What Is Dental Bonding and Contouring?

No matter how hard you try to avoid them, accidents happen. For example, maybe you take a bad fall and chip a tooth. It's also possible that a tooth can get discolored from a medication or illness. Our dental experts at Contemporary Dentistry perform dental bonding and contouring to fix these small cosmetic flaws. A fast, effective treatment, bonding and contouring uses composite resin (also used for tooth-colored fillings) to cover tooth discoloration, reduce gaps in your teeth, make a tooth longer, or even change a tooth's shape. For an effective treatment to improve your teeth, schedule an appointment to learn more about dental bonding and contouring at Contemporary Dentistry in Fairfax, VA or Manassas, VA.

Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Dental Bonding and Contouring?

Bonding and contouring can fix cracks, chips, gaps, discoloration, tooth length, and other flaws. Bonding and contouring is a more affordable cosmetic procedure normally done in one quick visit. It does not need prep work like veneers or crowns; however, it isn’t as strong and usually does not stay on as long. Dental bonding and contouring are good for small issues, but another restorative or cosmetic procedure may be better if you need more extensive changes. During your consult, we will listen to your needs and wants and then discuss your treatment options.

What to Expect from Dental Bonding and Contouring

Bonding and contouring can generally be done in a single visit at our office in Fairfax, VA or Manassas, VA. You may not need any anesthesia; however, sedation methods can be discussed with our dental team at your consultation for concerns, like anxiety or a strong gag reflex. As soon as you are ready, our dental assistants will apply the composite resin to the needed areas of your teeth. The composite resin will be set with a special light before more layers are added. After the layers of composite resin are complete, your dental practitioner will contour and smooth both the resin and your natural teeth for a beautiful finish.

UPDATE: January 2024. My 6th year with Dr. Morales. Had another cleaning. As usual, great experience. I don't have insurance, so I am happy they still honor Aetna's discount membership for real savings. Started to learn Spanish and I can practice it in real life...and for free! Hasta la proxima vez ! UPDATE: January 2023. Just had the cleaning done, after five years still a satisfied customer. This is my second review for this excellent office. After neglecting my teeth for quite some time a broken toothed forced me to visit a dentist. After a research on the web and subsequent phone calls I settled for the Contemporary Dentistry of Manassas. One of the reason was that not having insurance the office accepts Aetna Savings Plans, basically a discount for the services. The discounts are real as I found out calling some other offices. My first visit was in January 2018. I have had numerous procedures done since then (altogether 30 - thirty - visits) ranging from deep cleaning, numerous cavities and including one implant and two crowns. All work was done in the office, the quality of work has been 100%+, I have never experienced nay 'post-procedure' pains or complications. The staff is very friendly and I am very happy I picked Contemporary dentistry for my dental needs. UPDATE: January 2023. Just had the cleaning done, after five years still a satisfied customer.

My family and I have been patients of Dr. Morales and his practice for 18 years. The time period, alone, should be an indication of my family’s satisfaction.  Dr. Morales is wonderful...he invariably demonstrates serving his patients’ best interests and well-being in recommending and carrying out treatment. We have never had lingering issues in any treatment given.  We have successfully recommended him and his practice and will continue to do so. We never have a problem with scheduling appointments and the office staff is always welcoming and pleasant. The office, itself, is modern and comfortable.  If I could give 10 Stars, I would! P.S. Love our hygienist, Amy.

I’ve had a very positive experience with Contemporary Dentistry of Fairfax starting with my initial phone call to make my appointment, to the welcoming and professional office staff, and the talent and skill of the dentists. I currently see Dr Noumy but I trust that I would get the same care from the other dentists as well.

I travel from Florida for Dentist Diego Morales.  He is super careful and I don’t have any pain.  Excellent work in my mouth.  Dentist Diego Morales treats you like part of his family.  No waiting times when you have an appointment.  The receptionist and the staff very attentive.  I recommended 100%.

I have been a patient of Contemporary Dentistry (Dr. Morales) for many years and my experience with his practice has been very positive (especially considering I do not enjoy dental work). He has always made me aware of options for treatment. Over the years, he has always reassured me during instances where I may need a filling, root canal, crown and most recently a dental implant. The staff at Contemporary Dentistry, including hygienist Amy and office personnel are very professional and considerate. Dr. Abril did the implant procedure and his expertise and followup care was especially appreciated. My experience with this practice is such that I have not explored other options for my dental care and consistently see them for my regular checkups. If there are any concerns between regular visits, all I have to do is phone the office and an appointment is available very quickly. I am very happy with the service I have receive from Contemporary Dentistry of Manassas and recommend them without reservation.
