What Is Composite Bonding and Contouring?
Sometimes, accidents happen. You may take a bad fall and chip a tooth. Sometimes, a tooth can get discolored for any number of reasons, such as a medication or illness. Dr. Ellen Katz and Dr. Bridget Glazarov perform composite bonding and contouring to fix these small aesthetic flaws at their dental office in New York, NY. A fast but effective cosmetic treatment, bonding and contouring uses composite resin (also used for tooth-colored fillings) to mask discoloration, reduce gaps in your teeth, lengthen a tooth, or even improve a tooth's shape. If you want an effective treatment to enhance your teeth, schedule a consultation to get more information about dental bonding and contouring at Maison BE.
What Are the Benefits?
Cracked or damaged teeth can be painful and a hazard for causing more issues down the road. With composite bonding and contouring at Maison BE Dental Studio, benefits our New York, NY patients enjoy include:
- Filling in awkward gaps in the teeth
- Disguising cracks and chips
- Hiding stains from the teeth
- Quick, single-stop treatment
Am I a Candidate for Composite Bonding and Contouring?
Cosmetic bonding and contouring may correct gaps, chips, cracks, tooth length, discoloration, and more. Dental bonding and contouring is a more affordable cosmetic procedure and can usually be done in a single visit. It does not need prep work like crowns or veneers, but it isn’t as strong and typically doesn’t last as long. Composite bonding and contouring is best for small issues, but if you need bigger improvements, another restorative or cosmetic procedure may be considered. During your consult, Dr. Katz or Dr. Glazarov will listen to your needs and wants and then discuss your best treatment options.
What to Expect with Bonding and Contouring
Composite bonding and contouring is generally done in a single visit at our office in New York, NY. You shouldn't need anesthesia; however, options for sedation may be discussed for concerns, like dental anxiety. Once you are comfortable in the treatment chair, your dentist will apply the bonding material to the needed areas. The composite resin will be hardened with a special light, and more layers will be added as needed. After the bonding has set, your dentist will contour and smooth the filling material to create a natural-looking, even finish. After your treatment, you should avoid staining drinks, foods, and tobacco products for at least 48 hours. Bonded and contoured teeth should be cleaned just like natural teeth with daily flossing, brushing, and rinsing with mouthwash.
Maison BE Dental Studio Reviews
An exceptional dental experience like none other. From the moment I walked in the door until I left, I was treated like gold. The staff is warm and inviting. My hygienist, Jade was personable and put me at ease during my new patient experience. Dr. Ellen helped me create a plan of care based on my goals and what's best best for my oral health. The office is fabulous and it's a boutique experience I cannot recommend enough. This dental studio is like none other and I am so pleased to be a new patient at such a wonderful and caring dental studio. They have added touches and options that set them apart from all others and they have raised the bar on what an amazing patient experience is supposed to feel like. I speak confidently and with experience writing this review as I'm a nurse and they know what it means to make it all about the patient. They have thought of everything and then things that make sense that no other dental office has offered during an office visit. My under eye patches were soothing and my favorite part! I truly feel that everyone has my best interest at heart and insures I feel like a VIP while at Maison Be. They sent me home with a beautiful bag of goodies which made my day. I cannot wait to wear my new sweatshirt and feel apart of the Maison Be family as I am proud to represent such an exceptional dental studio. This women owned business has knocked it out of the park!!!!! I am pleased to support these women as they build a brand unlike none other. Thank you everyone who made my first experience one that I will not forget. I can't wait to go back and who says that about the dentist?! Fabulous and fun!!
Have been looking for a new dentist since i moved to the city and after some research and a TikTok post(haha) i decided to try out Maison Be. To start off the appointment making process was so smooth for a new patient, didn't have to call just made an appointment online; the front desk staff is very very organized, so welcoming and kind, very short wait and even offered me a beverage while i waited. The hygienist(completely forgot her name but i believe it starts with a J) and Dr (Ellen Katz) were both so sweet and personable. They both made me feel so comfortable with the amenities provided AND checked in with me while they were checking and cleaning my teeth. I really appreciate the service and visit I received because as a person of color I feel a lot of offices aren't as welcoming and genuine about the care they give me. So glad I found my new dentist! Thank you so much!!!
The doctor has the most personable approach, remembering me every time. Had my first ever filling (I was nervous) and they made me so comfortable. It also was super quick and efficient. As a former dentist hater/avoider, they have truly turned my views on the dentist around.
Dr. Ellen is the best. She had a comprehensive understanding of what I needed to get taken care of and she provided a plan that would work effectively to ensure I get the results I want. She was extremely attentive and performed every procedure smoothly with great results and zero pain! I recommend her for all dental needs and trust her to do what’s best for the patient because of her vast experience and academic knowledge. The experience at the office was 5 stars, it’s a beautiful place and felt like I was at a luxury spa!
Absolutely amazing. A trip to the dentist that feels like a relaxing day on vacation.

Composite Bonding & Contouring FAQs
How long does composite bonding last?
Composite bonding is not permanent and will become more fragile with time. While each patient is different, you can usually expect your composite bonding to last anywhere from 4 – 8 years. Restorations, however, are very simple and can be completely in just one appointment.
How much does composite bonding cost?
The total cost of composite bonding can vary from one patient to another due to a variety of factors. Our talented team will listen to your goals and concerns during your initial consultation in order to create a treatment plan that is completely catered to your unique needs. Once this plan has been agreed upon, we can provide a more accurate estimate of the total price.
Should I get composite bonding or veneers?
This is often up to personal preference. Dental bonding is the better options when it comes to fixing chips or gaps in your teeth. However, veneers are permanent and, therefore, will often be the more cost-effective option over the long run.
