Tooth Bonding What to Expect

Is dental bonding right for you?

Your tooth bonding procedure may be able to be completed during a single visit, depending on your cosmetic needs and oral health issues. Dr. Desbordes will determine the best treatment plan to achieve your optimal oral health. Any recommended restorative procedures will be done prior to composite bonding.

Dr. Desbordes will first prepare your teeth for the treatment. He will remove a minimal amount of tooth enamel surface structure to make room for the composite material to be sculpted.

The material will be color-matched to your natural teeth for beautiful and natural-looking results. Dr. Desbordes will skillfully sculpt the material into the desired tooth shape. The composite resin is then cured to hardness with a special light. Once thoroughly dry, the material is polished and smoothed for a natural-looking luster and beautiful results.

You can trust our comprehensive dentist in Baltimore MD for all of your dental needs. We will create a custom treatment plan unique to your dental needs. Schedule a cosmetic consultation with Dr. Desbordes today.

Tooth Bonding FAQs

Can dental bonding last forever?

No, dental bonding is not meant to last forever. Bonding will last as little as 3 years but can last up to 10 years. To increase the longevity of your tooth bonding, you should maintain proper oral hygiene. You should also avoid habits that will increase the risk of chipping such as chewing on hard objects.

Is tooth bonding painful?

In most cases, the tooth bonding treatment is pain-free. If anything, it will relieve the pain felt from a cracked or chipped sensitive tooth.

Is dental bonding covered by insurance?

It depends on the reason you are getting the tooth bonding treatment done. If used for cosmetic reasons such as gapped, discolored, or misshapen teeth, dental insurance will most likely not cover it. However, if it is to repair tooth damage such as chipped or cracked teeth, then your insurance may partially cover it.
