Dental Bonding A Non-Invasive Solution for Tooth Repair

dental bondingWhat is Dental Bonding? Dental or tooth bonding is a procedure where your dentist applies a tooth-colored composite resin to one or more of your teeth to repair damage which ultimately "bonds" the material to the tooth to restore or improve person's smile. If you have a chipped, cracked, or discolored tooth, a cosmetic dental procedure like tooth bonding can give you the confidence to flash those pearly whites again. 

Advantages of Bonding: 
  • Bonding usually can be done in one office visit unless several teeth need to be fixed. 
  • Compared with veneers and crowns, in bonding less amount of tooth enamel is removed. 
Disadvantages of Bonding: 
  • Although the material used in dental bonding is somewhat stain-resistant, it does not resist stains as well as crowns or dental veneers. You may develop some discoloration if you smoke or drink a lot of coffee. 
  • The composite resin used in bonding isn't nearly as strong as a natural tooth. Biting your fingernails or chewing on ice or pens can chip the material. 

How to care for bonded teeth: 
  1. Brush at least twice a day and flossing daily 
  1. Avoid hard food and candy 
  1. Do not bite your nails 
  1. Avoid coffee, tea, and tobacco for the first two days after the procedure to avoid stains 
  1. Schedule regular dental cleanings every six months 

How Long Does Bonding Material Last? 
The lifespan of bonding materials for the teeth depends on how much bonding was done and your oral habits. Typically, however, bonding material lasts from three years up to about 10 years before needing to be touched up or replaced.
