"I had my first visit to see Dr. Hansen, and it was a good one. He and his staff were very professional and friendly. Looks like I picked the right dentist!"- M.P. / Google / Aug 28, 2017
"Great and friendly staff. My appointment was at 8 and was seen by Mr. Hansen at 8. Definitely recommend this place."- M.R. / Google / Jul 31, 2017
"Fabulous office. I have been having weird issues with my insurance company, resulting in me not having been to the dentist for a full year and now I've got several issues with my teeth. Dr. Hansen (he told me to call him Richard, what a cool guy) was the most friendly, helpful dentist I have EVER been to. I'm pretty young and have found that a lot of doctors can be very patronizing to younger patients, but not with Dr. Hansen or any of the employees I spoke to. They are, however, VERY informative and answered every question I had under the sun.I had to drive 50 minutes to get there (I live in NC) because they're the closest provider that takes my insurance, but even when I get new insurance and can go to someone closer I will still return to this office.Karen, Rose, and the front office guy (his name escapes me!) are the bomb, super organized AND they sorted out everything with my insurance even though there were some technical difficulties. Tiffany (she took my x-rays and did my cleaning) was incredibly knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor.I read some negative reviews from a few years ago and got nervous before I went in, but I think that they've gotten new staff or those reviews weren't legit, because I can't believe that was the same office. I wish I could give them more than five stars, I am more than satisfied with this office and excited to have found a dentist that I don't mind going to (even if the drive sucks)!"- E.M. / Yelp / Jul 25, 2017

What to Expect
Dental reshaping and bonding takes place in DentalWorks - Fort Mill's in-house treatment room and is usually pain-free thus there is no need for general anesthesia. To prepare the tooth and make it applicable for long-term bonding, our dentists will engrave the top enamel of the tooth and paint on a special gel. Prior to application, the resin is made to mimic the patient's current tooth color and then gently painted onto the surface. A special ray of light is used to harden and cure the resin until the substance fully covers the treatment area. During the final step in this process, our dentists will smooth the tooth's surface to ensure the bonded teeth are uniform. The unbonded teeth may also be buffed with special instruments to remove sharp edges.
Patients at DentalWorks - Fort Mill may discover that their freshly sealed and polished bonded teeth feel different at first, but patients eventually get used to the way they feel. To maintain the tight fitting of dental bonding, each patient should schedule regular dental visits with our dentists. Following your bonding and contouring procedure, patients should avoid food and drink that can stain the teeth, as well as smoking and wear and tear on the teeth. With good care, aesthetic dental bonding can last up to a decade before another bonding procedure is needed.
Bonding and contouring may be suggested to repair a broken tooth. Due to the fact that this is a treatment that is cosmetic by nature, dental coverage might not cover the cost. If dental bonding is recommended to repair the teeth, coverage may be applied. Our billing staff at DentalWorks - Fort Mill will contact each patient's provider to determine the out-of-pocket expenses. If benefits cannot be used, our dentists at DentalWorks - Fort Mill offer convenient financing options.
