About Dental Bonds and Contour
For a few cosmetic concerns, like stained teeth with breaks, dental bonding and contouring at Waterside Dental Care in Richmond, TX can provide a more smooth and gorgeous smile. Dental bonding is one of the quickest cosmetic dental treatments at Waterside Dental Care by our dentists that incorporates a liquid resin to mask decay and imperfections. The bonding material is colored to match the real teeth so it is almost entirely invisible. This treatment can also be used to make the teeth look longer. This cosmetic enhancement closes together small spaces between the teeth, and reshapes the edges for an even, natural appearance producing a high-quality smile.

"I have been a new patient for about one month and have had three appts in that time. After my initial exam and X-ray I went back for my cleaning and one cavity. About two weeks later I had a Torus Mandibular erupt through the gum, rough boney protrusion, during the weekend. I called first thing Monday morning and the dentist was able to see me later that day. The problem was taken care at that time. The reception staff has been very nice and polite. The Dentist and her dental assistants are also very friendly and professional. I have no complaints."- M.S. / Yelp / Sep 30, 2019
What to Expect
Dental contouring and bonding is performed in Waterside Dental Care'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 engrave 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 gently 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 ensure the bonded teeth are level. The natural teeth can also be polished with special instruments to take away sharp edges.
Clients at Waterside Dental Care may find that their finished bonded and contoured teeth feel different at first, but patients gradually get used to how they look and feel. To take care of dental bonding, our patients should make regular dental check-ups with our dentists. Proceeding your bonding treatment, patients should 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 up to a decade 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 Waterside Dental Care 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 Waterside Dental Care can assist by offering affordable billing options.
