About Dental Bonds and Contour

Our dentists at Emigh Dental Care offer dental bonding and contouring for those in need of cosmetic repair such as cracks, chips, asymmetry, and stains. With resin bonding, existing teeth are covered and corrected to create an attractive appearance. Dental bonding is a great alternative to invasive techniques that require weeks of recovery time and can even help lengthen short teeth and fill small gaps. Dental contouring or tooth reshaping removes small amounts of enamel to create the desired shape and surface for a stunning smile. With dental bonding and contouring, our Long Beach, CA dentists are able to create that gorgeous smile that patients desire. 

What to Expect

This treatment option is fast, safe, and effective. Our dentists will begin by etching the surface layer of the tooth and applying a conditioning gel, which will help ensure the resin will correctly bond to the tooth. The resin itself is matched to the existing tooth color and shaped to match the teeth near it. After that, a hardening light is used to seal the resin, and then the tooth is polished to its final shape. This procedure is usually performed in our dental office with little or no anesthesia. 

Treatment Aftercare

Patients should expect results to last for 3-10 years after this treatment. Good dental hygiene can prolong the duration, so patients are encouraged to follow a good home oral care routine and visit our office for regular exams and cleanings. Since dental bonding is easier to chip or stain than dental veneers, patients should avoid staining foods and drinks, quit smoking, and avoid biting hard objects. Even after the results diminish, the teeth can often be easily re-treated in order to prolong the results.
