About Dental Bonds and Contour
For certain cosmetic imperfections, such as cracks, stains, and chips, dental bonding and contouring at DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills in Pleasant Hills, PA offers a more beautiful and healthy smile. Fixing the teeth with dental bonding is one of the most effective cosmetic dental procedures at DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills by our dentists that uses a resin solution to hide subtle aesthetic irregularities. The resin substance is a natural appearing match to the real teeth so it appears invisible. This type of cosmetic dentistry is also used to create a tooth appearance that looks longer. This aesthetic procedure fills in small gaps between the teeth, and polishes the edges for a straight and natural look resulting in high-quality smile.
"Yesterday was my first time at the location. I had an abscess tooth and was in immediate need of relief. I just walked in and they were able to see me within the hour. Everyone was professional and kind. Since, Dentalworks was not able to remove the tooth, Dr. Gomez gave me a referral for an oral surgeon. The dental team also outlined a variety of procedures that I will need in the future (my teeth are horrible and it has been a while since I saw a dentist.) They all explained why the procedures would be needed versus just telling me about them. I appreciated it quite a lot. The fact I got xrays, a treatment plan, an antibiotic, and a referral immediately and for only a few dollars, I am more than pleased."- J.M. / Google / May 01, 2019

What to Expect
Dental bonding takes place in DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills's dental office and is generally pain-free thus there is no need for sedation. To prep the tooth and make it applicable for effective bonding, our dentists will etch the top surface of the tooth and apply a special gel. Prior to application, the resin is created to mimic the patient's current tooth shade and then slowly painted onto the surface. A special ray of light is applied to harden and cure the resin until it fully covers the treatment area. During the final step in this process, our dentists will polish and buff the tooth's surface to double check the bonded teeth are even. The unbonded teeth may also be contoured and polished with buffing instruments to remove sharp edges.
Individuals at DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills may discover that their newly sealed and polished bonded teeth feel foreign at first, but patients eventually get used to the new addition to their smile. To prolong the lift of dental bonding, each patient should attend yearly dental visits with our dentists. After your bonding and contouring procedure, patients will be asked to avoid staining foods and drinks, as well as smoking and teeth grinding. With good care, this cosmetic treatment can last about 10 years before an additional treatment is needed.
Dental bonding may be needed to repair a chipped or discolored tooth. Due to the fact that this is a cosmetic treatment, dental insurance might not cover the expense. If dental bonding is suggested to repair the teeth, insurance may apply. Our staff at DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills will contact each patient's insurance company to determine the coverage and overall fees. If insurance does not apply, our dentists at DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills are proud to offer convenient payment options.
