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.
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
The cleanliness of the office and the professionalism of the dental team made me feel very comfortable at my appointment and well taken care of. Thank you very much to Dr. Katz and her wonderful team.
Dr. Katz is amazing!!!! No one likes to go to the dentist and now I love it. She is friendly, gentle, sympathetic, and does excellent dentistry. I have sent my coworkers and they are just as happy.
Dr. Katz is a well-educated and experienced dentist with an excellent bedside manner and a very gentle touch. Highly recommend!
Seeing Dr. Katz and her caring staff makes going to the dentist almost palatable 🤪. Dr. Katz is kind, compassionate, and a very good dentist. She’s not going for the money grab and is conservative in her treatment. Would highly recommend this practice.
I had Invisalign done by Dr. Katz and the results are next to magnificent! In 6 months' time, I have absolutely straight teeth and a smile I am proud of! I couldn’t have done it without the amazing dedication of Dr. Katz!
