About Dental Bonds and Contour
For a few cosmetic issues, such as stained teeth with breaks, dental bonding and contouring at DentalWorks - Hickory in Hickory, NC offers a more smooth and gorgeous smile. Fixing the teeth with dental bonding is one of the fastest cosmetic dental procedures at DentalWorks - Hickory by our dentists that incorporates a resin solution to seal subtle aesthetic irregularities. The resin substance is a natural appearing match to the real teeth so it is almost entirely invisible. This cosmetic procedure is also used to create a tooth appearance that looks longer. This aesthetic procedure closes together small gaps between the teeth, and recontours the edges for a straight and natural look producing a high-quality smile.

"My very first visit to Dental Works was to get a painful tooth extracted. It went amazingly well.. Dr. Spurgas was wonderful and his assistant, Natasha, was absolutely wonderful. I have lived in the Hickory area for 10 plus years and wish I had heard about Dental Works back then. But better late than never. I went in yesterday for my "new patient" appt. I can not tell you how empressed I was. I have never had such an indepth exam from a denal outfit in my life. From Jessica, who took individual x-rays of my teeth to Michele who examined each and every tooth and then the one and only amazing Dr. Spurgas who told me the treatment plan they figured out for me. I've got a lot of work to be done but believe me I know I'm in capable hands with my team and Dental Works."- T.C. / Google / Mar 02, 2018
"Great place. Friendly and knowledgable staff. I am from Chapel Hill, and I love this place more than UNC Chapel Hill Dental a lot more, because the staff are a lot more personal. Even though they don't have the most up to date equipment, my insurance works with them while UNC does not."- M.Z. / Google / Jan 28, 2018

What to Expect
Dental contouring and bonding takes place in DentalWorks - Hickory's dental practice and is typically pain-free thus there is no need for numbing or sedation. To make the tooth and make it applicable for proper bonding, our dentists will roughen the top layer of the tooth and put on a special gel. Prior to application, the resin is prepared to mimic the patient's current tooth whiteness and then delicately painted onto the surface. A special ray of light is aimed at the teeth to harden and cure the resin until the resin fully covers the treatment area. During the final step in this process, our dentists will buff and smooth the tooth's surface to make sure the bonded teeth are level. The unbonded teeth may also be polished with dental instruments to remove sharp edges.
Clients at DentalWorks - Hickory may discover that their finished sealed and polished bonded teeth feel weird at first, but patients eventually get used to how they look and feel. To take care of dental bonding, each patient should make consistent dental visits with our dentists. Proceeding your bonding and contouring procedure, patients need to avoid dark liquids and staining foods, as well as smoking and grinding their teeth to avoid wear. With good care, bonding and contouring can last between 3 - 10 years before another bonding and contouring treatment is needed.
Aesthetic dental bonding may be recommended to repair a fragmented and unsightly tooth. Due to the fact that this is a procedure that is considered an aesthetic enhancement, dental benefits might not cover the fees. If dental bonding is in fact needed to repair the teeth, dental coverage may cover some of the cost. Our insurance managers at DentalWorks - Hickory will contact each patient's claims department to determine the liability for payment. If the expenses are higher than what the patient can afford, our dentists at DentalWorks - Hickory can assist by offering convenient billing options.
