If you are experiencing any stained, chipped or imperfect teeth, the process of bonding may be the solution you need. The dental bonding process fully covers any flaws and can quickly restore your teeth leaving you with a dazzling smile.
How Does Bonding Work?

The process must be handled by an experienced dentist to correctly bond teeth. Dr. Omid Barkhordar is a respected and well recognized cosmetic dentist in the Downey area. Dr. Barkhordar guarantees that his help with bonding can:
- Restore teeth with areas of decay
- Repair any chipped teeth

- Lengthen teeth that may be too short

Is Dental Bonding the Answer for You?
We offer many options and solutions at Downey Dental Arts, and bonding may be the procedure that is best for you and what you need. We employ a range of dental techniques so that we can help to identify the most effective resolution for your specific issue. Imperfect smiles can also be corrected with crowns or veneers. We would love for you to come in for a visit at our office to talk to our experienced, highly skilled and friendly staff who can help you identify your dental needs and learn which option can work best work for you.
Bonding is one of the easiest and inexpensive process for a smile enhancement. The dental bonding process involves the removal of less of your natural tooth enamel than crowns or veneers. Caring for your bonded teeth is vital as the materials used are less stable and stain easily. Crowns and veneers are much more durable and longer lasting. We will take the time to explain and go through every procedure thoroughly and come up with the best and most suitable treatment plan for you. Dr. Barkhordar will give you your first consultation and all issues will be addressed to fully understand the advantages of each process. We guarantee that you will be fully informed of all options before making your decision and you will understand which restorative procedure will be best for you to correct your dental issues.
The Bonding Procedure
Dental bonding, in almost all cases, is pain-free. Dr. Barkhordar will perform the bonding process without the need of anesthetic. The first step is the use of a “shade guide” to select the correct bonding material and to perfectly match the color of your other teeth. The next step of the process involves what is called an etching tool, used to prepare the surface of the tooth and to hold the bonding materials securely in place.
Once the tooth surface has been prepared, a conditioning liquid is applied to the surface area. This conditioning liquid helps the bonding material adhere to the natural tooth. The next step of the process is when Dr. Barkhordar’s skills come into play, as the bonding material (a type of resin) will be carefully molded to match with your other teeth. Once the molding of the new tooth is completed, a special blue light is used, which bonds the material to your tooth. The final step is refining the shape of the bonded tooth for a perfect result.
After Bonding: Caring for Bonded Teeth
Maintaining your bonded teeth isn’t difficult with the correct amount of care. You will need to practice normal good hygiene, brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice a day. The bonding materials can chip or break if you bite down on harder foods or chew on pens, ice, or if you tend to bite on your fingernails. Please try to avoid these habits to keep your bonding intact. You will also need to come into the office every six months for your check-up and cleaning. With careful care and attention, bonding generally lasts for three to ten years. A touch-up is recommended after this duration to help repair any areas that need attention so you can maintain you perfect smile.
