About Dental Bonds and Contour
For a few cosmetic imperfections, like stained teeth with breaks, dental bonding and contouring at DentalWorks - Wilmington in Wilmington, NC can provide a more smooth and gorgeous smile. Dental bonding is one of the most effective cosmetic dental treatments at DentalWorks - Wilmington by our dentists that incorporates a liquid resin to hide decay and imperfections. The bonding material is colored to match the real teeth so it is almost entirely invisible. This type of cosmetic dentistry can also be used to make the teeth look longer. This cosmetic enhancement closes together small spaces between the teeth, and polishes the edges for an even, natural appearance producing a high-quality smile.
"A trip to the dentist can be a scary thing, causing anxiety coupled with the fear of pain. I've been to Dr. Smith, with Dental Works several times now, and I felt I should comment to my experience. I had two fillings this last time, and he could sense my nervousness. He was able to numb the area well, and then completed the work as swiftly as I could of ever imagined anyone doing so. Literally, within minutes, he had finished, and was ready to begin the filing. I can't thank him enough for completing the work so fast, and within hours, I could tell he had alleviated the pain I was having, and they look great. I would reccomend him to anyone who dreads going to the dentist as much as I do! LNE"- L.E. / Yelp / Dec 28, 2017

"I was really nervous to find a dentist being in a new area. I called around and read reviews. When I spoke to Wendy my mind was made up. So went in today and was greeted warmly. The staff is all amazingly nice and caring. Susan took me back and never left my side for long which really helped me calm down. The doctor was so concerned and took time to help me decide on process to do. Going to have my family come here as well. Never have I been treated with such care and not rushed. If you are like me and a mess around dentists please do not wait. This is the best choice around. I will not neglect my teeth any more."- A.P. / Yelp / Nov 16, 2017

What to Expect
Dental contouring and bonding is performed in DentalWorks - Wilmington'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 etch 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 slowly 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 double check the bonded teeth are level. The natural teeth can also be polished with buffing instruments to take away sharp edges.
Clients at DentalWorks - Wilmington may find that their finished bonded and contoured teeth feel foreign at first, but patients gradually get used to how they look and feel. To take care of dental bonding, our patients should make yearly dental check-ups with our dentists. Proceeding your bonding treatment, patients will be asked to 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 about 10 years 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 DentalWorks - Wilmington 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 DentalWorks - Wilmington can assist by offering affordable billing options.
