What to Expect
Dental reshaping and bonding takes place in The Rim Dental Care and Orthodontics'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 roughen 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 delicately 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 make sure the bonded teeth are uniform. The unbonded teeth may also be buffed with dental instruments to remove sharp edges.
Patients at The Rim Dental Care and Orthodontics may discover that their freshly sealed and polished bonded teeth feel weird at first, but patients eventually get used to the way they feel. To maintain the tight fitting of dental bonding, each patient should schedule consistent dental visits with our dentists. Following your bonding and contouring procedure, patients need 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 between 3 - 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 The Rim Dental Care and Orthodontics will contact each patient's provider to determine the out-of-pocket expenses. If benefits cannot be used, our dentists at The Rim Dental Care and Orthodontics offer convenient financing options.
