Teeth Bonding in Bethesda, MD

Below are answers to frequently asked questions regarding teeth bonding:
What is teeth bonding?
Teeth bonding is a process that involves using a color-matched, resin material to conceal minor blemishes on your dental structures. The material is placed over the blemish, hardened with ultraviolet light, and shaped down to blend in seamlessly with your natural smile.
What can teeth bonding help with?
Teeth bonding can help patients conceal bleach-resistant stains, chips, minor cracks, and gaps. This procedure is meant only to address minor cosmetic concerns. Major chips or cracks that may impact your smile’s functionality should be addressed with one of our restorative dentistry solutions instead.
Can children benefit from teeth bonding?
Yes, teeth bonding is suitable for children. This procedure is minimally invasive and will allow us to address minor concerns on your child’s baby teeth as we wait for them to eventually fall out and be replaced by their permanent teeth.
How long will teeth bonding last?
Teeth bonding will last several years and can be easily reapplied to your dental structures if needed. For a more permanent and comprehensive solution, you may want to consider porcelain veneers as a longer-lasting alternative. Porcelain veneers are thin shells designed to replace the entire front-facing portion of your affected tooth, rather than spot-treating it with bonding.
