What is Dental Bonding and Contouring?
Accidents happen — you could take a bad fall and chip your tooth, your tooth could become discolored due to an illness or medication, or a sports accident could cause slight damage to your tooth. Our dental team at East Village Dental Center performs bonding and contouring to fix these small cosmetic flaws. A fast but effective treatment, bonding and contouring applies composite resin (also used for tooth-colored fillings) to mask discoloration, fill gaps between teeth, make a tooth longer, and even improve the shape of a tooth. For a great treatment to enhance your smile, schedule an appointment at our New York, NY office to learn more about how bonding and contouring can help you create a beautiful smile.
Who Can Have Dental Bonding and Contouring?
Dental bonding and contouring can improve gaps, chips, cracks, discoloration, tooth length, and other flaws. Bonding and contouring is an affordable cosmetic treatment that can normally be done in a single appointment. It does not require the prep work of crowns or veneers; however, it is not as strong and usually doesn’t last as many years as other options. Bonding and contouring is good for minor flaws, so if you need bigger improvements, a different cosmetic or restorative treatment may be a better option. At your appointment, we will listen to your needs and concerns and then discuss if bonding and contouring is the best treatment option for you.
East Village Dental Center Reviews
Update [3/23/2023]: The office manager called me and assured me they will note my concerns and look to conduct better care of patients moving forward. I felt she was sincere and have since updated my review. I hope they continue to work on their patient care / Customer service as they are a vital health care facility in the community. Updated 1/30/2023 - Not sure what’s happened at East Village Dental however I think it’s a change in the management team that handles customer service. While they have updated the way they conduct business when you call they rarely pick up the phone, they do not return calls, they don’t have an emergency line for concerns post surgery. After an uncovering I developed canker sores and called them for a follow up they told me they’d call me back and instead I went the entire weekend in pain (see attached photo at your discretion). I did use warm water and salt to soothe the area but maybe they could have prescribed something to alleviate the pain which led to several days of headaches. There was little concern about my pain/discomfort which I’m very surprised from a place that I really liked and highly recommended just 1-2 years ago. After my crowns are in place I’m not sure I’ll go to them for a cleaning letting alone any serious oral surgery. Until they get a team that’s actually concerned about the customer/Patient stay away from EVD.
Excellent communication and kind staff. I have been coming here for ten years and I’m always kindly greeted, and well informed on the treatment expected. Highly recommended if you haven’t found that dental clinic that leaves you feeling like that’s the one. They are very professional and very efficient, as well as very accommodating. Cheerio
A wonderful practice! Both in their care and bedside manner, East Village Dental Center delivers ideal experiences. They’ve been serving my family and the community at large for many years. The receptionists are so nice and welcoming. The hygienist hooked me up with a painless cleaning and the doc was lovely. One can witness how imperative the reception desk being bilingual is here and how courtesy, a smile, cleanliness and quality care are so important to the diverse demographic that surrounds this gem. It’s walking distance for me, but I’d travel here if it wasn’t! Bravo!
Let me start by saying this dental office is for the community 100%, they are transparent about pricing from the moment you talk to them unlike many dentists in the area which I appreciated! Vanessa and Christine are funny , sweet, honest and understanding ! They took my concerns and budget seriously. Never met receptionists that are compassionate until these two! They squeezed me last minute ( literally) in and the dentist whose name was Amish was so informative and explained my crown procedure. Thank you all!! See you soon !! My two sisters get services here now I see why! 💚💚💚

How is Bonding and Contouring Performed?
Bonding and contouring is usually completed in a single appointment in our office. As soon as you're comfortable in the treatment chair, we will begin applying the tooth-colored composite resin to the desired areas of your teeth. The bonding material will be set, with more layers added as needed. Once the layers of composite resin are set, we will shape and polish the composite resin and your natural enamel for a beautiful finish.
Is There a Recovery Period After Dental Bonding and Contouring?
After bonding and contouring, you should avoid staining food and beverages (such as tobacco, coffee, and tea) for two days. The bonding material can chip and stain, so don’t bite hard objects like ice, hard candy, pens, pencils, and your fingernails, and you should brush your teeth right after eating. Teeth that have been bonded and contoured should be cared for like natural teeth with daily flossing, brushing, and mouthwash. Dental cleanings at our New York City dental office can help to polish away stains from the composite resin. With proper care, bonding and contouring may last as long as ten years. During your annual dental examination, we will help you decide if your cosmetic bonding and contouring procedure should be done again to maintain your appearance.

Does Insurance Cover Dental Bonding and Contouring?
Dental bonding and contouring is a cosmetic procedure, so it's usually not covered by your dental insurance. Our team can talk to your dental insurance company to check your coverage, but most patients will need to pay for the cost of the treatment on their own. In your consultation, we can discuss your estimated costs and the payment methods we take at East Village Dental Center.
