"Amazing staff, excellent care!"- S.L. / Google / Jun 14, 2019
"This is an excellent office. All of the staff are very nice, I like the way they are organized, and they offer more services than the typical dentist's office. I particularly like that, when they are assessing your gums, they go tooth by tooth and rate your gums in that area on a scale of 1-4. Other offices just give a vague "they look good/bad" and it doesn't mean to much. The way they do it allows you to see how healthy your gums are in each particular area and they can track the health over time. They also have a service in which they use a laser to kill the bacteria under the gum line, which isn't covered by most insurances but is very inexpensive and awesome that they have this. Highly recommend this office; I won't be going anywhere else!"- R.H. / Google / May 16, 2019

What to Expect
Dental bonding is performed in DentalWorks - Louisville'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 roughen 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 delicately 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 sure the bonded teeth are even. The natural teeth can also be contoured and polished with dental instruments to take away sharp edges.
Individuals at DentalWorks - Louisville may find that their newly bonded and contoured teeth feel weird 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 consistent dental check-ups with our dentists. After your bonding treatment, patients 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 between 3 - 10 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 - Louisville will call each patient's insurance company to confirm the coverage and overall fees. If insurance does not apply, our dentists at DentalWorks - Louisville are proud to offer affordable payment options.
