About Dental Bonds and Contour

Small imperfections of the teeth can be fixed with a cosmetic procedure known as dental bonding. The dentists at Cosmetic Dental Associates in Houston, Texas can repair small cracks, chips, and gaps. The treatment is also effective in transforming the look of stains and discolorations. With a simple and quick technique, a resin material is applied to the surface of the tooth and will be matched to existing teeth in terms of color. Once placed, bondings will leave a natural appearance. A complementary procedure, dental contouring, involves removing a small amount of enamel to improve the shape and length of teeth.

What to Expect

This treatment option is fast and painless. The dentist will begin by etching the surface layer of the tooth and applying a conditioning gel which will help ensure the resin will correctly bond to the tooth. The resin itself is matched to the existing tooth color and shaped to match the teeth near it. After that, a hardening light is used to harden the resin, and then the tooth is polished to to its final shape. This procedure is usually performed in the dentist’s office with little or no anesthesia. 

Treatment Aftercare

Patients should expect results to last for 3-10 years after this treatment. Good dental hygiene can prolong the duration, so patients are encouraged to follow a good home oral care routine and visit their dentist for regular exams and cleanings. Since dental bonding is easier to chip or stain than dental veneers, patients should avoid staining foods and drinks, quit smoking, and avoid biting hard objects. Even after the results diminish, the teeth can often be easily re-treated in order to prolong the results.

Anticipated Costs

Prices will vary depending on the condition of the teeth and the number of teeth that are treated, but patients should expect to spend between $50 and $300 per tooth. If the bonding or contouring is being performed to correct a trauma or accident, the patient’s insurance may cover some of the costs. Our front office will check to determine the patient’s coverage before billing.
