What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a safe and minimally invasive treatment that can do wonders for your smile after one visit. A more affordable option than porcelain veneers, dental bonding uses a tooth-colored composite material to repair:
- Decayed teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Discolored teeth
- And more!
If a cosmetic imperfection is holding your smile back, dental bonding may be the treatment for you.
The Dental Bonding Process
Since dental bonding a tooth only takes about 30 to 60 minutes, you won’t be at our office for long. You most likely won’t have to take anesthesia either because that’s only necessary for a decayed tooth that requires drilling or a chipped tooth close to your nerve.
Your dentist will roughen your tooth’s surface and use a conditioning liquid in order for the composite to stay on. So the composite takes the shape of your tooth, your dentist will shape and polish it so you can leave with a new, natural looking smile!
How Long Does a Dental Bonding Treatment Last?
How long your dental bonding treatment lasts largely depends on your oral habits. Since they aren’t as strong as natural teeth, chewing on hard foods too firmly can break the bonding material. Smoking and drinking too much coffee or soda can result in the composite staining sooner than it would otherwise.
However, if you take care of your oral health, your dental bonding treatment can last up to 10 years. Discuss your oral health habits with your dentist so you know how to make your new and improved smile last as long as possible.
