About Dental Bonds and Contour
For some cosmetic imperfections, such as discoloration and chipped teeth, dental bonding and contouring at DentalWorks - Polaris in Columbus, OH offers a more vibrant and appealing smile. Fixing the teeth with dental bonding is one of the most effective cosmetic dental procedures at DentalWorks - Polaris by our dentists that places a resin solution to hide subtle aesthetic irregularities. The resin substance is a natural appearing match to the real teeth so it looks invisible. This type of cosmetic dentistry is also used to create a tooth appearance that looks longer. This aesthetic procedure closes in small gaps between the teeth, and polishes the edges for a straight and natural look creating a high-quality smile.
What to Expect
Dental reshaping and bonding takes place in DentalWorks - Polaris's in-house treatment room and is usually pain-free thus there is no need for general anesthesia. To prepare the tooth and make it applicable for long-term bonding, our dentists will etch the top enamel of the tooth and paint on a special gel. Prior to application, the resin is made to mimic the patient's current tooth color and then slowly painted onto the surface. A special ray of light is used to harden and cure the resin until the substance fully covers the treatment area. During the final step in this process, our dentists will smooth the tooth's surface to double check the bonded teeth are uniform. The unbonded teeth may also be buffed with buffing instruments to remove sharp edges.
Patients at DentalWorks - Polaris may discover that their freshly sealed and polished bonded teeth feel foreign at first, but patients eventually get used to the way they feel. To maintain the tight fitting of dental bonding, each patient should schedule yearly dental visits with our dentists. Following your bonding and contouring procedure, patients will be asked to avoid food and drink that can stain the teeth, as well as smoking and wear and tear on the teeth. With good care, aesthetic dental bonding can last about 10 years before another bonding procedure is needed.
Bonding and contouring may be suggested to repair a broken tooth. Due to the fact that this is a treatment that is cosmetic by nature, dental coverage might not cover the cost. If dental bonding is recommended to repair the teeth, coverage may be applied. Our billing staff at DentalWorks - Polaris will contact each patient's provider to determine the out-of-pocket expenses. If benefits cannot be used, our dentists at DentalWorks - Polaris offer convenient financing options.
