About Dental Bonds and Contour
If you struggle with cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth and want to achieve a brighter, more beautiful smile, our staff at Crown Dental in West Richland, WA can help. Through dental bonding and contouring, our dentist Dr. Walberto Cantu can restore your teeth without the use of invasive procedures. Dental bonding is the application of simple resin that matches the color of your teeth to hide subtle flaws, even out imperfections, and fill in gaps. Dental contouring is the careful reshaping of the enamel to enhance the tooth’s length, shape, or surface. The combination of dental bonding and contouring can help reshape and brighten your teeth to so that you can smile with confidence.

What to Expect
This treatment option is fast and painless. We 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 harden the resin, and then the tooth is polished to to its final shape. This procedure is usually performed in the dentist’s office with little or no anesthesia.
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 their dentist 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.
Prices will vary depending on the condition of the teeth and the number of teeth that are treated, but patients should expect to spend between $50 and $300 per tooth. If the bonding or contouring is being performed to correct a trauma or accident, the patient’s insurance may cover some of the costs. Our front office will check to determine the patient’s coverage before billing.
