Teeth Bonding in Gaithersburg, MD
We clean the enamel and roughen the surface to prepare teeth for bonding treatment. This minimal preparation ensures that the bonding material adheres to the teeth. We color-match the bonding material to brighten teeth and ensure they are the same shade as natural teeth. Then, we shape and mold the bonding material to the tooth.
We cover chips, cracks, breaks, and discoloration on each tooth’s front, top, and bottom. Once the bonding material looks as natural as possible, we use a curing light to harden the material. Finally, we polish each tooth for a brilliant shine.
We may remove a small portion of tooth enamel to create a better surface for bonding to attach to. However, this does not damage the tooth’s structure. The procedure is minimally invasive and should not cause pain or discomfort.
Directly following treatment, avoid consuming staining foods or beverages like coffee, wine, tea, berries, and tomatoes, as they may stain the bonding. Also, avoid hard or crunchy foods to avoid sensitivity or damage to the bonding material. Patients may experience minor sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures after bonding is placed. However, it should go away within a few days.
Patients leave our office with a newly improved smile in just one appointment. Bonding is a fast way to fix minor cosmetic concerns in your smile. If you have questions about whether dental bonding can benefit your smile, contact our office. We look forward to seeing you and helping you reach your smile goals.
