Tooth Bonding FAQS

What is tooth bonding?

Tooth bonding uses tooth-colored composite resin to replace missing tooth structure. Tooth bonding requires very little tooth preparation. Tooth bonding treatment can usually be completed in just one short visit to our Ellicott City dental office.

What problems can tooth bonding fix?

Tooth bonding can be used to address chipped teeth, fractured teeth, discolored teeth, and gapped teeth.

Does tooth bonding hurt?

Tooth bonding does not hurt. Dr. Becker and his dental care team make sure that patients receive exceptional dental treatment in a safe, comfortable environment.

How long will tooth bonding last?

Tooth bonding is not a permanent treatment. However, with proper care and maintenance, tooth bonding can last years. If necessary, Dr. Becker can make adjustments to teeth that have been previously bonded.

What happens during the tooth bonding treatment?

The affected tooth may need to be etched to prepare it for the bonding process. Next, Dr, Becker will shape and mold the composite resin onto the tooth. The composite resin will be cured using a specail light. Once the composite resin is cured, Dr. Becker will polish the tooth, giving it a natural, healthy-looking finish.
