What Is Dental Bonding and Contouring?

At Washington Elite Dentistry, our team performs bonding and contouring to fix small cosmetic flaws, like chipped, cracked, or stained teeth. Maybe you took a bad fall and chipped your tooth or used a medication that caused your teeth to become discolored. As a fast, effective cosmetic treatment, bonding and contouring applies composite resin to cover discoloration, reduces gaps in your teeth, makes a tooth longer, and even changes a tooth's shape. To enhance the appearance of your smile and learn more about the simple process of bonding and contouring, make an appointment at our Washington, D.C. office.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Bonding and Contouring?

At Washington Elite Dentistry, dental bonding and contouring can yield plenty of advantages for Washington, DC individuals hoping to boost the look and usability of their teeth. These benefits entail:

  • Addresses slight aesthetic imperfections, like cracks, chips, and discoloration
  • Presents a cost-effective option versus more involved oral procedures, like crowns or veneers
  • Calls for only tiny enamel removal, conserving the natural tooth structure
  • Short and comfortable service
  • Improves tooth size, shape, and positioning
  • Expands the strength and stability of weakened or worn-out teeth
  • Creates lasting results
  • Can elevate a patient's self-esteem regarding their smile

Am I A Candidate for Dental Bonding and Contouring?

Dental bonding and contouring is ideal for minor flaws, such as cracks, chips, gaps, stains, or short or misshapen teeth. It does not require the prep work of veneers or crowns, but it is not as strong and typically does not stay on as long, making it a more cost-effective solution for many patients. For more complex cases, a different restorative or cosmetic treatment may be better. At your appointment, we will listen to your goals and then go over your best treatment options.

What Can I Expect from Dental Bonding and Contouring?

Bonding and contouring can be generally completed in a single visit at our office in Washington, D.C. You should not need any anesthesia, but sedation methods can be discussed with our team during your consultation if you have any anxiety or a strong gag reflex. As soon as you are ready, one of our dentists will begin applying the bonding material to the needed areas of your teeth with the help of a dental assistant. The composite resin will be set with a special light with more layers added, as needed. After the layers of composite resin are set, we will contour and smooth the filling material and your natural enamel for a beautiful result.

As someone who’s been a returning customer of theirs for a few years, I can say with complete confidence that WED continues to be the best of its kind! First, I’ll say that the location is convenient & easily accessible with it being right near Metro Center Station. Dr. Berman remains the best at her job, always being friendly & having a positive attitude while ensuring every procedure is completed without issues. One of their awesome staff members by the name of Marina handled my deep cleaning & is very passionate about her job. You can tell as soon as you meet her & she has this very creative way of holding you accountable for your oral hygiene that I very much like. I also have to mention Michelle, their receptionist as well. She’s very kind, knowledgeable on everything they do & will share her own personal experiences that can help ease your anxiety so when you leave, you’ll be reassured and in a much better mood than when you came in. They’re also very flexible on payment options so you don’t have to worry about paying unreasonably large amounts of money right away. To anyone who’s wants a clean, welcoming, & affordable dentistry with an overall amazing staff, I heavily encourage you to try WED!

I had my dental work done in Serbia recently. I had a couple of issues and had to get it checked by the dentist ASAP ! Made my appointment through a friend! She highly recommended the Washington Elite Dentistry ! The front desk was able to squeeze me on the same day since it was emergency-thank you, Michelle! Dr Berman took a first look, and she was very clear about what was going on and what should be done. We did x-rays and ct scan on site. After her, Dr. Khashayar checked me as well, and he clarified situations about my implants. Any future work from now on I am doing here! Thank you

What is the Recovery Process for Dental Bonding and Contouring?

After dental bonding and contouring, you should not consume staining drinks and food (such as coffee, tea, and tobacco) for 48 hours. The composite resin can chip and stain, so don't bite down on hard objects such as hard candy, fingernails, and pens, and brush your teeth right after eating. Bonded teeth need to be cared for like regular teeth with regular flossing, brushing, and mouthwash. Bi-annual cleanings at Washington Elite Dentistry will help to polish away stains from the composite resin. With ideal care, bonding and contouring can last as long as ten years. During your dental examination, we can help you determine if the dental bonding and contouring procedure needs to be done again to maintain your smile.

About Us
Can dental bonding and contouring fix multiple aesthetic concerns at once?

Absolutely, dental bonding and contouring is a versatile treatment that addresses a variety of cosmetic dental issues. At Washington Elite Dentistry, our skilled team can tackle chipped, cracked, and stained teeth all in one go. With the use of composite resin, we can also fill in gaps between teeth or elongate a tooth that may be shorter than the others. This allows you to walk out of our Washington, D.C. office with a rejuvenated, multi-faceted smile after just a single visit.

How long will the results of dental bonding and contouring last?

The longevity of the results can vary depending on several factors, like your oral hygiene routine and lifestyle habits. However, with proper care, dental bonding and contouring can last anywhere from 3 to 10 years. Our team recommends avoiding hard foods and substances that could potentially chip the bonding material. Regular check-ups at our dental clinic can help us assess the condition of the bonding and make any necessary touch-ups.

Are there any restrictions on food or drink after the procedure?

After undergoing dental bonding and contouring, it's generally best to avoid foods and beverages that can stain your teeth for at least 48 hours. This includes coffee, tea, red wine, and dark-colored fruits and vegetables. The composite resin used in the procedure is porous and can absorb stains more easily during this initial period. Following this guideline will help maintain the aesthetic results of your procedure, making sure your smile stays bright and beautiful.
