About Dental Bonds and Contour
For certain cosmetic problems, like cracks, stains, and chips, dental bonding and contouring at West Valley Family Dental in Glendale, AZ can provide a more beautiful and healthy smile. Dental bonding is one of the easiest cosmetic dental treatments at West Valley Family Dental by our dentists that uses a liquid resin to cover decay and imperfections. The bonding material is colored to match the real teeth so it appears invisible. Dental bonding can also be used to make the teeth look longer. This cosmetic enhancement fills in small spaces between the teeth, and smoothes the edges for an even, natural appearance resulting in high-quality smile.
"I've been going to West Valley Family Dentist since 2016. The staff is always very helpful with explaining procedures and billing and very friendly. I recently had to go back for a deep cleaning and a filling. The hygienist was very good at explaining what she was doing step by step which helped with my anxiety and was patient and gentle with me. I then saw Dr. Rael and her assistant Marni for my filling and they were on top of everything from making sure I was comfortable during the procedure explaining what to expect to calling the oral surgeon to coordinate what needed to be done further which was a relief to know I was in good hands and felt they actually cared about my concerns! Thank you West Valley Family Dental for making my dentist trip smooth!"- K.B. / Yelp / Jun 06, 2019

What to Expect
Dental bonding is performed in West Valley Family Dental's dental office and is generally pain-free so it does not require sedation. To prep the tooth and get it ready for effective bonding, our dentists will scrape the top surface of the tooth and apply a conditioning gel. Before it is applied, the resin is created to match the patient's natural tooth shade and then carefully painted onto the enamel. A special light is applied to harden and set the resin until it completely covers the treated area. After this process, our dentists will polish and buff the surface of the tooth to make certain the bonded teeth are even. The natural teeth can also be contoured and polished with polishing instruments to take away sharp edges.
Individuals at West Valley Family Dental may find that their newly bonded and contoured teeth feel funny at first, but patients gradually get used to the new addition to their smile. To prolong the lift of dental bonding, our patients should attend ongoing dental check-ups with our dentists. After your bonding treatment, patients will need to avoid staining foods and drinks, as well as tobacco products and teeth grinding. With a proactive dental care approach, this cosmetic treatment can last for a number of years before an additional treatment is needed.
Dental bonding may be needed to fix a chipped or discolored tooth. But because this is a cosmetic treatment, dental insurance may or may not cover the expense. If this treatment is suggested to fix the teeth, insurance may apply. Our staff at West Valley Family Dental will call each patient's insurance company to confirm the coverage and overall fees. If insurance does not apply, our dentists at West Valley Family Dental are proud to offer affordable payment options.
