Dental Bonding and Contouring Overview
An accident can happen at any time. You could take a bad fall and chip a tooth. Sometimes a tooth can get discolored from the food you eat, certain medications, or illness, such as a medication or illness that affects tooth enamel and dentin. General and cosmetic dentists Dr. Chris and Dr. Matt provide dental bonding and contouring to fix certain cosmetic flaws at their dental practice in Plano, TX. A fast, effective cosmetic treatment, dental bonding and contouring via composite resin (the same material used for tooth-colored fillings) will cover tooth discoloration, reduce gaps in your teeth, make a tooth longer, or even change the shape of a tooth. If you want a great way to improve your smile, make an appointment to learn more about bonding and contouring treatments at Miller & Miller Dentistry.
Dental Bonding and Contouring Reviews
"Had an old filling come out of a front tooth. Was able to get in the next morning and Dr. Chris made this repair quickly with beautiful results. Everyone there is so helpful and friendly! My family has used this dentist for years and we are always happy with the results. One of the best features of the office is the ability to set appointments as early as 7:00am so you don't miss much work. I frequently recommend others to them."- C.S. / Office Visit / Mar 06, 2019
Best Candidates for Dental Bonding and Contouring
Cosmetic bonding and contouring can fill cracks, gaps, chips, improve length, discoloration, and other minor cosmetic flaws. Bonding and contouring is an affordable cosmetic treatment and can often be completed in a single visit. Candidates for bonding and contouring have very minor, superficial flaws that will not require a substantial restorative treatment. If you require more extensive changes, another cosmetic or restorative procedure should be considered. During your appointment, Dr. Chris or Dr. Matt will listen to your goals and then go over your cosmetic dentistry options.
What To Expect with Dental Bonding and Contouring
Dental bonding and contouring services are generally completed in one visit. Once you are comfortable, your dentist will begin applying the composite resin to the needed teeth with the assistance of one of his team members. The resin will be hardened with a special light before more layers are added. Once the bonding process is complete, we then will contour and polish the material and your natural teeth for a seamless appearance.
Dental Bonding and Contouring Follow-up
After you've had dental bonding and contouring, you should avoid teeth-discoloring food and beverages. The composite resin can chip and stain, so don’t bite down on hard objects such as ice cubes, hard candy, fingernails, or pens. Bonded and contoured teeth should be cleaned like regular teeth with regular flossing and brushing. Bi-annual cleanings at Miller & Miller Dentistry will help to maintain a healthy smile with your new composits. With ideal care, dental bonding can last up to ten years. During your annual dental exam, Dr. Chris or Dr. Matt will help you decide if the cosmetic bonding and contouring procedure needs to be re-done to refresh your appearance.
