Dental Bonding | Doylestown PA
Bonding can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored or misarranged, and is an alternative to veneers.
How does it work?
The tooth is prepared for the procedure by lightly etching the surface and applying a bonding liquid. Once the liquid sets, a plastic resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape by the dentist. Once set, the resin is trimmed, smoothed and polished to a natural appearance.
The bonding procedure can often be completed in a single office visit, and can improve the appearance of a tooth significantly. However, since the plastic resin used is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel, it is more likely to stain, chip or break than natural teeth.

Our Latest Patient Testimonials
Dr. Mendlowski is a superb dentist, for this procedure & all the others I have had for many years. He is kind, curious, friendly, up to date with the newest & most time-tested procedures, & is technically precise & excellent. He is able to say when he needs to refer me to an additional practitioner, & has followed up persistently. One of his hygienists noticed a strange spot on my tongue. When over a year later it began to change, he sent me to an oral surgeon. When she was unresponsive he got me to another immediately. When cancer was diagnosed he followed me medically, but also personally, with warmth & emotion. The lesion was surgically removed & was caught early enough so that no chemo or radiation was needed. Dr M & his whole staff have been wonderfully supportive & warm. I am forever grateful to them for their dental care & their human care.
