Dental Bonding and Contouring Newton, MA

Overview

You can't always avoid accidents. You may take a bad step, trip, and chip your tooth. It's also possible that a tooth can become discolored from an illness or medication. Our certified dental team performs bonding and contouring to improve small cosmetic flaws at our office in Newton, MA. An effective and quick treatment, bonding and contouring uses composite resin (also used for tooth-colored fillings) to hide discoloration, fill gaps between teeth, lengthen a tooth, and even improve a tooth's shape. For an effective treatment to enhance your smile, schedule an appointment to get more information about bonding and contouring at Newton Centre Dental.

Best Candidates

Dental bonding and contouring may fix gaps, chips, cracks, discoloration, tooth length, and other flaws. Dental bonding and contouring is a more affordable cosmetic procedure and can usually be done in a single appointment. It does not need prep work, like crowns or veneers, but it is not as strong and typically does not stay on as long. Dental bonding and contouring is ideal for minor flaws, but if you want bigger improvements, a different restorative or cosmetic treatment may be better. At your consult, we will listen to your needs and wants and then discuss your options.

What To Expect

Bonding and contouring will be typically done in a single appointment in our office in Newton, MA. You shouldn't need anesthesia; however, options for sedation may be reviewed at your consult for concerns, like fear, anxiety, and a strong gag reflex. As soon as you're ready, we will apply the bonding material to the desired areas aided by one of our dental assistants. The composite resin will be set with more layers added, as needed. After the layers of composite resin are set, we will shape and smooth the composite resin and your natural enamel for a beautiful result.

I highly recommend Newton Centre Dental for great dentists, support staff, and great dental care!

I am a relatively new patient to Dr. Parent. I was a patient of Dr. Levitt’s for a very long time. Dr. Parent has been a wonderful dentist to me so far. I live on the south shore and it takes me close to an hour to get to my appointments. She is sensitive to this and has worked within her schedule to fit me in for unexpected dental issues that have come up. I am so appreciative of these efforts. Just this morning I was quite late for my 7:30am appointment (20 minutes!) and she graciously proceeded without uttering a word of my being so late. She is patient, kind and takes the time to deliver the best care she can and for that I am most grateful. She has been a wonderful addition to Newton Center Dental and I’m happy she’s my dentist 😊

A+ service all around from the entire team at NCD. Dr. Parent does really great work and makes a trip to the dentist surprisingly pleasant! Maddie does the most painless cleanings I’ve ever had, with a comforting helping hand from Jenny. Always a warm greeting upon entry from Ellen, which gets the visit off to a great start!

You cannot ask for a more caring and empathetic Dental office! Starting with the front desk, Ellen and Laurie (and now Woo) are not only enjoyable to work with, they have a tremendous attention to detail in order to assist you with follow-up as well as with the overwhelming world of insurance! Selecting a new dentist office is always a challenge. When I came to Newton 3 years ago I was releived to find a truly competent and caring office such as Newton Centre Dental. The experience of the staff quickly puts you at ease. The combination of Jenny as a Dental Assistant to Dr. Parent creates a "Dynamic Duo" from my perspective!! I truly feel cared for here, and that is why I will continue with Newton Centre Dental.

Recovery

Once you've had bonding and contouring, it's important to not consume staining drinks and food (such as tea, coffee, and tobacco) for two days. The bonding material can stain and chip so do not bite hard objects, like ice, hard candy, pens, and your fingernails, and clean your teeth immediately after eating. Teeth that have been bonded and contoured need to be cared for like natural teeth with daily flossing, brushing, and mouthwash. Dental cleanings at Newton Centre Dental can help to polish away stains from the bonding material. With good care, bonding and contouring may last as long as ten years. At your dental examination, we can help you determine if your dental bonding and contouring procedure should be done again to refresh your smile.

Insurance Coverage

Bonding and contouring is an aesthetic treatment so it's typically not paid by insurance. Our office can talk to your dental insurance company to double-check if it is covered; however, you will probably need to pay for the cost of the treatment on your own. At your consult, we will discuss your estimated costs and payment methods we accept at Newton Centre Dental.

Bonding and Contouring

Bonding and contouring is a wonderful procedure if you would like to enhance minor flaws in your teeth without the time and expense of other cosmetic procedures.
