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 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.
Washington Elite Dentistry Reviews
top-notch dentist and staff. reasonable and transparent pricing. pristine office space. A++
Very happy I stumbled upon Washington Elite Dentistry! The staff was friendly, attentive and even made sure I scheduled a follow up appointment for soon after.
Dr. Berman and her staff are the best! I hadn’t been back to work in DC since Covid in 2020 and they got me right in for a cleaning. I have had painful experiences with dentists in the past but I feel safe and comfortable under Dr. Berman’s care. I appreciate the entire staff, from dental assistants to the front office, they take time to explain procedures & costs to you and work with you to achieve the most favorable outcome. I highly recommend them.
Top notch, one stop shop for all your dental needs. Modern office, close to the Metro, staff clearly dedicated to superior customer service skills.
Dr. Berman and her staff are extremely personable and they worked extra hard to make sure my filling was perfect.

Dental Bonding and Contouring FAQs
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.
