Dental Bonding Overview
Dental bonding is among the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dentistry procedures to improve a smile. At The Washington Center for Dentistry, Dr. Daniel J. Deutsch and his team use state-of-the-art technology and cosmetic dentistry techniques to improve the look of a patient’s teeth and the quality of his or her smile. They will apply a matching tooth-colored plastic material to the tooth that they will harden with a special light. This light ultimately bonds the material to the tooth. Then, the doctor shapes the material into the desired length and width and polishes the surface to match the sheen of the rest of the tooth’s surface.
Patients leave with an instantly transformed smile without the need for extensive, anxiety-inducing dental work. The only thing a patient has to deal with is a spectacular, dazzling smile!
Dental Bonding Reviews
"Dr. Rinaldi is an artist. I couldn't have asked for a more amazing cosmetic dentist. I visited for a filling replacement on a front tooth on which a previous dentist had done a horrible job. I was convinced that I would need a crown to cover up the tooth. With a simple filling, Dr. Rinaldi made it look like nothing had ever happened. I couldn't believe my eyes. However, be aware that this office is very expensive. But if quality is what you are looking for, this is the place."- A.K. / Yelp / Jan 24, 2012
"Dr. Rinaldi repaired a chipped tooth perfectly -- and just 2 weeks before my wedding! - Katherine Cyrul"- Google User / Google / Jul 09, 2012
"Dr. Fordjour is a lifesaver! I broke a front tooth and needed an emergency fix. Dr. Fordjour saw me with less than 24 notice. His assistant, Lisha, was very personable and made sure I was comfortable during the repair. Dr. Fordjour was professional, personable, and made me feel very confident that I made the right choice. My tooth looks great, and I'm very grateful!"- M.K. / Google / Jan 29, 2017
"With a sudden break(large chip) in my front tooth, I was concerned about getting through the week. Dr. Deutsch squeezed me in within three hours of my phone call-and he was scheduled back to back with clients. I left the office looking better than before the chip had occurred! Expertise and precision puts the doctors and office staff at the top of my list."- A.B. / Google / May 07, 2017
"I chipped my tooth last night and Dr. Katsaros was able to see me the next morning. He was friendly and caring, as always. The hygentist who met with me, Rachel, was also great and very throughout!"- J.M. / Google / Jul 31, 2018

Uses of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is useful:
- To repair decayed, chipped or cracked teeth.
- To improve the appearance of discolored teeth.
- To close spaces between teeth.
- To make teeth look longer.
- To change the shape of teeth.
- To offer a cosmetic alternative to amalgam (silver) fillings.
- To protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede.
What Are the Benefits?
There are many advantages to dental bonding, including bonding is the least expensive of most, if not all, cosmetic procedures. Also, dental bonding can be done in one office visit, whereas porcelain crowns and porcelain veneers must be manufactured in a laboratory. Another advantage to bonding is that only a very little bit of tooth enamel is removed. Many cosmetic dentists view dental bonding as best suited for minor cosmetic changes and for correction of teeth in areas of very low bite pressure (front teeth). Because bonding can chip, it is very important to avoid practices such as nail biting, chewing on ice and other hard food/objects and using your teeth to open things to preserve the bonding's integrity.
