Dental bonding and contouring during a bridal makeover helps correct minor cosmetic flaws. She offers dental bridal makeovers that can improve how a bride’s smile looks before her big day.
Who is the best candidate for dental bonding and contouring?
Before we start treatment, Dr. V. conducts a full dental exam to determine if dental bonding and contouring is right for you. It can help correct:
Tooth length or shape
Dental bonding and contouring is only used for minor cosmetic flaws. This means that if a patient has significant tooth damage, a smile makeover is a better option.
How does a dentist fix a chipped tooth?
Dental bonding and contouring is conducted without anesthesia. First, Dr. V. applies the bonding material to the teeth she’s treating. A composite resin is used and set with a special light before she adds layers to achieve the right look. After many layers of composite resin are set, she will shape and smooth the filling material to correct your chipped tooth. When you have chipped tooth pain, call Cosmetic Dental Studios in Beverly Hills as soon as possible. During a consultation, our team can assess your cosmetic concerns to see if dental bonding and contouring is the correct choice for you.
Recovery after dental bonding and contouring treatment
After dental bonding and contouring, avoid consuming any staining foods and beverages, such as coffee, tea, and tobacco, for at least 48 hours. The composite resin can chip and stain, so Dr. V. recommends you avoid biting on hard objects, like ice or hard candy. Also, brush your teeth as soon as possible after every meal. Bonded teeth need to be cleaned effectively to continue to look their best. Biannual cleanings help polish away stains on your composite resin. Your restoration can last for years with an efficient at-home oral hygiene routine of regular brushing and flossing. At your annual dental exam, Dr. V. will monitor how your restoration is lasting and determine when it’s time to add bonding.
Will insurance cover chipped tooth treatment?
Since dental bonding and contouring is considered an elective procedure, it isn’t usually covered. However, our Beverly Hills, CA dental team can contact your insurance company to verify your coverage. During your consultation, we can discuss an estimate of your procedure cost and payment options that we accept.
