You can't always avoid accidents. 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. Dr. Troy Gombert performs dental bonding and contouring to improve small cosmetic flaws at his private practice in Chandler, AZ. An effective and quick 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. For an effective treatment to enhance your smile, schedule an appointment to get more information about bonding and contouring with Dr. Gombert.
Cosmetic bonding is an affordable, quick, and painless way to repair many cosmetic flaws or injuries, including:
- Gaps in teeth
- Spots or stains
- Chipped teeth
Dental bonding sculpts individual teeth without requiring removal of any tooth structure. This technique bonds a composite material that looks, acts, and feels like the real thing to an existing tooth. This procedure usually doesn't require the use of an anesthetic, is relatively quick to apply and gives an immediate result. It is also less expensive than porcelain veneers.

Thank you again Dr. Gombert for the fillings. A+++++"- M.A. / Google / Oct 05, 2019
Dental bonding and contouring may fix gaps, chips, cracks, discoloration, tooth length, and other flaws. Dental bonding and contouring is a more affordable cosmetic procedure and can usually be done in a single appointment. It does not need prep work like crowns or veneers, but it is not as strong and typically does not stay on as long. Dental bonding and contouring are ideal for minor flaws, but if you would prefer major improvements, a different restorative or cosmetic treatment may be better. At your consult, Dr. Gombert will listen to your needs and wants and then discuss your options.
What To Expect
Bonding and contouring will typically be performed in a single appointment in our office in Chandler, AZ. You shouldn't need anesthesia; however, options for sedation may be reviewed with Dr. Gombert at your consult for concerns like fear, anxiety, and a strong gag reflex. As soon as you're ready, Dr. Gombert will apply the bonding material to the desired areas aided by one of his assistants. The composite resin will be set with more layers added, as needed. After the layers of composite resin are set, Dr. Gombert will shape and smooth the composite resin and your natural enamel for a beautiful result.
Once you've had a bonding contouring procedure, 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, and 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 our dental practice can help to polish away stains from the bonding material. With proper care, bonding and contouring may last as long as ten years. At your dental examination, Dr. Gombert can help you determine if your dental bonding and contouring procedure should be touched up to refresh your smile.
Bonding and contouring is an aesthetic treatment, so it's typically not paid for by insurance. Our office can talk to your dental insurance company to double check if it is covered; however, you will probably need to pay for the cost of the treatment on your own. At your consult with Dr. Gombert, he will discuss the estimated costs and payment methods we accept at our dental practice.
