Dental Bonding

Dental Bonding is a restoration procedure in which a tooth-colored resin is bonded to a tooth and cured with an ultraviolet light. Bonding is faster and less expensive than veneers or crowns, and can thus be a good option to make small cosmetic improvements to your teeth. Unlike veneers and crowns, bonding can be done within one office visit since nothing has to be custom made by a dental laboratory. Additionally, the procedure typically requires removing less of the tooth enamel compared to veneers and crowns. However, since bonding typically doesn’t last as long as other forms of restoration and is less resistant to stains, it is used more often for small cosmetic touch ups rather than major restorations.

How its done

The bonding procedure typically requires between 30 to 60 minutes to complete for each tooth. First the dentist determines exactly what color shade your teeth are to select a resin that will blend it naturally. Once this is done, your Burke VA dentist will prepare the tooth so the bonding material will adhere easier. This involves roughening the surface of the affected tooth and applying a liquid conditioner. Once this is complete, your dentist will apply the resin to the tooth, and cure it in place using an ultraviolet light. Finally, your dentist will apply the finishing touches by shaping and polishing the resin for a good fit.

Our Happy Patients

"My husband had to have a root canal for a tooth that had been hurting for more than two years. Dr. Vij and his staff were outstanding. The treatment was effective and Dr. Vij was happy to explain all procedures to him. He has been searching for years for a family dentist and now we have found one. We recommend Dr. Vij to everyone looking for a friendly, professional, and effective dentist."

"I developed a small fear of Dentists mainly due to bad experiences when I was a child. I avoided visiting the dentist for more than 8 years. After constant nagging from my girlfriend I decided it was time for a clean up and boy did I go to the right place. From the start, I was given exceptional service from Dr. Vij and his wonderful staff. I have been to his practice a few times now and I have nothing to say but great things. Dr. Vij showed me the before and after pictures of my gums and they look GREAT!
I definitely recommend this practice to anyone, especially those who have any Dental phobias!
Pros:
Dentist: Dr. Vij Does an excellent job explaining every procedure. Created a great game plan to get my gums back to health!
Procedures: No pain no irritations.
Great Staff - Casey does a great job breaking down the prices for procedures (what insurance covers etc. )
Cons:
None! Just wish I didn't wait 8 years to go to visit a Dentist again haha."
