What Is Dental Bonding?
You can't always avoid accidents. For example, you might trip or bite into something hard that chips your tooth. Your tooth might also get stained by certain foods, drinks, or an illness. This is why Dr. Harshit Aggarwal and Dr. Leonel Perez perform dental bonding, a treatment used to correct these small cosmetic flaws. An easy, effective process, dental bonding uses composite resin to mask discoloration, fill gaps between teeth, lengthen a tooth, or even improve the shape of a tooth. For an effective way to improve your teeth, schedule a consultation at the Center for Dentofacial Aesthetics in Annandale, VA to learn more about dental bonding.
What Can I Expect from Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding can usually be performed in one visit in our office in Annandale, VA. You should not need any anesthesia, but sedation options can be discussed during your consultation if you have any fear, anxiety, and a strong gag reflex. As soon as you are comfortable, Dr. Aggarwal or Dr. Perez will apply the bonding material to the desired teeth with the help of one of their dental assistants. The composite resin will be hardened before more layers are added. After the layers of composite resin are done, the filling material and your natural enamel will be polished for an even finish.

Dental Bonding FAQs
How long does dental bonding last, and what can impact its longevity?
Dental bonding typically lasts anywhere from 3 to 10 years, depending on the individual's oral habits and the location of the bonded tooth. Factors that can impact the longevity of dental bonding include chewing on hard objects, grinding or clenching teeth, and poor oral hygiene. Regular dental check-ups and proper care can help maintain the appearance and function of the bonding.
Can dental bonding be repaired if it gets damaged?
Yes, if dental bonding gets chipped or damaged, it can usually be repaired or touched up. It's essential to contact your dentist as soon as you notice any issue so they can assess the damage and determine the best course of action. Repairs can often be done quickly, restoring the appearance and function of the bonded tooth.
Are there any special dietary restrictions to follow after getting dental bonding?
While dental bonding is durable and allows you to eat most foods, it's wise to avoid certain items that could cause damage. Hard or sticky foods, such as ice, hard candies, or chewy caramels, can potentially chip or dislodge the bonding material. Discussing your diet and eating habits with your dentist will provide specific guidance tailored to your individual situation and bonding treatment.
