Tooth bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment that changes the shape, color, and position of teeth. Dr. Paul Karpovich provides teeth bonding treatment to patients in Timonium, MD.
Dental bonding is a simple treatment typically used to address minor restorative and cosmetic dentistry concerns. To give our patients the most natural-looking, durable result, we use a composite resin material that can be molded and color-matched to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. Restore the look and function of your smile with an economical option using tooth bonding.
What Can Tooth Bonding Treat?
If you are looking for a solution to address any of these imperfections, dental bonding can be implemented to:
- Fix gaps or spaces between the teeth
- Brighten stained or discolored teeth
- Add structure to chipped or cracked teeth
- Restore misshapen teeth
If you have discolored or damaged teeth, please contact our office for an appointment. We will be happy to help you find the right cosmetic solution for your specific need.
Dental Bonding Treatment
Before treatment, Dr. will review your dental history, budget, and goals with you to make sure that tooth bonding is the right option. He will remove a small portion of the tooth enamel so that the bonding material may adhere properly. Then, Dr. Karpovich shapes and molds biocomposite material onto the tooth. When it is the desired shape and size, Dr. Karpovich uses a special curing light to complete treatment.
Tooth Bonding vs. Porcelain Veneers
Although they may be used for mostly the same purposes, dental bonding and porcelain veneers vary in price and longevity. Dental bonding is often a more temporary fix for dental issues and is typically used while patients decide on a more permanent restoration.
Tooth bonding is not permanent but it can last for many years with the proper care. If you want to try a permanent option like dental veneers down the road, our dental team can help you explore your options. Dental veneers are a permanent fix to most cosmetic dental issues.
