What is dental bonding and contouring?
You can't always avoid accidents. You could take a wrong step, trip, and chip your tooth. Sometimes a tooth can become discolored from an illness or medication. Our team offers dental bonding and contouring to improve these small cosmetic flaws at our office in New York, NY. A quick, effective cosmetic treatment, bonding and contouring applies composite resin (the same material used for tooth-colored fillings) to mask tooth discoloration, reduce gaps in your teeth, make a tooth longer, and even change the shape of a tooth. If you want an effective way to enhance your teeth, schedule a consultation to get more information about dental bonding and contouring at 286 Madison Dental.
Who is a good candidate for bonding and contouring?
Cosmetic bonding and contouring can correct chips, gaps, cracks, discoloration, tooth length, and other minor cosmetic flaws. Bonding and contouring is an affordable cosmetic procedure and can often be completed in a single visit. It does not need prep work like veneers or crowns; however, it isn’t as strong and generally doesn’t last as long. Dental bonding and contouring are good for minor issues, but another restorative or cosmetic procedure may be considered if you need bigger improvements. Our team will listen to your needs and wants during your appointment and then discuss your best treatment options.

What should I expect on the day of my bonding and contouring treatment?
Usually, our dental professionals can complete bonding and contouring in a single visit at our New York City office. You shouldn't need any anesthesia; however, you can review sedation options with our team at your appointment for problems like dental fears, anxieties, or a strong gag reflex. As soon as you're ready, our team will apply the composite resin to the desired areas with the help of one of our team members. The composite resin will harden with the help of a special light, adding more layers as needed. Once the bonding process is set, our team will contour and polish both the resin and your natural enamel for a beautiful finish.
What is recovery like following dental bonding and contouring?
After a dental bonding and contouring procedure, you should not consume staining drinks and food (such as coffee, tea, and tobacco) for at least 48 hours. The composite resin can stain and chip, so don't bite hard objects such as hard candy, pens, and fingernails, and clean your teeth as soon as possible after eating. Bonded teeth should be cared for like natural teeth with regular flossing and brushing. Dental cleanings at 286 Madison Dental will help to remove stains from the composite resin. With good care, bonding and contouring can last up to ten years. At your annual dental examination, our team can help you determine if the dental bonding and contouring procedure needs to be done again to refresh your results.

Does insurance cover bonding and contouring?
