What to Expect
Dental reshaping and bonding is performed in DentalWorks - Turkey Creek's in-house treatment room and is usually pain-free so it does not require general anesthesia. To prepare the tooth and get it ready for long-term bonding, our dentists will score the top enamel of the tooth and paint on a conditioning gel. Before it is applied, the resin is made to match the patient's natural tooth color and then precisely painted onto the enamel. A special light is used to harden and set the resin until the substance completely covers the treated area. After this process, our dentists will smooth the surface of the tooth to guarantee the bonded teeth are uniform. The natural teeth can also be buffed with smoothing instruments to take away sharp edges.
Patients at DentalWorks - Turkey Creek may find that their freshly bonded and contoured teeth feel abnormal at first, but patients gradually get used to the way they feel. To maintain the tight fitting of dental bonding, our patients should schedule routine dental check-ups with our dentists. Following your bonding treatment, patients should try hard to avoid food and drink that can stain the teeth, as well as tobacco products and wear and tear on the teeth. With a proactive dental care approach, aesthetic dental bonding can last a long while before another bonding procedure is needed.
Bonding and contouring may be suggested to fix a broken tooth. But because this is a treatment that is cosmetic by nature, dental coverage may or may not cover the cost. If this treatment is recommended to fix the teeth, coverage may be applied. Our billing staff at DentalWorks - Turkey Creek will call each patient's provider to confirm the out-of-pocket expenses.
