Accidents happen. 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 experienced dental team performs bonding and contouring to improve small cosmetic flaws at our office in Pompano Beach, FL. A fast but effective 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.

"Without a doubt the absolute best experience possible. I was referred by a friend, thank God I was. From the very 1st phone call, Asly was tremendous, got my son in right away. My son for various reasons had rotted teeth. After spending a fortune on bridges, extractions, etc.. no other dentist leveled with me that he Had week teeth that would continue to get worse. He was in such severe pain for so long. Infections, absesses. Rot. I decided the most economical and permanent solution that I could afford was total extraction and dentures. I took him for quotes, typical xray,Nonpersonal attention, just another mouth.Took him to Seda $4000 less. And the caring office manager, Fernanda worked with me for over an hour, applying for financing. She finally set me up with a payment plan orI would have been unable to help my son.After explaining my situation they didn't even charge for his consultation. His dentist Dr. Hanna Butenko was beyond fantastic. All other quotes were pull all teeth at once. Stick In the permanent denture, with putty, then 6 months later come back to see how his jaw adjusted and re-putty, and all money immediately. Wow, Dr. Hanna, saw the horrible mess in my sons mouth. Set up 3 separate appts. One week apart, she saidIt would be way too painful to do all at onceAnd because of the extent of damage some Would be very difficult extractions. And may I say what a knowledgable caring lady. Well three weeks later, I'm sitting at lunch,Final teeth coming out as I write this. And he will be leaving today with his tempatoryDentures, he would not go out because of his teeth. Cant wait to see him really smile again.Three months from now he goes back, they see how his jaws have adjusted AND make him his permanent set! The reason this is so long and detailed is because, I know due to todays culture and poor choices, many young men have rotted hurting teeth, and think there's no answer. Seda also offers all the other options, butDont give up, our choice worked for us, and was affordable. Fernanda & Asly are like family, make my 29 year old son & I feel welcome and special. They know us by name and they should be proud of there courteous. Fun yet professionall manner. Lastly, I cannot Say enough about Dr. Butenko. She comes out of the back to personally see me each visitNot to mention, you will never see 3 more Pretty, really caring and a joy to see each timeYoung wmen.They treat you like family!!!And I havent even met Dr. Hill yet, who my friend said was exceptional. Ther is no other place I will ever go. My other son is next!!!They get 5 out of 5. Not a fair scale, really10 out of 5 stars."- G.K. / Google / Jun 20, 2019
Dental bonding and contouring may help with cracks, chips, gaps, discoloration, tooth length, and other flaws. Dental bonding and contouring is a more affordable cosmetic procedure and can usually be done in one quick visit. It does not need prep work, like crowns or veneers, but it is not as strong and typically does not remain in place as long. Dental bonding and contouring is ideal for minor flaws, but if you want major improvements, a different restorative or cosmetic treatment may be better. At your consult, we will listen to your needs and goals and then discuss your options.
What To Expect
Bonding and contouring will be typically done in a single appointment in our office in Pompano Beach, FL. You shouldn't need anesthesia; however, options for sedation may be reviewed with our team 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 assistants. The composite resin will be set with more layers added as needed. After the layers of composite resin are set, a member of our team will shape and smooth the composite resin and your natural enamel for a beautiful result.
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, or 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 SEDA Dental of Pompano Beach 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, our team can help you determine if your dental bonding and contouring procedure should be done again to refresh your smile.
Bonding and contouring is an aesthetic treatment so it's typically not covered by insurance. Our office can speak with your dental insurance company to determine 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 the payment methods we accept at SEDA Dental of Pompano Beach.
