When I arrived the receptionist met me with a smile. I had enough time to fill out my paperwork before I got called back. The dental assistant was nice and the Dentist was reassuring. The booker my appointment to be seen with an oral surgeon and made a follow up appointment to have the rest of my teeth checked out.

What to Expect
Dental bonding is performed in DentalWorks - High Point's dental office and is generally pain-free so it does not require sedation. To prep the tooth and get it ready for effective bonding, our dentists will scrape the top surface of the tooth and apply a conditioning gel. Before it is applied, the resin is created to match the patient's natural tooth shade and then carefully painted onto the enamel. A special light is applied to harden and set the resin until it completely covers the treated area. After this process, our dentists will polish and buff the surface of the tooth to make certain the bonded teeth are even. The natural teeth can also be contoured and polished with polishing instruments to take away sharp edges.
Individuals at DentalWorks - High Point may find that their newly bonded and contoured teeth feel funny at first, but patients gradually get used to the new addition to their smile. To prolong the lift of dental bonding, our patients should attend ongoing dental check-ups with our dentists. After your bonding treatment, patients will need to avoid staining foods and drinks, as well as tobacco products and teeth grinding. With a proactive dental care approach, this cosmetic treatment can last for a number of years before an additional treatment is needed.
Dental bonding may be needed to fix a chipped or discolored tooth. But because this is a cosmetic treatment, dental insurance may or may not cover the expense. If this treatment is suggested to fix the teeth, insurance may apply. Our staff at DentalWorks - High Point will call each patient's insurance company to confirm the coverage and overall fees. If insurance does not apply, our dentists at DentalWorks - High Point are proud to offer affordable payment options.
