How long does dental bonding last?
The number of years that dental bonding lasts varies on the size and location of the procedure. Dental bonding can last for 5 years or more. With proper care, it can even last 10 years.
While dental bonding is not a permanent way of fixing teeth, it will last for many years. To increase the lifespan of bonding, we recommend maintaining good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing, avoiding hard foods like candy and ice, and paying attention to teeth grinding during sleep. Even with cosmetic dental work, it’s important to visit your dentist for biannual cleanings and exams.
If you grind your teeth at night, a custom night guard will protect your bonded teeth from damage.
Is bonding good for your teeth?
Teeth bonding is safe and can fix cracks or breaks in teeth using a composite material. It’s the easiest and most affordable way to fix a tooth effectively and is a painless procedure. Unlike porcelain veneers, dental bonding doesn’t require the removal of your enamel and won’t harm your tooth structure.
The composite resin used in bonding is safe and looks like your natural tooth. It’s important to note the resin is not as strong as your enamel, so biting nails or eating hard food should be avoided.
Does tooth bonding hurt?
No, tooth bonding does not hurt. It’s applied directly onto the tooth and does not cause any pain or discomfort.
Does tooth bonding look natural?
Yes, tooth bonding looks natural. The composite resin used for dental bonding is made to look and feel like a natural tooth, and we’ll color match the resin to your existing teeth.
