No matter how hard you try to avoid them, accidents happen. You may take a bad step, trip, and chip a tooth. It's also possible that a tooth could become discolored for several reasons, such as from an illness or medication. Our team performs bonding and contouring to correct minor cosmetic flaws at our office in Simsbury, CT. A quick, effective treatment, bonding and contouring applies composite resin (the same material used for tooth-colored fillings) to mask discoloration, reduce gaps in your teeth, lengthen a tooth, or even change the shape of a tooth. If you want an effective treatment to improve your teeth, schedule an appointment to get more information about bonding and contouring treatments at Hope Family Dentistry.

Cosmetic bonding and contouring may help with chips, cracks, gaps, discoloration, short teeth, teeth shape, and other flaws. Bonding and contouring is an affordable cosmetic treatment and can normally be done in a single appointment. It doesn’t require preparations like veneers and crowns, but it isn’t as strong and typically doesn’t last as long. Bonding and contouring is ideal for minor flaws, so another cosmetic or restorative treatment may be considered if you require bigger changes. Our dental team will listen to your goals at your consult and discuss your best treatment options.

Dr. Hope's practice is one I would highly recommend. Dr hope has a very friendly and kind demeanor and chair side manner that is second to none. His staff as a whole are wonderfully kind, informative and skilled. From their dental assistant to their receptionist you will encounter warm and genuine professionals. There is much to be said about getting a cavity filled and to be so at ease you could fall asleep in the dental chair!

Dental bonding and contouring is typically completed in a single visit at our office in Simsbury, CT. You should not need any anesthesia, but sedation options may be discussed with our dental team for concerns, like anxiety or a strong gag reflex, at your appointment. Once you are ready, our dental team will apply the composite resin to the needed areas of your teeth, aided by one of the team members. The composite resin will be hardened with a special light before more layers are added. Once the layers of composite resin are set, our dental team will contour and polish the filling material as well as your natural enamel for a beautiful finish.

After you've had dental bonding and contouring, it's important to avoid any potentially staining drinks and food (such as coffee, tea, and tobacco) for 48 hours. The composite resin can stain and chip, so don't bite down on hard objects like ice cubes, hard candy, pens, pencils, or your fingernails, and clean your teeth immediately after eating. Teeth that have been bonded and contoured need to be cleaned like natural teeth with daily flossing, brushing, and mouthwash. Bi-annual cleanings at Hope Family Dentistry can help to remove stains from the bonding material. With good care, dental bonding may last as long as ten years. During your annual dental exam, our dental team will help you determine if the bonding and contouring procedure needs to be redone to refresh your results.

About Us

Dental bonding and contouring is an aesthetic procedure, so it's typically not paid for by dental insurance. Our team can contact your dental insurance company to confirm if it is covered, but you will probably pay out-of-pocket for this procedure. At your consult, we can discuss cost estimates and what payment methods we accept at Hope Family Dentistry.

Dental bonding and contouring is a great procedure if you want to enhance minor flaws in your teeth without the expense and time needed for other cosmetic options.
