Dental Restoration Through Bonding

Dental Checkup

Bonding is one of the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental procedures available for dental restorations. The entire procedure is done to aesthetically correct imperfections in a person’s smile. Chipped teeth are one of the most common dental injuries among people in the United States. Children and adults who participate in sports are among those who receive the most chips in their front teeth. A soccer ball, baseball bat, foot, or helmet to the mouth can immediately chip a tooth. Dental bonding is a relatively easy fix for teeth that are chipped or for teeth that have a gap between them. At Green Dental of Alexandria we are pleased to provide expert cosmetic dentistry to the residents of Northern Virginia.

Dental bonding is a restoration procedure done to correct missing parts of the teeth – either where teeth have been chipped off or where there are gaps between the teeth. Bonding is done through the application of a tooth colored composite resin. This resin can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth, and it is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of the teeth. Dental bonding is a highly popular choice among parents whose children have received a chipped tooth because it is relatively painless and does not require anesthesia. The tooth that needs restoration will be slightly etched to roughen its surface in order to help the bonding material adhere to the tooth. The resin will then be applied, molded, and smoothed until it is the proper shape. The resin will then be hardened with a special UV light and then polished until its sheen matches that of the normal teeth.

If you or a family member has a chipped tooth or a gap between teeth that needs to be restored, please contact Green Dental of Alexandria today. We recognize that cosmetic dental procedures are generally not covered by insurance, and we will work with you to offer affordable rates, flexible and in-house payment plans. We look forward to helping you achieve and maintain a healthy, beautiful smile. Call us today.

I just had my first appointment at Green Dental and I couldn't be happier with their service. I tend to be nervous when going to the dentist, but all of the staff were very welcoming and nice. The exam chair massages your back as you're getting your cleaning and there's a television on the ceiling to distract you from dental work. The cleaning and evaluation was very gentle. Thanks, Green Dental!

Top shelf dental care. Convenient location via METRO/King Street Station. Patient's dental chair features back massage capability along with TV viewing (CNN). Dr. Hye Park is very smooth. Dental experience beyond compare. I actually enjoy going to the dentist now.

Once again, even the cleaning was uneventful. Love being able to look outside while I'm in the chair. Dr. Park has the most gentle & tiny hands ! Love this place and the staff.
