Dental Bonding FAQs
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure used to improve the appearance of teeth by applying a tooth-coloured composite resin material to the tooth surface. The resin is shaped and bonded to the tooth, correcting imperfections such as chips, cracks, discoloration, or gaps.
No, dental bonding is typically not a painful procedure. In most cases, it can be performed without the need for anesthesia. The dentist will prepare the tooth surface by roughening it slightly, then apply and shape the composite resin. However, local anesthesia may be administered if dental bonding is used to fill a cavity or repair a sensitive tooth.
The dental bonding procedure’s duration depends on the treatment’s extent. Generally, bonding can be completed in one visit to the dentist and usually takes around 30 minutes to an hour per tooth. However, more extensive bonding treatments may require multiple visits. Check with your dentist for more advice!
The lifespan of dental bonding can vary depending on several factors, including oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and the location of the bonded tooth. On average, dental bonding can last between 5 to 10 years. The longevity of dental bonding can be extended with proper care, such as regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups.
While dental bonding materials are resistant to staining, they may become discoloured over time due to exposure to certain foods, beverages (such as coffee, tea, or red wine), and habits like smoking. Avoiding these staining agents and practicing good oral hygiene can help maintain the appearance of dental bonding.
