How long does dental bonding last?
This is dependent on the location of the tooth treated. If the tooth is on the very edge of your tooth, it may not last long because of biting forces and the type of food you chew. Hard, chewy or crunchy foods will weaken bonding faster than soft foods will do. However, on average, a tooth colored bonding can last between 4 to 8 years.
How do I care for my bonded teeth?
There is no special care needed for composite bonding. Just like you would for normal teeth, you can also brush and floss bonding areas without any fear of damage. However, composite bonding candidates should avoid foods like tea, coffee, dark cola, tobacco or red wine. All these foods can increase the chance of having the treated tooth stained in no time.
Will composite bonding match my teeth?
Yes, composite resin material can be used to match the shade of your teeth. That way, it will not be clear to anyone that you had dental bonding performed on your teeth.
Can the procedure be used to address all oral issues?
Composite bonding can address a wide range of dental issues like fractures, breaks, and discoloration, but it is not a fix-all solution at all. For instance, it cannot be used to address issues like an infected tooth.
Is the procedure painful?
No, the procedure is absolutely comfortable. You may feel us working but it will not cause any discomfort.
