth feel funny at first, but patients gradually get used to how they look and feel. To take care of dental bonding, our patients should make ongoing dental check-ups with our dentists. Proceeding your bonding treatment, patients will need to avoid dark liquids and staining foods, as well as tobacco products and grinding their teeth to avoid wear. With a proactive dental care approach, bonding and contouring can last for a number of years before another bonding and contouring treatment is needed.
Aesthetic dental bonding may be recommended to fix a fragmented and unsightly tooth. But because this is a procedure that is considered an aesthetic enhancement, dental benefits may or may not cover the fees. If this treatment is in fact needed to fix the teeth, dental coverage may cover some of the cost. Our insurance managers at DentalWorks - Beaver Valley will call each patient's claims department to confirm the liability for payment. If the expenses are higher than what the patient can afford, our dentists at DentalWorks - Beaver Valley can assist by offering affordable billing options.
