Dental Bonding and Contouring in Peoria, AZ

Accidents happen. You could take a bad fall and chip your tooth. It's also possible that a tooth can become discolored from an illness or medication. Dr. Donald Hildebrandt offers dental bonding and contouring to fix small cosmetic flaws at his Peoria, AZ practice. A fast, effective treatment, bonding and contouring applies composite resin (also used for tooth-colored fillings) to hide tooth discoloration, reduce spaces between gapped teeth, make a tooth longer, and even improve a tooth's shape. If you want a great treatment to enhance your smile, schedule an appointment to learn more about bonding and contouring at Reflections Dental.

Dental bonding and contouring usually can be completed in a single visit at our office in Peoria, AZ. You shouldn't need anesthesia; however, sedation methods may be discussed with Dr. Hildebrandt during your consultation for concerns, like anxiety or a strong gag reflex. Once you are comfortable, Dr. Hildebrandt will apply the bonding material to the desired areas aided by one of his dental assistants. The composite resin will be hardened with more layers added, as needed. Once the bonding process is complete, Dr. Hildebrandt will shape and smooth both the resin and your natural enamel for an even result.

After dental bonding and contouring, you should avoid staining drinks and food (like tobacco, coffee, and tea) for 48 hours. The bonding material can stain and chip, so don’t bite down on hard objects such as hard candy, pens, and fingernails, and brush your teeth right after eating. Teeth that have been bonded and contoured need to be cared for like regular teeth with regular flossing and brushing. Bi-annual cleanings at Reflections Dental can help to remove stains from the composite resin. With ideal care, dental bonding can last up to ten years. During your annual dental exam, Dr. Hildebrandt can help you determine if your cosmetic bonding and contouring procedure needs to be done again to refresh your results.

At Reflections Dental, dental bonding and contouring can present plenty of advantages for Peoria, AZ individuals aiming to boost the appearance and functionality of their teeth. These advantages include:

Am I A Candidate for Dental Bonding and Contouring?

Dental bonding and contouring can hide cracks, chips, gaps, discoloration, tooth length, and other flaws. Bonding and contouring is a more affordable cosmetic procedure and can normally be performed in a single appointment. It does not require the prep work of veneers or crowns, but it isn't as strong and usually does not last as long. Bonding and contouring are good for minor cosmetic flaws, so if you require more extensive improvements, another restorative or cosmetic procedure may be a better option. Dr. Hildebrandt will listen to your needs and concerns at your appointment and discuss your best treatment options.
