About Bonding and Contouring
Quickly and effectively improve the appearance of your smile with the cosmetic procedure of bonding and contouring at MINT dentistry in Garland, TX. Bonding and contouring is an aesthetic procedure performed to fix minor flaws in your smile with composite resin. Bonding and contouring calls for both artistry and precision, traits that our experienced MINT dentists are know for having. MINT dentistry performs cosmetic bonding and contouring to hide discoloration, seal cracks and gaps in your enamel, add length to short teeth, or to improve the general shape of your teeth. If your teeth have small but noticeable flaws that may be quickly corrected with dental bonding and contouring, contact us for a consultation with our team of board-certified dentists at MINT dentistry in Garland, TX. Through dental bonding and contouring, we can create a beautiful smile that looks flawless.
Bonding and contouring is used to correct chips, cracks, discoloration, small gaps, the shape of your teeth, and more. Dental bonding and contouring is usually more affordable than other cosmetic treatments (for example, custom veneers) and is normally be finished in a single, quick appointment. The treatment also does not need extensive prep work, especially compared to porcelain veneers or dental crowns, because your results will not last as long. Dental bonding and contouring is best suited for small flaws, so we will suggest other cosmetic and restorative options if you need more extensive improvements or repairs. At your initial consultation, your dentist will listen to your cosmetic goals and concerns before discussing your ideal treatments.
What to Expect
Bonding and contouring is completed generally in just one appointment at our practice in Garland, TX. You don't need anesthesia; however, sedation methods can be considered with your dentist during your initial consultation for anxiety, fears about dental procedures, or a sensitive gag reflex. When you're relaxing in a luxurious treatment chair wearing our MINT sunglasses, your dentist will apply the bonding material to the selected areas. The composite resin will be set before new layers are applied. After the bonding treatment is finished, your experienced MINT dental professional will artistically polish and contour any rough edges on the composite resin and your natural teeth for a even finish.
Following cosmetic bonding and contouring, we advise you not consume staining drinks and food (for example, tea, coffee, and products with tobacco) for at least two days. After this, you should brush immediately when you do consume staining drinks and food. The bonding material can stain and chip, so do not chew on hard objects like ice, hard candy, pens, and your fingernails. The bonded composite resin on your teeth can be taken care of like your natural teeth with daily flossing and brushing. Dental cleanings by our team will help polish away discoloration from the bonding and your natural enamel. With optimal care, cosmetic bonding may last as long as ten years. At your annual examination, your MINT dentistry team will help you determine if your bonding needs to be done again to refresh and rejuvenate your appearance.

Bonding and contouring is considered an elective treatment, so it's rarely covered if you have insurance.
