What Is Dental Bonding and Contouring?
No matter how hard you try to avoid them, accidents happen. You may take a bad step, trip, and chip your tooth. Sometimes a tooth can become discolored from an illness or medication. We offer dental bonding and contouring to fix small cosmetic flaws at his office in Walnut Creek, CA. A fast, effective cosmetic treatment, bonding and contouring applies composite resin (the same material used for tooth-colored fillings) to cover discoloration, fill gaps between teeth, lengthen a tooth, or even improve the shape of a tooth. Life Dental & Orthodontics proudly offers dental bonding and contouring as an effective treatment to enhance your smile.
What Can I Expect from Dental Bonding and Contouring?
Bonding and contouring can be generally completed in a single visit to our office in Walnut Creek, CA. You shouldn't need any anesthesia, but options for sedation may be discussed during your appointment if you have any fear, anxiety, or a strong gag reflex. As soon as you are comfortable in the treatment chair, we will begin applying the bonding material to the desired areas aided by one of our dental assistants. The resin will be hardened with a special light with more layers added, as needed. After the layers of composite resin are set, we will shape and polish the filling material and your natural enamel for an even appearance.

Absolutely love this place! Friendly and accommodating staff and I really appreciate Dr Hockel’s knowledge of what’s going on with not only my teeth, but how it all works together with my airway and everything else too!
I came to Doctor Hockel due to problems with sleep apnea. He diagnosed a narrow palate and some other issues that ultimately are obstructing my airway and recommended a course of palate expansion (upper and lower) before going for more extensive surgery to correct problems with my jaw. It's been really great working with him and his staff! They're all extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. They've answered every question I had and taken the time to explain what's being done each time (in what's going to be a couple-year-long process.) They're definitely using the latest tools and techniques and I feel completely comfortable with whatever they recommend. All in all, a *really* great dentist! [Edit from 2+ years in the future - 10/18/2023] I had my jaw surgery (total TMJ replacement and MMA (Maxillomandibular advancement, to move the upper teeth forward) in St Louis in May (via the only surgeon Dr Hockel trusts to do the surgery, who really is great) and returned to Dr Hockel's care in late June. Sleep apnea is cured, my bite was lined up and everything went well. Today was a great day - I got my braces off! We're now in the process of stabilizing the teeth with a retainer, but they look great and feel even better, with everything in my bite closing in the right places and all the teeth nice and straight and even. Dr Hockel's staff were awesome as usual - I showed up 20 minutes early and they said "come right in!" and we got to work. If you ever need to deal with airway issues (or indeed with orthodontia and other dental procedures), definitely give Life Dental and Orthodontics a call. They're the best!
A bit challenging to say "loved it" for a visit to the dentist, but we have been clients of Dr. Brian Hockel and his father before him for close to thirty years. We have been very pleased with the dental service, the staff and the facilities. Dr. Brian is very skilled and goes out of his way to provide holistic, thorough and caring treatment. He's a fine dentist (and a good musician and magician, as well). His staff is excellent. They are very well trained , friendly and empathetic.
Very friendly and knowledgeable.
